Suttle Transport raves about Krone Profi Liner01 August 2017

Wetherby-based Suttle Transport Services has acquired three lifting, sliding-roof Krone Profi Liner curtainsiders to carry its diverse high-cube loads.

The cargo ranges from packaging materials to horticultural products and equipment for the events industry.

Suttle’s managing director Alan Suttle says the Profi Liner “gives the loading flexibility required for over-sized and mixed freight. Trees, for example, or stage equipment can be loaded through the top and then literally wrapped, as the roof is lowered to the appropriate running height.”

For domestic use, the trailers run at a height of 4,112 mm. For continental Europe deliveries, the roof can be lowered in 50mm stages – by up to 150mm – to comply with the 4m height restriction.

When loading, the roof can be raised by up to 500mm, which allows an impressive 3060mm height through the sides and rear. After loading is complete, the roof is then closed and lowered to its chosen height.

The Profi Liners are supplied as standard with multi-lock side raves, each of which has up to 130 lashing points.

“With the Krone Multi Lock system, we can strap anywhere along each side rave, which makes it possible to securely load cages, pallets or whatever at any point along the trailer bed,” adds Suttle.

“Plus, to complement this, the trailers come with Krone’s roof-mounted straps, which slide along the trailer length and pull down to fix onto the side raves – again, great all-round flexibility.”
