Weha to other Transport Cart Companies Blow
Premium European Grade Steel
1.Weha Transport Carts are manufactured by Weha Germany using premium grade
European grade A steel. This means stronger, straighter, and more durable
Granite Transport Carts
Weha Competitors are manufactured using Recycled Asian Steel that
has been processed. This creates weaker transport carts that greatly sacrifice
Fully Hot Dipped Galvanized
Weha Transport Racks are completely Hot Dipped Galvanized. Not coated. But fully
submersed. This process allows both the outside and even the inside of the
steel to be zinc galvanized coated. This means zero rusting, no paint
flaking, no salt concerns, no worries with leaving them outside and in the back
of trucks. For years! Actually, on average galvanized steel is expected to last
30 years +, although some sources say up to 70 years before the zinc is worn
Weha Competitors A Frames are simply painted or powder coated. How
long does it take for their A frame Carts to form rust once the paint has been
scratched? As little as 2 weeks! Remember the 1970's and 80's Fords? Shhhh. You
can actually hear them rusting.ife
Life Expectancy: 17 Years
As stated from point 2, the Life expectancy of Weha A Frames are
approximately 17 years. Weha Transport Carts have been sold in the USA since
1997. Based upon Fabricators who have purchased these in the mid 1990s and
early 2000s, those A frames are still going strong. Many have simply replaced
their rubber and straps and the A Frames are back to perfect working order! The life of
the granite A frames are a little shorter because fabricators have dropped them
out of the backs of trucks, slab delivery trucks hit them and run them over, or
they are severely crushed by crazy forklift drivers.
Weha Competitors A Frames have a life expectancy of 8 years. With
lack of bracing, inferior steel used, and the painted surface severely reduces
the life of these Granite A frames.
T Slot Rubber for easy Replacement
Weha A frames are made with specially designed T Slot premium grade T Slot
Rubber. This rubber does not bleed onto the stone and lasts for years. Once
worn out, simply slide or pop the rubber out and install new rubber. A Weha A
Frame can be completely stripped of old rubber and new rubber installed in less
than 10 minutes!
Weha Competitors Transport Carts install dense rubber by gluing them
onto the A frames. Experiences from fabricators say they are constantly regluing
the bottom pieces back on. And once worn out, it takes hours or days to install
new rubber and wait for the glue to dry.
Interior Structural Support Beams built inside the A Frame
Weha A frames are built with hot dipped galvanized steel structural support
beams inside the A Frame. These cross beams run from the middle bottom to the
top end of the A Frame. These beams provide tremendous strength and support to
the A frame. This keeps the A Frame perfectly straight and structurally strong,
adding years to its life.
Weha Competitors offer NO interior support beams. This allows excess
A frame movement, warping, weld fatique, and drastically reduces the life of
the A frame by at least half.
Galvanized Locking Upright Poles with Brass Buckles & Straps
Every Weha Stone A Frame Transport Cart comes complete with a set of fully
hot dipped galvanized locking upright poles lined with T Slot Rubber and Brass
Buckle and Strap. This is not an optional add on or additional cost to you.
This is included with each A frame.
Weha Competitors do offer painted or powder coated upright poles.
They are made out of the same Asian steel and painted the same way. And the
rubber is glued onto the upright pole the same way. BUT many of the carts
offered do not come with these uprights. They are optional Add ons with
additional costs involved. This can add hundreds of dollars to the cart cost.
Weha Granite Transport A Frame Racks are very closely priced with its
competitors. Is Weha cheaper? Not on the initial purchase. But when you compare
the above 6 points and see that Weha A Frames will literally last twice as long
as its competitors A Frame Transport Cart. When you factor in the superior raw
materials, fully hot dipped galvanization of all parts, complete set of
galvanized upright poles included, and structurally built better, the small
difference in price could save thousands over the next 20 years.
