Wabash is the one name you’ll see more than any other rolling down America’s highways, and one you'll see often in TEC Equipment's yards. As the industry leader in dry freight vans, they provide a solution to fit your needs, whether you require the unmatched performance of their DuraPlate® composite plate vans or the economical dependability of their sheet and post vans.
Providing a low total cost of ownership, Wabash DuraPlate trailers are standard equipment in North America's largest fleets. Lightweight, extremely durable, and long-lasting, DuraPlate trailers keep you on the road mile after mile, year after year.
DuraPlate composite sidewall panels are constructed of a high-density polyethylene (HDPE) core bonded between two high-strength steel skins to provide unmatched damage resistance and maximum interior width. They are the only composite plate sidewall panels made in the U.S.A., so you can rely on the quality and performance. Wabash stands behind their product – DuraPlate sidewalls are backed by a 10-year limited warranty.
Introduced in 2003, the DuraPlate HD® provides best-in-class strength and durability. The high-strength aluminum base plate in the lower sidewall withstands the most abusive freight hauls and resists damage from exterior sideswipes. This model is ideally suited for both general freight and heavy-haul freight such as paper, automotive parts and carpet.
Innovation and performance reached new levels in 2011, with the arrival of the DuraPlate XD-35®. Specifically designed to haul extreme duty freight such as steel coils, paper rolls and large specialized equipment, the DuraPlate XD-35 takes many products previously hauled on a flatbed and puts them safely inside a dry van.
The DuraPlate XD-35 is the only dry van with a 35,000 lb. floor rating. When combined with heavy-duty sidewall and floor load securement options, this trailer increases cargo flexibility allowing you to access new shippers and freight hauls.
Wabash sheet and post dry vans deliver quality and value for fleets that require performance day in and day out. Available with plywood or plastic interior liners and a number of logistics options, sheet and post vans provide versatility for a wide range of freight hauls.
