Platform Trucks, Platform Carts 


Performance Platform Trucks – The Best Value Anywhere

The Glaro Glider all-purpose Platform Carts, Platform Trucks, and Utility Carts are the most versatile of their kind.  When design and appearance are important, Glaro Glider Platform Trucks and Luggage Carts are products that satisfy the requirements.  With many options available, these durable but attractive ”work-horses” are built strong for demanding industrial settings, hospitality, healthcare, office, educational, transportation facilities, or for general use at any property.  These platform trucks are made to transport every type of material or package easily.  Top property managers and purchasing professionals recognize the advanced qualities and know that Glaro Platform Trucks and Carts are the best value on the market; they provide optimum performance year after year. 

Quick Ship Platform Trucks

All Glaro Platform Trucks and Platform Carts are prepared immediately for each order and are promptly shipped within a few days.  All carts and trucks are shipped K.D. to minimize freight costs. All models can be shipped via UPS.  They are easy to assemble in a matter of minutes. 

Platform Truck and Platform Cart Ergonomic Handles

Glaro design and engineering are geared for versatility as well as durability.  That is why there are models in the Deluxe and Value Series with one and two heavy gauge 1.5” diameter ergonomic aluminum handles.  Differing from the Value Series, the single handle models in the Deluxe Platform Truck Series have an additional tubular end rail with grill, opposite the handle, to better contain cargo during transport.  This end rail with grill, an attractive design feature, can be removed to accommodate oversized freight that may overlap.   

Platform Truck Bumper Systems

The Deluxe Series of Platform Trucks features the upscale Glaro wrap-around solid rubber non-marking black or gray bumper.  They are attached to the deck with a durable and decorative full wrap around aluminum extrusion that matches the metal finish of the cart handles.  This wrap-around trim is decorative as well as functional as it encases all the edges of the deck covering so the edges are not exposed.  This series includes decorative trim rings around the base of the handle tubes as well.  The Value Series features a tough full wrap-around non-marking vinyl black or gray bumper that neatly meets the edge of the deck covering.  The vinyl bumper is connected directly to the deck. 

Platform Truck Deck and Chassis Construction

Uniquely designed and engineered these Glaro Glider platform carts feature a thick, all weather, plywood deck, mounted to a heavy duty powder coated steel chassis which is available in four convenient lengths (35’, 40”, 48”, and 60”).  All decks are 24” wide.  The materials used and the design will insure that these Platform Trucks, Luggage Carts, and Bellman Carts will stand up under any weather conditions wet or dry, hot or cold. 

Platform Truck Deck Coverings

Four deck coverings are available to suit every type of facility: stain resistant Olefin carpeting available in several colors, attractive black or gray coin design non-slip vinyl, clear coated satin aluminum, and hardened steel in a choice of black or silver vein baked powder coated finishes.  An additional twenty seven optional powder coated finishes are also available.  All models are fitted with a tough non-marking full-surround bumper.  Deluxe models have an additional aluminum extrusion encased deck edge and decorative aluminum trim rings at the bottom of each handle.                                                                       

Platform Truck Casters

Casters are one of the most important components responsible for the longevity and performance of all platform trucks.  All too often manufacturers cut back by offering small diameter, or non-ball bearing, or plastic casters that reduce the life of the platform truck, reduce load capacity, create noise during operation, make them difficult to operate, and lead to caster failure putting the trucks out of service and consuming valuable maintenance time.  That is why Glaro Glider Platform Trucks use only the best 8”diameter ball bearing rubber casters.  Optional brakes are also available. 

Four Wheel Models

Four wheel models are standard.  Two swivel and two rigid solid rubber casters absorb shock and move quietly over hard or carpeted surfaces, efficiently transporting 1500 pounds or more of supplies, luggage, or equipment.  Specify the optional “pneumatic wheel” upgrade for a more cushioned ride.  

Six Wheel Performance Option for Glaro “Pinpoint Maneuverability”

For additional load capacity and unsurpassed “pinpoint maneuverability” order the Glaro “optional 6 wheel configuration” available in solid rubber or pneumatic casters.  Transport heavy loads with ease and control with Glaro 6 wheel models.  These impressive models enable the operator to turn and navigate anywhere including tight corners and narrow passage ways while safely avoiding contact with personnel, walls, and objects.  They can rotate in place for a U-turn in a hall or in an elevator for speed and efficiency.  Walls and door frames will not get “banged up” as operators can either push or pull the trucks easily from either end. 

Removable Side Containment Rail Option

For Deluxe models or two handled Value models, consider the” optional removable side containment rails” to better secure small parcels during transport.  Because of the built in spring action they may be easily used or removed on one or both sides.  They are an excellent choice for transport of small, multi-stacked, or light packages over uneven or irregular surfaces.
