Your going to flip over these rigid wire baskets with fork tunnels. The primary purpose of adding fork tunnels to a rigid wire container is to allow you to flip and dump contents out of the containers. This is a very popular feature for our customers in the scrap business. It is the only safe way to tilt and dump product from a scrap bin without it falling off the forks.

Fork Tunnels also known as fork tubes are full length pockets that extend from one side of the container to the other. The are completely enclosed steel tubes that accept the forks of your forklift. They secure the basket to the forks of your forklift and allow for safe transportation. Much like a fork stirrup they secure the basket to the forks for safety. But keep in mind they are a more expensive option than fork stirrups.

Rigid wire containers with fork stirrups only allow you to fork the container from two opposite sides. That is unless you have us laser cut opening into the side of the fork tunnels which is an expensive proposition. To do this we need to send the fork tunnels out of house to a laser cutter to have them specially cut. Therefore it is best for you to accept the fact that the rigid wire container with fork tubes will have two way entry.

So to recap, the two primary advantages to adding fork tubes to a standard rigid wire container is that they secure the container to the forks for safety when transporting the wire container on a forklift and also when stacking the container at high elevations. The second primary advantage is that they allow you to dump the contents of the container without the basket falling off the forks. But keep in mind that you will need a forklift that has rotating forks to accomplish this task.

TIP FROM THE PRO’S: By default we always add the fork tubes to the widest side of the container so the fork truck will enter on the widest sides. When optional fork tunnels are installed we recommend they be installed on the fork entry side. The part number -FT2 signifies two way fork tunnels running in one direction. We can also provide 4 way fork tunnels but they are significantly more expensive because they require some laser cutting.

TIP FROM THE PRO’S: PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT OUR SOLID CORRUGATED STEEL CONTAINERS ARE LESS EXPENSIVE THAN OUR RIGID WIRE CONTAINERS – AND OFFERED IN THE SAME SIZES. IF YOU CAN TOLERATE SOLID SIDES AND BASE PANEL YOU CAN SAVE MONEY BY SWITCHING TO A CORRUGATED STEEL CONTAINER.
