For years now Van Hool has been building a very wide range of container chassis for the transportation of standard containers, tank and bulk containers and swap tanks. They are made of high grade steel and are available in 20´, 30´, 40´ and even 45´ versions. It is also standard for most of our container chassis to be painted using our top-quality Van Hool zinc painting process, with more than 85% zinc in the primer coat. For certain types we also offer the possibility of galvanising the chassis.
The lowest possible tare weight is of fundamental importance for the container chassis. Without making any compromises on our renowned reliability, Van Hool combines ruggedness and ultra-competitive empty weights.
The well-conceived design and the use of top-quality materials assure that this container chassis offers an excellent quality and an exceptionally low tare weight.
At Van Hool, we place great emphasis on user-friendliness and accessibility for the driver, so it is standard for us to offer an extremely ergonomic chassis with open back and low steps.
A few of the amazing benefits of our standard matrix line 20´ chassis:
• Extremely low tare weight (±3100 kg)
• Short delivery time
• Excellent driving behaviour
• Large number of possible options
This chassis is also possible in the even shorter 20´/7m15 version.
With many years of experience and constant innovation in the field of container chassis, with its 20´/30´ container chassis Van Hool can transport 20 or 30 foot containers (and all types in between) with 20´ or 30´ connections, your ideal partner.
The chassis has an optimised weight. The standard matrix also offers the same advantages as the 20´ standard matrix chassis, such as short delivery time, option possibilities and so on.
Goose Light 40’ Goose Flex 40’/45’
Both the 45´ light chassis and the 40´/45´ chassis have a sophisticated concept. This extremely durable chassis has been designed down to the finest details, making it possible to install as few parts as possible that are liable to damage. It is standard for the entire chassis to be galvanised. As a result, the chassis is impervious to crushed stone and optimally protects against corrosion. Furthermore, this chassis is also standard-equipped with stylish guide surfaces along the back of the chassis, on which your logo can easily be affixed.
The backsliders are designed to be widely deployed for 20´ , 30´, 40´ or 45´ containers. By making use of the retractable/extendible rear, 20´ containers can be loaded/unloaded on the quay. One can choose between a Benelux (BX) version and a European (EU) version. In addition, the backslider EU also makes it possible to transport the 45´ container throughout Europe in accordance with the legal standards.
Universal container chassis
With the universal container chassis, our engineers and manufacturers succeeded in creating the perfect weight distribution and load capacity for all types of containers. The Van Hool universal container chassis combines an ideal weight distribution with the possibility of loading or unloading a 20-foot heavy-duty container from the rear. This was made possible by building a chassis that is composed of 2 parts that slide over one another, as well as by ensuring that the wheelbase can be adapted for a container with a partial load. The 20-foot container can even be displaced entirely autonomously on the universal container chassis with the aid of the tractor, as a result of which it is not necessary to use a crane/forklift truck.
In order to resist wear during the displacement, the bottom part of the chassis is entirely galvanised. In the back there is a pneumatically adjustable rear piece and a manually extendible bumper.
Beyond this, the universal EU also makes it possible to transport the 45´ container throughout Europe in compliance with the legal standards.
Tipping container chassis
Van Hool also has a very extensive line of tipping container chassis. We offer for this a range of 20´ to 40´ chassis. There are versions available with a 2-part chassis in order to place a 20´ container in the back so as to load/ unload/ tip and nevertheless to drive with the container in an ideal weight distribution. There are versions equipped with a discharge lock, or a preparation for this.
