Questions to Ask When Buying Man Baskets

If your company is in the market for a man basket, you understand that it is a pretty unique process. It’s not as simple as purchasing more printing paper from your office supplier or buying a gift card on Amazon.

Buying a man basket for your business does and should take research. You want to make sure you find the highest quality man basket that is well-suited for your job. During your search there are some critical questions you should ask any potential vendors.

What are the specs?

Your first question will undoubtedly be geared towards the specifications of the man basket. The specs are an important piece of information because it needs to fit the job you are using it for.

You’ll want to know width, length, toe guard height, handrail height, and the size of the mesh screen. For example, Medlin’s man baskets come in a variety of widths and lengths. They all feature a 4 inch toe guard, 42 inch high handrail, and 84 inch high back screen.

What sort of safety measures are implemented in the manufacturing of the man baskets?

One of the most important questions to ask is what kind of safety measures were designed into the man basket. At Medlin Ramps, we design all of our products with an OSHA philosophy. Our man baskets allow your employees to safely and securely access elevated locations. We even have an expanded metal back screen to provide additional safety for employees in the man basket.

What materials are used to build your man baskets?

Another question to ask in your search for the perfect man basket, is what type of materials they are made from. Flimsy materials are not safe for your employees. Medlin uses heavy duty tubular steel, along with non-slip diamond plate floor for personnel security.

Are there any customizable options?

One final question you might find yourself needing to ask is in regards to customizable options. Not every manufacturer will provide customizations for your man baskets, and depending on your needs, that might be okay. However, for specific projects it is good to know your options.

Medlin man baskets offer tube caddy swing gates, casters, tool trays, folding back screens, and even custom pockets for large forks.
