What Is A Drop Bottom Skip?

A drop bottom skip is a specialized industrial container designed to facilitate the efficient handling and disposal of waste and materials. One of its defining features is the drop bottom mechanism, where the base of the skip opens downward to allow the contents to be quickly and easily emptied. This mechanism is typically operated by a lever or a similar control, which can be manual or mechanical.

Constructed from heavy-duty materials such as steel, these skips are built to withstand rough use and handle heavy loads. They are commonly used in construction, manufacturing, and warehousing environments to collect and dispose of bulk materials like debris, scrap metal, and other waste. For ease of transportation and emptying, drop bottom skips often come equipped with forklift pockets or lifting lugs. The design of these skips enhances efficiency by enabling quick unloading without the need for tipping, thus reducing handling time and boosting productivity.

What Is A Stillage?

On the other hand, a stillage is a type of container or frame used primarily for the storage and transport of goods in industrial and commercial settings. Typically made from metal, stillages often feature a sturdy frame that can sometimes include mesh sides to hold and support items securely. They are commonly employed for storing, handling, and transporting items such as parts, raw materials, and finished products.

One of the advantages of stillages is their mobility; many are designed to be stackable and may include additional features like wheels or forklift pockets for easy movement. Built to withstand heavy loads and rough handling, stillages are suitable for repeated use. Additionally, they can be customized to meet specific requirements, including adjustments to size, shape, and features such as removable sides or partitions.
