12100013 (now model 18300033CTR) STURGO® Spring-Base Laundry Trolley
Backsafe Australia was provided with the opportunity to tender on the supply of laundry trolleys for the Oyu Tolgoi Underground Project facilities. Specifications were provided that needed to be met, to fit in with the facility layout. The large quantity required and remote delivery location posed a challenge that we couldn't wait to tackle and resolve!

Necessary features of the trolleys included dimensions of 1250mmL x 700mmW x 850mmH; and all wheels to have swivelling ability, fitted in jockey configuration, with brakes on front and back.

We met some challengess along the way with production delays due to new year holidays and quality testing. However, this didn't stop us from delivering the best quality product and solution possible. Constant communication and reporting with our manufacturing team and client ensured the final product was of the best quality and delivered in the fastest possible time frame.

The STURGO® Spring-loaded Laundry Trolleys have been proven on numerous mine sites throughout Australia as reliable and robust, and now making waves in Mongolia. With a very satisfied client and more trolleys scheduled for delivery, we look forward to continuing to support this project.

Facilities management on mine sites needs to run at maximum efficiency, safely! STURGO® can deliver on that...contact us to find out how!
