Ekeri’s new design on door turner and midpole

Ekeri has developed a new door turner that will make it easier to handle the side doors

Chelmsford, UK:  Ekeri has developed a new door turner that will make it easier to handle the side doors. The new door turners will be introduced on new products during spring 2018.

The new design will prevent goods grabbing and hooking into the mid-pole when loading/unloading are carried out through the rear doors.

The new midpole will be introduced on the following Ekeri units with side doors: light insulated (dry freight) units with 45mm walls, FNA and FRC units. The new middle pole will also be introduced on new products during spring 2018.

Bror Eklund founded Ekeri in 1945. By the 1950s the company was building its first trailers, and by the 1960s the first semi-trailers. Since the end of the 1970s Ekeri has been manufacturing side-opening units.
