Suburban Seating & Safety has a large selection of material handling truck seats for your consideration. What do we mean when we talk about “material handling”? This refers to the short-range transportation of materials inside a building, like a warehouse, or from a building to a vehicle, such as a semi-truck. In a lot of cases, this function is fully or mostly automated. Conveyor systems, for example, are commonly used to get materials from one area of a facility to another. But much of the time, the material handling process requires the aid of human operators who use carts, forklifts, and similar types of vehicles to haul goods around. For a number of reasons, it’s important to ensure that people employed in this capacity can benefit from the use of high-quality seats while performing their duties.
It’s a simple fact of life that seats will wear out with repeated use. Even so, a lot of warehouse managers and professionals in similar roles tend to resist upgrading old seats in forklifts and related material handling carts and vehicles. But this negligence can expose you to serious problems. Seats perform valuable safety functions. They keep the vehicle operator securely in place at all times, even while navigating sharp turns in crowded spaces. In a warehouse space filled with human personnel and valuable equipment, it’s vitally important for forklift drivers to remain always in complete control of the vehicle—but that may not be possible if they’re riding in a worn, poorly secured seat. That’s why you should turn to our inventory of material handling truck seats to keep your vehicle fleet in tip-top condition.
