Fontaine International has updated its Application Guide, a 14-page resource to help customers choose the right fifth wheel for their applications. The Fontaine International Application Guide is designed to walk customers through the various top plates and mounting options available and provide recommended assemblies by application.
Applications covered include van trailers; tankers and bulk trailers; flatbeds, stretch and stake trailers; lowboy trailers; frame end dump trailers, bottom dump trailers and frameless end dump trailers. Color photos, product descriptions, selection suggestions and a chart of duty class restrictions also are included.
“Fontaine International offers a complete line of top plates and mounting options in a wide variety of sizes to handle even the most demanding applications,” says Terry Mennen, vice president of sales and marketing for the Irondale, Ala.-based company. “Our new Application Guide helps fleets specify the fifth wheels that will best meet their needs based on anticipated load capacity and service conditions. Of course, Fontaine sales and customer service representatives also are available to provide personal guidance and support as needed.”
The Fontaine International Application Guide is available for download at www.fifthwheel.com in the “View Literature” section under the “Products” tab; printed copies also are available. Call 800-874-9780 for more information.
