Why Aluminium UTE Trays are required?

Posted by Ullrich Alumunium on January 13th, 2021

Aluminium ute trays are very popular and made to last, using heavy duty, high strength aluminium alloy, they are designed to be able to withstand the rigours of both the construction industry and farm use in all weather conditions with almost no maintenance required. They can be painted of left in their raw state and will never rust and are designed with drop down sides to enable easy loading or to accommodate a wide variety of accessories including stock creates, tool boxes and canopies to enhance their functionality.

Some of the top reasons they are required are:

  • Storage capacity

Aluminium ute tray allow for the maximum utilization of the vehicle’s carrying capacity as they are normally placed well above the wheels eliminating wheel arches found in steel body trays.

Because they are higher, they provide great storage space underneath for extra fuel tanks, water, tools boxes and other gear, leaving a flatbed that can carry a wide variety of equipment and produce.

For longer loads a roof rack can be added or for heavy loads a hydraulic lift or Hi-ab crane can be installed. They also come with tipper or tilt options if required

  • Light weight

Made of high grade aluminium alloy aluminium ute trays are very strong, but very lightweight, so allow for a much greater total payload capacity and when empty, they allow for very economical driving conditions

  • Cabin choices

Modern utes come in a variety of cabin choices from two door single cabs with a bench or bucket seats, duel or double cabs with four doors and a shorter aluminium ute tray on the back so you still have room for up to five or six passengers and a fare sized tray on the back that can take all your gear.

With flexible designs to cater for individual needs and preferences you can have a ute that’s a practical work vehicle and then be used as a great recreational vehicle while not working with space to take all the big boys toys while camping or enjoying the great outdoors

  • Practicality

Whether you’re a tradesman, farmer or just want the extra deck space a ute fitted with aluminium ute trays is very practical and often required vehicle to get the job done

  • Safety

Adding lockable tool boxes either on top or under the aluminium ute trays allows you to carry expensive equipment in relative safety knowing your gear is always secure with the extra benefit of greater flexibility in your vehicle because of the large cargo space available.

Fitting a canopy can provide a more secure all-weather option if required, these can be made of fiberglass or aluminium with many options to choose from

When you need to replace steel for new aluminium ute trays, you will find a huge variety of designs available to suit every need from farm use to contractor and handymen models as well as special purpose and individual designs at a very reasonable price.
