40mm Truck Tailgate Hinge Catch – Dual Swing Hinge for Truck Tippers

Replacement 40mm catch is coated in black electrogal to help prevent rust.

Usually located at the bottom right of the tipper door, an additional catch may be used at the bottom left.

Couplemate’s cast steel tipper tailgate hinges are designed for durability. Unlike regular dropdown hinges, tipper hinges attach to the top of the tailgate to open from the bottom, allowing the tilted tray to deposit its gravel load easily.

This catch is electrically bonded with a weldable black zinc coating (ElectroGal®)to help prevent rust in corrosive environments. After welding, the weld is sprayed with matt black galvanised zinc spray paint.

Tailgate hinges are suitable for either horizontal or side-swinging applications. Therefore, they would be a convenient addition to your auto tipper or side-swing tailgate doors.

Various size latches and catches are available

Truck Tipper Tail Gates: The Importance of a Proper Design

Trucks are essential to modern-day transport as the backbone of many industrial and construction activities. A truck’s efficiency depends on several factors, one of which is the tailgate design. In particular, the tipper tailgate is critical in ensuring that the loading and offloading process is efficient and safe.

A well-designed tipper tailgate accomplishes two things. Firstly, it streamlines the dumping process by creating an unobstructed path for the load to slide out of the truck bed. Secondly, it provides a stable platform for workers performing loading or unloading tasks. Therefore, a poorly designed tailgate, such as one that is too heavy or weak, can be hazardous, leading to injuries and even fatalities.

Tailgate Durability

Several traits should be considered when designing a tipper tailgate. These include weight distribution, durability, and ease of operation. Adequate weight distribution ensures that the gate moves smoothly and does not damage the truck’s body or the transport load.

Conversely, durability ensures the tailgate can handle the constant wear and tear from daily use. Finally, the easy operation allows workers to load and unload efficiently, increasing their productivity.

Tipping and Unloading Safety

To conclude, a properly designed tipper tailgate is essential to any truck. It ensures workers’ safety and enables the efficient loading and unloading of goods. Therefore, manufacturers should prioritize the design of these tailgates, ensuring that they meet industry standards and specifications.

This way, accidents and lost time due to malfunctioning tailgates can be avoided, saving companies unnecessary expenses and ensuring their operations run smoothly.
