ACME Production Services, the event and entertainment transport specialist, has added a further two Krone Dry Liner box trailers to their fleet which, says the company, will provide maximum load protection and secure carriage for their UK and European customers.
Now in its 25th year, working mainly for production, sound and lighting companies, ACME requires secure loading to safeguard against potential theft and damage during transit.
Director Lance Lovell said: “For 25 years we’ve been providing specialised transport and storage services to the event and entertainment industries; trucking everything from a single flight case, all the way up to a complete music tour production. Our trailers therefore, need to be built to the highest standard to ensure safe and secure transport. These Dry Liners from Krone are virtually impregnable and are internally equipped to suit our specific loading needs.”
To achieve the specification best suited to ACME, Krone’s sales team proposed a bespoke combination of design features including steel ‘container-type’ barn doors with flush fit and integrated double locking which is easily operated from underneath the doors. Drum brakes were also specified.
The body is constructed from galvanised steel cassette panels, including the front bulkhead, which has horizontal internal reinforcement and a 250mm fork lift protection strip. A modified keyhole garment system accepts universal loading beams - ideal for mixed loads - while the internal walls are reinforced with a 350mm kick-strip strip. Also, an impressive internal load height of 2.915m is achieved within the 4m limit.
“We’ve been with Krone since 2014” adds Lance, “and I can truly say it’s been 100% positive. The team understand our industry, talk our language and provide a professional service.”
ACME also provides a parcel delivery service along with a diverse range of specialist storage facilities, including large agricultural buildings, secure sea containers - 10ft to 40 ft - and local crews for loading and unloading services.
