The Alutrec Difference

Posted: August 1, 2014


We built our reputation on our knowledge of the industry and the quality of our products.  

Flatbed trailers must prove themselves under the most difficult conditions and offer years of flawless service. Alutrec trailers have been tested time after time; our aluminum flatbed trailers are well known as being the longest lasting and returning the industry’s best ROI.

ALUTREC is the only Canadian manufacturer to design all aluminum flatbed trailers.  Our extensive knowledge of aluminum technology lets us make the most of the material’s strength and durability, while taking advantage of its characteristics. Aluminum means better performance, better designed & built and better priced flatbed trailer and allows you to make the most of your investment.

Not all flatbed trailer manufacturers use the same alloys.Alutrec makes the most of each type of alloy to ensure your aluminum flatbed trailer is as strong as possible. Alutrec beams are designed to use two large aluminum extrusions assembled by using high pressure riveting (Huck-bolt).

The assembly process considers the pressures and compression areas that will affect the beam during travel. Our manufacturing process ensures no broken rivets, weakened structures or loose nuts which could cause excessive torsion. Alutrec flooring beams and cross members are designed to support a 50% larger load than the competition. Alutrec cross members are designed to work in collaboration with our exclusive interlocking floor allowing cross members to be spaced apart.  

This results is a lighter flatbed trailer with beyond structural rigidity. The floor’s aluminum extrusions are closed on all four sides and offer outstanding strength. These extrusions transfer a large portion of the load to the main beam since they are “locked” together. The rest of the structure is not used as intensely and allows it to last longer.  Additionally, the floor pieces are also interlocking together throughout the entire length of the flatbed trailer, offering to maintain the trailer to remain straight and even when turning the tightest curves. This results in better stability on the road.

Aluminum is a material with many unique characteristics of its own and to make the most it, you must understand its properties and take advantage of them. This is where Alutrec reaches new heights. We build each flatbed trailer with the utmost care. We ensure that each step of the process from perforation, welding, folding and mechanical assembly respecting all aluminum property behaviours and maximizing its potential.

The future has yet to be written. This is why we are happy to invest with our customers in new trailer projects. We are also constantly engaged in R&D activities in a continuing effort to improve our products.
