Minimises work place injuries, protects your valuable core, works the way you want to work.

What Customers Want

We spoke to our customers, the drillers, the geologists, the field-hands, the core-shed operators, and managers. The common theme was “we want a safer tray. A tray that does not cut me, a tray that does not fail when I lift it, a tray that I can lift without straining my wrists, or elbows.”

It Starts with the Handles

CoreSafe® Ultimate has generous, comfort-grip side and end handles. These enable a natural lift. Gone are the strained wrists associated with old fashioned end handles. Our Slimline tray has large, new-age end handles with smaller side handles. All with comfort grips.

OH&S Friendly CoreSafe® Core Trays

CoreSafe® is designed from the ground up to reduce workplace strains and injuries. A safer work-place equals greater productivity and bottom line profit.

Equipment Friendly CoreSafe® Core Trays & Boxes

Roller conveyors, pallets, work benches - not a problem for CoreSafe®.

Roller conveyors present a unique set of problems for most plastic core trays on the market. We have designed our flat bottomed trays to work exceedingly well with roller conveyors. Lengthwise or sideways these trays have been tested to minimise bounce. Now you can have the best of both worlds - the cost advantages of plastic trays and the work efficency advantages of roller conveyors.

Whether your work bench is made from square profile steel, old drill rod or any other material you'll find CoreSafe®will glide along the benches easily and smoothly.

CoreSafe® is designed to fit three across a pallet. Then we added 4 strapping guides to both the trays and lids. These will take pallet strapping and/or tie down webbing. We've designed CoreSafe® to work well with your equipment.

Safety Designed in

None of our core trays or accessories have any rivets to pop out, sharp edges to cut, or corners to catch. We have designed safety into CoreSafe®. Safety also comes from structural strength and stability. A safe product must perform as well as it looks. A great product must perform at world leading levels. CoreSafe® core trays are such a product. They are designed to resist impact and load stress. They have been tested and tested using the latest technology to help ensure they will not fail when you need them most. CoreSafe® plastic drill core trays & boxes - designed for safety.

Core Friendly CoreSafe® Core Trays & Boxes

One-piece clip on lids that can be pad-locked or cable tied shut. Supporting ribs to cradle your valuable core. Two very important features that help protect your asset from prying eyes and damage.

Cradle your Core

All of our trays also have supporting ribs in the bottom of every channel. These ribs cradle your core, they help protect the core from shock movements and they help keep the core orientated during transport.

Clip-on Lid

Our optional, one piece clip on lids were designed with the trays, they are no mere after thought. From day one they have been a “must have”. We must have a strong and sturdy lid that stays put. To make them even better we have added lock holes to each corner. These marry-up to similar holes in the tray and enable the lids to be locked on. They can be locked on with cable ties, security ties or padlocks.
