New Ingimex dropside meets new standards.

Ingimex has launched the third version of its one stop dropside.  The new model could be the first European light truck dropside to be designed and tested to meet the requirements of EN12642, EN12640 and DIN75410 standards.  These govern the structural strength of the body and its ability to retain loads.  "These standards are quoted on some CV components, but we suspect that we are the first to have tested the complete body structure and load restraint points as a final assembly," said Jeremy Gallen, engineering director.  Incorporating these standards early in the design phase meant a very modest cost increase but "during testing, we discovered that our design exceeded the requirements of the "XL" rating in EN12642 at 4.6T GVW".
