Redesigned 'galvaneal' truck body
Schodorf Truck Body & Equipment Co., Columbus, Ohio, redesigned its 24-foot-long glass transport truck body. Built with "galvaneal"—a zinc-impregnated, rust-prohibitive sheet metal—the body's exclusive design features heavy-duty extruded aluminum horizontal slats, inside and out. It sports two full-length rows of extruded rubber cushions, and A frames that are pre-sealed and painted prior to assembly. The body features strategically applied rivets and welds to provide the necessary flexibility for a long, productive life. The unit is under-sealed with a state-of-the-art Micro Epoxy paint system, and provides the best strength-to-weight ratio in the industry, according to the supplier.Schodorf Truck Body & Equipment Co.
