SDC Trailers

Step Frame Platform

SDC’s Step Frame Platform is designed with a lower bed height ensuring it can transport high loads. The lower bed length also reduces the centre of gravity, therefore, increasing stability. For European operations where there are height restrictions, the step frame platform is ideal to transport the load and meet height restrictions. SDC's Step Frame Platform is well known for its strong design and longevity.

Benefits of SDC's Step-frame platform:

  • Low loading height
  • Highly durable for a long trailer lifespan
  • Low maintenance and repair costs
  • High residual value
