Custom Aluminuim Trays & Canopies FAQ

1. What are trays?

Custom aluminium trays are designed to increase the load area of your vehicle, helping to transport a wide range of items. Thanks to drop-down tailgates and sides, you’ll also find it much easier to both unload and load your vehicle.

If you’ve got heavy and bulky items to haul, it’s important to have multiple locations where you can strap them in, and custom trays offer this option. Not only does an aluminium tray make better use of your vehicle space, but it also enhances safety while transporting goods and increases the functionality of your vehicle.

2. What are canopies?

A canopy is a structure, usually made from aluminium, that covers the bed of a truck or trailer. Doubling the versatility of a trailer, you can add a touch of style to your vehicle with a canopy. However, many vehicle owners actually use canopies to increase the security of their loads and protect their vehicles from harsh weather conditions.

3. Why get a custom aluminium tray or canopy?

Customise your aluminium tray or canopy today to increase load capacity and to add protection to your vehicle.

Not only is it easy to install and maintain, but with a custom aluminium tray, you can secure your tools and items. Whether you’re an electrician, plumber, builder, or in another manual profession, a vehicle that has ample tray space offers a range of advantages – from increased practicality to more storage and cabin capacity.

With a custom canopy, on the other hand, your vehicle will be better protected against vandalism and theft and you’ll have protection against harsh chemicals and bad weather. As well as providing some much-needed shade, custom canopies are available for almost any type of vehicle.
