East has introduced new safety option to their drop deck trailers, an all-aluminum tarp storage box built into the floor of the upper or lower deck.
This on-deck access location reduces multiple trips up and down on the trailer (lessening the chance for falls) to tarp the load, or store the tarp and tie-downs, which saves time and energy for both tasks.
The tarp storage boxes are available in various depth configurations, depending on the drop at the neck and beam depth of the drop deck trailer, and can be placed in either the top deck, bottom deck, or both decks.
Dimensions of the upper deck storage boxes are 35 inches long by 13 inches wide (maximum 22 inches deep). Lower deck box dimensions are 49 1/2 inches by 42 1/2 inches (maximum 21 inches deep).
