The steel extrusions are shotblasted and primed prior to fabrication to remove mill scale and ensure a good surface for paint adhesion. The side rave is an 8mm steel angle (not pressed steel plate) for strength. A 4mm steel floor is standard. The standard trailer width is 2500mm (approximately 8’2”).
Axles are used well within their design capacity, not on the limit. All flat trailers are fitted with four spring suspension.
The trailers are fitted with a commercial road lighting system and the wiring is connected at waterproof junction boxes. The lights are all LED including an LED flashing warning light. There is a stalk fitted at the front of the trailer to keep electric and braking cables tidy and away from the drawbar and dirt. The electric connection to the tractor is a removable electric coil.
Trailers are finished with 120 microns of paint, applied with an electrostatic system to ensure complete coverage. The top coat is a hard wearing two pack acrylic high gloss paint.
Standard features include: 600mm headboard, ratchet style park brake, rope hooks on every floor bearer, LED commercial road lighting system with front and side marker lights, stop/tail lights and flashing warning light, rear light guards, hydraulic braking system and spray suppression flaps
