East introduces flatbed floor, tie down system

East's flatbed options

East Manufacturing introduces its newly designed flatbed trailer floor along with its new tie down system.

According to East, the newly designed floor increases the strength of the flatbed, resulting in a 10% increase in strength under a distributed load and 30% increase under a concentrated load. In addition, it is more streamlined to reduce installation time, eliminating the need to install coil package flooring (CLP) inserts and reducing the weight of a 48-ft. flatbed trailer by 24 lb., the company says.

The new integrated extruded aluminum outside rail tie down system for cargo securement is standard on East BST, BST II and MMX flatbed trailers as well as the East BST and BST II drop deck trailers. The new system eliminates the need for welds and reduces the assembly time. In addition, it is available as an option on the inside and center tie down tracks, East says.
