High-quality forklift forks: for convenient and fast goods transport

Forklift forks are the most important component of a forklift truck or pallet truck. You will therefore find fork designs for special purposes in our range in addition to classic forks. The right forklift truck fork must fulfil numerous requirements in order to optimally fulfil the tasks involved:

  • It must be able to withstand heavy weight.
  • It must have a high-quality finish to ensure durability.
  • It should be made of material that prevents premature wear. We therefore recommend that you always look for the TÜV seal when buying forklift forks and fork extensions. Although it is not required by law, it is nevertheless an outstanding quality feature.

Practical: Special coatings on Linde Material Handling forklift forks, such as the use of magnetic or non-slip materials, improve their practicality. They also offer greater safety and are even required by law when using work baskets.

Stacker fork extensions: Advantages and benefits at a glance

In certain situations it may be necessary to extend the forks of the forklift truck. This is necessary, for example, when particularly long goods, pallets or wire mesh boxes are to be transported. Here, the fork extensions from Linde Material Handling ensure maximum stability and safety. They are compatible with most forklift trucks and are available in several cross-sections and sizes.

A distinction is made between different types of fork or forklift tines:

  • Open forks: These are simply placed on the existing forklift forks and are usually cheaper than closed forks. With open forks, the centre of gravity of the load must be on the fixed forks, otherwise there is a risk of the attached fork extension tipping over.
  • Closed forks: They completely enclose the original forklift fork and are therefore also called "fork shoe". Lateral pins ensure additional hold. Due to the firm hold of these fork extensions for forklifts, you can transport loads on the extension without hesitation, even if the centre of gravity is not on the original fork.

When deciding on the right forklift tines, budget plays a particularly important role. Open fork tines are cheaper than fork shoes and offer hardly any disadvantages in comparison.

However, a decision in favour of closed forklift fork extensions is always recommended if heavy and oversized objects have to be transported on a daily basis. Since you do not have to pay attention to the even distribution of the load here, closed forks speed up the work significantly.

Buy a fork extension: What to look out for?

When buying a forklift fork extension, you should pay attention to a few things:

  • The exact dimensions of the forklift forks must be known. The cross-section is particularly important.
  • The necessary load capacity is of great importance. If in doubt, choose a somewhat higher load capacity.
  • As far as the length is concerned, you should make sure that the fork extension is a maximum of 40 percent longer than the original forks.

You can select these and other criteria in our professional online shop. This way, you will find the ideal forklift fork extensions for your company in no time!
