Load racks at the front & rear are necessary on most trailers carrying general freight as they can help stop the freight moving. They can be supplied in 2 classes from light weight up to heavy duty.
Light weight load racks can be fitted with flat inserts inside the bottom 250mm to help stop them cracking or bending at the bottom. This enables you to have a load rack that can still be handled easily but less chance of cracking or bending at the bottom.
Load racks & gates are kept in stock for most makes of trailers or if not in stock can be made to order in a short time.
Some newer trailers have special curtains which are classed as load restraining, but you would need to check with the manufacturer.
Load restraint curtains are generally designed for equal loading such as a full load of pallets of equal weight.
You can purchase the gates to suit your size truck & weld the pins on to suit the holes in the tray.
Pins & catches can be supplied as well as different types of gate pockets to suit the tray.
You will need to know what type of combing the tray has. The combing is the steel beam running along the edge of the tray. It may be a channel, RSJ /eyebeam, or a flat bar combing.
If it is a flat bar combing, we need to know the overall width of the tray to determine if the gate pockets can go on the outside or have to go on the inside under the floor.
The maximum width including the gate pockets is 2500mm.
Fittings available: Banana Catches, Corner Pins, Corner Chains and Gate Pockets & Pins. See Accessories.
A good tip is when you are travelling empty to lay the gates down as this is when they rattle around and the metal becomes fatigued!
The reason for the mine-site safety gates are that they are much lighter and easy to handle, are painted yellow (required by most mine sites) and are only waist high, making it easy to load or unload over the top of the gate yet any person standing on the truck or trailer has something to stop them from stepping over the edge.
There are no standards regarding these gates or how they should be fitted, but some mine sites have their own standards so you would need to check with the mine site that you are transporting to.
The access ladder is incorporated into the load rack which is 900mm high. When not being used the ladder folds up out of the way.
By having it on the rear it does not have to be removed for loading of the trailer and means less chance of the freight obstructing the opening of the gate.
