New Supertrucks oversize folding ledges
To better suit the transport requirements of the window, door and conservatory trades Supertrucks has now developed a new, wider folding ledge for its external glass racks. Available in 170mm and 200mm widths these new folding ledges are made using the company’s new and patented suite of alloy extrusions, developed to allow optimum structural strength to be combined with low weight. The standard 150mm fixed or folding ledge is still available to meet the majority of glazing customer requirements.
New Supertrucks GLASS STOP! system
The Supertrucks load restraint system, GLASS STOP!, has been further improved. The quick release locking system it is now even easier and faster to use. GLASS STOP! prevents glass, window frames, garage doors and the like carried on external racks moving forward in an emergency stop.

Mounted on the nearside of the vehicle the glazing table option incorporates telescopic gas struts to make lowering/raising easier and safer – and in the down position sturdy fold-down legs ensure the table provides a stable working platform. The fold down glazing tables are available in a wide range of standard sizes and can be powder coated to match the colour of the van.
New Supertrucks ladder system
A versatile side ladder system to provide access to the roof rack. The benefits the new side ladder system, which is incorporated into the glass rack, include safer and faster access to the roof load. Also, the side ladder can be detached from the vehicle to free up the full usable length of the rack.
