The EK series

Ergonomics and comfort

Tilting side gates

With the tilting side gates, the gripping depth into the shelf is increased by up to 20 cm, avoiding strain to the driver’s back during intensive order-picking work. A high-quality gas spring returns the cabinet to the vertical position.

Tilting console

The control panel that can be swivelled left and right improves ergonomics and comfort in extensive order-picking work. Access to the carrier is even more unobstructed and freedom of movement is increased.

Foldable Seat

Folding seat

With a folding seat, the seating surface can be swivelled upwards. The back of the seat cushions the back during standing operation, which has efficiency advantages during intensive order-picking work.

At higher room temperatures, the fan mounted in the cab increases driver comfort.

Makrolon cab with optional air-conditioning unit

In unheated warehouses or during transfer journeys outdoors, the Makrolon cab provides optimum protection from draughts and weather conditions. The front pane can be removed, so occasional order picking is no problem. The optional cab heating makes for a particularly cosy workplace. If the vehicle is used at very high room temperatures, on the other hand, an air-conditioning unit makes working conditions pleasant in the cab.

Operation with twist controls

The vehicle’s functions are controlled by rotary movements of the wrists. The functions are approved by visual sensors, like those used in the ball handle bar. Redundant preselector keys guarantee flexibility.

Operation with single-function or multi-function lever 

The functions are controlled by joystick via movements of the driver’s shoulder and elbow joints. In the multi-function lever, the preselector keys are integrated into the lever. This makes operation just as fast as it is for the ball handle bar or the twist controls.

Split control panel next to the seat

The controls are integrated into the armrests. A split control panel is useful for cabs that can be accessed from the front, e.g. in vehicles with an order-picking platform
