Dropside Options



Fall Rails

Ingimex fall rail installations are designed to be lightweight but strong. They are fitted 850mm above the deck of the body.

Access Kit (grab handle & folding footstep)

Steel tubular grab handles and fold-out footsteps can be fitted to either side of the headboard of an Ingimex body. The Ingimex folding footstep installation has been designed in line with HSE guidelines (safe access to road vehicles WPT02).

Access Kit XL (access kit plus under body step)

In addition to the Access Kit option, an underbody footstep can be fitted as part of a side guard. Finish is yellow/grey powder coat as standard.



Ingimex can arrange fitting of livery to customer’s requirements during production of the body.

Tool trunks

The Ingimex tool trunk has a bolted construction to aid easy replacement of panels, but bolts can only be undone from the inside for security.
