Jialift Australia proudly offers customers an extensive range of forklift extension slippers and material handling equipment at affordable prices across Melbourne.
Jialift Australia has a vast range of forklift extension slipper sizes for sale to suit most forklifts (also known as forklift tyne extensions). Fork slippers are attachments ideal for lifting crates and smaller machinery items. These temporary extensions should not be used as a permanent fixture on forklifts and forklift operators need to use extension slippers carefully.
Why Would You Need a Forklift Extension Slipper?
Forklift extension slippers are a type of safety device attached to a forklift’s fork. They are designed to prevent the forks from extending beyond the safe working limit, which can cause the load to become unbalanced and tip over.
They are usually adjustable so they can be set to the correct length for the particular load that is being lifted. When the forks reach the end of their travel, the fork slippers come into contact with the floor and stop the forklift from moving any further.
Forklift Extension Slippers are used to help prevent accidental damage to goods and materials that may be stored on the forks of a forklift. They are also used to help keep the forklift’s load level, as well as to protect the operator from potential injuries.
Are Different Sizes Of Forklift Extension Slippers Available?
Our forklift slippers come in a range of sizes that are designed and manufactured per Australian Standard AS 2359.15 in high tensile grade steel. Per AS2359.15 fork slippers used for general usage should be no longer than 167% of the supporting tyne’s length. If the slippers are longer than 167%, then the usage of those slippers shall be restricted to their specified application.
