TORONTO, Ont. – Ancra International LLC recently launched its new Lift-A-Deck II, which, according to the manufacturer is a new way to maximize space and cost savings.
The Lift-A-Deck II uses a narrow aluminum, low-profile cargo tract to create a second deck height for palletized freight.
It is available in four styles to meet every application and its standard track length is 72-inches, but custom lengths are available as well.
Maintenance is minimal for the Lift-A-Deck II. Its predecessor was made of steel, which meant it had to be greased, but with this system, greasing is no longer necessary.
It can be retrofitted to any trailer, and instead of lessening the trailer’s integrity, the beams add strength and support.
Ancra beams have the highest rating in the industry with the ability to support 2,200lb on the second deck.
This is all while only adding 800lb per truck – 40 per cent less than other decks on the market.
Beams can be adjusted by one-inch increments to accommodate various loads within a trailer, and the beams can be easily moved by one operator.
There is a tapered, snag-resistant design to the mounts on the track, and improved double-engagement locks on the beams.
Both features help protect against forklift damage.
Ancra has 30 years of research into beam straps and wratchet-like seat fittings for the aircraft industry and has since taken that research to the transportation industry and applied it to the Lift-A-Deck II.
The system can pay for itself in as few as two loads, so it can be a significant contributor to a fleet’s bottom line, according to the company.
