Semi-trailer manufacturer Schmitz Cargobull has added a new product to its general cargo portfolio, the S.CS Freepost, which has been developed to meet the requirements of the UK and Irish markets without the need for sliding posts.
The S.CS Freepost offers quick, easy and safe side loading by incorporating a bolted galvanised steel cant rail and fixed aluminium roof sheet as well as a reinforced chassis structure.
In addition to high body stability, the design of the S.CS Freepost is focused on handling, the safety of the goods, driver and loaders. It is available in different heights from 4.2m to 4.8m.
The S.CS Freepost does not require any sliding posts and offers the driver free, lateral loading and unloading with a side aperture height of up to 3.2m. To facilitate unloading, the curtain can be tensioned from both the front and the rear. Additional driver safety is provided by Schmitz Cargobull’s Susi-Rail, with electrical and pneumatic connections which can be moved to the edge of the trailer so coupling can be achieved without climbing between the tractor and trailer.
Flexible load securing points, with continuous lashing holes in the side rave and an optional 16 pairs of four-tonne lashing rings are available for optimum load securing. Load shift can be prevented by optional load securing straps, which are tensioned from the rave to the roof track. Additional security against unauthorised access is provided by a 1.8 metre-high anti-slash mesh integrated inside the curtains.
Like all Schmitz Cargobull trailers, the S.CS Freepost is also equipped with the proven repair-friendly Modulos chassis with a ten-year guarantee against rust-through. The chassis is complemented by the Rotos axles and suspension, which are guaranteed for 1 million km or six years.
The trailer is also fitted with the TrailerConnect telematics system from Schmitz Cargobull as standard. TrailerConnect offers intelligent connectivity and supports rapid diagnosis and processing of the collected data from all components.
