Transdek patents Wedge double deck trailer

Transdek has been granted a patent for its fixed double deck trailer for its Wedge chassis/body design, which allows full-height loading on both decks, including over the neck.

The company says this design means that compared to powered double deck alternatives, the Wedge trailer can offer up to 25 per cent additional load volume and up to seven-tonnes extra payload by weight.

Managing director Mark Adams, said: “I’m delighted that the Wedge trailer’s innovative design has received a patent grant. At Transdek, we always try to push the boundaries of accepted industry standards, to see if we can work with our customers to offer real added value to the supply chain.”
