Capacity Safety Factors Regarding Heavy Load Lifting
Our advertised load capacity is rated well below the breaking point so the dollies and skates are built to safely operate at full capacity.
Capacity can mean different things so please find below an explanation for your understanding:
- Breaking point: At which point will the skates break?
- How close to the breaking point is the capacity advertised?
- Failure to operate: At which point will the wheels stop rolling & turning?
Safe Working Load Capacity: Our advertised load capacity refers to the maximum amount of weight our dollies and skates are designed to safely carry while maintaining easy rolling and turning. The breaking point and the failure-to-operate point are well above this capacity allowing the dollies and skates to be operated at the maximum rated load weight. NEVER EXCEED this Safe Working Load Capacity.
Safety Capacity: The dollies and skates possess a safety capacity above the advertised load capacity to protect against limited temporary overloading due to impact loading or unexpected shift in weight. Operating the dollies and skates above the rated capacity and within the safety capacity means more effort is needed to roll and the user will notice an increase in rolling resistance. If the safety capacity is maxed out, the wheels will stop rolling and start dragging behind and turning becomes impossible.
Dynamic Load Capacity: The load limit above which the dollies and skates will permanently deform and fail (breaking point) in motion is rated above the Safety Capacity.
Static Load Capacity: The load limit above which the dollies and skates will permanently deform and fail (breaking point) at standstill is rated above the Dynamic Load Capacity.
