A subdeck is used in relation to the LP series that ensures that the floor is completely sealed. The subdeck can be easily installed on both a steel and an aluminium subframe and be simply screwed or riveted on to the subdeck outside the watertight section. You barely need to weld because the subdeck profiles are simply clicked into each other and sealed using silicone. The solid plastic bearing is installed on the subdeck that bears and supports the aluminium floor profiles (deck slat) entirely.
LP deck slat
The space between this moving floor profiles (deck slat profiles) is mainly self-cleaning, but can be easily and efficiently cleaned with a broom or high-pressure jetter because of its shape.
It may be important in certain situations that the open spaces between the profiles are sealed so that you have a fully flat loading floor. If this is what you require, we recommend the sealed deck slat profile.
It is, however, important to know that moisture and products may run along the seal and end up in the closed-off intermediate space that is underneath. This dirt must be removed from time to time to prevent the sliding floor profile from becoming stuck. Most dirt and liquids will end up in the underlying drainage channel (on the unloading side) on their own. They must, naturally, be emptied and cleaned from time to time. This, however, is a simple operation.
