Ancra adds Retract-A-Roll 4 track system to lineup

April 27, 2018
Ancra International, a global manufacturer of cargo handling systems, recently introduced a new addition to its lineup of Retract-A-Roll systems.

Ancra International, a global designer and manufacturer of cargo handling and restraint systems for a variety of industries, recently introduced a new addition to its lineup of Retract-A-Roll systems.

The Retract-A-Roll 4 is the latest pneumatic roller track system bringing aircraft technology to trailers.  The Retract-A-Roll 4 is easy to operate and easier to maintain, the company said. With an improved design, loading and unloading is quicker, reducing material handling time – which falls to the bottom line.

Ancra’s pneumatic roller track systems are powered by the pneumatics off a truck’s existing air supply, built to take abuse of forklifts and instantly convert back to a smooth-floored trailer for general freight operations.

In addition, Ancra’s Retract-A-Roll systems are manufactured with safety interlock.  Should the operator fail to lower the roller system, a backup safety control valve automatically lowers rollers when the vehicle’s brakes are released, assuring the load remains secure while in transit, employees stay safe and there is no damage to surrounding structures caused by any shift in cargo.

The controls for Retract-A-Roll are centrally located in a weatherproof container, making operation easy, safe and reliable, the company said.

The biggest advantage of Retract-A-Roll 4 is the heavy-duty top plate featuring a dual-skate wheel design.  Hi-strength, 11-gauge stamped interlocking steel top plates have a galvanized finish to fight corrosion and are easy to remove for maintenance, only being held in place with two screws.

Only 40 total screws are needed in a standard 5-lane system compared to 220 screws required in other systems. The dual skate wheel design results in a smaller opening in the top plate to help prevent any debris from entering and puncturing the air bag, lowering maintenance cost and downtime.

Ancra’s Retract-A-Roll systems are designed with flexibility in mind and can be retrofitted in virtually any trailer, even used ones.
