Deck XL birch plywood is used as flooring in all standard CityBOX bodies
Metsä Wood supplies flooring for all standard CityBOX box vans: Deck XL birch plywood, cut exactly to the required sizes. The lightweight panels save time in the assembly phase as they are easy to machine and fasten.
Assembling a CityBOX starts by constructing a sub-frame of aluminium crossbars and longitudinal beams, which matches exactly the vehicle it will be mounted on. An aluminium profile frame is then manufactured, where the
Birch Ply Deck XL panels are fitted into, creating a lightweight and sustainable loading floor.
The lightweight Deck XL panels are easy to handle. The panels are first lifted into the aluminium profile frame with a vacuum lift. Holes are then drilled through the floor and the sub-frame, and the flooring is screwed to the frame with high quality Torx screws.
The side, front and roof panels are produced according to specific customer demands. Next, all constructed parts are built-up on a special bridge and the roof panel is attached. The box is then moved to another hall, where the finishing touch is laid and the box undergoes careful inspection to ensure quality. After this the completed box is rolled out of the factory and is ready to transport to the customer.
“We chose Metsä Wood as our flooring supplier for several reasons. Deck XL has a long life-span and Metsä Wood provides it in exactly the dimensions we require, which saves valuable time in manufacturing,” remarks
William Visser, CityBOX Sales Manager, Europe.
