Tipping skips 'top rate'

08 October 2015

Two specialist products from forklift attachment company Contact Attachments are being used to streamline processes at a busy manufacturing site in St Leonards on Sea.

Plastica Pools, the UK manufacturer of specialist swimming pool covers, liners, and reel systems, called upon Contact Attachments to provide two Tipping Skips, used to help the company store and dispose of waste materials more effectively.  


Jason Cadman at Contact Attachments said: "The Tipping Skip we recommended to them is ideal for handling waste that is light, such as paper, cardboard and packaging – and in their case, off-cuts of swimming pool covers and accessories. With a mesh extension on three sides providing an extra 500mm of cubic volume capacity, they can handle the maximum amount of waste before being tipped into the compactor."


The meshed extension Tipping Skips provide a high capacity and additional robustness without increasing the skip’s actual weight, and is one of Contact Attachments’ many Tipping Skip models, which includes regular and heavy duty bins, and auto release tips. 


Ady Hall, production buyer at Plastica Pools, said: "The quality of the skips was top rate, however this pales into insignificance with the quality of service we received as a result of us ordering the wrong size of skips – they couldn’t have been more helpful in averting a potential disaster!"
