Retractable Load Support System    

The System is designed to support a load during transport on a flat bed trailer. It is engineered to allow merchandise to be transferred onto or off of the trailer without the need of pallets or 4 x 4


A series of beams, flip up, or other support devices are designed to raise up from the flat bed trailer. The flat bed trailer can be constructed with as many supports needed. Each support can be raised or lowered independently from the others. This allows multiple configurations on one trailer, easily adapting to any load. Upon demand, the driver can raise or lower the supports pneumatically, hydraulic, electronic, or manually.

Normally when a load is supplied with pallets, the driver can simply drive into the loading area and quickly get loaded. If a load of lumber, pipe, or other non-palletable goods are to be shipped, the driver must climb onto the flat bed trailer and install 4 x 4 pieces of lumber to support the load. The Retractable Load Support System eliminates this process. This allows goods to be loaded and unloaded more efficiently and safer.
