Fontaine Unveils New Trailer With Sliding Axels


Fontaine Trailer Company has unveiled a new trailer with independent sliding axels.  The new Infinity Superior Slide is a versatile platform trailer that can be “configured as a closed tandem set at the rear, a closed tandem set at the front, a full 10′ spread axle and any combination in between,” a Fontaine press release stated.

“Fontaine Trailer Dealers deserve much of the credit for this new product launch,” remarked Alan Briley, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing. “They told us that fleets are reporting that several states are beginning to enforce kingpin-to-axle regulations, and that drivers need an easy way to stay in compliance… especially since these regulations vary from state to state, making it even more difficult for drivers to stay in compliance. The Fontaine Infinity Superior Slide is the solution. It gives drivers the ability to change axle settings quickly and easily to accommodate various state regulations, and to keep their equipment rolling no matter where they go. It’s perfect for leasing and rental operations where ‘you never know’ where the trailer might end up running,” he concluded.

The trailer is constructed with fabricated steel mainbeams and steel crossbracing, an aluminum floor and rear skirt.  It also featured Fontaine’s RASR routed aluminum side rail, creating a durable trailer. Fontaine says the trailer “delivers the perfect balance of strength, weight and economy.”

Fontaine believes the Infinity trailer is the “strongest in the industry” and backs that claim up in with the XtremeBeamTM Lifetime Warranty.
