The RapidWire system of welded wire partitions features a modular design that allows users to combine standard parts to meet their specific requirements. The three basic components of the system — panels, posts and a range of door styles — provide the flexibility to design and install any type of security enclosure. For added security, a RapidWire ceiling may be added to the enclosure. For the panels, 8- and 10-gauge wires are welded at each intersection to provide mesh patterns of 1¼ by 3 inches, ⅝ by 3 inches or 2 by 2 inches; each panel is finished with 1¼- by 1¼-inch 13-gauge steel angles welded along its length. Posts are available in standard heights of 8, 10 and 12 feet; other heights are available.

The C/I Taskmaster Series of lifters is compatible with standard two-bar carts and tilt trucks equipped with lifting bars. To use, wheel the container to the lifter and press the “up” button. The lifter secures the cart to the lift plate, picks it up and dumps it. Pressing the “down” button returns the cart to the ground. The lifters can be equipped with casters, mounted to loading docks or mounted directly onto trash balers or compactors. Lifting capacities of 550, 750 and 1,000 pounds are offered, with cycle times of eight to 10 seconds. Self-lubricating composite bearings at all pivot points eliminate the need for greasing. Each lifter is powder-coated and backed by a one-year warranty.
