Steel Flatbeds


The Wabash Steel Flatbed is built to last. Heat-treated, 130ksi steel provides high strength and low trailer weight. In addition, the premium paint process ensures best-in-class corrosion resistance and keeps your trailer looking good year after year.

More Flexibility. Longer Life.

Less Maintenance. more uptime.

Better visibility.

Superior Corrosion Resistance.

With some of the highest floor ratings in the industry, this trailer design offers load flexibility. The main beam provides a stronger web to flange attachment for long-life performance. Potential corrosion is eliminated between the flange and web by welding the high tensile steel at all flange-web joints. In addition, the ″K″ type structural assembly reduces side bending.

The interlocking apitong floor system connects using two grade-8 floor screws at each crossmember. The double shear connection reduces racking and damage to nailers around the screw holes. In addition, the radius edges on the ″C″ section siderail reduce the wear of winch straps, while the steel rub rail with recessed grooves protects conspicuity tape.

The standard enhanced visibility lighting system offers three stop/tail/turn lights and five dual-function side marker lights. The side marker lights also function as turn signals for improved motorist visibility.

100% of steel surfaces are shot blasted prior to applying primer and paint, eliminating the need for chemical pretreatments. From the ultra-high-zinc, epoxy primer and galvanic coating, to the automotive grade acrylic urethane paint, this trailer resists corrosion and increases resale value.
