INDIANAPOLIS (Feb. 12, 2019) — Philippi-Hagenbuch Inc., a global leader in off-highway truck customization, has invented a new version of their Autogate® Tailgate specifically for off-highway trucks and roll-off containers that require a 100% positive seal. This new design can be paired with PHIL’s proprietary fluidic seal material to create a water-tight seal that contains liquid materials within an off-highway truck body or roll-off container when environmental regulations or local laws make even slight spillage undesirable.
The new Positive Seal Autogate® Tailgate can be designed for practically any size off-highway truck or roll-off container. Paired with PHIL’s simple yet robust outrigger, its traditional scissors-style mechanism provides an industry-leading maximum opening clearance at full dump. In the closed position, the new design positively locks into place and will not open under normal conditions without the body or container entering the “dump” mode.
The new design builds up the rearmost portion of the truck body or container to create a cohesive flange from which the tailgate compresses. Two hooks on either side of the base of the flange intercept a corresponding tag on the tailgate, allowing the tailgate to pivot inward as the sidearm and over-center locking mechanism compressively lock the rear tailgate into place.
As with PHIL’s entire line of Autogate Tailgates, a three-year warranty is standard when installed with PHIL Installation Supervision Assistance or at their Peoria, Illinois factory. Optional body seals, fluidic seals and cushion pads are available to further customize PHIL’s Autogate Tailgates for unique applications. Roll-off containers with PHIL’s Positive Seal Autogate Tailgate pair perfectly with a PHIL J-Hook industrial-strength hook truck outfitted with a corresponding PHIL tailgate outrigger. When capacity is a concern, PHIL’s Positive Seal Autogate Tailgate can be built up for sideboards. Sideboards are available in one-inch increments from 6-inches to 40-inches in height and provide a unified body height while increasing the volumetric capacity of the truck body, helping operators achieve optimal loads.
The new Positive Seal Autogate Tailgate and its full slate of options are available for order beginning Tuesday, February 12, 2019, at AGG1.
