Nomenclature & Styles of Superstructures
 
       

 
Platform size is always measured on the platform, exclusive of superstructure protrusions. Be sure to allow extra clearance for external pipe sockets, push handles, etc.; length or width including all protrusions is overall length or overall width.  
     

STYLES OF SUPERSTRUCTURES


For carrying certain materials, standard flat trucks are often made safer, more convenient, and more efficient by changing or adding handles or racks (superstructures).
 

Not every platform truck listed in the following pages can be furnished in every style. See the individual product web pages for listing of alternate styles available, if any.
 

When adding to superstructure, remember to allow clearance for increases in overall length or width caused by external pipe sockets, offset handles or racks, etc. Of course, styles of superstructures other than those shown here are also available for special purchase (consult factory for details).
