Truck Turntables

Small spaces? Restricted access? High delivery volumes? Macton vehicle turntables turn logistics and traffic nightmares into safe, efficient solutions for maneuvering in restrictive spaces. A Macton vehicle turntable can be installed in a building on grade, or between levels of a parking garage, or outdoors to suit site conditions. Standard units are available up to 70 feet in diameter and with 100,000 lb. capacities. Custom-designed turntables with larger diameters or higher-load capacities can also be provided. Faced with ever increasing challenges for effective space utilization and reduced operating costs, vehicle turntables offer architects and owners proven solution to new money-saving design options.

Save on Upfront Construction Costs – Macton's heavy-duty vehicle turntables can lower initial building costs by providing a reduction in the overall amount of space needed to be set aside for vehicle deliveries – in particular, it eliminates the dead space needed for turning areas and the added parking bay locations that would otherwise be needed as trucks back up waiting to get into the building – in a typical building, a truck turntable takes up less than a quarter of the space compared to the space it would take to handle the turning area for a tractor-trailer. In addition, these turntables help you reduce the cost of the overall facility by allowing greater freedom to locate structural columns.

Save on Ongoing Operational Costs – Macton's heavy-duty vehicle turntables provide ongoing cost benefits to building owners by reducing congestion and delivery times. By turning a truck around in 30 to 60 seconds, delays caused by the lengthy maneuvering of trucks and tractor-trailers in confined building spaces are avoided. As a result, fewer building personnel are needed to guide drivers, more of the dock capacity is freed-up, and indoor emissions are reduced.

Reduction in Delivery Hassles and Safety Hazards – A Macton vehicle turntable provides easy building entry and exit for trucks, reducing accidents and damage to trucks, structural columns, pedestrians and material left about. Turntables can drastically reduce traffic backups and hazards outside the building and the need for dangerous curbside docks for loading and unloading. They also reduce the need to assist and guide truckers as the trucks maneuver in tight spaces.

Long-Term Reliability – Macton turntables have been in service for decades and move smoothly and quietly day in and day out for years – in fact, to our knowledge, none of these systems has ever failed to operate within the specified design criteria where proper minimal maintenance was performed.

Minimal Maintenance Required – These systems require only a minimal amount of routine maintenance each year, which can be scheduled for times when the facility is not normally in operation – as a result, this minimal annual maintenance does not entail operational disruptions or expensive downtime for the servicing of this equipment.

Full Support of Architect Throughout Project – Macton provides full support throughout the entire project, beginning with the initial design of the system to be built, during which time Macton’s engineering staff interfaces with the project’s architects to provide the practical assistance and the detailed technical support needed to integrate its equipment into the overall installation. This support includes providing foundational, electrical and control requirements, trim details, data for structural analysis and any other assistance the project requires.

Ease of Equipment Installation – Macton provides a specially-trained field engineer or technician to supervise the installation, start-up and commissioning of its equipment, ensuring that it is brought on-line quickly and delivers the expected performance.

Ongoing Post-Sale Support – Macton also provides long-term spare parts and technical support services. Long-term service contracts are also available at each of these installations for periodic inspection and maintenance programs, as well as training services, as needed. In addition, Macton provides customers with the ability to easily upgrade their control panels, drives and other systems to ensure they reflect the latest in technology.

Standard 5 Year Warranty – The equipment is warranted to be free from defects in material or workmanship for a period of five (5) years from the date it’s shipped from Macton’s facility.  Accordingly, during such 5-year period, Macton will repair or replace any such defective parts or equipment at Macton’s cost (including covering all shipping costs).  If required to trouble-shoot such equipment, Macton will provide the services of an onsite field service engineer, and if any such defects are found to exist, Macton will pay the labor and travel costs of such field service engineer.  This warranty is void if the equipment is installed without supervision by a Macton representative.  This warranty does not cover: (i) water damage, or damage due to chemical corrosion or from dirt or debris on or around the equipment, (ii) any damage caused by improper use or accident, or from the failure to perform the recommended periodic maintenance on the equipment, (iii) normal wear and tear, (iv) portions of the equipment repaired or modified by others without Macton’s prior written approval, or (v) any additional onsite labor, tools or equipment required for the inspection, removal and reinstallation of any parts of the equipment.
