Utility Offers Optional Adjustable Load Securement System
August 2011, TruckingInfo.com - Feature
Utility Trailer Manufacturing introduced the Utility Adjustable Load Securement System, a new option for Utility flatbed trailers.
This new tie-down system is another load securement option for Utility's 4000A, Tautliner curtainsided trailers and Conestoga 2.
ALSS allows for on-the-deck load securement, as opposed to side kits. This will eliminate the need to go over and through the side kit when securing the load.
ALSS features mechanically fastened side rails, which include integral tie-down and winch tracks. The J-Hook tie-downs allow for maximum load securement versatility when used with traditional tie-downs. The system is currently available in the single 5,500 lbs Working Load Limit winch J-Hook. Additionally, Utility has included a storage system allowing for up to 10 J-Hooks to securely lock on each side of the trailer.
The new system can currently be used with all types of hauls with the exception of coil operation, which Utility plans to make available later this year. The ALSS system is now available in all standard flatbeds and drop decks as an option as well as the Tautliner with the optional pocket spools and rub rail.
