Utility to make Bendix roll stability a standard spec on refrigerated trailer

Dec. 12, 2014

Utility Trailer Manufacturing Co. said it will now include trailer roll stability as a standard spec on its 3000R base model refrigerated trailers.

“Trailer roll stability systems can dramatically improve a fleet’s safety, and we believe that the technology is ready to begin integrating this specification as a standard and not as an optional feature,” said Craig Bennett, senior vice president of 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) on the units. 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 multi-channel (MC) configurations.
