California ‘Low Approach’ Slidebacks in Steel or Aluminium

Our ‘California’ “Low Approach” Slidebacks have specially designed Initial Low Approach Angles so you can load cars with low spoilers more easily. With their Aluminium Outer Bodies, hot dipped Galvanised Chassis Sub Frames, Inner Bodies and Chassis Fittings, our Slidebacks give you more legal payload without any of the problems of rust you might have with steel.

Our aluminium sections, that are produced to our unique designs and manufactured from our own dies, give you great strength. And our Outer bodies’ main sliding channels are made from aluminium, not steel, and welded to our aluminium floor. Giving you more payload and none of the problems that can occur when steel channels are clamped with bolts to an aluminium floor.

Available on Chassis from 3.5- 16 tonnes

Key Design Specifications

 

Steel body

  • Design Capacities from 3.5 – 8 Tonnes. Designed by professional designers with over 40 years experience using the latest 3D computer aided design technology our Slidebacks are very strong.
  • Steel Outer Body with low initial ‘Low Approach’ angle. Our Outer Body’s low loading angle and initial ‘Low Approach’ angle means there is less chance of damaging cars with low spoilers.
  • Flyer. Attractive looking, full width and cab high.
  • Body Rollers, fitted to rear of Outer Body. Three wide rollers means there is less chance of damaging soft tarmac drives and they’re easy to replace if you ever need to.
  • Galvanised Chassis Subframe, Inner Body and Chassis Fittings. Will never need painting and always look smart.
  • Inner Body fitted with full length ‘Easy – Slide’ low friction bearing strips. Very smooth body sliding operation. Full length bearing strips spread load, so much less friction and wear.
  • Hydraulic Controls fitted to N/S. Heavy duty polyethylene Locker fitted to rear N/S with Illuminated Control Levers.
  • Single Lever Operation with ‘float’ valve. Manual levers to give you complete control over the Body’s operation and the ability to load vehicles on hills or when their heaviest weight is at the rear body.
  • Twin Lifting Rams with Extra Long Stroke Body Sliding Ram. All Hydraulic Rams are fitted with fail safe devices and the Extra Long Body Sliding Ram gives you the best possible loading angle.
  • Automatic Locking/Unlocking of Body. No manual locks to operate. Safer because it reduces time spent at the roadside.
