Freighter introduces an automated mezzanine deck for its range of T-Liner trailers. 

Designed to simplify the loading process of mezzanine decks, the new automated design will expedite loading times without loss of pallet space.

Freighter General Manager, Mario Colosimo explains that the electro-hydraulic Auto Mezz Deck solution is fast, quiet and reliable, and works with the push of a button. Freighter’s new innovation is certain to speed up loading times for operators, saving them the hassle of having to raise and lower mezzanine decks with a forklift.

Occupying no more space than a standard mezzanine deck, Freighter’s Auto Mezz Deck has been designed with industry feedback, especially that any new technology must not come at the expense of load space. Freighter engineers focussed on ensuring there was no loss of pallet space by keeping posts at the same width to those on a manual deck. A full 2m height clearance is also available when the mezzanine deck is fully lowered.

Mario also highlighted the occupational health and safety benefits provided by Freighter’s Auto Mezz Decks including spring actuated locks integrated into the product as a ‘fail-safe’ feature. The spring loaded deck locks eliminate any risk of the decks slipping down further than intended when raising and lowering. Upon releasing the controls, the deck automatically locks itself into the next available position, without any OH&S concerns. Mechanical green and red indicators that are not prone to failure or electrical faults provide further OH&S safeguards. 

Freighter’s Auto Mezz Deck can be integrated into orders across its range of T-Liner models including the standard, LoadHold, EziLiner and Insuliner products.

Freighter trailers are available from MaxiTRANS Australia Pty Ltd .
