Diamond Roll Up Door, Inc. has received a purchase order to start providing aluminum shutter doors for basic utility bodies used on numerous different types of work trucks in the USA. The body manufacturer currently makes several different types of vehicle bodies out of aluminum. They are going to start manufacturing aluminum utility bodies and plan on using only aluminum shutter doors, no swing doors.
Aluminum shutter doors are used on nearly 80% of the compartments found on fire and emergency vehicles because the manufacturers have determined that it is less expensive, easier to manufacture, easier to access vehicle compartments, and most of all safer for the end user. With the work truck industry trying to reduce weights and make vehicles safer, the aluminum shutter doors make the most sense.
The work truck market dwarfs the fire and emergency market in the USA. Once the aluminum shutter doors prove themselves in the work truck market, the opportunities should be endless. Diamond’s Dover brand shutters are the leader in the USA work truck market and will prove to be a great all around solution for compartment access in the future.
