Strick Trailers has released a fiberglass reinforced composite dry van trailer, offering a combination of light weight, durability, longevity and low-cost maintenance.
The FRC trailer made its debut during American Trucking Associations' Technology & Maintenance Council Annual Meeting in Atlanta, Georgia, showcasing a 53-foot beverage linehaul van for regional delivery and a 40-foot beverage van featuring an overhead door with lift gate, custom E-Track system, insulation package, and Thermo King heater unit for local delivery.
The FRC is available in any combination from 28-foot pups to 60-foot linehaul vans providing carriers a customized trailer to meet the demands of daily operations. The FRC trailers are offered with interior optional features such as E-track, various cargo control systems, and enhanced insulation packages for greater climate control abilities to meet specific delivery requirements. The FRC Trailers are assembled in Monroe, Indiana.
“By means of a new revolutionary sidewall construction process, we’re able to combine select materials to create seamless, snag-free, full-length FRC side-wall panels that are pultruded with a moisture-resistant P.E.T. core that is 100% recyclable,” said Justin Bell, vice president of Strick Engineering. “This process guarantees longevity as the panels will not delaminate, and the hydrophobic characteristic prevents "wicking", ensuring zero water intrusion or corrosion.”
