Being part of the transportation industry means putting safety above all else. It is the equipment manufacturer’s job when designing trucks and trailers to minimize the potential for serious consequences to both the truck and the other vehicles on the road in the event of a crash.

With that in mind, many trailer manufacturers have recently decided to strengthen the designs of their rear underride guards. The newer designs are built to stop an automobile from sliding under the trailer in the event of a rear-impact crash. They are also built to cater to fleet interests avoiding adding weight to the trailers.
