Flexco recently announced the release of its new lightweight cleaning pole.
With safety being the top priority for major Australian mine operations, Flexco Australia has made it its mission to engineer products that make it easier to reduce risk of serious lost time injuries. With manual handling accounting for over 30% of Australia’s workplace injuries, the obvious choice was to limit the amount of manual handling needed during cleaner installation by creating a lightweight pole.
Flexco’s lightweight pole presents a weight reduction of up to 60% when compared to standard mild steel cleaner poles. An easier product to lift, carry and install allows operators to optimise safe lifting procedures onsite.
Adding to the benefits of the lightweight pole is the universal plate, which allows a variety of Flexco primary and secondary cleaners to be fitted to the pole. The versatility of the plate makes it easy to stockpile in the case of unscheduled downtime.
