Strick Trailers is proud to exhibit the trucking industry’s first fiberglass reinforced composite (FRC) dry van trailer during the National Private Truck Council (NPTC) 2019 Annual Conference and Exhibition at the Duke Energy Center in downtown Cincinnati. The lightweight, durable, and low-cost maintenance feature combination of Strick’s innovative FRC has been generating a buzz since its initial release during TMC’s 2019 Annual Meeting in Atlanta March 18-21.
Stop by booth # 432 and tour the highly “customer-ized” Strick 53’ lightweight beverage linehaul van for regional delivery, and a 40’ beverage van featuring an overhead door with lift gate, custom E-track system, insulation package, and Thermo King heater unit for local delivery.
“The seamless, snag-free, full-length FRC side-wall panels are pultruded with a moisture-resistant PET core that is 100% recyclable,” says Justin Bell, Vice President of Strick Engineering. “The hydrophobic characteristics prevent ‘wicking,’ ensuring zero water intrusion or weight gain.” Bell also notes that simply removing all alloy components eliminates the concern of any future rust or corrosion.
The FRC is available in any combination from 28’ pups to 60’ vans, and when paired with Strick’s many customized options, provides carriers with an endless array of choices to meet unique trailer demands.
