DuraLite Bulkheads are available as a 10" or 22" Wrap Model (DOT Rated).
Aero utilizes Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and destructive testing when developing new products. By knowing how a design will perform on the road, engineers can create stronger, more efficient components.
Aero makes a complete line of good-looking, hard-working DuraLite bulkheads to fit your needs. Each bulkhead has been designed with attention to detail and quality you expect from Aero. DuraLite bulkheads provide strength and security for your driver and the load.
DOT-rated bulkheads come in 10″ and 22″ wrap models. Flat (no wrap) models are also available (non-DOT rated).
Above is an FEA of a bulkhead attached to a trailer. This image shows the point where pressure is being applied on the bulkhead’s support posts.
Above is a bulkhead that was tested to well over 60,000 lbs of force and didn’t fail. The bulkhead withstood over twice the D.O.T. requirement. Aero tests all bulkheads to FMCSA 393.114 with their destructive tests.
The image above demonstrates the effectiveness of FEA under 60,000 lbs of force. The bulkhead and the connection to the trailer did not break.
