1-13. LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION OF MAJOR COMPONENTS.
Flatrack. The flatrack (1) is a welded frame and
wall forming a cargo carrier used with the truck.
Wall and Hookbar. The wall (2) of the flatrack
is used as a lifting point for the flatrack. The wall
has a hookbar (3) which couples with the LHS
hook arm to lift and pull the flatrack onto the
Rails. The flatrack rails (4) have locking plates
that mate with plates on the truck and trailer to
secure the flatrack for road operations.
ISO Locks/Fittings. Corner ISO locks/fittings
(5) have the same dimensions as a 20 ft (6.10 m)
ISO container. This allows the flatrack to be
secured on any equipment capable of locking down
a 20 ft (6.10 m) ISO container, including ships and
Stowage Boxes. Two stowage boxes (6) are
sized to allow storage of tiedown straps and other
items. The stowage box covers are hinged and
have provisions for locking.
Rollers. Removable rollers (7) are used for loading/unloading flatrack onto the trailer or docks.
g. Lifting Rings and Straps. Lifting rings (8) and straps are provided to secure payloads or to secure flatrack
for modes of shipping when flatrack is not on truck or trailer.
