Lightweight Side Wall Design

A new lightweight side wall design from Supreme Industries will allow fleet operators and other delivery truck owners to increase their payload capacity, decreasing their overall operating costs per load. FiberPanel HC, the truck body side wall design exclusive to Supreme Industries, is now available on Supreme’s Van Body or Inner-City truck bodies.

Built with a durable, fiberglass-reinforced, gel-coated honeycomb side wall material, the exclusive FiberPanel HC side wall reduces the overall weight of the truck body to increase payload capacity and possibly fuel efficiency. A 14-foot Supreme SIGNATURE Van Body with FiberPanel HC side walls with a composite rear roll-up door weighs 288 pounds less than a comparable size truck built with standard fiberglass-reinforced plywood side wall materials.

In developing the FiberPanel HC design, Supreme Industries built upon technology used by the aerospace and automotive industries. In addition, the polypropylene core does not absorb moisture, keeping the side walls safe from water damage, allowing for an extended life compared to traditional side wall materials. And, because it provides a rivet-less external surface, the outer side wall surface remains completely smooth, so the truck owner’s branding stands out. www.supremecorp.com
