Truck News

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Carrier Transicold, in partnership with ITW Insulated Products, has announced the offering of its “one-size-fits-all” UB1 Universal Bulkhead. Company officials say they are designed to be lightweight, simple to use and to eliminate the sizing problems usually associated with conventional bulkheads.

The UB1 Bulkheads can be ordered for any size trailer and are portable.

“Simplified ordering is just one aspect of why we offer the universal bulkhead. However the real benefit is in the portability of these units from trailer to trailer, as well as helping reduce cost by no longer having to stock individual trailer bulkheads,” said Ralph Bott, general manager of Carrier’s Replacement Components Group.

The universal bulkhead consists of two large two-inch-thick insulated panels that overlap to create a barrier that fits within a trailer of any common dimension. Officials say the patent-pending design is easier to operate than oversized conventional bulkheads and will provide a thermal efficient seal, even in older bowed trailers. According to Bott, “the lightweight design makes drivers happy because it reduces installation time and driver fatigue.”
