Great Dane reduced weight of its Classic Truckload refrigerated trailer. Its bonded roof construction reduces weight while increasing durability and maintaining optimal thermal efficiency, the company says.
The company’s Composite trailer’s new heavy-duty bottom rail option features a 21-in. high, one-piece aluminum extrusion that replaces the standard 11-in. bottom rail and eliminates the need for a 6-in. integral steel scuffband. This taller bottom rail adds rigidity to the trailer, reducing sidewall bulging and damage to composite walls, the company says.
