Toyota Material Handling Europe (TMHE) receives Quiet Mark for its silent material handling equipment
The BT Lifter Silent hand pallet truck and the BT Levio Silent forklift from Toyota Material Handling Europe (TMHE) are labelled with Quiet Mark by the Noise Abatement Society for their sustainable features.
Two of Toyota Material Handling Europe (TMHE)’s trucks have received the Quiet Mark recognition for being among the world’s quietest and therefore environmentally conscious products. This initiative aims to reduce the noise pollution from various appliances and to encourage global companies to develop silent products that improve the quality of everyday life.
Built with high quality rubber steering, powerthane bogie wheels, frames with shock absorbing material to reduce vibration noise and adjustable rubber studs, the BT Lifter Silent is quiet but powerful. The BT Lifter Silent hand pallet truck with an operating noise of no more than 60 decibels - the volume of a conversation - upholds the Toyota standards of uncompromised quality, is user-friendly, ergonomic, easy to maintain and robust. With a unique lifetime guarantee on the fork frame, a five-year guarantee on the pump unit and tow bar, and 20% less operating sound than a standard hand pallet truck, the BT Lifter Silent is the quiet handling solution.
TMHE’s BT Levio Silent (toyota-forklifts.eu) was also awarded with Quiet Mark for its built-in sustainable elements. This model respects the same quality demands as the standard truck but has an additional unique lifting system, improved tolerances and soft high quality wheels that make it more “silent” in handling. Furthermore, vibration dampening and sound reducing material are strategically placed inside the chassis.
Both BT Lifter Silent and BT Levio Silent are outstanding pieces of material handling equipment. Ideal during after-hour deliveries and in residential areas, they allow for efficient loading and unloading while protecting the quality of life for customers, employees and people living around shops and stores.
“Today, we are proud to have this label on two of our trucks and we continue to invest in delivering high quality products that benefit both society and the environment. Our focus is on creating a reliable and sustainable business for our customers and on being responsible together,” says Niclas Sternerup, Director of Product Management, Toyota Material Handling Europe.
