Supertrucks van rack tackles multiple uses

Supertrucks has launched a new multi-purpose rack to tackle the rapid growth in popularity of bigger, heavier products, such as bi-fold doors and windows, and orangeries.

Fabricated from lightweight aluminium, the rack is secured to the exterior of the vehicle without the need to drill the sidewall, protecting vehicle bodywork warranties and resale values.

Instead, the new frails are fixed at the top to a roof rack, and at the bottom, depending on the base vehicle, either by making use of pre-existing holes or by drilling one or two new ones on the underside, where they cannot be seen.

The new solution brings a choice of folding ledges capable of carrying products with a depth of 150mm or 225mm – this compares to the industry standard of 90mm – and has been developed to offer improved wind resistance and an easy-use strap securing system and second-stage trim carrier.

It can be fitted at various Supertrucks locations throughout the UK and Europe, while the firm also offers a UK collect, fit and return service at weekends.

The  new rack is available for trial by prospective customers on a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van supplied by East Midlands dealer Mertrux Truck & Van.

For more details, contact Mertrux sales controller – van Frank Murray on 0115 9248 121 or 07779 123525, or by emailing [email protected]
