Fontaine Trailer now offers the patented RASR routed-aluminum side rail on the 2012 line of Infinity platform, dropdeck, and twistlock container trailers.
The side rail is a one-piece aluminum extrusion that’s said to be significantly lighter than steel while withstanding impact damage better. The design also offers faster, easier, more convenient load securement and greater durability, Fontaine says.
The entire Infinity line is constructed with fabricated-steel main beams and steel cross-bracing with aluminum siderails, floor, and rear skirt. The result is said to deliver the right blend of strength, weight, and economy. Infinity main beams are built with grade-130 flanges and welded continuously on both sides. The design and construction are so strong that Fontaine backs it in writing with the XtremeBeam lifetime warranty.
