Zinc-A-Skel Trailers

The Elphinstone Zinc-A-Skel was built following an approach by a customer seeking a solution to their specific task.

By spending time looking at the products to be transported; their loading and unloading facilities and working out how to achieve a quick turn around whilst still undertaking a safe operation, we were able to design and manufacture the Zinc-A-Skel.

Elphinstone built 4 single trailers which started work 7 days a week; 9-11 hours per day with a load on and off every 40 minutes. The units have proven to be efficient in their operation as well as providing the customer with a unit that is easy to maintain. These trailers were put into operation in 1994 and are still doing the same job today.
