Utility Sets Another Industry First with Trailer Roll Stability as Standard on the 3000R®
First in the Industry
Utility has added trailer roll stability as a standard feature on the 3000R base model becoming the first trailer manufacturer to include roll stability as a standard on their refrigerated trailers.
“Trailer roll stability systems have now demonstrated themselves as a technology that can dramatically improve a fleet’s safety. We believe that the technology has progressed so that we can begin integrating this specification as a standard and not as an optional feature,” said Craig Bennett, Senior Vice President Sales & Marketing for Utility. “We will begin by adding this important safety component on our base model reefer trailers beginning with orders received in January 2015.”
Utility is including the Bendix® TABS-6 Advanced with Bendix Trailer Roll Stability Program (TRSP). The system combines anti-lock braking (ABS) with a set of trailer sensors, which monitor stability and can quickly and automatically trigger braking intervention when detecting conditions that may lead to a trailer rollover. It is available in single-channel (SC) and optional multichannel (MC) configurations.
