Heavy duty trucks
Commercial vehicles, such as heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) and large goods vehicles (LGVs) carry out long journeys, in turbulent weather and carrying varying loads. Our commercial vehicle steering systems are designed and manufactured with this in mind, unlike off-the-shelf steering systems.
At Pailton Engineering, we are proud of our reputation as a leading manufacturer of steering parts for the commercial vehicle sector. We have over fifty years of experience in the design and manufacture of steering parts, including heavy duty truck steering parts. Our experienced engineers understand the demands these vehicles face.
Vehicles working in sub-zero temperatures in countries like Canada will undoubtedly have different needs from those in hot climates like the Middle East or Australia, and we take this into account from day one of the design process. Equally, commercial vehicles are often required to travel through extreme road and weather conditions and drivers must be able to cope with a multitude of scenarios.
We rigorously test parts for trucks under the load or forces they may encounter, establishing an accurate fatigue life of the parts and system as a whole.
