SA Trailers offers 3 different trailer finishes:
1. Trailer Paint
SA Trailers offers a wide range of hammertone colour choices to suit most applications.
All trailers are undercoated with 2 layers of etch primer followed by 2-3 layers of top coat depending on paint thickness.
All joins between the chassis and body are cold galved to reduce rust over time.
We offer a base colour range but and can order in colours to suit.
Note: Custom colours and paint match can be organised at an additional price.
2. Hot Dipped Galvanised Trailers
Hot dipped galvanised trailers are made using Australian mild steel and then dipped into a tank of hot galvanised liquid.
This process covers the steel inside and out to protect it from rusting as quickly over time.
This is done in tanks of extreme heat and can cause warping in the thin trailer floor.
For this reason, we add more welds and use thicker materials when hot dipping trailers.
NOTE: Hot dip galvanising is subject to availability.
Cold Galvanised Trailers
Cold galv trailers are made using pre-galvanised materials.
When you weld these pre-galved materials, the heat from the welder caused the galv coating to burn away.
For this reason, we cold galv spray all welds after fabrication to prevent rusting over time.
This process is generally cheaper than hot dip galvanising but not as aesthetically pleasing.
(You can often see the cold galvanising spray).
These trailers are also made using flat sheet steel as there is no pre-galvanised checkerplate
available for purchase due to the warping caused by the heat in the hot dipping process.
