Original equipment manufacturer, SDC Trailers, is marking its 40th anniversary celebrations this year, exhibiting six semi-trailers at the Commercial Vehicle exhibition in the UK.
On SDC’s stand, 5F101, there will be three trailers on display, according to the OEM. “The first trailer on display is an exciting, innovative, industry changing trailer. A research and design process that has spanned several years has ensured that every practical requirement of the operator(s) has been accounted for in our revolutionary design, which is first to Market. The trailer will be unveiled at The CV Show and it is undoubtedly one trailer that is not to be missed at The NEC.”
Next up is the Brick Platform, which SDC has said is one of the most popular options in its portfolio, and is leading the market for the construction industry.
“The design of the first brick trailer was an integrated effort between customers, sales managers and engineers to design and manufacture a trailer that would meet the needs of everyone in the industry,” said SDC.
“The trailer is designed to be fitted with a roll along crane and has a forced steer Tridec system installed for maximum manoeuvrability.
“The brick platform has evolved over the years and the most recent version is arguably the best with advanced health and safety features, including curtain sides fitted on the trailer and multi position load restraint hooks. It is also fitted with an ENXL-approved headboard which will provide greater economic benefits for the customer.”
The third trailer at Stand 5F101 will be the introduction of the new SDC Concept Boxvan Trailer. SDC’s boxvan was re-designed after lengthy discussions with different stakeholders in the industry, according to the OEM. The boxvan was re-designed using the latest bonding technology in construction to improve the aesthetics, durability and volume of the current boxvan. “The longevity of this trailer has been extended with the galvanised rear frame and rear floor crossmember preventing corrosion, which will also help maintain higher residual value. It is now suitable for 34 Euro Pallet Operations and is currently undergoing the ENXL approval process. The new boxvan is designed to allow the fitment of an optional full width compression buffer. This design integration provides flexibility should your operational needs change after purchase.”
SDC has said the The boxvan on display at SDC’s stand will have the compression buffer fitted.
In the NEC outside exhibition area, SDC will have three curtain-siders on display.
“We are delighted to be back at the CV Show in 2018, showcasing the latest trailer innovations from SDC,” said SDC CEO, Enda Cushnahan. “Our engineering and sales teams have been collectively working together to design smart trailers for the industry that will provide many economic benefits for the operator. The CV show is an excellent networking event as it gives us the opportunity to engage with customers and suppliers.”
The Commercial Vehicle show is the largest road freight transport event staged in the UK, attracting over 21,000 visitors. Visitors can gain access to the three day show free of charge by registering on the CV show website. The event runs from Tuesday 24th April to Thursday 26th April.
