FO­CUS ON PROD­UCTS

New Zealand LCV - - CONTENTS -

Our round-up of the lat­est new prod­ucts from the world of LCVS and SUVS.

UTE AC­CES­SORIES SPE­CIAL­IST BEAUT UTES HAS be­gun dis­tribut­ing a new in-ve­hi­cle stor­age sys­tem that is wa­ter­proof and can carry a one-tonne load.

De­signed and made in the USA, Decked is a truck cargo bed stor­age sys­tem which raises the sur­face of the ve­hi­cle’s deck to cre­ate se­cure space un­der­neath. It cre­ates ex­tra wa­ter­proof stor­age space for things like tools. The stor­age space keeps tools and equip­ment out of the way while at the same time, pro­tect­ing them from se­vere weather. The newly-raised deck space can still be used as a nor­mal truck bed and has a one-tonne load ca­pac­ity.

Decked has been mar­keted in Amer­ica for sev­eral years, but hasn’t been avail­able for mid-size utes like the Ford Ranger and Toy­ota Hilux.

The mid-sized ute mar­ket is grow­ing in Amer­ica and the Ranger is go­ing in there to chal­lenge the Chevro­let Colorado and Toy­ota Ta­coma.

When Decked units de­signed to fit mid-sized utes be­came avail­able, Beaut Utes took the op­por­tu­nity to in­tro­duce the prod­uct to New Zealand.

Beaut Utes says Decked dif­fers from other drawer sys­tems be­cause it is fully-wa­ter­proof and doesn’t need a cargo space canopy or hard lid to keep equip­ment out of the rain.

It’s other main dif­fer­ence is that up to one tonne cargo can be car­ried on top of it. Beaut Utes says Decked will carry the weight of a quad bike with ease.

It says Decked weighs less than 100kg, so it has min­i­mal im­pact on pay­load.

Decked has two mas­sive, se­cure, and weath­er­proof full cargo bed-length draw­ers for or­gan­is­ing and stor­ing.

Each drawer has a 90kg load thresh­old, and they have been de­signed to slide in and out ef­fort­lessly even when they’re loaded to full ca­pac­ity.

The draw­ers roll on four over-sized, sealed-bear­ing wheels rid­ing in ded­i­cated chan­nels.

Each drawer can be cus­tom­ized to ac­com­mo­date cus­tomers’ needs by adding trays and di­viders. Other ex­tras in­clude locks to se­cure ex­pen­sive tools and other es­sen­tials.

There are also Core Trax 1000 tie-downs to se­cure bulky loads to the deck, and mul­ti­ple trays and di­viders for full cus­tomi­sa­tion.

Beaut Utes will have Decked avail­able from mid-fe­bru­ary.

Us-de­vel­oped Decked stor­age sys­tem con­tains two draw­ers and is fully wa­ter­proof.

Up to one tonne of cargo can be loaded on to the Decked stor­age sys­tem.
