Our Tall Boy Trailers

As its name suggests, the Tall Boy is a double deck trailer designed specifically to optimise carrying capacity for tall loads. It allows you to double deck pallets or cages up to 2.2 metres in height, gaining up to 60% more load fill compared to single deck trailers which translates to as much as 37.5% less road deliveries, miles and costs.

Built on an ultra low, Continental style chassis with Tridec stub axles, the Tall Boy also incorporates a slimline second deck and roof to generate the ultimate internal clearances. With an overall running height of 4950mm, the Tall Boy double decker is aimed at UK trunking operations and importing from Continental ports (to cut ferry costs).

v-glide sash doors

Our V-Glide sash type rear doors* offer a totally fresh approach to double deck rear doors. Each deck has its own counterweighted composite panel door that slides independently in slimline vertical columns set in to the rearframe, meaning that only one deck is open at a time. With a smooth, quick and easy open-close mechanism, and robust automatic locking mechanisms, our V-Glide doors generate the following operating benefits, compared to conventional barn and/or shutter door types:

Faster, Safer Docking

Faster, Safer Docking

Doors are opened after docking. Drivers don’t have to stop to open doors in busy yards pre-docking

Streamline Vehicle Height

Streamline Vehicle Height

Up to 300mm extra roof space compared to shutter doors, enabling maximum load volume and low-height vehicle design

ANTI THEFT SECURITY

ANTI THEFT SECURITY

Only one door open at a time during kerbside loading; doors sealed until after docking at loading bays.
