Wabash Duraplate


Introduced in 1996, the DuraPlate® van revolutionized the trucking industry. Designed for a wide range of freight hauls, our conventional DuraPlate vans provide maximum cube capacity, exceptional durability, lightweight performance, and resale values among the best in the industry.

ID/Aux Stop Light System The new ID/Stop Light System integrates auxiliary brake light indicator functionality with the upper rear ID lights – providing better visibility of trailer braking.

DuraPlate Doors with the TrustLock Plus System Lightweight and extremely durable, DuraPlate composite swing doors resist corrosion and impact damage to lower your maintenance costs. Swing doors come standard with our proprietary TrustLock Plus® System. DuraPlate overhead door designs are also available.

Top Rail Connection Unlike other composite plate trailer designs, our top rail connects to the exterior of the trailer sidewall, eliminating potential and significant leak points.

DuraPlate® Composite Plate Sidewalls DuraPlate panels are constructed of a high-density polyethylene core bonded between two high-strength steel skins to provide unmatched damage resistance and maximum interior width. DuraPlate sidewall panels are made in the U.S.A. and backed by a 10-year warranty.*

High-Strength Floor System Rated at 20,000 lb., our full 1-3/8” oak floor system with bolted crossmember connections provides superior floor strength to support high-cycle loading/unloading and extends floor life. Floor systems with higher load ratings are also available.
