Sferopratic SystemÂŽ Type 3 â€“ Rev. 5
MODULAR ROLLER FLOOR “SFEROPRATIC SYSTEM®” Tipo 3 – Rev.5 A.G.A. Sistems Trading srl is the exclusive manufacturer of the "Sferopratic System®” a modular support roller floor (International and Italian Patent Pending). The Company deals with the designing, supplying, maintenance and warranty of the system.
“Sferopratic System®” solves the problem of the manual handling and storage of air cargo 463L pallets and similar with several advantages:
Practicalness: one or two people can easily move a full loaded pallet (up to 10,000 lb)
Economy: makes excellent use of floor space than using the forklift, and maximises the area in which pallets can be stored.
Modularity: it adapts to any space, even with irregular perimeter, and its modularity allows the rapid deployment
Safety: it allows easy and completely safe walking thanks to the special disposition of the balls and to the tread aluminum floor tiles
Versatility: you can store and handle any type of load with a rigid base, weighing up to 5000 kg/m2 (1,000 pounds per square foot)
Adaptability: the adjustable hinged feet enable it to be installed perfectly level even on uneven surfaces and the floor height can be set at variable levels
Simplicity: “Sferopratic System®” Type 3 - Rev.5 the latest version, is made of only four basic elements that can easily be boltless assembled without the use of any tool. 2
SYSTEM DESCRIPTION The exclusive roller ball floor system “Sferopratic System®” Type 3 – Rev.5 (International and Italian Patent Pending) is an extremely tough modular raised floor, built to withstand over 5000 kg/m2 (1,000 psf) over time for the manual handling and storage of 463L pallets.
The "Sferopratic System®" is currently produced in three types, of which Type 3 – Rev.5 is particularly suitable for the handling and storage of NATO standard pallets type 463L and similar used by the U.S. armed forces and other armed forces as well as ULD air containers used for air cargo transport. The use of the "Sferopratic System®” allows for:
Reduced staff for manual handling (one or two people can easily move the type 463L pallet or ULD AIR CONTAINER loaded evenly up to 10,000 lb)).
The increase of the storage capacity of the site where it is installed as the entire floor area can be used, given the ease of manual handling in any direction and with reduced action area.
Work safely, as the system is equipped with special pallet stops and the balls placement is designed to allow the operator to have enough free space to stand firmly on the floor of non-slip aluminum tread plates. 3
Eliminating the use of expensive anti-explosive handling equipment as bridge cranes, special forklifts etc. in warehouses where explosive and/or flammable materials are stored.
Installation where the absence of electrostatic charges (ESD) must be guaranteed (explosives, hazmat...), as the system cannot develop them.
System installation even in irregular floored rooms as the system is provided with adjustable supports with hinged feet that allow installation of the system perfectly leveled and in line with standard cargo loader or loading platforms.
Set up of sorting and storage depots where there is no electricity or where it cannot be used, totally eliminating electricity consumption costs.
Minimal costs and times of routine maintenance of facilities and handling equipment.
Easy removal and adaptation to other facilities using the same elements.
Stowing and deploying using minimum space as all of its parts can be easily dismantled and put in normal containers.
Easy individual replacement of each component of the structure.
Easily build loading platforms anywhere in the roller floor perimeter, as the platform’s elements perfectly fit with the standard modules.
COMPONENTS DESCRIPTION The “Sferopratic System®” Type 3 – Rev.5 is essentially composed by squared 50 cm modules made by the boltless assembly of only 4 basic elements:
1 – Support feet: besides holding 4 balls, the feet allow for the floor leveling over any kind of ground or flooring even with irregular supporting surfaces thanks to the hinged foot base. The feet can be manufactured with variable height in order to adequate the floor height to existing structures. 2 – Junction and pallet stop elements: they link the feet firmly assembling boltless to the feet; they hold the pallet stop bars where needed. These elements also include the support plates holding brackets. 3 – Support plates: modular and firmly boltless fastened to the Junction elements, these plates support the ball transfer units. The holes below the ball transfer units allow for debris discharge. 4 – Ball transfer units: in AISI 420C stainless steel, Ø30, with carbonitrited cold galvanized steel base suitable for heavy duty. The dirt exit holes in the bottom allow the discharge of debris and keep the ball clean and functional over time, significantly reducing maintenance.
The flexibility of a roller floor: “Sferopratic System®” Type 3 – Rev.5 The new Revision 5 of the “Sferopratic System®” Type 3 has been significantly simplified thus further increasing its modularity in order to allow an easy expansion of the system with few and simple steps, without the use of any tool, even by the end user.
Sequence of the steps required to assemble the modules to easily expand the “Sferopratic System®” Type 3 – Rev.5.
