Transdek lifts curtain on new Wedge double-decker19 April 2019

Transdek UK will be unveiling a new 52-pallet curtainside Wedge double-deck trailer at the Commercial Vehicle Show, NEC, Birmingham (30 April to 2 May).

The trailer’s side-loading capability is designed to enable operators to maximise double-deck loading opportunities on both outbound and inbound journeys.

The trailer has a new side post socket design to strengthen the side columns by transferring load to the chassis beams, which, says Transdek, will increase durability compared to conventional curtainside builds.

Reinforced slimline cantrails and second deck support beams provide internal widths of up to 2,470mm. A 40mm aluminium plank second deck and 30mm roof maximise internal clearance on each deck. The trailer runs on a 1,250mm fifth wheel with an overall height of 4,950mm.

“Our curtainside Wedge trailer offers the potential to really look at making significant mileage and cost savings, whether sites have our double-deck lift pods fitted or side load with forklifts,” says Mark Adams, CEO at Transdek.

Visitors to the stand can also see the company’s latest ambient box van Urban Wedge trailer (example pictured). With its 40-pallet, 20-tonne payload capacity, it can transport up to 166% more than a typical 18-tonne rigid. “We’ve trialled it on deliveries to some convenience stores with really tight access, and it managed the routes without a problem,” says Adams.

The Urban Wedge on display has a 1,070mm fifth wheel and an overall height of 4,950mm. It is fitted with Transdek’s new tail-lift design, which has fold-down safety rails and gates to the three open sides, as well as a hydraulically powered drop-down flap.

Visitors can also see live demos of the company's latest V2G modular loading pods.
