Have You Experienced
This In Your Elevator?
For over 35 years, and in more than
50 countries, Tapco has been solving the
problem of bent & torn steel buckets.
STYLE CC-HD (HEAVY DUTY)
Polyethylene Elevator Bucket
Urethane • Nylon
T apco nonmetallic buckets have the ability to absorb impact
in the elevator leg and “give” or “yield” to bypass an
obstruction. They then return to their original shape and keep
on working for you.
Tapco buckets weigh less than their pressed steel counterparts,
lack sharp edges and therefore are far safer and easier to handle
when fitting an elevator.
With 900,000 buckets in 93 sizes stocked throughout
the world, Tapco has what you want, when you need it!
Tapco also maintains over 15 million elevator bolts
in imperial and metric threads in six styles. Tapco
fanged elevator bolts have been specifically
Elevator Bolt designed to work with nonmetallic buckets.
