BrandFX lightweight materials offer administrative and safety advantages over traditional materials. Among the many additional advantages of BrandFX advanced composite bodies is sustainable construction and a clean look and feel that lasts decades.

Manufacturing lightweight advanced composite truck bodies since the 1980’s, BrandFX has been a  sustainable choice for generations

Truck Bodies That Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Truck bodies that are built by BrandFX create lasting value for fleets because of their lightweight and durable construction. BrandFX bodies are much lighter than steel and aluminum truck bodies. By choosing lightweight composite BrandFX truck bodies, fleets are able to reduce their impact on the environment. In fact, the United States Department of Environmental Protection quantifies the environmental impact of lightweighting. On it’s website, the USDEP states that for every 100 lbs of reduced vehicle weight, overall fuel use is reduced by 2%. Using that calculation, a weight reduction of 400 lbs would create an 8% reduction in overall fuel costs. Advanced composite truck bodies also  last a very long time, and are frequently remounted onto three, or more, chassis before they eventually need to be replaced. Because they are so lightweight and durable, BrandFX truck bodies have an enormous sustainability advantage over traditional materials. As large fleets continue to transition to lighter, more sustainable fleets, they are reducing their impact while improving their bottom lines.

 

Truck Bodies for Residential and Commercial Heating Oil Utility Fleets

  • Service trucks – Service trucks with advanced composite bodies that are specifically designed to support heating oil fleets often have greater payload capacity, which is a real advantage on a medium duty body
  • Mechanics trucks – Mechanics trucks allow fleets to maintain higher levels of operational efficiency by traveling to job sites for unscheduled service and maintenance tasks.
  • Service Vans – Service vans enable fleets purposed for system upgrades and repairs. Vans enable burner service technicians and other professionals more secure space for tools, equipment and materials.
  • Specialized Fleet Equipment – Specialized equipment for fleets includes heavy duty mechanic service trucks, crane trucks, canopy bodies, and trucks and truck beds fitted with knuckle boom cranes, lube trailers and lube skids.
  • Fuel Delivery Truck – Fuel delivery trucks are some of the most highly recognizable and specialized heating oil fleet resources.
  • Welding Truck – Welding trucks feature special modifications and carry separate tools than most service vehicles in a gas utility fleet. Heavier lockers, specialized tools and additional power make welding trucks unique in these fleet organizations.

Truck Bodies – Lightweighting

Truck bodies built by BrandFX are leading the trend in lighterweighting, a smarter choice for fleets. A fleet of lightweight truck bodies has the twin advantages of fuel cost savings and increased payload. Lightweight truck bodies have an added advantage of an extended life in your fleet, which drives down the overall life cycle cost of the equipment.  By decreasing the weight of a fleet’s vehicles, managers can have a profound financial impact on an organization’s bottom line, whether the organization is large or a single work truck owned by an independent contractor.

Lightweighting with BrandFX – Improve Your Company Image

BrandFX lightweight truck bodies, toppers and workpods provide many advantages to fleets across the United States and around the world. One concern that is not present for owners of BrandFX truck bodies is repainting their equipment. This is because the color and finish of a BrandFX truck body is built into the construction of the material itself. BrandFX advanced composite can not fade and will not lose its clean, unblemished finish. One significant advantage of advanced composite truck bodies and work pods is that they do not dent, rust, corrode or pock. As a result, fleets that use BrandFX can expect their truck bodies to maintain a clean, professional look for decades.

Moving Heating Oil Into the Home

Oil burner service technicians are responsible for many of the safety and operational systems involved with the domestic and commercial use of heating oil. These systems have several moving parts, and wear parts, including pump components, hoses and nozzles. These systems require testing, cleaning and maintenance. Heating oil technicians primarily check and adjust safety valves and temperature controls.  When repairs are necessary, they restore heating oil service by any safe means necessary, but most commonly by repairing electrical elements or replacing pipes.  Oil utility service fleets must also be equipped to perform furnace installations and upgrades.

Oil Burner Service Technician Tool Box:

Oil burner service technicians must be well trained and well equipped to handle any number of situations. Tools normally onboard a heating oil service vehicle include:

  • High pressure gauges
  • Pressure gauge manifolds
  • High-pressure hoses
  • Nozzle Spanners

  • Allen Keys
