Launched in the UK by Truckman, the Decked pull-out drawer solution can be used to securely store tools, kit and equipment while allowing full use of the truck bed.  The system creates a raised deck with a galvanised steel sub-frame within the truck bed, which has a capacity to carry up to 1,000kg.

Manufactured using durable, 100% recycled High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), Decked features integrated drainage channels to keep water away from drawer contents.

Each drawer can carry equipment up to 100kg and opens at waist height.  Further storage capacity is provided by two integrated storage bins that can be accessed through the deck to hold smaller tools.

Optional drawer extras include storage boxes and dividers along with additional locks.

Mike Wheeler, executive chairman of Truckman, said: “Decked has become the ultimate storage solution in the US and we’re delighted to exclusively bring it to the UK for British fleets. The quality of its build means it can stand up to everyday challenges of a range of on-and-off-highway industries serviced by fleets of pick-up trucks while providing an organised and secure storage solution.”

The solution is compatible with the Nissan NP300 Navara, Toyota Hilux, VW Amarok, Isuzu D-Max, Ford Ranger, Mitsubishi L200 and Fiat Fullback, and comes with a three-year warranty.
