Whiting 1184HD Hold Open Device

Strick makes Whiting 1184HD trailer door hold standard

Strick Trailers, a manufacturer of aluminum sheet and post trailers, says it is adding the Whiting 1184HD Hold Open Device as standard on all Strick trailers with overhead doors.

“Everyone’s best is our standard,” said Justin Bell, vice president of Strick engineering. “It is important that we spec smart, forward-thinking components that will exceed our customers’ expectations, (and) the 1184HD certainly adheres to that criteria.”

The Whiting 1184HD Hold Open Device ensures the truck roll-up door is kept up and out of the way when loading and unloading freight. The device locks the door in place, minimizing damage to the bottom panel while increasing usable opening height.

The locked position also eliminates the door from “sagging” or “hanging down,” a challenge many delivery personnel encounter every day, Strick said.

The 1184HD is offered in conjunction with Whiting’s PremiumPlate door, a longtime Strick standard.

The PremiumPlate door is constructed with polyethylene (PE) composite panels that are surrounded with pre-painted, high-tensile-strength steel faces for a durable, high-impact surface that’s an “excellent” alternative to plywood.

“It’s durable construction is another value-added benefit we are happy to pass on to the customer,” Bell said.

1184HD product features:

  • Locking door into place reduces bottom panel door damage
  • Increases useable opening height
  • Improves operational safety
  • E-coated to prevent rust and corrosion
