New aluminum trailer from Fontaine

Fontaine Trailer has introduced the Fusion aluminum trailer

Fontaine Trailer has introduced the Fusion aluminum trailer, which the company said handles 52,000 lbs. in four feet despite weighing only 8,400 lbs--delivering bigger payloads at a lower fuel cost.

"It's a perfect addition to our aluminum trailer product line," said John Craig, president of Fontaine Trailer Company. "The Phantom takes care of our customers with loads that require a 100,000-lb mainbeam rating and Fusion handles a much larger segment of the market that only needs an 80,000-lb. beam rating."

According to Fontaine, the extruded mainbeam eliminates the high-stress weld between the web and the flange, improving strength and durability, while the 7.5” flange virtually eliminates side-to-side sway.
