Don-Bur De-Mountable Bodywork

Straight-lift or Contact systems to suit curtainsided or box van bodywork and draw-bar combinations.

The DON-BUR De-Mountable Bodywork system is engineered and manufactured in-house, including chassis-cab installations, trailers, base frames and bodywork. They are fully compatible/interchangeable with existing systems (straight lift/ contact) without the need for third party involvement.

What is de-mountable bodywork?

Demount Bodies (or Demountable Bodywork) refers to bodywork that can be simply detached/re-attached from the chassis cab or draw-bar trailer unit and stand independently on integral landing legs.

To give greater flexibility in the warehouse, loading and unloading can be carried out at a time to suit the warehouse staff. The vehicles and drivers are out delivering instead of remaining on the loading dock waiting to be loaded. Demount systems result in reduced driver hours and a faster turnaround from the loading point. This also eliminates "parked-up" units which would otherwise be waiting for work.

Contact System

Action: Bodywork frame rolls horizontally along guide rails before being fixed with Twist-Locks.

Two fixed legs at rear corners and two fold-up legs at front.

Straight-Lift System

Action: Bodywork lifts vertically away from the chassis using the vehicle air suspension or on-board hydraulic lifting device before being fixed with Twist-Locks. Heavy duty cones are fitted for ease of unit location.

Four fold-up legs positioned at each corner.

The Straight-lift system lends itself well to draw-bar combinations as both de-mountable units can be positioned and fixed in one move.

Draw-Bar De-Mounts

By using De-Mountable Bodywork with Draw-Bar combinations, further flexibility is achieved, enabling both trunking and secondary distribution without expensive warehousing or staff. By optimising the number of prime movers/draw-bar trailers and de-mount units, operators can minimise their fleetholding.
