Robust, durable and ideal for mounting bodies – the frame

A tough cookie

The demands on the vehicle frame in the subsidiary construction sector are both challenging and varied. That’s why the Atego is designed to cut a powerful figure both on the construction site – and in city traffic. The Atego features a robust frame that is equal to the requirements of everyday operation. The frame members are available in thicknesses 5.0 and 7.0 mm depending on vehicle model. This ensures outstanding bending strength and torsional rigidity.

A continuous hole matrix and cathodic dip priming ensure outstanding rust and corrosion protection for the Atego frame. Thanks to the 50 mm hole matrix, no further drilling is necessary when mounting attachments and other units, such as tanks, exhaust systems and batteries. This means that body assemblies can be pre-manufactured and fitted more quickly. The result is reduced costs through shorter downtime at the bodybuilder’s workshop. It also ensures that the frame’s corrosion protection is not damaged. These are the factors that maximise a truck’s service life.

The optional chassis protective sealant provides effective corrosion protection for the chassis and frame attachments. The transparent protective film enables you to make a visual inspection of the metal surface and read model plates.

The standard-specification bodybuilder interface means easy body installation. Doing away with the need for time-consuming cable routing, it provides a means of connecting all electrical systems quickly and easily.
