When it comes to improving the health and safety of transport operators, Vawdrey Australia believes it has the solution with its innovative Load Restrainer curtainsider system.

Paul Vawdrey, Sales Director of the Melbourne-based family company, says the Load Restrainer, with its system of reinforcing rods built into the curtains, eliminates a number of issues facing operators.

Long-time customer Linfox had secured the Coke contract, and approached Vawdrey to come up with a way of making it work.

While revamping the concept to work in Australia, Vawdrey says the company also reviewed the requirements of load restraint chain-of-responsibility legislation, to ensure it surpassed those needs.

"It is perfect for all non-cold route work, where the driver is constantly opening and closing the curtains, to access the load," he says.

While the Load Restrainer is drawing plenty of attention because of its key capabilities, Vawdrey says there is much more to it than meets the eye.

"It also features full-length fold out steps, offering all-weather workability, rather than a tiny ladder, making it much safer," he says.

Infringements for over-width loads are also eliminated, with the gates locked into the body both top and bottom, making it impossible for the load to protrude beyond the width of the cargo area.

"We put a lot of effort into this, from a safety perspective as well as meeting operational requirements, and we believe this has a big future," he says.

The Load Restrainer will be featured in the new Payload section to be unveiled in the March edition of ATN magazine. Call 1800 649 578 or email subs@pubserv.com.au for details.
