Aluminum is now the second most widely used metal in the world, just behind iron. There are many reasons why we chose to build our tool boxes with this material.
Malleability is a physical property of metals that defines the ability to be hammered, pressed, or rolled into thin sheets without breaking. In other words, it is the property of a metal to deform under compression. Like gold and silver, aluminum is malleable which also means workable or pliable. This characteristic allows us to offer aluminum tool boxes for semi-trucks that have multiple custom options and sizes. You can even draw the truck box you have in mind and we will build it for you. This is only possible because of its malleability.
Since aluminum is easy to work with, it allows us to offer you a fast turnaround time between an order request and the delivery of our truck tool boxes. You can expect your new tool box in a matter of days, not weeks. We know how important that is to our customers.
Unlike most steel grades, aluminum does not become brittle when temperatures drop. It’s the actual opposite! It retains its toughness at very low temperatures. Anyone living in Canada will understand how important this is. Its strength can be adapted to the application required by modifying the composite of its alloys. Certain alloys are as strong as steel!
Since aluminum is three times lighter than steel while having similar strength, your semi truck tool box will offer great resistance while reducing your semi truck’s effort carrying the tool box.
You certainly don’t want to cover your semi truck tool box because you’re afraid it’s going to rust. Here is one more reason why we love aluminum tool boxes: corrosion resistance. Aluminum reacts with the oxygen in the air to form an extremely thin layer of oxide that offers excellent corrosion protection and it’s self-repairing when damaged!
We, at Trebor, ensure that our tool boxes are properly sealed along all seams and corners for maximum protection. Our compression handles offer the compression needed to ensure proper door closure and all our lids are reinforced by stainless steel hinges. No water, no rust!
There are many more reasons why we love aluminum toolboxes and why we think you should too. We could talk about the fact that it’s non-toxic, which is why it is commonly used in contact with food. We also love the fact that it’s easy to recycle.
