Double decking system for trucks
When a van is loaded there is often a large gap above the load that cannot be filled due to the risk of damaging the goods underneath. One way to overcome this would be to use a double decking solution. This is suitable for many types of goods, such as packaged goods and other light goods transported in roll cages.
Double decking often leads to more efficient volume utilization and improved transport economy. Moreover, it is usually beneficial for the environment as the same quantity of goods can be distributed with fewer vehicles.
PIEK-approved cargo bar
PIEK is a technical solution which reduces noise. Noise from distribution vehicles in urban areas can be perceived as very disturbing and some cities have already introduced a legal requirement on using PIEK-approved vehicles. With Forankra’s PIEK system, "XtraDeck" the sound is brought down to <60dB, which is in line with the "Piek certification and the European Directive 2003/10 EC of 6 February of 2003.
In addition to the PIEK-approval the XtraDeck system has also developed a new height control rod, which is safer and more ergonomical than previous models.
XtraDeck system has received several awards such as “Best New Vehicle Equipment” at Solutrans in Lyon November 2015 and "Logistics Efficiency and Sustainability Awards" in Madrid April 2016.
The Armaton dropside locking pillar system is respected for its high quality, flexibility and attractive design. The structure is strong but light, which allows more of the gross vehicle weight to be used for cargo. As a result Armaton has been chosen by many leading LVC body builders around Europe.
Forankra has a wide range of thermo products – from highly insulating material in thermo walls and pallet covers to corridor systems. Choosing the right thermo product enables safe transportation of frozen and refrigerated goods as well as frost sensitive products.
