Clever crates

New Zealand Truck & Driver - - Truck Shop -

THROUGH CUS­TOM-MAK­ING new ex­tru­sions and cre­at­ing a flip-over cen­tre drain, Delta Stock Crates has de­vel­oped a cat­tle crate that boasts more than 120 mil­lime­tres of ex­tra in­ter­nal height. It can also con­vert from a two-deck into one deck to ac­com­mo­date big or over­sized cat­tle, all while main­tain­ing crate strength and re­duc­ing tare weight – an ob­vi­ous win/win for the in­dus­try.

Delta is New Zealand’s largest man­u­fac­turer of al­loy stock crates and says it’s the only stock crate man­u­fac­turer with full man­u­fac­tur­ing and ser­vic­ing fa­cil­i­ties in both the North Is­land (a pur­pose­built work­shop in Feild­ing)

from left to right): and the South Is­land (Ti­maru).

Its re­search and de­vel­op­ment team con­tin­u­ally looks to de­velop so­lu­tions to the in­dus­try’s ev­ere­volv­ing prob­lems such as the back-rub is­sue. In this case, the re­sult has it cus­tom-mak­ing new ex­tru­sions to max­imise heights through­out its crates – re­duc­ing the height of the cen­tre drain to gain more depth and of­fer­ing a flipover cen­tre drain to make sin­gle-decking large an­i­mals pos­si­ble. All these mea­sures com­bine to min­imise back-rub.

From full-size stock crates and truck decks to ute canopies and small crates, Delta has a huge “stan­dard” prod­uct range to choose from.

But it’s also quick to point out that “ev­ery crate we make is cus­tom-man­u­fac­tured to meet your spec­i­fi­ca­tions.” And that “to­gether we will work with you to meet your re­quire­ments.”

Delta has over two decades of ex­pe­ri­ence in the busi­ness and says it fo­cuses on de­liv­er­ing prod­ucts that com­bine the best bal­ance be­tween tare weight, strength and dura­bil­ity….at a com­pet­i­tive price.

The Road Trans­port Fo­rum mem­ber pro­vides two-year man­u­fac­turer’s war­ranties on all its crates as a guar­an­tee against prod­uct de­fects or faulty work­man­ship. And its new crates are AsureQual­ity cer­ti­fied.


The PSI au­to­matic tyre in­fla­tion sys­tem, of course, also “keeps all of your tyres, on any type of trailer, at the same pres­sure all of the time,” says TATES – “giv­ing you op­ti­mal tyre life and fuel econ­omy…..and it will save you on re­caps.”
