CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif. — Utility Trailer has announced it is the first manufacturer to make roll stability a standard spec’ on refrigerated trailers.
The company has standardized roll stability protection from Bendix on its 3000R base model refrigerated trailer.
“Trailer roll stability systems can dramatically improve a fleet’s safety, and we believe that the technology is ready to begin integrating this specification as a standard and not as an optional feature,” said Craig Bennett, senior vice-president of sales and marketing for Utility. “We will begin by adding this important safety component on our base model reefer trailers beginning with orders received in January 2015.”
Utility will be using the Bendix TABS-6 Advanced trailer roll stability program (TRSP). It combines anti-lock braking with a set of trailer sensors that monitor stability and can quickly and automatically apply the brakes when a rollover situation is imminent.
