What type of bulkhead is best for my flatbed?

There are two basic types of flatbed bulkheads, the wrap-around and the flat.

Choosing the right bulkhead is important for the safety of both the driver and the cargo.  In addition, you want something durable enough to stand up to shifting load while not adding weight to your trailer.

Flat Bulkheads:

A flat bulkhead is sufficient if you won’t be loading cargo that requires additional reinforcement on the sides.

With the flat bulkhead, you’re not sacrificing any deck space, allowing pallets to be loaded up against the bulkhead.

Flat bulkheads are available in both corrugated or flat metal.
