Improve operational safety with the tipper body stand

ABS Trailquip offers the road transport industry a variety of truck and trailer parts including air brake valves and accessories, air brake fittings, air springs, suspensions, axles, calipers, rotors, disc pads, converter dollies, LED lighting, rims and tyres, shock absorbers and more.

Based in Rocklea, Queensland, ABS Trailquip serves as a wholesaler and retailer of trucking componentry as well as a manufacturer of special application axles and suspension systems.

Improving its product range and emphasising the benefits of using heavy vehicle equipment that is efficient and safe to use has always been the core value of the ABS Trailquip team.

Expanding its product portfolio, ABS Trailquip recently introduced an industry-first safety stand for tipper bodies that is designed to prevent accidental harm and injuries.

“Users can place it between the raised tipper body and vehicle chassis to prevent the tipper body from unintentionally coming down and causing serious injury to people working on the vehicle,” said ABS Trailquip director Michael Green.

“Engineers and mechanics are always scrambling to get chokes to put in between a raised tipper body and vehicle chassis before working on it. This is a purpose built product for this application and it will give the people working on the vehicle a peace of mind knowing that a proper safety stand is in place to hold the tipper body.

“The tipper safety stand is 100 per cent made in Australia and has been tested to satisfy the relevant Australian Standards. The tipper safety stand is adjustable to suit most tipper body beam sizes. It also has a safety chain attachment to prevent the stand from sliding out. As these units are made locally, stock availability is never an issue.”

With more than 30 years of experience in the air brake business, Green strives to provide quality truck and trailer products to Australian operators. The business adds value to commercial vehicle builds with the parts it supplies while ensuring drivers are using equipment that champions optimal road safety.

“When dealing with us be assured we know and understand the industry, having many years of experience,” he said.

“Australia has the world’s harshest trucking environment, which assures our overseas customers that our products are the toughest and will go the extra mile.”

ABS Trailquip is a fully committed organisation when it comes to quality, price, service and delivery. It is an ISO 9001 certified company and even has its own in-house quality control system. The business is also certified to supply parts that conform to Australian Design Rules (ADR Specification).
