Utility Trailer Manufacturing Introduces New High Strength Steel Options

September 10 2012

Utility Trailer Manufacturing Company, the industry’s largest manufacturer of refrigerated trailers and a leading manufacturer of dry freight vans, flatbeds, and Tautliner curtainsided trailers apprised that two new high strength steel options are now available for Utility’s 4000D-X Composite dry van.

The high strength steel side panel option is currently only available for the DX-100, which comes as an alternative to the standard .040” aluminum side skin. This option provides a means of countering fluctuations in the price of aluminum.

Using the same durable exterior side skin material found on plate trailers, this new option features .016” high tensile 80,000 psi, pre-painted white galvanized steel panels that cover the full length of the trailer, including the front wall.

Additionally, a new side wall system will be made available for both the optional DX-100 and the standard DX-101. It features 18-gauge, 100,000 psi galvanized steel side wall posts in the bay area, and this offers significant weight savings for increased payload capacity.

In combination with the high strength steel side wall system and the high strength steel side panels, this will provide both cost and weight savings for greater profits. “When combined, this unique pairing reduces weight while adding to the bottom line, making it a winning combination,” said Craig Bennett, Senior Vice President, Sales & Marketing.
