REVOLUTION ALUMINUM

All aluminum construction, StirLITE floor, RASR siderail… This trailer is built like no other!

NEW REVOLUTION TRIDEM

Gives you a hauling versatility at the touch of a button. Features a rear lift axle to make the trailer California legal. The center lift axle gives you a 122 Inch spread axle configuration to handle the maximum load for this trailer with ease.

StirLITE ALUMINUM FLOOR

The patented floor design is made possible by proven technology borrowed from the aerospace industry–StirLITE friction stir welding.

BYE, NORMAL CROSSMEMBERS

The supports are built into the StirLITE floor and joined together by friction stir welding. This unitized floor design means more strength at less weight.

STRONGER THAN TRADITIONAL

The Fontaine RASR routed aluminum siderail is 12x stronger than the competition with more load securement options. Plus, it’s DOT rated the full length making load securement much easier.

DETAILS MAKE THE DIFFERENCE

Recessed siderail face protects conspicuity tape for better visibility, longer life, reduced maintenance cost and keeps you DOT compliant.

TWICE THE CONVENIENCE

Sliding winch track on both sides of trailer for driver convenience and easier, quicker load securement.

CONVENIENCE

The rope hooks can also be positioned to hold the winch pawl upright so that the winch can “free spool”. This makes it easier to pull more strap from the opposite side of the trailer.

TURTLE POWER

Sliding chain tie-downs (turtles) are EASY to use and STRONG (5500 Lbs working load limit). You can position them with ease. They stow in a optional tool box rack when not in use.

EASY COMPLIANCE

The wiring harness runs down the center of the trailer totally protected by an aluminum cover plate. This virtually eliminates DOT inspection issues from weather related damage or road debris.

INFINITY COMBO

The Infinity steel/aluminum combo with the patented RASR siderail gives you everything you want in a flatbed … and more!

STRONGER THAN TRADITIONAL

The Fontaine Trailer RASR routed aluminum siderail is 12x stronger than the competition with more load securement options. Plus, it’s DOT rated the full length making load securement much easier.

END THE FRUSTRATION

“Driver-friendly” sliding rope hooks also serve as strap retainer clips that eliminate hassle and reduce securement time.

TWICE THE CONVENIENCE

Sliding winch track on both sides of the trailer for driver convenience and easier, quicker load securement.

CONVENIENCE

The rope hooks can also be positioned to hold the winch pawl upright so that the winch can “free spool”. This makes it easier to pull more strap from the opposite side of the trailer.

STRONGER BY DESIGN

Upper coupler is steel reinforced above the kingpin and at the mainbeams for added strength and durability.

BUILT ON SOLID FOUNDATION

Built tough, the Infinity features 4 Inch I-beams on 12 Inch centers, one piece knee braces, RASR rail, and XtremeBeam mainbeams. Constructed with continuous welds on both sides of the upper and lower flange using Grade 130K load bearing material.

SUPERIOR TWIST LOCK DESIGN

Competitors put their twist locks flush with the outside of the rail (right). Fontaine offsets theirs behind the siderail so that they are protected from forklifts and other impacts (left).

BEST IN CLASS PAINT

The Fontaine Trailer 4 step paint process ensures that each trailer that’s built receives consistent, high quality, and effective paint coverage on all exposed steel parts. Before the floor is installed, the entire trailer is sand-blasted, then a 2-part PPG wet-on-wet primer is used. The paint process and coverage thickness is recorded to maintain consistency.

MATCHED TO THE JOB

Choose from Flat bed or Drop deck, Slide axle or fixed, Tandem or Tridem, TX models for hauling containers or frac sand; Lengths of 45, 48 or 53 feet. You also have your choice of  models with ratings of 52 or 55 thousand Lbs concentrated load in 4 feet and 80,000 Lbs distributed.

VELOCITY STEEL

Fontaine Velocity gives you more for your money. The best steel trailer on the road.

BUILT ON A SOLID FOUNDATION

Built tough, the Velocity flatbed and drop deck trailers feature 4 Inch I-beams on 12 Inch centers, one piece welded knee braces, and legendary Fontaine XtremeBeam mainbeams. Constructed with continuous welds on both sides of the upper and lower flange using Grade 130K load bearing material.

STRONGER BY DESIGN

The upper coupler is subjected to a tremendous amount of stress. It’s the connecting point between the tractor and the trailer. That’s why Fontaine Trailer welds steel reinforcement above the kingpin and at the mainbeams. This robust design provides for added strength to give the customer greater durability.

PROTECTED

Individual air and electrical lines run down the center of both flatbed and drop deck trailers for easy identification, quicker repairs and protection from tire spray and road debris. Wires pass through rubber grommets to protect the cover at friction points.

STRONGER FRONT SKIRT

The trailer steel front skirt features tapered steel corners for greater durability. A steel reinforced upper coupler plate minimizes distortion and makes coupling easier.

ENDURANCE

Full length 1-1/8 Inch apitong trailer flooring withstands harsh weather and punishing applications. The robust floor is supported by the Fontaine XtremeBeam and steel I-Beam crossmembers on 12 Inch centers to handle heavy-duty loading and unloading.

PERFECT BALANCE

Changing axle positions on slider models is fast and easy to give you the ultimate in flexibility and convenience. You can balance your load for better performance while meeting the demands of USA and Canadian regulations.

GREATER HAULING VERSATILITY

The VelocityTX model is equipped with Twist Locks that can be set up to engage typical cargo containers or frac sand containers. So, you can haul containers or conventional drop deck loads with the same trailer.

SUPERIOR TWIST LOCK DESIGN

Competitors put their drop deck trailer twist locks flush with the outside of the rail (right). Fontaine Trailer offsets theirs behind the siderail so that they are protected from forklifts and other impacts (left).

DETAILS MAKE THE DIFFERENCE

Great care is taken when coating every part of Infinity flat and drop trailers with top-of-the-line primer and paint to stand up to the harshest conditions on the road. The paint process gives you the best corrosion protection in the industry.
