About the Artist
The Transroller is a tool used for the handling of heavy and cumbersome loads. As an example, one can move things such as sheet materials in a safe manner and with significantly reduced effort compared to more tradition methods.
The Transroller integrates a clamping feature that allows it to secure its load in place. It is essentially a gravity activated clamp combined to specially profiled wheels. Only one Transroller is usually needed in most situations. The Transroller is placed near the center of gravity of the load, which provides a central pivot around the wheel axis for easy manipulations. This characteristic facilitates moving the load around, especially in tight surroundings. The Transroller is designed to resist to the heavy duty usage expected in industrial environments such as manufacturing plants and construction sites.
