Somerset-based RT Keedwell is expanding its fleet with the addition of 80 new trailers from Lawrence David.

The straight frame, tri-axle trailers are TUV EN 12642-XL certified. It means each Lawrence David Amoursheet-XL load-bearing curtain can, when combined with the all-bolted [as opposed to welded] trailer body, contain unsecured loads of up to 3500kg.

The trailers feature RT Keedwell’s blue, white and red colour scheme including blue and red wheel rims, fully painted red chassis and matching blue curtain strap webbings.

They have LED corner lights fitted to the front and rear top corners, one piece alloy roof sheets with Lawrence David track and valance, twin-row galvanised steel load retention tracks, Bridgestone tyres and a pull out ladder fitted to the rear.

Thirty of the new trailers also come fitted with Joloda’s F-track flooring system. The system, designed to hold paper reels, allows for brackets to be fitted in various position along the track, allowing for multiple configurations.

The trailers closely follow the delivery of 50 Mercedes-Benz Actros tractor units, which joined a fleet of more than 550 trucks and around 1,280 trailers.
