Lawrence David Complete Another Batch of Lightweight Bodies for Grafton Merchanting

23 Feb Rigids Tail Lifts

Lawrence David have the pleasure of completing another batch of lightweight Bonded Bodies for Grafton Merchanting GB Ltd. The 3.5 tonne Luton Body will be used by their Plumbase sector, who specialise in; plumbing, heating and bathrooms. Built onto Vauxhall’s Movano range, flexibility and comfort is at the forefront of the design. Lawrence David Bonded Box Bodies are known for their superior quality and smarter aesthetic appearance.

The unique design and innovative use of state of the art materials coupled to the lightweight Vauxhall chassis offer the operator a payload in excess of 1100kg even to the point of being fitted with the new D’hollandia rear closure tailift. This design is a testament to the partnership between Lawrence David and Vauxhall, highlighting both companies’ advancements through dedicated engineering.

In addition to the above Lawrence David commissioned Aerodyne to design the front of the vehicle with an ‘Aero Luton’ air deflector which doubles as a stowage compartment, showcasing Lawrence David’s desire to utilise all available space within the vehicle. We can also offer a ‘VUE’ camera system to improve safety around the vehicle by reducing the driver’s blind spots.

Operators can be offered an easily operated side door, either to the left or right hand side depending on their application. The side door is fitted with a recessed lock and hinges, allowing for easy access to the load without opening the rear and using the tailift.

Inside the van Lawrence David optional extras include, three rows of load retention tracks which are positioned all the way up the sides and front. 8 flush fitting floor lashing rings diversify the load securing options available inside this Bonded Van. LED interior lighting is triggered by a ‘Passive Infrared Sensor’ which automatically activates when motion is detected, ensuring the battery is not unnecessarily drained.

With over 45 years of engineering experience, Lawrence David are known for producing premium commercial truck and rigid bodywork. The customisability of these bonded vans showcase Lawrence David’s ability to cater for customer’s needs.
