Greenhouses are getting bigger and bigger and that is why growers are increasingly aware that their employees are spending a lot of time walking through the greenhouse. It just can happen that one or more employees have to walk for minutes from the canteen or from the entrance to the path where they have to work. Just think how much time that takes on one day and how much on an annual basis.
The disadvantage of cycling in the greenhouse
Many growers therefore have bicycles available for their employees so that they can 'easily' move around the greenhouse. However, there are a number of important drawbacks here. For example, the bikes take up a lot of space and are also fairly maintenance-sensitive. For example, the chain sometimes runs off, the brakes no longer work optimally after a while and tires also need to be inflated regularly or even repaired. In short, also the bicycle is not the ideal means of transport for moving employees through your greenhouse.
Steenks kick scooters for growers
Steenks Service has therefore developed the special Steenks scooter for use in greenhouses. This allows the grower to shorten the time to move from one place to another in the greenhouse, without having to worry about the disadvantages of the bicycle. The kick scooter is compact and low maintenance. Steenks: "Because our scooter is fully electrolytically galvanized and has three solid wheels, you can be five times faster with the scooter than walking the same distance. Thanks to the two rear wheels, the kick scooter always stays upright and can easily be stored. You can already buy one for 162 euro excluding VAT, an amount that is earned back in no time at all."
