There is a great deal of trailer technology to be seen at the 2014 CV Show, with the likes of Dekker, Laurence David and SOMI Trailers revealing the latest products that aim to improve carrying capacities and overall efficiency – through technology innovations and advanced aerodynamics – for transport fleets.
Transdek launched an innovative urban double deck trailer, while Cartwright is displayed a new design of trailer, that aims to take its products to the next level. This advanced trailer boasts a fully galvanised chassis – an option demanded by a growing number of customers – which provides, according to Cartwright, “a very high quality finish” and aims to be “more cost-effective than a painted chassis”.
The addition of Magnelis bearings and side raves help to achieve a longer life for the trailer as they promise to be up to 10 times more resistant to corrosion than a traditional galvanised bearer. The side raves include the pull-up lashing ring option for deck to deck load securing.
Visitors to the Show have also witnessed a new floor design on the trailer, with the use of 30mm phenolic non-slip ply hardwood floor sections. These sections are laid on top of the trailer I beams, creating a flush surface and a stronger and more robust chassis and floor, which is rated to ISO1496 standard. A new restraint system was also included.
The trailer has attracted plenty of attention to the Cartwright stand, with a company spokesperson saying there were a lot of enquires from interested transport operators.
