Air operated tail doors
Our air operated tail doors are more secure than the traditional types which only have one single ram to lock and unlock the tail door. Unlike other air tail doors on the market our tail doors clamp shut if air is lost to the tail door so your load has no chance of espcaping and causing danger if that problem did arise. Ramp clamps can be fitted to ensure the door is fully fastened.

There are two options when choosing an air operated tail door.

The second option is having an air operated split tail door. As well as being able to lock and unlock this door there will be an added function of being able to open and close the bottom section of the tail door with the use of a second switch from the control panel in the cab.
Our air operated doors generally lean in 8″ from top to bottom on the back pillar but this measurement can be tailored to suit your needs.
