BrandFX Lightweight Truck Bodies, Toppers & Inserts For Water Utility Fleets

Truck bodies, toppers and workpod inserts manufactured by BrandFX are designed and built with fleet needs and technician requirements in mind.  Easily accessible curbside compartments are designed to make a technician’s equipment, tools and material streamlined and organized.  Mechanical components, such as secondary alternators, ePTO systems and adapters, are located in other compartments. Having equipment and materials right where you need them makes a big difference in the working day of a water utility technician.

Truck bodies for residential and commercial Water Utility utility fleets

  • Service trucks – Service trucks with advanced composite bodies often have greater payload capacity, which is a real advantage on a medium duty body.

  • Mechanics Trucks – Mechanics trucks allow water utility 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 assigned to system upgrades and repairs to work more effectively. Vans enable more secure space for water utility tools, equipment and materials.

  • Specialized Fleet Equipment – Water utility fleets have specialized circumstances, depending on geography, climate and service area. Additionally, local water resource systems may differ and therefore require greater versatility from their equipment.

  • Toppers, Tonneau Covers & Workpods – Workpods, inserts and truck toppers support water utility technicians with lightweight equipment and tool storage solutions that support their work

  • Welding Trucks – Welding trucks feature special modifications and carry separate tools than most service vehicles in a water utility fleet. Heavier lockers, specialized tools and additional power make welding trucks unique in these fleet organizations.

Truck Bodies Built To Withstand Rugged Fleet Work

Truck bodies for the water utility industry need to be dependable and rugged.  No work day is ever the same, and heavy duty work in rough terrain can test the durability of commercial vehicles. Depending on industry and geography, commercial fleets deal with rain, heat, snow, ice and salt while out on the road, which are all factors that challenge the exterior of a work truck. Most technicians who operate industrial equipment began their careers driving trucks with steel bodies. Recent product innovations, including advanced composite material that are just as strong as steel, but much more lightweight, are changing the rules. Steel truck bodies are reliable and strong, and they also oxidize, rust and corrode. Occasionally, they will crumple with impact from heavier loads. BrandFX fiberglass truck bodies retain their shape and do not pock, dent or corrode in any way.  Innovative advanced composite work pods and truck bodies have another advantage over aluminum and steel truck bodies because the paint is embedded in the material itself.

Truck Bodies, Toppers & Workpods Manufactured With Technicians In Mind

BrandFX lightweight truck bodies provide efficiency, utility and durability for water utility fleets. Commercial and residential water service is either handled through municipal utilities, as is the case for the majority of Americans, or through a privately owned water utility company, as is the case with approximately one quarter of people in the United States. Transporting water is a challenging task, as it is very heavy. Much more important to the water utility industry is its ability to service water utility infrastructure.  Water utility fleets use a wide variety of equipment to manage and maintain water utility lines and resources. Service trucks, vans and specialized fleet vehicles all play an important role in the water utility fleet operations.
