ThermoAssist and ThermoAssist+ from Crown Equipment Corp. offer cold-storage companies more economical and ergonomic ways to improve the comfort and safety of operators working in freezer environments. Lift-truck operators no longer have to wear layers of clothing or work from specially fitted cabs to stay productive and warm. The ThermoAssist system will keep them toasty with pad heaters for the back and arm, a console enclosure, and a mast air deflector that redirects airflow away from the operator. Additionally, ThermoAssist+ provides warm air to the multi-task handle and steer tiller through adjustable vents. A leg and foot warmer, available on certain models, directs heat at the operator's feet and lower legs for added comfort.
The warming features found with ThermoAssist and ThermoAssist+ offer a viable alternative to add-on cabs, which provide some relief from the elements but limit visibility, mobility, and communication with others. Users will discover increased productivity from improved operator comfort, reduced fatigue, and fewer or shorter warm-up breaks.
