My original product was designed to help my Mother, who suffers from arthritis, to fill a coal bucket from her coal storage bunker. When the bunker was full, it was difficult to shovel coal out due to the weight from above. When it was empty it was difficult to gather coals which were scattered or had accumulated at the back of the bunker.
I designed the very first SmartBunker and the benefits soon became obvious as the coal was easy to store, stayed dry and was straightforward to dispense.
The company’s first product was The SmartBunkerTM, an innovative storage bunker with a spring-loaded side lever which releases stacked product at the bottom of the container, where, for example, a bucket can be placed instead of having to use a shovel or scoop.
The Smart Bunker is a simple solution to an age-old problem. Until now, there has been no product that robustly addresses user ability and Health and Safety issues as well as the Smart Bunker.
Upon speaking to close family members about my product, additional uses for the storage bunker became apparent including storage and dispensing of produce such as Animal Feed, Salt & Grit, Compost, Wood Pellets, Coal, Slack, or any dry product.
