Roll-X-Cage - Features & Benefits

So what’s wrong with steel cages?  If you are on this site, we think you are probably already well aware of the multiple problems associated with steel roll cages.  But we’ve compiled a small list, just to remind you.

Steel Cages – The Rap Sheet

There are many well-known problems associated with the use of conventional steel roll cages, such as

  • They rust easily and become unhygienic
  • They can be buckled and bent
  • They are difficult to repair
  • They are noisy in use
  • They lack rigidity
  • They are heavy and difficult to manoeuvre.  The weight of the cages also makes them expensive to transport.
  • They have finger traps
  • If damaged, they can have sharp protrusions dangerous to operatives
  • They are top heavy and can be unstable on uneven ground
  • They are stolen and lost in massive quantities
  • They are difficult to assemble, disassemble and nest
  • The carbon in the steel creates shadowing, making them unsuitable for x-ray scanning in a secure environment

Our range of plastic cages were developed to address all these issues to provide users with a high quality, cost-effective alternative to steel roll cages. Click here to find out more about the Roll-X-Cage and the Rollet and what they can do for your business.

Roll-X-Cage Features & Benefits

  • Highly durable plastic construction which will not rust.  It is easy to clean and can offer additional piece of mind through the optional addition of antimicrobial additives.
  • The plastic panels are double-walled making them highly resistant to impact damage.
  • Should the unit get damaged, its modular construction allows it to be quickly and easily repaired.
  • The combination of plastic panels along with the use of sound-reducing rubber castors makes the unit quiet in use.
  • The double-wall design and secure locking of each panel in the construction gives the unit a high level of rigidity even when fully loaded.
  • The use of plastic makes the unit light, and the smooth running rubber castors make it easy to manoeuvre.
  • The smooth seamless plastic construction makes the unit safe to use with no protrusions or finger traps.  Moulded handles make the unit easy to pull or push.
  • Being light and rigid, the unit remains stable even on uneven ground.
  • Made from self-coloured plastic available in a variety of colours, the units are very distinctive.  Units in a corporate colour with the addition of a moulded-in logo have proved much less likely to be stolen or lost.  For added security the units can also be fitted with an optional RFID tracking chip.
  • The simple hinge design for the doors, roof and base make the unit quick and easy to assemble, disassemble and nest.
  • The all-plastic construction of the side panels and doors makes the unit ideal for use with x-ray security scanning equipment at airports, etc because the plastic does not cause shadowing of the image which occurs with metal rollcages.
  • Full length locking door on one side, with split locking stable door in the other make the unit flexible to use.  The use of the optional central shelf provides two secure separate compartments.
  • The locking clips on the doors can be used with a variety of security seals as well as padlocks.
  • Being made from plastic the units are easy to recycle at the end of their life.
