Features & Benefits

Material Handling Equipment
  1. GRID DESIGN

    • Designed to deliver more power for a longer life
    • More positive grid tapered wire “arteries” for better electron flow
    • Purposeful grid design and inset lugs for low-resistance power
    • Optimized corrosion radius for efficiency

  2. STRUCTURAL DESIGN

    • Built for the real world
    • Tray paint is powder coated for durability
    • Color-coded cabling makes installation accurate and easy
    • Lifting ears are integral to the tray
    • Thermo-bonded cover to jar seal to provide protection against leakage
    • Jar bridge supports the structure and helps prevent shorting

  3. PASTE FORMULA

    • Ranks as one of the best across the industry
    • High positive paste density and interconnected crystal structure for extreme durability and resistance to failure
    • Robust negative paste thanks to proprietary expander formulation and high paste density

  4. SEPARATORS

    • For improved performance and maintenance
    • Wavy “S” rib design fixes separator in place for no movement even in heavy vibration applications.
    • Separators mix the electrolyte efficiently, minimize plate exposure, and help prevent shorts
