3 Reasons To Choose Alwayse When You Need A Ball Transfer Unit

In 1941, we developed an idea that would move the world: Ball Transfer Units (BTUs). Their revolutionary ‘all-ways’ directional capability became synonymous with the company, from which Alwayse was born. Your business needs to move heavy loads with accuracy and efficiency and that’s where a Ball Transfer Unit comes in. But why choose Alwayse?

1. Our Design and Construction

A Ball Transfer Unit is a multi-directional materials handling system created by Alwayse to provide smoother and more precise movement of loads.

It consists of a large load-bearing ball which sits upon many small balls encapsulated in a hemi-spherical cup. By reducing friction, it allows heavy loads to be moved with a minimum of effort. What’s more, it allows easy 360° movement of loads. Instantly.

Our Ball Transfer Units are completely manufactured in the UK, where we can guarantee their build quality. And each unit goes through a rigorous testing process.

2. Our Commitment to Sustainability

Climate change is one of the most important challenges facing businesses in the long term. We all have a responsibility to reduce our carbon footprint as much as possible. Alwayse Ball Transfer Units offer a truly carbon neutral method of moving loads as they don’t use an energy source. Plus, because of our build quality, you’ll only need to buy an Alwayse Ball Transfer Unit once. That reduces the total carbon footprint and your energy consumption even further in comparison to products with a lower level of quality.
