The 20K Duct Floor System becomes standard on the market-leading 3000R base model
What are the standard features on a 3000R refrigerated van? That is always a great question to ask. At Utility, standard means more than the minimum. Utility’s 20K Duct Floor System is the new standard floor on the 3000R base model refrigerated trailers.
“We always look to deliver more value to our customers by continually improving the performance of our trailers. That is why our 20K Duct Floor System is the new standard floor on the market-leading 3000R. The 20K Duct Floor System is the highest-rated standard floor in the industry, and the advantage of its design is that it keeps the 3000R light weight, because the floor requires no other structural enhancements,” said Jeffrey Bennett, Vice President Engineering & Product Development for Utility. “It also handles a concentrated load better than any other standard floor in the industry.”
The 20K Duct Floor System features a 20,000 lb fork truck rating capacity for fork trucks with 12” wide front tires. With a wear surface that is 30% thicker on the top flange and 27% thicker on the bottom flange than Utility’s prior 16K standard floor, the high-wear aluminum duct floor delivers optimal performance, increases service life and weighs approximately 300 lb less than the previous 20K floor option.
