The Composite® is constructed with durable composite plate sidewalls and steel logistic slotted stiffeners. No single sidewall material can be lightweight while providing the same amount of strength. For maximum ease-of-repair, the HT Composite® sidewall design allows for simple and rapid individual side panel replacement without having to remove the stiffeners, resulting in less downtime and increased utilization. In addition, the sidewall panels are fully recyclable.


  • Bottom rail and extended scuff both have interior and exterior ribs to provide protection to fasteners while adding strength and rigidity
  • HT Corrosion Resistance Packing includes HOT-DIP GALVANIZED steel rear frame, rear impact guard, landing gear mounting brackets and bracing, license mounting plate and mid turn signal bracket for extended service life and superior appearance
  • Composite panels are interchangeable with Aluminum panels for greater repair flexibility
  • Front wall posts reinforced with special angle clips and welded to the upper coupler for maximum strength
