Dear Valued Customer,

As you would expect, we have been completely focussed on the developing coronavirus situation, monitoring and assessing the latest information and guidance.

In all of our related decision making, the health of our customers, our team, subcontractors and wider society, has been at the forefront of our thinking, and we are committed to doing the right thing.

We now have a responsibility to close our manufacturing factory, offices and all construction site installation activities.

We will therefore be closing our operational activities, effective from 16.00 hours today 24th March 2020, and we see this as a responsible action in an exceptional situation.

Please note that this action will remain the case on a temporary basis and that we will continue to review matters regularly and will resume our business operations again when it is deemed safe to do so.

We have to accept that this action will impact our incredibly important clients and customers, and we are aware of the inevitable financial implications, but we need to do the right thing for society, for our healthcare system and, most importantly for you and your families.

We are all on an unknown journey with Coronavirus and we must do everything we can to mitigate the spread of the virus. Our hearts and thoughts go out to the people who have been affected and we hugely value the healthcare workers and those on the front line working to contain the virus and keep us all safe.

I would like to personally thank you for your ongoing commitment and support during this time of uncertainty.

Trailer Safety Systems

The Northern Trailer company introduces the Trailer Safety System which gives you an integrated protected access walkway which can be deployed in less than 5 minutes.

You can't afford to ignore safety relating to working at height.

Drivers climbing directly on to trailer decks during either loading or unloading without an effective edge protection system could contravene the HSE WORKING AT HEIGHT REG 2005

The NTC Pathfinder is a patented trailer safety system, which deployed in approximately 5 minutes provides your workforce with a safe, level and effective edge protection walkway system for flatbed trailers and rigid vehicles.

Our unique safety system provides users with a practical, effective and time efficient solution to everyday loading and unloading without the need to reduce load size.

The NTC Pathfinder is a deployable system fitted to the trailer, meaning there is no need for additional access equipment, meaning loads can be delivered to various sites including ones with restricted access.

Unlike other safety systems on the market such as soft landing bags, clamping or fall arrest systems, as the NTC Pathfinder is a fitted system this means there is no need to transport parts for assembly, eliminating the risk of key parts being lost or misplaced.

Side rails also drop down providing access for fork lift loading and unloading, another unique feature that makes the NTC Pathfinder ideal for all your transportation needs.
