      • Bendi Arctic

      • The Bendi Arctic Saves You More

        With the cost of storing pallets in a cold store being up to 3 times higher than a conventional ambient warehouse, any small reduction in space required can dramatically reduce costs. The Bendi can show up to 50% aisle reduction offering huge benefits to cold store costs.

        Bendi Arctic Cab - designed in isolation to perform without compromise

        A cost effective solution which provides the operator with a safe, comfortable working environment and increases productivity through a reduction in the work breaks required for operators in forklifts without cabs.

        The Bendi Arctic cab is a departure from normal cab design in that it is a complete standalone unit, sealed off from cold from all sides, connected to the chassis by rubber cab suspension and the fly by wire controls. A 2KW dual stage heater provide the the initial heat but the cab is highly insulated to retain heat and maintain operator comfort.

        The all-round vision is second to none through heated laminated toughened glass.

        Heavy duty door hinges and a secure door locking system provides a seal against the cold which will stand the test of time. Access in and out of the cab is effortless with the optional new Bendi control pod which floats to the drivers lap and then tucks away nicely to provide enough room for bulky cold store clothing to be removed and stored behind the driver’s seat if required.

        Features
        • Operates in a 1600mm aisle to give up to 30% more pallets.
        • More pallets mean less empty space and therefore less wasted energy cost.
        • Smaller aisles mean smaller buildings and less build costs.
        • No expensive guidance system needed.
        • Floor design with the Bendi is far less expensive than for VNA or reach truck resulting in huge potential savings.
