Platform trucks are wheeled carts with a flat deck that allows large or heavy materials to be efficiently loaded and unloaded onto or off of the trucks to move the materials from one place to another. Steel-deck platform trucks are the standard choice for moving large or heavy items in industrial facilities. Corrosion-resistant metal-deck platform trucks are made from aluminum or stainless steel and resist rusting when exposed to moisture. Powered metal-deck platform trucks are motorized, which helps reduce straining and injuries and increase productivity when moving heavy loads. Plastic-deck platform trucks resist damage from impacts and withstand exposure to chemicals and moisture. Wooden-deck platform trucks make less noise and are less likely to damage delicate materials and finishes on products carried on the trucks than metal-deck platform trucks.
