Urban Double Deck

Our urban double deck trailer, the DUET, offers savings of up to 52% on town and city centre deliveries. The DUET carries up to 107% extra load compared to a conventional rigid, within the same overall height profile as the single deck vehicle.  And with a tighter turning circle and better manoeuvrability, the DUET offers unrivalled benefits for urban road freight.

Our DUET incorporates an ultra low chassis with tandem Tridec stub axles, giving a 36 tonne maximum combination weight. Our innovative V-Glide rear doors and specialist double deck taillift are fitted as standard on the DUET trailers to provide extra safety for drivers, loaders and passing traffic during un/loading at the kerbside and the loading bay.

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
