FCP Material Handling Platform Solution

Case Study: FCP Material Handling Project with a RiteHite GateKeeper Safety Gate

Client Challenge: A way to safely and effectively transport products up to the 2nd floor without jeopardizing floor space on the 2nd floor.

FCP Solution: FCP material handling safety platform equipped with a RiteHite GateKeeper safety gate to allow for safe loading and offloading while maintaining the existing footprint on the second floor.

RiteHite GateKeeper Material Handling Platform Solution: Kingston specifically liked FCP’s design as they liked that they were a local vendor who understood the ins and outs of California code while providing a superior design from a bracing standpoint (no knee braces required). There will be the occasional time when a tall piece of equipment may need to go through that area and they did not want the knee braces to interfere with that or require them to run the material sideways underneath the platform.

Our primary selling point/ differentiator was that we were local and had done similar platforms in the area. I was able to leverage the superior design which they really liked, while showing them photos from a couple of local jobs that we did. 

Another aspect that they really liked was the partnership between us, which allowed us to integrate both products seamlessly with each other. They had gotten some individual platform quotes and tried to find safety gates that would work within the footprint, but having a team that could ensure proper fit took the liability off of their hands. 

Ultimately, the client is very satisfied with the application and the platform. I am confident if any other platforms arise then we will be the first ones they call.
