Transporting Tough Loads is Easy with Our Rubbermaid Sheet and Panel Trucks

rubbermaid sheet panel truckWhat can you move with a Rubbermaid 4468 Sheet & Panel Truck from RJ Cox?  Let us think about that for a minute.  Maybe we should ask, “What can’t you move with a sheet and panel truck from Rubbermaid?” 

Can you transport a Lion pride and school of saltwater fish?  Would it work for delivering 100 gallon drums full of hazardous materials? In both of those cases, we would have to admit that the Rubbermaid 4468 Sheet & Panel Truck is probably not the right tool for the job.

But if you ask any our customers who have helped put this Rubbermaid product on our “Top Sellers” list how they put these durable and maneuverable transportation tools to the test, we are sure you will get a wide-range of answers.  If you have large, hard-to-handle objects like mattresses, doors, tables with folding legs, cubicle walls, lumber and sheet panels, then this sheet and panel truck will handle the job perfectly, easily and safely.

What really makes these Rubbermaid sheet and panel trucks hot sellers here at RJ Cox comes down to the quality of the product.  And like all Rubbermaid products, these load transporters are the highest quality and come with a complete list of features.  Below are a few of those features which have our customers giving these workhorses a thumbs up.

The long service life and durability of these Rubbermaid 4468 Sheet & Panel Trucks comes from the duramold precision engineered resin and metal composite structure construction.  The vertical frame is 27-inches high and the deck is textured providing support and reducing slippage  for large, hard-to-handle items.  And if your load includes smaller pieces, the perimeter deck channel keeps those items from falling off the deck during transport.

Maneuverability – when it comes to large loads – is another of the many benefits these sheet and panel trucks offer our customers.  They feature two fixed and two swivel castors for optimal control and maneuverability.  There are also molded-in tie-down slots for load security and safety.

No matter how you look at it, these Rubbermaid sheet and panel trucks are the perfect tool for moving loads around the office, factory or workplace.  If they didn’t live up to their Rubbermaid label, then you definitely wouldn’t see them on our best-sellers list.  And remember, it was you – our customers – not our staff who put this product on our best-selling RJ Cox products list.

If you would like to learn more about the Rubbermaid 4468 Sheet & Panel Truck, please feel free to contact us here at RJ Cox.  And if you are one of our customers who already own one or more of these Rubbermaid products, please share your “load of choice” or the strangest load you’ve ever moved with these sheet and panel trucks.  We’d love to hear your stories even if they are tall tales.

Nursing Home Equipment to Enhance the Quality of Life of Our Elderly

RJ Cox - Nursing Home EquipmentAs many of you know, RJ Cox is proud to be a family-owned Australian company.  For us, family is very important, and we understand that it is just as important to our customers.  Caring for our older family members is just as important.  That is why, here at RJ Cox, we proudly deliver the highest-quality products and supplies for the nursing home industry.  We’d like to share a few of these product offerings.

As we know, elderly patients in nursing home care are often confined to their beds.  If patients are unable to leave their beds to move about, then often the bed must move for them.  This is where the Electrodrive Gzunda Bed Mover GZSL becomes extremely helpful and beneficial.  These Gzunda bed movers allow a single person to move a nursing home bed and patient easily, safely and comfortably.

GZ10_ElectrodriveA few of the features of these bed movers from Gzunda include: 500kg capacity, push-button hitching, quiet and emission-free motor, height/reach adjustable handlebar and easy to use controls.  These Electrodrive Gzunda Bed Movers are compactly designed but built to last as they are constructed out of durable stainless steel tyne.  The bed movers are easy to operate, extremely maneuverable and feature an emergency stop button for safety.  Both patients and nursing home employees will find these bed movers from Gzunda useful and comfortable.

Even when a nursing home patient is not bedridden, the patient may not be fully-mobile.  In these cases, one of our Liberty mobility scooters or wheelchair aids will be beneficial in helping the individual get around in the nursing home setting.  Presently, we offer our customers a choice of 5 options when it comes to these wheelchair aids and mobility scooters from Liberty.

RJ Cox - Liberty Classic Mobility ScooterOur line of Liberty mobility scooters includes the following models: Classic, Elite and Lite.  Each model offers its own unique features and benefits which you can review on the RJ Cox website.  However, each provides its user a benefit that can not be measured in numbers or dollars.  Each Liberty mobility scooter enhances the users quality life by allowing them the freedom to go and do like they could before losing some of their mobility.

Another option for nursing home patients with limited mobility are our wheelchair power drive attachments.  We offer two options – the Liberty Samson PD6 and the PD-SA by Torza.  Each of these battery-powered wheelchair motors are easy to use, lightweight for transport and simple to attach and detach.

The above are only a sample of our product offerings for nursing homes.  To see a complete list of these high-quality product offerings, visit our hospital and nursing home equipment page on our website.  Have any questions about our bed movers, mobility scooters, wheelchair aids or other products for nursing homes and nursing home patients?  Make sure to contact your friendly, helpful RJ Cox team member.
