The dropside product is a generic description for a variety of body styles that suit a range of market sectors from Traffic Management, Construction, Utilities, Builders Merchants, Scaffold carriers, Gas Bottle Carriers and many more. At Alloy Bodies we have a wide range of experience in all of these markets from lightweight aluminium through to heavy duty off road applications. Once again most dimensions are tailored to suit, subject to legal and type approval constraints.

On our LCV range dropsides can be configured in various ways with single and double sections at heights of up to 600mm high. Tilt canopies and ‘A’ frames with PVC covers are available to aid weather protection and cargo constraint. Load boards with ladder gantries can be incorporated for longer items to be stored over the cab and coupled with a comprehensive choice of load restraint solutions.
