Description

The optimal solution for transporting sensitive materials

Features and advantages of the characteristic hexagonal axle profile:

  • Increased driving comfort due to long suspension travel
  • Increased driving comfort due to a softer suspension
  • Increased driving safety due to high inherent damping
  • Each wheel has independent suspension
  • No damage possible to the wheel housing
  • The suspension is maintenance-free

The AL-KO hexagonal rubber suspension is especially well suited for the safe, gentle and stress-free transport of valuable items such as animals, electronic parts, hazardous materials or furniture.

How it works: 
The AL-KO hexagonal outer tube in conjunction with the triangular inner tube achieves the greatest suspension travels compared to any other rubber suspension axle. Our suspension procedure does not squash the rubber, rather we give it room to work. In addition, the AL-KO hexagonal rubber suspension is also optimally customised to the total weight of the trailer.

FAQ

It ensures more driving safety and increased driving comfort for caravans and car trailers. This axle system was developed for the safe and comfortable transport of even sensitive goods such as furniture, electronic parts or hazardous materials. In addition, it also enables the stress-free transport of animals in the car trailer.
