English to German translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Engineering (general) / material handling
English term or phrase:skip box
Mein Text hat dazu nicht viel Kontext:
- Loose material shall not be lifted other than in approved *skip boxes*.
-If transported by crane, hoist or derrick, compressed gas cylinders shall be handled in a suitable cradle, net or *skip box*, and not lifted by wire or fibre rope, web or dragged.
Ergoogelt habe ich folgende Definition:
Skip box - A rectangular receptacle designed for loading and unloading cargo on and off ships. The sides and/or ends may be hinged or removable to facilitate loading and unloading. It is usually mounted on stringers to permit handling by forklift trucks. Slings or bridles may be provided for hoisting.
