The St Helens based company has just supplied the first Fit & Glaze rack system to Hourglass, a Havant-based specialist glass manufacturer.
Peter Wright, Supertrucks chairman, explains, “Our new Fit & Glaze demountable glass carrying system has been engineered to fit virtually any modern panel van. As such, the new Fit & Glaze is both easier and faster to fit/remove and yet it provides a safe and secure method of carrying up to 350kg of glazing product on an exterior rack.”
The Fit & Glaze system, which is priced from £740.00 + VAT, is designed to meet the requirements of building maintenance and glazing companies who do not regularly carry large glazing products on their vehicles. With the new Fit & Glaze these companies can share one rack between a number of vehicles to provide maximum operational flexibility. Two men can fit or remove the Fit & Glaze rack from a van in just two minutes. The rack fits over the top fixing bar and is secured to the bottom fixing points using easy to align turn-screw fixings.
Peter Collins, owner of Hourglass, a long-established specialist glass manufacturer, comments, “Fit & Glaze is ideal for our business where we only have an occasional requirement to carry large items of glass. We now have the flexibility to run two of our vans with neither or either fitted with the rack. It is the first Supertrucks rack we have bought and we have been very impressed with both the service provided by the company and the quality of the product, which we expect to last for very many years”.
Hourglass has specified the new Fit & Glaze for its latest fleet additions, two Renault Master long wheelbase high top panel vans. Supertrucks has fitted both these vans with full length full width roof racks and the top and bottom fixing points for the 3,500mm high by 2,870mm long Fit & Glaze demountable side rack. The rack has a white powder coat finish (mill finish or anodised is also available) and is equipped with three System 1 securing poles, marker boards and inclinometer.
In addition to the new Fit & Glaze demountable rack system Supertrucks also manufacturers a comprehensive range of fixed glass carrying racks and associated equipment for all popular makes of panel vans. The company also offers coachbuilt glass carrying bodies for chassis cabs in the 3.5 to 26 tonne gvw sector.
