At IAA Commercial Vehicles 2014, Kögel will be presenting the Cargo platform semi-trailer with sliding tarpaulin and drop side. This combination is particularly popular in Eastern Europe and is ideal for use in cross-border freight transport.
In addition, the Cargo TIR scores with its robustness, extensive set of standard equipment and diverse customised equipment. In addition to its high-quality workmanship, the Kögel Cargo TIR is also distinguished by its low maintenance costs and enormously flexibility in use.
The highly stable frame has a sophisticated cross beam arrangement for the transport of heavy loads and use in a very wide variety of road conditions, daily harsh loading operations, and extreme conditions. The floor load-bearing capacity can bear high fork-lift axle loads of up to 7.2 tons. The Kögel Cargo TIR also has a low tare weight and a really robust body.
Thanks to two continuous, 220-millimetre-thick roof frame profiles, no rung supports are required when the side tarpaulin is open. The trailer with standard equipment has a tare weight of around 6,000 kilograms. This makes it ideally suited for heavy-duty transport. Naturally, the Cargo TIR has the DIN EN 12642 Code XL load-securing certificate.
The Cargo TIR on exhibit is fitted with the new standard Kögel aluminium rear wall door. This comes not only with a self-cleaning trilobular shaft guide but also with inexpensive and easily replaceable single articulated hinges for great ease of repair.
Security and customs seal
Because of the Kögel integral roof tarpaulin, there are no belts hanging into the loading area of the Kögel Cargo when the roof is open; they are integrated into the roof tarpaulin. This entirely eliminates straps snagging on the load.
The exhibition vehicle can also be optionally equipped with four pairs of hinged, 600-millimetre-high side walls made from hollow aluminium profiles with tie-rods and tarpaulin anchors for the customs seal. For top cargo security and fast clearance in customs duty traffic, the TIR sliding tarpaulin has tarpaulin eyelets to close the tarpaulin against the drop side with a continuous customs-approved cable.
Cathodic dip-paint coating
As in all Kögel freight vehicles, the entire vehicle frame of the Cargo TIR is given long-lasting protection against corrosion by nano ceramic technology and cathodic dip-paint coating, supplemented with UV lacquering.
