Utility Trailer Manufacturing Co. Announces 20K Duct Floor System as New Standard on the Market-Leading 3000R®

December 4, 2018

CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 4, 2018--, the industry’s largest manufacturer of refrigerated trailers and a leading manufacturer of dry freight vans, flatbeds, Tautliner ® curtainsided trailers, and aerodynamic technologies, announced its 20K Duct Floor System as the new standard floor on the 3000R ® base model refrigerated trailer.

“We always look to deliver more value to our customers by continually improving the performance of our trailers, which is why the 20K Duct Floor is the new standard floor on the 3000R ®. The 20K Duct Floor System is the highest-rated standard floor in the industry, and its design keeps the 3000R light weight, because the floor requires no other structural enhancements,” said Jeffrey Bennett, Vice President, Engineering & Product Development for Utility.

The 20K Duct Floor System features a 20,000 lb. floor rating capacity for fork trucks with 12” wide front tires. Its aluminum duct floor planks have 30% more upper wear thickness than Utility’s prior 16K standard floor — increasing service life and delivering optimal performance.
