Environmental Awareness

Being situated in one of the most beautiful and fertile farming communities outside of any major center, Durabody Industries Limited has always been sensitive to the need for clean air and water for the healthy growth of crops and the promotion of our green eco-systems. Durabody was amongst the first in our industry to embrace the use of "environmentally friendly" EPA approved under-coatings and paints for our products. We have undertaken to modify, adjust and refine our manufacturing processes to minimize harmful effluences and eliminate the use of toxic materials wherever possible. This is a continuing, never ending process for our design and production teams undertaken not only to preserve our environment, but to ensure a safe and healthy work area for all our personnel and neighbours.

By careful selection of materials and processes, the usefulness of this product can be tailored to the application and load ratings that the vehicle is expected to perform within. Similarly if price is a factor, the design configuration can be made such as to strike a balance between functionality and cost. The prospective buyer however, must always keep sight of the trade-offs between functionality to get the job done, overall lifecycle costs, and initial costs. As a quality manufacturer, Durabody must maintain a certain standard of excellence in the products it manufactures and may restrict the amount of acceptable tradeoff and cost cutting measures.

Durabody has manufactured trailers under its trade name since 1981. Due to the custom nature of the application or the trailer configuration itself, these products fill a niche which other manufacturers cannot satisfy. All products are designed and built to meet and exceed industry standards and must consider requirements to bear the load safely and economically to its destination. No engineering design is complete without due consideration of conformance to all legal issues inherent in operating in the patchwork of jurisdictions found throughout North America. Towards this end, the customer is expected to apprise us of the locale where the product is to be operated. Otherwise, all trailers are built to satisfy Ontario DOT standards as of the date of manufacture.

The variety and flexibility of add-ons to any body or trailer determines its usefulness to perform a specific function. The options that Durabody can provide, but is not limited to, are listed under each respective product specification.
