Trilogiq has extended its Graphit system with the addition of caster corner-plate components that increase the number of configurations possible when creating adaptable trolleys, racks and other bespoke mobile structures. The corner-plates are designed to connect the system’s tubes and create a sturdy and rigid yet lightweight base for the mobile structures to stock, store and transport items in a wide range of industries and applications. They can be used with a variety of wheels and casters and, like other components in the Graphit range, are available in carbon fibre and glass fibre to combine maximum strength with minimum weight. The Graphit system is available exclusively in the UK from The Tube & Bracket Company.
Introduced earlier in 2014 the Graphit system comprises a complete set of composite, aluminium and stainless-steel components including tubes, connectors and roller beds that can be assembled into adaptable structures for industrial applications. The components are up to 86% lighter than conventional steel-based modular systems, produce stronger joints and are resistant to liquids, contaminants and corrosion. Graphit is the first fully-reusable system of its kind which means users can maintain maximum efficiency in evolving environments while achieving excellent value and rapid return on investment.
Graphit connectors are up to 60% lighter than comparable steel components. The VeryGrip coupling mechanism incorporates high performance thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) which provides a highly accurate and secure grip which cannot be over-tightened and does not damage or mark the tube or joint. All components can be reused as often as required without affecting the structural integrity or appearance of the installation. The weight saving that can be achieved with Graphit allows users to configure trolleys and other mobile installations that are easier to handle and move than similar designs constructed using steel components. Graphit is the only system of its kind that offers these benefits.
Graphit tubes are available in a choice of carbon fibre, anodised aluminium or stainless steel in a variety of finishes and shades to complement the colours of the connectors. They can be supplied in 2.5mm gauge for standard applications and 3.0mm gauge for heavy duty applications. Aluminium tubes are 65% lighter and carbon fibre tubes 86% lighter than steel alternatives. Like other modular systems the tubes can be supplied, or cut on site, to any length to create the desired configuration and dimension for the application. The end stops are supplied with clean profile lines to guarantee consistent seating inside the joint.
In addition to the connectors and tubes a roller track component is available in various lengths so that users can incorporate live racking in their installations, for example to support line-side delivery or replenishment of fast-moving inventory. Trilogiq’s extensive range of wheels and accessories can all be used with Graphit to provide users with complete flexibility to design and configure their installations for maximum efficiency and productivity.
