A FEW more COMMON QUESTIONS ANSWERED
No. Duralite use CAD software to design each trailer specifically for a given hull shape. Over the years we have catalogued the basic hull forms of many makes and models of boats used in Australia. If we do not have the information for a given hull it is a simple process to measure a boat and can be done by virtually anyone with a tape measure and a pen.
If we are not able to get access to the boat ourselves we can send a simple measure sketch which can be filled out and returned. With this data and a few photos of the boat we can produce a trailer to fit any boat.
Aluminium is used in many industries where strength and durability are essential. Aluminium is approximately 1/3rd the weight of steel while at the same time kg-to-kg it is comparable in strength so the structure of the trailer can be significantly larger without compromising the strength and at the same time reducing the overall weight of the trailer.
Duralite Trailers use marine-grade aluminium extrusions which are specifically designed for harsh environments. When you combine these high-quality aluminium materials with a properly custom-designed trailer the risks of fatigue over time disappear.
Often the fatigue found in aluminium trailers is caused either by the structure being undersized or the boat not being supported properly. Both of these causes unnecessary stress to the structure of the trailer. Duralite trailers are engineered and designed specifically to fit a particular boat and its load so neither of these issues affects our trailers.
Years of experience building and using boat trailers has taught us that low maintenance and easy-to-use are keys to a good trailer. Rollers are an effective way to support a vessel on a trailer however they require regular maintenance and adjustment to remain effective.
The Duralite Dura-bunks are made from a wood/plastic composite material which is UV stable and will not rot or distort. Once these Bunks have been properly fit to match the hull shape of the vessel they offer a continuous support structure for the hull during travel.
The Duralite bent cross members coupled with the durabunk hull supports are designed to self-centre the vessel as it is driven onto the trailer.
Torsion axle technology is a simple durable suspension system which has been used in vehicle axles for more than 60 years.
Duralite use Australian made torsion axles which are virtually maintenance-free and have no leaf springs that will rust. Being a type of independent suspension torsion axles significantly improve the ride quality of the trailer in comparison to the conventional spring axles.
