Gondola Skate introduces new Rhino II fixture system at IMHX
Gondola Skate, a leading manufacturer of fixture mobilization systems for the retail and warehousing industries, launched its flagship product, Rhino II, to the UK market during the 2016 IMHX conference in Birmingham.
Designed to meet the needs of large retailers that frequently redesign store layouts, Rhino II enables customers to move gondolas and other freestanding fixtures easily and efficiently. In fact, the product can mobilize shelving units in 15 minutes or less with as little as four employees – without the need to demerchandise product.
Unlike traditional moving equipment, which is often quite heavy and burdensome, Rhino II utilizes two core components in its design to maximize functionality. First, the patented rack connection system with high-load wheel bearings allows for a smooth transition over any finished surface. Second, the bulldog style, sidewind jack crank assembly enables the safe and smooth lifting of any fixture, minimizing damage to the floor and injury to the user.
“As the pioneer and world leader in developing fixture mobilization systems, Gondola Skate is committed to engineering innovative products that help to shape the retail industry and strives to meet future safety challenges and standards,” said Frank Charles Cozza, CEO, Gondola Skate. “Rhino II does just that and is set to revolutionize the way the industry thinks about fixture mobilization. Already, Rhino II has helped B&Q save hundreds of thousands of pounds per remodeling project, so the potential for the UK market as a whole is tremendous.”.
Rhino II is the result of nearly 20 years of research and development and maintains strict adherence to the safety standards set forth by the Storage Equipment Installers Registration Scheme (SEIRS) initiative, which is considered the industry benchmark. It has also been selected as a finalist for the IMHX Design4Safety awards, racking and storage category, which recognize innovative thinking in improving safety standards. Winners will be announced on Thursday, 15 September 2016 at the SHD Logistics Awards ceremony.
The IMHX conference is the largest meeting place for the UK’s logistics industry, convening more than 20,000 logistics and supply chain professionals every three years. This is the first time Gondola Skate has exhibited its fixture mobilization systems at IMHX.
