STRONG, LIGHTWEIGHT COMBI-BUNKS THAT MAKE THE MOST OF THE STEEL’S GREATEST ASSETS
THE D-SERIES. OPTIMISED STEEL AND ALUMINIUM TIMBER BUNKS.
The boundaries of what is possible are constantly being moved. The evolution of steelworks means that new, high-strength steels with unique properties have been created. And this is laying the foundations for ExTe’s (D)Evolution, where conditions are making the impossible possible. That’s why we have been able to develop the D-Series, which are now the strongest and lightest combi-bunks ever. With bolsters made of the new high strength steels and aluminium stanchions (with the exception of DS), we have developed products that contribute both to increased road safety and to simpler and more profitable timber transport for hauliers.
The D-Series is a series of combi-bunks that are 15% lighter than the predecessor E-Series.
The D-bunks are available in the following performance stages:
D5 - maximum load per bunk: 5 tonnes
D7 - maximum load per bunk: 7 tonnes
D10 - maximum load per bunk: 10 tonnes
D12 - maximum load per bunk: 12 tonnes
DS5 - maximum load per bunk: 5 tonnes
DS7 - maximum load per bunk: 7 tonnes
Unique and patented combi-mount.
Our newly designed mount is a combination of the friction and clamp fastening techniques. The combi-mount is unique and has been fitted with a lock which means that drilling in the bolster is no longer necessary. For each timber bunk, the upper bracket and mounting plate have been optimised for maximum weight-saving.
Timber bunks prepared for tensioners.
The ExTe TU and the Luftman tensioner are installed with a smart fastening under the bolster on the timber bunk. The fastening is mounted in the bolster’s pre-drilled holes.
It is convenient to mount accessories on the bolster, such as lighting. We have therefore prepared the bolster for various options.
The practical and specially developed bolster brackets are flexible, in order to be used for various applications. There is an individual bolster bracket for each bunk bolster.
Single or double release mechanisms
The manual release is screwed onto the bolster with a single fastening or, if two release mechanisms are required, with double fastenings.
Simple disengaging with accessories adapted for D-Series timber bunks
The easily accessible location of the release lever means that manual disengaging of the tensioner can be performed quickly and easily.
Timber bunks with automatic release mechanisms mounted directly on the timber bunk
The automatic pneumatic release for the ExTe TU and the Luftman tensioner is also mounted in an easily accessible location directly on the bolster.
D-SERIES’ NEW STANCHIONS
New stanchions have been developed for the D-Series.
The design is both lighter and stronger. The same stanchions now fit both the A- and D-series. This also applies to Telescopic stanchions.
The stanchions are available for various load heights, and the stanchions for the older A-Series will remain available as spare parts.
- Telescopic: Stanchions with a freely adjustable upper part
- Conical-Out: Stanchions that are bevelled from the inside out
- Conical-In: Stanchions that are bevelled from the outside in
- Euro: Full profile without telescopic function or bevelling
Extensive range of accessories
The pre-drilled bolsters enable easy installation of several specially-designed accessories that make the driver’s job safer and less strenuous. All of ExTe’s accessories are carefully designed and tested to work safely and efficiently with the bunk.
