Montracon have showcased it’s latest trailer designs, with an emphasis on health & safety, during an exhibition to the members of The Pallet Network (TPN).
The first trailer on show was the wrap around rear curtain trailer, in full TPN livery, designed for safe access to the full load length of the trailer, this allows the driver to remain in their cab during loading, and now becoming the preferred choice of most of the major pallet networks.
The second trailer was fitted with Montracon’s patented Retractostrap System. This system safely stores the load straps away in the roof of the trailer when not in use, and allows easy and safe securing of a load. This system can be easily retro-fitted into a curtainsider, and does away with roof mounted strapping systems.
In 2012, VOSA announced that they would be tightening up on load safety, particularly with curtainsided trailers, these rules are now being rigorously policed by VOSA at roadside checks, for more information see www.vosa.gov.uk
