East has introduced a new time saving and safety option to its drop deck trailers — an all-aluminum tarp storage box built into the floor of the upper or lower deck. This on-deck access location reduces multiple ups and downs on the trailer (lessening the chance for falls) to tarp the load, or store the tarp and tie-downs, which saves time and energy for both tasks.
The tarp storage boxes are available in various depth configurations, depending on the drop at the neck and beam depth of the drop deck trailer, and can be placed in either the top deck, bottom deck or both decks. Dimensions of the upper deck storage boxes are 35 in. long by 13 in. wide, maximum 22 in. deep (89 by 33 cm, maximum 56 cm). Lower deck box dimensions are 49 ½ in. long by 42 ½ in. wide, maximum 21 in. deep (126 by 108 cm, maximum 53 cm).
Headquartered in Randolph, Ohio, East Manufacturing Corporation offers a full line of aluminum dump, platform and refuse trailers, straight trucks with dump bodies, and heavy duty trucking accessories. Ranked in the top 20 trailer manufacturers in the U.S., East has a network of more than 70 trailer dealer locations and 350 accessories dealer locations nationwide.
