This glass carrier truck body is a real Hero announces the release of the new Hero, an enclosed glass carrier truck body available in 12-, 14-, and 16-foot lengths.

Engineered for maximum strength and minimal weight, Hero offers superior fuel economy and more payload capacity than bodies constructed of heavier materials riding on the same chassis. Its efficient design uses strong T6 aluminum glass racks as part of a robust frame that supports the body's .060 aluminum wall panels.

As standard equipment, each side of the Hero body features full glass rack coverage, and floor-to-ceiling racks can be installed into both sides of the interior. Racks are fabricated from 1/8-inch-thick 6061 T6 aluminum posts and slats joined together with aircraft-grade Huck fasteners. Racks provide rubber padding integrated along the full length of all posts and slats.

A translucent roof lets the light in for visibility during loading, and the floor has a non-slip surface for traction. The body uses a full LED lighting system with sealed wire harnesses and reflective tape at strategic locations around the bottom ledge. Easily removable skirts provide access to the rear wheels for simplified tire changes and maintenance.

For securing glass to the racks, Hero comes with T6-Adjust-A-Poles featuring rubber triangle cleats that can be adjusted forward, backward, and to any position along the shaft. Options include the premium T6-Super-Pole with the precision adjustability and tension control of scissor-style cleats, and the E-track cargo control system.
