Utility Trailer Manufacturing, the industry’s largest manufacturer of refrigerated trailers and a leading manufacturer of dry freight vans, flatbeds and Tautliner curtainsided trailers, has announced a new optional double deck loading system for Utility dry van trailers.
The new double deck loading system is designed for maximizing trailer cube space and increase overall freight capacity.
The system can support up to 500 lbs per square foot with a 26,000 lb load rating.
By using a strategic system of tracks and beams, a second deck is created for increasing freight capacity without reaching past the allowable weight limit.
The system is also highly versatile in providing several different configurations for uniquely packaged freight.
The second deck allows freight to be stacked on top of each other without causing damage to fragile items transported in the same load.
Utility utilizes the K2 Kaptive Beam System manufactured by Kinedyne Corporation.
The K2 Kaptive beams and tracks are manufactured with an aluminum material engineered to add a minimal amount of weight to the trailer without compromising durability and strength of the deck. A spring-loaded mechanism automatically locks to the beam securing to the track slots.
