East Manufacturing has incorporated an in-floor storage box for drop-deck trailers. The boxes, designed to hold tarps and tie-downs, can be located at various points on the trailer depending on configuration.
According to East, this on-deck access location reduces the amount of time workers must get up and down on the trailer to tarp the load or store the tarp and tie-downs.
Available in various depth configurations depending on the drop at the neck and beam depth of the drop deck trailer, the boxes can be placed in either the top deck, bottom deck, or both decks. Dimensions of the upper deck storage boxes are 35 in. long x 13 in. wide (maximum 22 in. deep). Lower deck box dimensions are 49 ½ in. long x 42 ½ in. wide (maximum 21 in. deep).
