Why Custom Trailer Flooring?

Not all trailers are built equally; they are all used for different purposes so it is important to get the right flooring for why you are using it. There are military trailers, refrigeration trailers, horse trailers, utility trailers, platform trailers and more.

If you have a refrigeration trailer you will need flooring and a trailer body that is able to be insulated and keep a hold of the cold air so the items you are carrying do not spoil. It must meet the Thermal Resistance to protect the cargo from melting. To provide the room needed for foam insulation we would need to be sure to have empty spaces below and behind the aluminum flooring and walls.

The military supports and protects us so it is just natural for us to want to do the same, when supplying them with custom sized trailer flooring we want to be sure it is exactly the right fit no matter what size floor kit they need. With something this important you need to get it right the first time! Items like these, large projects that take time, money and effort, you want to know you are getting the best you can at a reasonable cost and done fast and efficiently. Trailer flooring isn’t something you want to just pick the cheapest off the shelf and hope for the best, with Road Load Tested customized trailer flooring you can be sure we will get the military trailers on their way with exactly what they need.

Why is it so important to have a good trailer floor for your horse trailer, why not just throw a slab of plywood on there and walk away? Because guys you could be doing serious damage to those beloved horses of yours, maybe they are showcase horses, race horses, or just part of your family, do you want to put them at risk? Maybe you have a trailer for more than one horse, I mean guys, horses are some very large animals, a few of them on some plywood driven from here and there, exposed to the elements… Image as you are driving one of the horses hoofs go right through the plywood, every bump or short stop you take, you are putting that horse’s life at risk, when all you needed was the right custom made trailer flooring.

And even utility trailer flooring, they may not be as life altering as other flooring may be; lots of us use personal utility trailers to move large items we purchase from the store to home. We use them when moving from one home to another; we use them to transport our outdoor toys like motorcycles, ATVs, snowmobiles and more from here to there. Bad flooring could be the cause of your cargo being ruined, bikes falling and getting locked under the floor as you drive, couches collapsing in the middle of the floor and being driven anywhere from a mile to more and that sofa will not look too pretty after the highway has had its way with it. Don’t even let me get started with platform trailers, we trust those with EVERYTHING! The biggest and widest, the heaviest and largest of items, going extremely long distances, without the right size flooring to every exact 1/4th inch we … READ MORE ...

Laminate Works, But Hardwood is Better

The debate has been raging for ages. Many people believe that a laminate floor is a better option than a hardwood floor. Others also known as “smart people” believe that a hardwood floor is a better option.

Laminate is an extremely versatile substance. People used it back in the 70’s as countertop coverings. It developed over the years in many forms. It can resemble stone, marble, tile, or more commonly, wood. This is the most common appearance of laminate today. The actual term laminate does not refer to the physical material that constitutes the majority of the paneling, only the protective top layer.

Advantages of laminate include durability, and ease of installation. Normal laminate planks are two to three times longer than their hardwood counterparts. This is because the synthetic material can be created at almost any size. Unlike authentic hardwood, there are no real size limitations. Another benefit of laminate surfacing is that it can be installed on concrete and other surfaces that are difficult for hardwood installation.

Hardwood floors are on the opposite end of the spectrum. They are not new. People have been using hardwood floors ever since they were able to erect wood cabins hundreds of years ago. It’s not easy to install either. Unless you have a high skill set, installing it on your own can be troublesome. Because they come from limited material (trees) they are more expensive than synthetic laminate. However, scarcity creates value. If you have real authentic hardwood floors in your house, its value will increase. This can’t be said for laminate.

Hardwood floors are also more aesthetically appealing. All other surfaces are imitations. Ultimately you can’t beat the real thing. There are many arguments that support installing laminate including ease of installation, and low price. However, the long term value of this shortcut pales in comparison to that of a hardwood floor.… READ MORE ...
