As part of our ongoing partnership with DS Smith Logistics to promote safer trailers for the public and operators, earlier this year we retrofitted one of their Pillarless Curtainsider’s with a whole suite of Health & Safety conscious devices, listed below.
- ArmourSheet – XL curtains (Fully EN12642XL rated).
- Automatic rear step illumination lamp.
- Fully integrated Soft Dock system with audible warning.
- Lawrence David patented Curved Ground Coupling.
- Our latest Strap Safe load securing system.
- Portholes in roof to act as skylights.
- Side marker lamps incorporated in to the indicator / repeater system.
- Two high level rear indicator lamps.
- Two high level rear stop lamps.
The attached picture shows our patented Curved Ground Coupling which is being trialled by a select few of our most long standing customers. This is now the industry leading coupling in terms of driver safety, providing comfortable, ground level suzie coupling & decoupling of the trailer connections, NO working at height & NO getting behind the cab.
DS Smith were so thrilled to have these additions on their trailer they included an article in the winter edition of their internal magazine, and it’s a recommended read from us, link here.
