Adnams Wins Cellar Lift At SIBA ConferenceSouthwold-based Adnams is the lucky recipient of a new Penny Hydraulics Cellar Lift after the result of a competition was announced at the SIBA Annual Conference in March. Penny Hydraulics offered the prize to commemorate the 20th anniversary of its popular device which has been installed at thousands of pubs and breweries throughout the country. It is used for handling beer containers and other items in and out of cellars to avoid the need for manual handling, helping users to comply with health and safety regulations and making better use of their premises. The company will install the Cellar Lift in one of Adnams’ 70 pubs throughout East Anglia later this year.
The Cellar Lift is designed for handling barrels, casks, crates and related items in and out of cellars without any manual lifting for greater efficiency and compliance with health and safety legislation. Vertical, sloping and compact models are available with lifting capacity up to 300kg, equivalent to a full 54 gallon barrel.
All Cellar Lifts are manufactured for the specific location following a site survey by specialist Penny Hydraulics engineers. With its ability to operate in vertical or sloping positions the unit can be installed in almost any situation, even older pubs where the layout can present problems for less versatile alternatives. The sloping model, for example, is ideal when an existing skid cannot be removed or when the cellar is offset from the delivery point.
Penny Hydraulics provides a complete design and installation service with a nationwide network of engineers to minimise downtime and ensure continued product reliability. Its comprehensive after sales service and maintenance programme offers complete peace of mind and helps customers meet their statutory inspection and maintenance obligations. The company works closely with trade associations and helped the Health and Safety Executive to devise the Code of Practice for Beer Deliveries that is now the accepted industry standard.
