As the load restraint system is built into the curtains the Freighter Load Hold trailer does away with the need for conventional gates.
Load Hold has been developed through the innovative use of composite technology teamed with traditional buckles and straps. Extra high strength fibreglass pultrusions run from the curtain track down within the curtain and are attached to conventional buckles and extra high strength straps.
The great benefit of this Freighter design is that it meets the Side Load Restraint Guidelines for many types of loads, removing the need for traditional load restraint devices.
It has been tested to meet NTC Load Restraint Guidelines with a unitised load of 1,400kg per pallet space for common loads and up to 2.0 tonne per pallet space with load specific Freighter Engineering approval.
