East Manufacturing has made its smooth bottom Genesis II floor technology available for East frame-type dump trailers.

Genesis II frame dump trailers offer a totally smooth bottom that improves the trailer's aerodynamic performance while simplifying maintenance. The smooth surface underneath the trailer eliminates exposed cross-members where ice, mud and snow can build-up. It also provides for more efficient air flow, promoting less drag and lower fuel consumption.

The Genesis II floor panel extrusions have internal stiffeners specifically designed to efficiently support trailer loads. They are also made of a new aluminum alloy that is stronger and more wear resistant. The "hollow" extruded floor panel design provides improved insulation opportunities to reduce the likelihood of loads freezing in the trailer.
Built into the Genesis II design is additional trailer protection from the adverse weather conditions. Electrical wiring and airlines are almost completely enclosed and virtually unexposed to the elements.

The new floor design allows a unitized wall/floor construction, which improves the torsional stiffness of the trailer. This reduces twisting during dumping, thus increasing dump stability and driver safety.
