What is the rib for?
One of the most used means of transport in the industrial, commercial, and working fields is the truck. There are hundreds of companies on the Italian territory which – added together ¬– have a decidedly impressive vehicle fleet that constantly moves across the country and abroad. In this environment, a vital part is the ability to quickly load and unload the vehicles to quickly leave for the next customer. In this function the rib comes to the rescue of drivers – it is a sheet of very resistant plastic material that mounted on the truck on a metal structure gives the possibility to load and unload the goods in a much simpler way giving a wide possibility of access to the compartment of the vehicle.
There are ribs with access from above, accordion, side, but also fixed. This speeds up logistical processes and this leads to a saving of time and money. We come to this scenario with our many years of experience in setting up ribs for industrial vehicles in order to create and provide the customer with the best solution for his fleet and for the type of transport he carries out.
What does cambering mean?
The rib is a truly invaluable tool to make the loading and unloading process fast and easy for all professionals. There are ribs that give lateral access to the vehicle and ribs that give access from above in order to lower the goods from above, there are also accordion solutions in order to discover the entire vehicle completely and easily and thus have full access. Fixed solutions are also very popular as they are sometimes needed as solutions for some customers. Now well established in our area, we take care of the vehicle arches i.e., the creation of this type of set-up to provide the best service and thus speed up the logistical factors of our customers.
The ability to speed up and make the loading and unloading phase easier in any situation is not a factor to be underestimated. This helps the company to maintain its turnover and expand its production capacity.
How are the ribs made?
There are a variety of ribs, as many as there are customer needs. Basically, they are composed of a tarpaulin of waterproof plastic material resistant to traction and tearing which is fixed on a metal structure of various shapes which is in the rear part of the vehicle – i.e., the area that is used for loading and unloading goods or material transported so this makes access to the area and to the load easy. The configuration of this structure can be suitable for allowing the loading of goods from above by lowering them in the middle, or allowing the lateral opening of the rib in order to be able to access the inside from the sides.
The accordion solution allows you to literally uncover the vehicle completely easily and then subsequently cover it with equal ease. The fixed structure is used in some cases and some customers also need this type of solution. Our company is responsible for providing the customer with the solution that best suits his needs to satisfy his company. Thanks to our experience we are ready to satisfy any type of request and realization.
