Logistic Beams are a very handy way of not only providing a securement option for cargo but also creating more organized space within the trailer, which can reduce freight damage, reduce wasted time, and reduce the number of trips to and from the terminal.... They can be used for both decking and shoring applications to help make securing and organizing your cargo much easier.
For decking applications, these Logistic Beams are built with the strength to support an extra layer of cargo on the inside of the trailer. Use this added floor to increase your trailer’s capacity, increasing the amount of loads you can secure while reducing the number of trips needed to transport everything. This can also reduce the risk of damaged freight since you’re no longer stacking uneven items on top of each other.
For shoring applications, the Logistic Beams create a solid and supportive hold on the cargo, keeping everything in place while acting as a strong barrier between loads. Not only does this help keep cargo from hitting each other, separating loads keeps the inside of the trailer more organized. The beams can help prevent different loads for different deliveries mixing together, creating a jumbled mess that requires sorting, which can inevitably waste valuable time.
Take a look at the different Decking/Shoring Logistic Beams we have available to help make your securement job easier and your trailer more organized.
Logistic Beams 101 is part of the Kinedyne Education Series of introductory videos created by Kinedyne LLC. This series of videos is designed to teach the basics of cargo securement products: what they are, what they are used for, and how to choose the right tools for the job and more.
Standard beams use a tab style mechanism to release the beam from the track. This tab is located on the top side of the head, and it extends past the top surface of the beam, which makes it more prone to damage. What’s more, it’s also quite difficult to operate this release tab when you’re wearing gloves or when the beam is in an elevated position.
Faced with this problem, Kinedyne created our KwikLatch, which simplifies the effort to engage the beam head with the track. This release tab is positioned on the side of the beam head rather than the top, making it less likely to get damaged. It’s also easier to reach, even if you’re wearing oversized gloves. The KwikLatch feature is included as standard on our FE8000 and FE8066 series beams and can be retrofit into any existing beams from these series that are already in service.
Aluminum Decking/Shoring Beams
Aluminum Decking/Shoring Beams offer a reliable method of gaining control over the inside of your trailer. Built for strength, these beams are engineered to provide a solid method of securement while also offering a way to organize and separate loads and increase cargo capacity. They can be used as dividers to prevent different types of cargo from damaging each other every time the truck takes a sharp turn. These beams can also be used to create a second floor within the trailer that offers more space to carry more cargo.
There’s a beam for nearly any kind of securement job, from standard duty to heavy duty to severe duty. No matter how tough the job or how heavy the cargo, our beams are built with the strength to handle the job.
Kinedyne FE8066 Series Aluminum Decking/Shoring Beams are made from extruded high-strength aluminum, designed to give maximum strength at minimum weight. The beams’ head assemblies are all made of steel with a zinc plated finish, are tapered for easy operation, and come standard with the KwikLatch release. They are available in the following adjustable sizes: 84.6" to 95" for 96-inch sized trailers; 91.9" to 102.3" for 96-inch and 102-inch sized trailers; and 96.2" to 106.6" for 102-inch sized high cube trailers.
For tougher loads that require more strength, Kinedyne Series FE8000 Heavy-Duty Aluminum Decking/Shoring Beams have 25% more aluminum than the standard beam for added strength and durability. These beams also come standard with our KwikLatch release mechanism and ergonomic finger tab. For convenience, we carry our heavy-duty beams in the following adjustable sizes: 84.6" to 95" for 96-inch sized trailers; 91.9" to 102.3" for 96-inch and 102-inch sized trailers; and 96.2" to 106.6" for 102-inch sized high cube trailers.
We’ve taken the steps to go beyond heavy-duty to offer you our Kinedyne FE8050 series EXTRA Heavy-Duty Aluminum Decking/Shoring Beams. These beams are designed for the most severe-duty applications so that you have the strength to handle the toughest securement jobs. These beams have 70% more aluminum than the heavy-duty beams for even more strength and durability. We offer these beams in two adjustable sizes: 88" to 97.7" for 96-inch sized trailers; and 92.9" to 102.6" for 96-inch and 102-inch sized trailers.
Steel Decking/Shoring Beam
Kinedyne 1866 series Steel Decking/Shoring Beams are constructed from high-strength anti-rust galvanized 2" x 3" rectangular welded steel tubing. This is the kind of beam you use when you want durability on your side. This beam has a built-in trigger and spring for long-lasting positive lock control for added security when it comes to holding down the load or creating a double deck. These beams can be adjusted from 92" to 103" for 96-inch and 102-inch sized trailers.
