Montracon offers great flexibility in flat trailers

Montracon tells us that it exploits fully the versatility of the flat platform trailer, commonly known in the industry as ‘Flats’. Specifically, it adds that it produces a range of model derivatives, including dual-purpose units that offer the flexibility to handle a wide and diverse range of payloads, flexibility unmatched by any other trailer type.

In straight frame trim, Montracon says that their flats platform can also be supplied complete with twistlocks to carry ISO containers and/or with stanchions/sockets to contain payloads as diverse as logs and equipment for drilling rigs.

In addition, it can be fitted with dropsides or be supplied with an integral coil well to carry steel rolls. Fixed or removable headboards are offered at any height in 50mm increments. Specification of the ‘toe out’ heavy-duty side rave provides an alternative ‘hook’ for load straps. Other models include a rolling tilt or, indeed, a rolling or centre mounted crane for handling ‘heavy side’ building and construction materials, notably bricks and blocks.

For specialist operations, Montracon tells us that it offers the extendible or trombone trailer. It stretches to accommodate indivisible loads such as beams and bridge spans. Last but not least, Montracon offers a step frame model used typically to move light plant and equipment.

Add this to Montracon’s boast of a reputation for low overall cost of operation, with durability and longevity forged over more than 30years of supplying the road transport, building and construction industries, and the result is hard to beat.

Standard spec trailers are fitted with drum brakes and are available ex-stock, with a range of popularly specified options pre-engineered and available for fitting either on or offline to aid fast delivery.

In addition, Montracon tells us that their engineers work closely with customers to develop bespoke designs matched to meet exact operating needs.
