Barnshaws Section Benders will be present at the Commercial Vehicle show this April, displaying a wide range of precision curved metal solutions designed specifically for the transport industry. All the products present on stand are designed to maximise service life and minimise operating costs for fleet transport managers. Barnshaws representatives will be available at Stand 3B75 for the duration of the event to discuss requirements.

The Commercial Vehicle Show 2017 takes place from 25th – 27th April, at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham, UK.

The Commercial Vehicle Show is the largest of its kind in the UK, attracting major decision makers in the transport industry from around the globe. Barnshaws will be primarily focusing on curved aluminium for streamlined commercial trailers, along with press braked wear plate, used on tipper truck trailer bodies. With decades of experience supplying to the industry, Barnshaws can offer distinct advantages to transport operators with its high quality metal products.

Precision curved aluminium profiles are lightweight, making them an ideal choice for aerodynamic trailers. Curved trailers offer minimal wind resistance, which, when coupled with a low weight, serves to increase fuel economy for vehicles in a fleet. Aerodynamically efficient trailers also boost aesthetics, creating a truly modern image for any commercial fleet. Barnshaws offers aluminium profiles in a wide variety of radii from its exclusively non-ferrous workshop, ensuring the utmost quality.

Tipping trucks have a hard working life, which is why a wear resistant plate tipping body is of the utmost importance to ensure reliability and profitability. High impact tolerance, increased load bearing capabilities and greater volume capacity are the benefits of selecting a Barnshaws press braked wear plate trailer body. Formed with minimal welding and high grade wear plate for maximum strength, Barnshaws tipping trailer bodies offer the commercial advantages of an increased load, with the security of improved safety and durability.

Visitors to the stand will also have a chance to collect Barnshaws mouse mats, pens, trolley tokens, notepads and for the lucky few, foldable Barnshaws truck models.
