Body Panel Construction Options

  • Lightweight aluminium pre formed sheets that clasp together to form bulkhead and side sheets (rivet free appearance) but offer a very strong construction. Sheets joined at corners with aluminium radius extrusion and custom side rave section.
  • Solid lightweight aluminium plank extrusion that has excellent impact resistance and enhanced protection against outer pressure, mechanically fixed to aluminium radius corner extrusions and custom side rave section. e.g. suitable for carpet carriers.
  • Polyester GRP composite plywood inner core panels for bulkhead and side walls, mechanically fixed to aluminium extrusions for a very solid build with excellent impact resistance.
  • Ultra lightweight GRP panels with polycarbonate structured inner core offering an excellent strength to weight ratio. Panels are thermally fused which eliminates the possibility of delamination and water ingress but allow for aluminium extrusion jointing with mechanical fixings.

Roof Construction Options

  • Fibre glass one piece clear roof sheet bonded to aluminium pre curved roof sticks with aluminium peripheral extrusion framework and robust corner castings.
  • Fibre glass one piece clear roof sheet adhered to galvanized pre curved roof sticks with wet lay fibreglass and aluminium peripheral extrusion framework and robust corner castings.
