EASIER, SAFER LOADING & HAULING WITH THE TRI-GATE™

HAUL MORE

The Comtruk© Tri-Gate™ bed fitted to a chassis cab cutaway can haul heavy loads, while staying nimble to navigate urban centers and parking lots.

 

Drop-sides allow for loading and unloading of freight from the curb side. The sides easily open by lifting lever handles at each end, and they can be removed in seconds to convert to a flatbed, accommodating larger cargo. Additionally, the drop-sides can be lowered to 90⁰ or 180⁰. When locked in at 90⁰, to the bed doubles as a mobile work center. Just bolt on a saw and get to work.

 

Comtruk offers more usable space than a rigid pickup bed and more flexibility than the typical flatbed. Get complete control over how and where to strap down a load with heavy duty t-slots and uni-strut channels in the top side and underside of the bed floor, inside each of the four sides, and the inside and outside of the rack bars.

 

The channels make it easy to customize the Tri-Gate bed for all sorts of businesses, because they accept most brands of accessories. Configure the Tri-Gate to carry ladders, water tanks, timber, tools, and so much more.

 

The front end of the Tri-Gate bed features an alloy rack bar that extends above the cabin roof, suitable to sit loads against or tie loads on top. Like the bed itself, the rack bar also features uni-strut channels along the inside and outside of the rack bar that allow you to customize the location of eye-bolts or other load management fixings.

PROVEN STRONG

Tested on the road and on the work site, Comtruk Tri-Gate has what it takes to get the job done.

 

Constructed from 6000 series aluminum alloy extrusions, durable aluminum die cast, and automotive grade plastic moldings, the Tri-Gate is strong and durable, yet light in weight, and resistant to corrosion.

 

Engineered, tested, and validated to meet global automotive standards, the drop-side flatbed performed beautifully in accelerated tests simulating more than 1,200 miles of extreme off-road conditions and 59,ooo miles of normal driving conditions.

FOCUS ON SAFETY

Increase safety and reduce the risk of loading-related injuries with the people-friendly aspects of Comtruk’s Tri-Gate commercial bed. Smart features like easy access, ergonomic gate handles, integrated safety steps, and step-up assist handles, let workers do more with less effort and less risk.

 

The Comtruk Tri-Gate’s side and tailgates fold down to give better access to the bed floor, making loading and unloading safer. Adjustable t-slot tie-down points and uni-strut channels inside the bed allow for more safely secured loads. Rubber floor strips reduce sliding, regardless of cargo size or shape.

 

Making access on top of the bed easy, Comtruk Tri-Gates feature a fold-out side step attached to the inside of the drop side gate, which, when unfolded with the gate down, provides a mid-height step up to the bed floor. Railings along the side skirts of the bed also provide a foot hold when the gates are up to help access tall loads or items racked above the cabin roof.

 

Optional rear sensors and reverse cameras, and Comtruk’s EZ Lift-N Load™ side lifter, further reduce risk. Additionally, the front rack’s inside channel can hold stainless steel mesh, creating a safety barrier for the driver.

PROMOTE YOUR BRAND

Commercial pickups need to work hard, but they also need to promote the company’s brand. With aerodynamic lines, the Comtruk Tri-Gate accepts vinyl wraps and signage, and can do some heavy lifting company promotion.

 

Our bed features integrated tail lamps, neatly styled within the rear end panel, and reversing and turn signal lamps that comply with US federal regulations. The central license plate surround has built-in illumination and accepts wiring for reversing cameras and reverse parking sensors. Plastic wheel arch moldings cover the dual rear wheels, containing water spray from tires. Light and tough, the wheel arches further integrate the Tri-Gate with the chassis cab’s design.

 

The Comtruk Tri-Gate comes in silver or black hammertone powder coat finishes that are durable and great looking, framed by low gloss textured black plastics. The inside floor is raw aluminum.
