Up and over
The exclusive design has been engineered to be integral to the body structure allowing the door tracks to be recessed into the side walls. This means that the door track does not protrude into the valuable storage space allowing slide out trays to be installed wall-to-wall and pass through the door opening unimpeded. The door counterbalancers are tuned to allow the door to be opened and closed with little effort by two fingers and yet stay in whatever open position required. Door on each respective side of the body can be locked by a single lever on the front of the body vastly increasing thief security of equipment.
Because Hackney invented a way to increase the door pass-thru space by recessing the door track integrally into the body structure, we decided to not stop there.
Adjustable shelf tracks are recessed into side walls and compartment dividers. LED compartment lights are recessed on side walls and partitions to provide lighting above and below shelves and trays. This feature allows shelves and trays to be manufactured to full compartment width, maximizing storage capacity with no protruding impediments.
15% Space Gained
Pictured is a door opening on a Hackney Commander Series body using ROM or Amdor shutter doors and is the same as all other rescue body manufactures. Unlike the Hackney Classic body that is engineered with the door tracks recessed into the body structure, shutter door tracks protrude into the door opening. As depicted on the tape measure shown here, 3.5” of pass-thru space is lost on each side. This reduces the width of a tray that must slide through the door opening by 7”. On a 48” wide compartment, that’s a 15% storage loss.
