Flatbeds trucks are trucks or a lorry that have no roof and no body. The back is entirely flat with no sides. The level bed body allows the truck to be loaded easily and for heavy haul trucking which mostly are not vulnerable goods like heavy equipment to construction lumber and from granite to delicate electronics. Flat beds are designed to handle tough demands by carrying tons of weight.
The flatbeds come in different designs and lengths. The 53 feet flatbed is a longer truck bed that would carry more load than some of the other truck beds. There is also the curtain side flatbed trucks that are covered on all sides with a cover to give the goods privacy, protection and reduce the chances of goods been removed from the side during transportation.
Quality flatbeds are made strong with frame rails and cross members made of channel which does not hold water and is not conducive to rusting. Durability and longevity is one of the key features of a quality flatbed. Other special features that are found in these flatbeds include air ride and spread axles, which are for stabilization and protection of the cargo.
