Using decking to safely stack two levels of palletized freight in a single trailer can double cargo capacity. However, some captive decking systems can get in the way of larger cargo or risk forklift damage during loading and unloading.

Kinedyne’s new extended clearance head design for the K2 Kaptive Beam decking system moves logistic beams 2.46 inches higher in the trailer, providing more clearance for forklifts and freight, company officials said in a press release.

“The design creates up to 3% more free space at the top of the trailer when the beam is stored — maximizing the available cubic space when decking is not required,” says Jason Lueck, Kinedyne’s engineering manager.

The new extended clearance head assembly is made from anodized high-strength aluminum. It moves within Kinedyne’s vertical track to position and securely lock the beams wherever they are needed for decking or shoring. The K2 Kaptive Beam aluminum track weighs 25% less than Kinedyne’s K1 Kaptive Beam track and can also be recessed to maximize trailer interior width. This is ideal for customers where weight savings, fuel economy and maximum cargo capacity are the priorities, company officials said.

The new extended clearance head is compatible with existing K2 Kaptive Beam systems.
