Fully Tapered and Polished Forklift Forks
China Supplier and Factory – JOYEAR’s fully tapered and polished forklift forks are a perfect solution for handling lumber, sheet rock, and other stacked materials with ease. The fully tapered and polished finish reduces friction, consequently making it easier to separate and load layered materials. All forks are made of a premium steel blend in addition to a full heat treatment process. As a result, this extends the life of the fork by reducing damage from impact and stress, especially in cooler climates.
Full Taper Forks (FTP)
Often referred to as Lumber Forks or Plywood Forks, these fork tines are different than standard taper forks in the sense that the taper starts near the heel and continues all the way to the the tip of the fork.
Tips on fully tapered forks are typically squared off, with a chisel tip making them on the tips thinner than standard forks. The purpose of this style fork is to effectively and efficiently lift bundles of wood building material without damaging the load with a forged finish or narrower contact surface.
FTP Style Forks are also used frequently when “scooping” un-palletized loads directly off of the ground or floor. The Full Bottom Taper allows the chisel tip to sit directly on the ground to be effective in this application.
