Unique Mainbeam Construction
Ensures strength from front to rear
The Freedom LT beam design features a one-piece mainbeam web with heavy-duty 100 KSI top and bottom flanges
Crossmembers pass through the steel mainbeams and are fastened securely using attachment clips and fatigue-resistant lock bolts. Use of attachment clips in place of welding, which is prone to fatigue and cracking, reduces wear and ensures long-lasting service.
Standard Safty Grip Aluminum Floor
The 1.25-inch aluminum floor is standard with four apitong nailing strips and features a safety-grip surface for positive traction when walking on the deck and to help restrain cargo movement. Twelve pair of pull-up chain ties are recessed in the floor for additional cargo securement.
