Sidewall Protection Standard sidewall protection is provided by either a 10.25” or 12” high corrugated galvanized, roll-formed steel scuffband that extends the full length of the sidewall. Additional methods of sidewall protection are available, and vary in types, materials, and heights.


Side Door Design Option Great Dane’s side door design delivers unparalleled performance. With the unique, low-profile blade lock closure, there are no protruding hinges or lock rods, protecting side doors from damage. The blade lock exerts constant pressure along the full height of the door’s frame.


Drop Frame Trailer Drop frame options are available for added cubic capacity or more inside height. Available in 10″-18″ drop depths, the drop frame trailer provides interior heights ranging from 118″ to 126″ in the drop area.


Maximum Interior Space For maximum cubic capacity, logistic posts are recessed at panel connection with smooth interior rivet heads for a true snag-free interior. Low-maintenance logistic posts and panels allow for quick and easy repair. Post spacing is available on 16″, 24″ and 50″ centers for flexible cargo securement.


Floor Strength A net 1.38″ laminated hardwood floor is secured with 2 screws in an alternating pattern, and is available with 3 screws for added strength. Floors are available in 20K, 22K, & 24K-pound-rated floor options for flexible load ratings.


Sidewall Protection A full-length, one-piece extruded aluminum bottom rail with integral scuffband design adds strength and rigidity and helps reduce sidewall bulging. An additional 6″ galvanized steel scuff is installed above the 5″ aluminum interior bottom rail to provide extra protection from forklift damage.


High-base Rail Option A high-base rail option is available for improved sidewall durability with 15″ of extreme sidewall protection. The integral extruded aluminum rail protects the lower wall against unsightly scarring of daily wear and tear.
