DURASWEEPER® has a unique process for removing snow from the roof of commercial vehicles and school buses in a quick, safe and efficient matter.  DURASWEEPER® automatic circuitry technology senses barrier on the rooftop and adjusts to optimally remove snow.

Increase Safety, Reduce Liability, Reduce Fuel Costs:

Safety – 14 states have “Ice Missile” laws or pending legislation squarely aimed at commercial vehicle operators regarding falling snow and ice from rooftops.

Fuel Saving – a snow load on top of the vehicle adds weight and increases drag resulting in reduced fuel mileage.

Easier to Move Aluminum Dock Boards

We heard from many of you that you wanted this option.

Another way to stay cool – Think Snow!

DuraSweeper

We may be in the thick of a heat wave, but it’s never too early to start thinking about the winter months and how to deal with the snow. We developed and introduced the Durasweeper®, designed to take snow and debris off the top of a vehicle roof before it gets on the road. Our unique, patent-pending, brush mechanism protects the driver from harm when removing the snow, and it clears the snow without damaging the body of your vehicle. Watch the video below to see our Durasweeper in action.

Snow causes transportation issues including accumulation of snow on the top of fleet vehicles  This causes a multitude of safety and cost issues with large fleets.  Snow can become:

  • Unsafe to clear – most existing snow removal equipment involves workers in the snow
  • Costly – overtime and workman compensation accidents add up quickly
  • Tragic – snow becomes flying debris when snow-covered fleets enter roadways causing accidents and in many states, creating law enforcement issues.

Looking for a better way to help your customers with these issues?  Give us a call to help “Remove Snow Before They Go” .  If you have any questions or would like to speak to a representative, please contact Jae Bills at 800-433-2212 or send an email.

Conveyor Crossover

What is a Conveyor Crossover?

A conveyor crossover is a specifically designed product that allows personnel to safely cross over active conveyors at designated locations. A crossover provides an increase in worker safety and can dramatically enhance the efficiency of workflow.

Bluff Crossover – Longest Span and Fully Customizable 

Bluff conveyor crossovers are customized to each application and uniquely designed with your specific application needs in mind. This provides yourcrossover customers with the access they need where they want it.

Bluff offers the longest unsupported span in the industry. We can span 16 ft without a leg in between with a stair or a ladder on each end of the crossover. Bluff’s welded steel construction provides a longer life cycle and reduces maintenance costs. Bluff crossovers can be used in indoor and outdoor applications.

Things to Consider Before Purchasing 

When discussing a conveyor crossover, take into consideration the height, length and width of the conveyor. Also, consider how much space is needed for exiting the crossover. You will want to leave yourself a sufficient amount of space to determine whether you need a vertical ladder, ships ladder or OSHA stairway.
