            Operator Cabins

            Operator Cabins

            A pleasant temperature, clean air and especially a good sitting posture during work. Unfortunately these principles are not always a matter of course for cabin operators, even though a healthy work environment is of the utmost importance. Too often, crane operators contend with extreme fatigue, concentration problems and chronic neck and back problems. At Merford we believe that everyone, anywhere in the world, is entitled to a safe and comfortable workplace.

            Our extensive production facility makes it possible to deliver a product that fits your wishes completely
            Our applications for operators improve the effectivity and safety of the employee
            With Merford's solutions, a safe and efficient operator cabin is within reach

            A special work environment
            A cabin is a special workplace. For years we have delved into the work conditions of crane operators. We frequently observe their work, conduct surveys among them and especially listen well to their wishes, complaints and suggestions for improvement. Every detail in our cabins counts: ranging from the synchronised movement of arm rests to provide improved ergonomics, to optimal visibility, clean air and responsible sound and vibration levels. By paying attention to every detail and every specific wish, we enable operators to work with greater enjoyment and efficiency. In many instances the use of our cabins translates into a demonstrable decrease in absence due to illness and into higher operator productivity.

            Reliable partner
            Each cabin can be fully designed to meet your wishes, and of course, our cabins meet all legal requirements. In addition, we often closely work with the end-user, the crane manufacturer and the supplier of control systems, in a team setting. In this triangle, we are a valued and reliable partner who provides advice where necessary, guarantees high quality and delivers on time. If you are curious about our cabins and their ergonomic layout, we would be pleased to tell you more!

              Peinemann Equipment supplies machines which clean tube bundles for petrochemical companies. Some types of machine are assembled by the company Burg Equipment. In order to clean the bundles properly, water at a pressure of maximum 1500 bar is sprayed into the pipes. The hard jet of water and the chemical substances released can be dangerous for the operator of the machine. The cabin manufactured by Merford protects the operator from these.

              OBA is a transhipment port for bulk goods in Amsterdam. The company has a terminal in the Netherlands’ capital city’s western docks (Westelijk Havengebied). One of the 60-ton quay cranes was manufactured by Chinese crane construction company ZPMC. OBA decided to improve several features on the crane, such as the layout of the front of the cabin to improve all-round vision, and the operator’s chair in the middle of the cabin. Merford Cabins manufactured a bay window with an ergonomic operator’s chair that has now replaced the front of the cabin.
