Altec Increases Rust-Resistant Solutions to Customers in Highly-Corrosive Environments

Altec Industries has announced it will now offer a galvannealed floor and tailshelf option on small aerial bodies. The new option is part of Altec's ongoing initiative to offer rust-resistant solutions to customers operating in highly-corrosive environments.

Altec currently offers a wide range of corrosion-resistant options including the “ICE Package”, which provides a stainless steel body side pack underneath the floor level. This option provides a rust-resistant stainless body and has proven to be an outstanding solution to customers working in environments with the potential for corrosion. In addition, Altec applies undercoating to all bodies, wheel well liners and in-body wheel chock holders to prevent rust.

For customers looking to reduce the presence of rust, a galvannealed floor and tail shelf will provide many benefits including resistance against corrosion, which allows for better ability to paint, weld and form. To keep safety at the forefront, the floor and tail shelf will continue to be covered with a non-skid coating, offering the same slip resistance as the previously designed treadplate surfaces.

Other rust prevention options available to customers include a variety of aluminum products; for example, ladder racks, cone holders, rubberized bed liners and rust-resistant steps. These options are ideal for customers working in harsh environments where rusting is prevalent.

Later this year, the galvannealed floor and tail shelf option will be available on large aerial and derrick bodies. For more information or to receive a quote today, please call 800-958-2555 or visit
