SDC recently announced that it now offers EN 12642 XL certification as standard on its Freespan and Insuliner Curtainsider trailers. EN 12642 XL is a certification from the DVSA that, although not legally required, “provides part of the load-securing system and certifies that quality standards are met,” SDC explains. The company relies on TUV_NORD, a third-party body assessment specialist, to ensure its trailers meet “the safety and technical parameters required to secure a load for transport.”

Certification for Insuliner Curtainsider trailers is available payloads of up to 29,000 kilograms (63,934 pounds). SDC also offers the certification on select step frame double-deck trailers, straight-frame curtain siders, box trailers, and many others.

Added Peace Of Mind

“In response to market demand we are pleased to offer the EN - XL option to our customers providing an extra quality guarantee on our Freespan and Insuliner curtain siders. Each trailer passed a series of rigorous tests, fully loaded, to simulate emergency manoeuvres in cornering and braking,” says Jimmy Dorrian, CTO of SDC. “While EN-XL provides extra assurances for load security, SDC also offer a wide range of load restraint options for compliance when cargo does not meet the positive fit guidelines.”
