Lightweight aluminium carries the load

Recognising that, in the transport industry, any reduction in vehicle weight can allow the payload to be increased, Hydro Aluminium has developed an aluminium flooring system.

OneDek is an aluminium decking system which maintains strength and stiffness but reduces weight. As an example, the company says a OneDek floor on a 13.5m by 2.44m deck area typically gives a weight saving of some 280kg compared with a similar floor of 28mm hardwood edge grain laminate.
