Get a tough deck on the back of your ute

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - PRODUCT WATCH -

With more util­ity ve­hi­cles go­ing onto New Zealand roads than ever be­fore, the chal­lenge is to se­lect the deck that is best suited to the user's re­quire­ments. But with so many op­tions avail­able, there is a dan­ger that trades­peo­ple, farm­ers and oth­ers may end up com­pro­mis­ing the ca­pa­bil­ity of their work ve­hi­cle.

“In the past, the pref­er­ence by ute own­ers has been for tra­di­tional steel decks be­cause they are per­ceived to be very strong – and in­deed the steel deck we sup­ply is one of the mar­ket lead­ers in this re­spect,” says John Frear of Best Bars.

“But most people over­look the fact that the lat­est al­loy decks are de­signed and built strong enough to with­stand the tough ev­ery­day us­age it is likely to be sub­jected to around con­struc­tion and other work sites. And due to their light weight they can carry heav­ier loads.”

Best Bars has de­signed a range of al­loy decks that suit most one-tonne ute mod­els and vari­ants sold by leading ve­hi­cle man­u­fac­tur­ers in New Zealand, from sin­gle cab mod­els, to crew cabs and dou­ble cabs.

The al­loy decks are tough and thanks to their durable, an­odised fin­ish, they won't cor­rode, so will keep their looks for much longer. But the main ad­van­tage is their abil­ity to haul ex­tra loads.
