Utility Trailer Manufacturing Company announced that two new high-strength steel options are now available for Utility’s 4000D-X Composite dry van.
The high-strength steel side panel option is currently only available for the DX-100, which comes as an alternative to the standard .040” aluminum side skin. This option provides a means of countering fluctuations in the price of aluminum.
Using the same durable exterior side skin material found on plate trailers, this new option features .016” high-tensile 80,000 psi, pre-painted white galvanized steel panels that cover the full length of the trailer, including the front wall.
Additionally, a new side-wall system will be made available for both the optional DX-100 and the standard DX-101. It features 18-gauge, 100,000 psi galvanized steel side wall posts in the bay area, and this offers significant weight savings for increased payload capacity.
In combination with the high-strength steel side-wall system and the high-strength steel side panels, this will provide both cost and weight savings for greater profits.
“When combined, this unique pairing reduces weight while adding to the bottom line, making it a winning combination,” said Craig Bennett, Senior Vice President, Sales & Marketing.
