Great Dane partners with Hendrickson
As strategic partners, Hendrickson worked closely with Great Dane throughout the development of ULTRAA-K. By supplying prototypes for Great Dane, Hendrickson logged valuable real-world miles to validate the system's design while giving Great Dane an opportunity to provide feedback about its maintenance and ride quality characteristics. Additionally, Great Dane submitted ULTRAA-K to rigorous testing to evaluate its strength and durability to ensure this system lives up to its stringent standard for supplying high-quality, dependable products. Standard, exclusive ULTRAA-K features including:

Zero Maintenance Damping™ (ZMD™): Featuring a patentpending design, this "shock-less" ride technology incorporates suspension damping within the air spring, which is designed to provide uniform damping levels over the life of the spring. ZMD air springs offer superior cargo protection and driver comfort compared to shocks. The elimination of the shock absorber decreases suspension maintenance and reduces risks associated with roadside tickets and CSA violations.

Pivoting Mud Flap Brackets: Mud flaps and associated components are susceptible to damage, especially when pinched against a curb while a trailer is operating in reverse. Hendrickson designed pivoting mud flap brackets to prevent damaged mud flaps and to reduce maintenance associated with replacing mud flap components.

Protected Height Control Valve Mounting: ULTRAA-K's unique HCV mounting ensures more accurate ride height settings and locates the HCV in a more secure location to protect against road debris.

10-Year Warranty: Engineered for toughness, ULTRAA-K is backed by a 10-year structural corrosion warranty, unmatched in today's marketplace.

Key Advantages
Like Great Dane's line of Everest trailers, the ULTRAA-K system is known for its strength, dependability and light weight. With a robust yet lightweight design and virtually maintenance-free components, ULTRAA-K is a high-performance system that allows fleets to carry more cargo per load and helps keep Great Dane's Everest trailers where they should be—out of maintenance bays and on the road. Beginning July 2014, the ULTRAA-K will come standard on all Great Dane Everest reefer models
