As part of an ongoing partnership, Lawrence David have recently put the finishing touches on a very unique curtainsider for SIG Insulation.

From their headquarters in Sheffield, SIG Group are a leading distributor of specialist building and insulation products throughout Europe and the UK. Especially prevalent in the UK, France and Germany, which together account for 87% of its continuing revenues, SIG are a global organisation that needs to meet global standards.

And so when tasked with building a 26t rigid curtainsider that offers unbeatable haulage and safety standards, Lawrence David were ready to lend their expert hand.

Eye-catching on UK roads but more widely seen in Europe, the Mercedes Econic is in a class of its own and provides a great base with which to start trailer building.

The Econic’s unique low-entry concept, coupled with the top quality you’d expect from Mercedes-Benz, means this is a vehicle that provides comfort, efficiency, environmental compatibility and uncompromising commitment. Day in, day out.

Whether used as a refuse collection or recycling vehicle, for road maintenance or as a fire appliance, for inner city distribution or airside duties, the Econic proves to be a versatile ally.

The Lawrence David curtainsider body measures 6.7m-long and 2.5m-high and features the best Armoursheet’plus’ curtains for added safety, Lawrence David’s unbeatable StrapSafe system for securing loads of all shapes and sizes and a one-piece fibreglass roof with exclusive Lawrence David track and valance. All finished in a brilliant Turbo Red paint job, this is one of their greatest builds for a great project.

The cabs feature an electrically-operated sunblind, preventing glare and excessive heating, and large panoramic windows which provide excellent visibility for road safety. Whilst inside the body, SIG can be assured to find a 21mm WisaTrans slip-resistant flooring and internal lights.

Combining Lawrence David’s quality craftsmanship and the outstanding safety features of Mercedes Econic, this new rigid curtainsider is certain to make a lasting impact for SIG Group.
