Drop & Roll Features
The freedom of movement
Our Drop & Roll returns allow you to place your interior collection points whenever you need them and then roll them away to circulation when you’re done. Convenience for both you, and your patrons.
All Drop & Roll returns come with a keyed locking lid that helps provide a minimum level of security to serve as a deterrent and keep books inside of the unit until ready to be checked in or reshelved.
Standard Wording for Easy Identification
Easy to read decals with the word “RETURN” in big white letters are placed on two sides of the cart. Decals for both “BOOKS” and “MEDIA” with installation instructions are included so you can choose what wording you want on the lid depending on the intended use.
Light-weight, rust-free Aluminum
All of our carts are made of aluminum alloy that will never rust and is over 60% lighter than comparable steel or wood carts. We believe you should only have to worry about the weight of the contents not the cart itself. Aluminum is also more resistant to dents and dings so your carts won’t look beat up when you bump into something on accident.
Textured for a clean appearance
Our carts are covered in a glossy, textured, black powder coat finish that is over 2 mils thick. This coating resists scratches and hides fingerprints to keep your cart looking shiny and new.
Ergonomic loading and cushioning
Every cart includes a self-leveling float tray that lowers as materials are added and raises as they are removed. This keeps the tray at the optimal height for collecting returns to reduce the damage done to your collections. Each float tray also has a thick felt pad at the bottom to cushion the fall of the first materials that are deposited. This felt pad is also water resistant so you don’t need to worry about it retaining water and molding if you do ever happen to get liquids in your cart.
Stays in place with no extra noise
We’ve added thick PVC pipe guide rods to keep your float tray from bending and warping from uneven distribution of materials. The tray stays perfectly in position from the time the first deposit is made to the time the last one is removed. You never have to worry about the tray bending enough to let materials slip through the sides. The guide rods have dampeners at either end to ensure a tight fit and eliminate rattling from so the overall noise of the cart is reduced.
Push like a shopping cart
Our handles are wide, straight, and fixed at a comfortable height to make it easy to push and steer your cart back to check-in. Another advantage of having a fixed handle? It doesn’t bang against the side of the cart whenever something is deposited like a long u-shaped handle does.
Quality, easy to push casters
All four casters are plate mounted, non-marring, and are made of materials that resist abrasive surfaces such as asphalt and concrete. The two casters on the side with the handle are ball bearing swivel casters which make it easy to maneuver. These casters can also be locked into place to keep the cart firmly in place. The other two casters are fixed in place. Our EasyRoller casters aren’t 3", they are double the size at 6" because we know that the larger the caster, the easier it is to push when there’s a full load.
