Vehicle Construction - Products

Transport goods require special bodies on truck chasses. We have been successfully developing and manufacturing custom vehicle bodies for years. Our engineers ensure optimal construction in compliance with the legal regulations. Thanks to state-of-the-art equipment and the experience of our specialists, we produce efficiently – with quality always in mind.

We offer you the optimal vehicle for your transport tasks, with custom-made bodies according to customer requirements. You would be hard pushed to find a renowned transporter that doesn’t rely on Calag bodies. Maximum availability, reliability and customer service are the most important prerequisites in this business.

 

Construction of special vehicle bodies

Custom-made products are our speciality. In many cases, a standard “off-the-shelf” construction can’t provide the optimum performance for the intended purpose. With our in-house design department, you receive professional advice from the start of the project to find the best solution for a vehicle built specifically according to your needs.

Calag cone placement vehicle – the custom vehicle for road safety

What is a cone placement vehicle?

The cone placement vehicle is designed to place traffic cones safely on the road and collect them too.

The traffic cones are placed and collected by the system of rollers, called the “baliseur”. When placing cones and thereby blocking or restricting the road, the operator places one traffic cone after the other on the roller conveyor, which deploys them onto the road. The baliseur can place cones over the entire width of the road using the swivel device while the vehicle is moving. This means that the cones can be placed individually over the entire width of the road at the start or end of the process.

Collecting the traffic cones looks more difficult than it is. Even a layperson can pick up the procedure after a short period of time. The driver reverses and uses the side mirror to move towards the cone. Using a special, patented impact bar, the cone is tilted slightly and transported onto the roller conveyor. A camera is mounted at the rear of the vehicle for the driver’s safety. With two screens near both side mirrors, the driver can simultaneously observe the rear area and stop immediately in case of danger.
