Since 1963 Blue Giant has been a leading solutions provider in the loading dock and material handling industry. We are proud to continue this tradition of product innovation with the Blue Giant AirFlow Series of HVLS fans, which combines a sleek silhouette with leading-edge technology and spectacular results.
An innovative airfoil system and ultra-effective wingtip fences make Blue Giant AirFlow fans more efficient than conventional HVLS fans. Each unit has an aerospace-inspired blade design that moves more cool air in summer and distributes ceiling-level heat in winter, complementing existing HVAC systems and reducing energy bills by up to 30%.
Blue Giant Equipment Corporation is pleased to announce the launch of the BGNR-30 Walkie Reach Stacker, which combines the maneuverability of a straddle stacker with the flexible operation of a counterbalanced truck.
“The BGNR-30 improves productivity and optimizes space,” says Barry Miwa, Sales Manager for the Blue Giant industrial trucks division. “By combining the strongest operating features of a straddle stacker and a lift truck, it helps operators perform tasks more efficiently and in tighter spaces, letting facilities increase rack storage without having to move to a larger building.”
Blue Giant Dock Seals and Shelters have always added value wherever they are installed. They enable a tight seal to keep contaminants out and conditioned air in, and create a safer workplace by preventing rain and ice from accumulating in the loading area. Blue Giant is excited to announce the launch of an Elite series of high-performance loading dock seals and shelters that accomplishes all this, and more.
“The Elite Series meets several needs at once,” says Jeff Miller, Blue Giant Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Each model maintains a tight contact area against the trailer, which prevents refrigerated air loss in cold storage facilities and keeps energy costs more stable. By supporting a superior level of energy-efficiency, the Elite Series improves a site’s eligibility for government incentives.”
Blue Giant is pleased to announce the launch of the RVR303, the latest solution in the award-winning StrongArm™ vehicle restraint series. This new hydraulic restraint has a recessed hook design that is compatible with the newest challenges facing the material handling industry.
“The RVR303 meets the changing needs of loading dock customers,” confirms Jeff Miller, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing at Blue Giant. “Growing trends like intermodal shipping have created a greater variation in trailer configurations. The RVR303 is designed to safely and intelligently accommodate both standard and non-standard ICC bars, making it a genuine asset in today’s changing dock environment.”
Blue Giant is pleased to announce the launch of the HingeMaster™, a leading-edge dock shelter solution that seals hinge gaps on barn door-style trailers while allowing full and unrestricted access to the trailer interior.
When barn-style trailer doors are open, the resulting gaps between the door and the trailer create the equivalent of a 2-1/2 sq. foot hole in your building wall. The HingeMaster™ design, with its polypropylene J-Hooks, latches onto the sides of the trailer, closing off the hinge gaps and maintaining a snug seal while allowing full unrestricted access to the rear of the trailer.
Blue Giant Equipment Corporation has added a new walkie counterbalanced stacker to its Big Joe by Blue Giant line of AC-powered industrial trucks.
The CB-33, which has a 3300lb load capacity, can transport and stack pallets that straddle stackers find challenging to handle.
As a leading provider of loading dock and material handling equipment, Blue Giant takes pride in offering customers a full line of Aftermarket products, all designed to enhance comfort, safety, and productivity at the loading dock.
Therefore, we are pleased to announce that air curtains have been added to our Aftermarket portfolio, expanding our range of customer solutions.
The Blue Giant Vertical Storing Dock Leveler is a preferred solution for climate-controlled and energy-efficient facilities and applications.
In accordance with a company commitment to continuous product development, Blue Giant has designed and released the VL Dock Leveler, a next-generation model that adds greater levels of safety and versatility to dock operations.
Spring is here, and as the weather grows warmer, more facility managers will want to leave their overhead doors open.
Access to fresh air and natural light enhance employee well-being, but open doors also invite pest infiltration, trespassing, and theft. The solution? Blue Giant bug screen doors.
