Freighter introduces a new automated mezzanine deck for its T-Liner trailers.
Freighter’s new innovation is designed to simplify the loading process of mezzanine decks by expediting loading times without loss of pallet space.
Freighter General Manager, Mario Colosimo explains that the electro-hydraulic Auto Mezz Deck solution is fast, quiet and reliable, and works with the push of the button to speed up loading times for operators, saving them the hassle of having to raise and lower mezzanine decks with a forklift.
Freighter’s Auto Mezz Deck design does not occupy more space than a standard mezzanine deck. Keeping in mind that any new technology must not come at the expense of load space, Freighter’s engineers focussed on ensuring there was no loss of pallet space by keeping posts at the same width to those on a manual deck. A full 2m height clearance is also available when the mezzanine deck is fully lowered.
OH&S benefits delivered by the new automated mezzanine decks include spring actuated locks integrated as a ‘fail-safe’ feature, eliminating any risk of the decks slipping down further than intended when raising and lowering. Upon releasing the controls, the deck automatically locks itself into the next available position, eliminating OH&S risks. Green and red indicators provide further OH&S safeguards. Being mechanical, the indicators are reliable and not prone to failure or electrical faults.
Freighter’s Auto Mezz Deck can be integrated into orders across its range of T-Liner trailers including the standard, LoadHold, EziLiner and Insuliner products. The automated mezzanine deck is available now via Freighter’s Australian and New Zealand dealer network.
