Transdek launches new DUET double deck trailers at CV Show

17 April 2015 #CV Show #Top Stories #Trailer

Double deck solutions specialist Transdek UK has expanded its innovative DUET trailer range with the launch of two new models at the Commercial Vehicle Show.

Transdek says the new DUET Wedge double deck box van has the capacity to transport up to 52 pallets – more than double the load volume of a standard 13.6-metre single deck trailer – allowing vehicle operators to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by as much as 50%.

The chassis and body design feature an ultra slimline fixed second deck construction and chassis neck depth to maximise internal load height on both decks. This enables a full deck runthrough of pallets or roll-cages up to 1,790mm in height.

The DUET Wedge features Transdek’s unique twin slide door arrangement, specifically designed to support optimal double deck operations.

Tony Sturgess, Head of Trailer Design at Transdek UK, said, “Our innovative adaptation of the sloping chassis, or wedge, trailer has enabled us to manufacture a rear-loading double deck design that offers the potential to cut single deck delivery frequencies and operating costs by up to 50%. Built to the highest engineering standards, the DUET provides exceptional reliability and cost effective freight delivery operations.”

Transdek also displayed the Mark II DUET Urban double deck trailer, designed to enable high volume deliveries to city centres and developed to meet growing retailer demand for greater transport efficiencies on last-mile deliveries to urban centres.

The DUET Urban Mark II features a specially adapted tail lift for unloading on the high street. As well as multi-temperature option, additional safety features such as reversing cameras, and cycle-safety ultrasonic side and rear detection systems are available on the trailer.

In addition, Transdek exhibited a working model of its surface mounted 6.5-tonne double deck lift, which can be installed directly onto existing floor areas in as little as a day.
