System 144 - provides maximum flexibility.
Up to date, System 144 is ExTe’s most sold and appreciated timber bunk. This sturdy, robust, yet light weight system has throughout the years proven its high quality. The system is also flexible and easy to move from an old trailer/lorry to a new when it’s time to change vehicle.
These facts have made System 144 very popular amongst truckers worldwide.
System 144 is in steel and contains a product mix suited to hauliers that not only transport round timber.
With frames and sockets folded onto the platform, it is quick and easy to reconfigure the unit for other types of goods. System 144 is the optimal solution for many types of applications and is much appreciated by our customers.
The interaction between the stakes, frame and attachments, provides shock absorption should clumsy handling occur during loading and unloading.
Frame 144 is primarily designed for heavy-duty round timber transportation, while with frame 144-S, the stakes lean in less and the stake tops are wider apart. This is beneficial with more stable loads such as sawn timber.
System 144 is manufactured using high strength steel that makes the design able to withstand rough handling under a long life span.
For the design that includes telescoping stakes, the tops are produced using aluminum. The interactions between stakes, bolsters and the attachments gives the designs a needed lateral and longitudinal suspension. A suspension that’s crucial during harsh treatments at loading and unloading.
Flatbed sockets increases opportunities.
Also the flatbed sockets are manufactured in high quality steel that has been heat treated and are well suited for welding applications without demands for pre-heating. These sockets are mainly applied on flatbed trucks used in mixed cargo transport.
Flexible locking of stakes.
Most common is that stakes are mounted and secured onto bolster with a quicklock system. This to facilitate a quick and smooth relocation of stakes when needed. The design of the lock-system is based on the tensioning eccentric principle. The quicklock system is designed to fit all of ExTe’s bolsters and sockets. Besides this system, the stakes can be secured by bolts. The latter is
suitable in applications where the stakes do not need to be moved very frequently.
Quick-acting locks allow quick and easy repositioning of the stakes. The locking mechanism is based on the eccentric cam principle. For safety reasons, use a QL key of the lock force type.
Load capacity: 7 tonnes
Weight (frame): from 85 kg ( 2,500 mm width)
The attachments are in steel. The platform sockets are heat treated and very suitable for welding, with no need for preheating. The sockets are usually attached to the platform, which is intended for a variety of goods.
The lower sections of the telescopic stakes as well as the euro stakes are powder coated. The upper sections of the telescopic stakes in aluminium are anodised.
Frames 144 and 144-S can be fitted with extra stake sockets that are folded into the frames. Frames with mid sockets are standard equipment.
The bolster is produced using high strength steel. The difference between the two systems is that 144-S allows for lesser inward angle (89.2°) of the stakes resulting in a greater width between stake tops. One advantage of this is that it is easier to load for instance bundles of sawd lumber or cargo on pallets. The standard 144 bolster allows the stakes to have a greater inwards angle (88.5°) of the stakes, something that make this system very suited for the transport of round-wood. Based on each customers demand, the bolsters can be equipped with additional sockets incorporated inside the bolster (for instance in the middle). Any of the two bolster designs can be used as an integrated and structural part of a trailer or lorry flatbed.
Flatbed Sockets - The weight of the flatbed socket is 7.1 kg and is heat treated thus suitable
for attachment to flatbed frames by welding. These sockets are usually mounted on trailers and lorries that are used for the transportation of mixed cargo. If the cargo mainly is expected to comprise of round-wood, it is recommended that the sockets are mounted in such a way that the
stakes lean inwards by 1.5°. This so that the loading gauge will not be exceeded while the bunk is fully loaded. When the socket is attached by welding, it is important that the welds and chassis frame can withstand a force of 6 (six) ton-meter. It is important to determine if a chassis frame has to be reinforced or strengthened ahead of any attachment of the socket. This responsibility lies on the contractor/investor that insures that welds and surrounding frame areas fulfills strength criteria’s.
Mounting of the stakes - The stakes can be mounted either by bolts or by the quick lock system. Both alternatives fits all bolsters and sockets.
Mounting by bolts is recommended when it is anticipated that the stakes will not be relocated frequently. The bolting package consists of high strength bolts and nuts plus spring-suspending
washers. The purpose of the latter is to allow for some elasticy in the joint and to keep the right torch, something that increase the life-length of the entire system. The quicklock system offers the possibility for very quick and smooth relocation of stakes.
The stakes are locked and secured by the use of a special wrench. The locking mechanism is based on the tensioning eccentric principle where a compressed, or released, spring makes the difference between locked and unlocked.
Bolster 144 is primarily designed for demanding transport of round-wood.
System 144 includes a number of alternative designs that offers truckers flexibility to transport other commodities besides round-wood. With sockets, bolsters and stakes integrated in the trailer bed, the trailer or lorry can easily be converted for other cargo than round-wood.
