Alltruck, the UK commercial vehicle contract hire specialist, has supplied a specially modified DAF CF 260 to CN Glass for distribution of its diverse range of glass and related products.
From its production facility in Banbury, CN Glass cuts, toughens and process glass, supplying most types of windows, doors, double glazing, conservatories, and custom glass for a wide range of applications in the commercial and residential sectors.
With a history spanning 50 years, the company is seen as the foremost supplier and installer of superior glass products in Oxfordshire.
“We have an extensive delivery fleet with a number of vehicles specially adapted for the safe and secure transport of glass products,” says CN Glass. “The new vehicle from Alltruck is no exception, and was specified with a number of bespoke features, designed for the task.”
External glass sheet racking is fitted within the truck’s curtain sides – which can be tensioned and opened from either end, to give 85% access across the body length, larger items can be loaded through a sliding roof.
The 18-tonne DAF chassis is fitted with adjustable electronically controlled rear air suspension, to ensure a fully shock-absorbent ride.
“The truck specification exactly matches our particular transport needs,” adds CN Glass. “We were looking for a company who could match our quality of service with the ability to supply a combination of quality equipment and dedicated aftercare. We found this, and more, in Alltruck. They are certainly the best in the business when it comes to glass carriers.”
Formed in 1990, Alltruck plc offers an extensive choice of commercial vehicles for rental, contract hire, and sale, comprising tractor units, trailers, vans and rigid vehicles. Depots are strategically located in Nottingham, Leicester and Loughborough. Repairs, builds, maintenance, and MOTs are carried out from the company’s own workshop & bodyshop. They also run a fleet of mobile technicians for any customers who require that extra convenience.
CN Glass is accredited with British Standard, BS EN1279 Part 2 & Part 3 for the manufacture of double-glazed units.
