Dorset Windows Ltd
Renault Master 3.5t platform cab with light weight GRP ‘Easy Mover’ Luton complete with internal racking.
Our customer supplies very large glazed window frames and doors that can be heavy as well as very vulnerable whilst being transported. Historically window installers have used standard long wheelbase panel vans with external ‘frails’ to move these big items and this has never been the ideal solution. Having seen our light weight but high volume ‘Easy Mover’ conversions our customer was very keen to explore what we could do to help him achieve a safer solution to move these delicate and very expensive items and at the same time look an organised professional outfit when turning up at their customers address.
During a meeting with the customer and a member of his installation team we highlighted the dimensions and weights of the products being moved, the additional capping’s and trims needed and also the tools the workmen use on a daily basis when installing. After a series of CAD drawings were produced, a concept for a 5 meter interior length ‘Easy Mover’ GRP Luton complete with internal glass ‘frails’ to each side, trim trays, tool chest, ladder racks and sand/cement bins were signed off by the customer. The body was also fitted with LED strip lights to illuminate the interior load space and a reversing camera to help manoeuvre the vehicle safely. On completion the vehicle including the cab was prepared and painted in their corporate colour and then sign written with this stunning design.
