Vari-Bodies

Altec Astoria’s VARI-BODY provides great flexibility, due to a unique molding system that is adjustable to any body length. It is designed for aerial or crane mounts. Compartment depths can be up to 24”; side compartment height is 48”. The low-maintenance gel-coat finish is resistant to rust, chemicals and peeling. Doors are double laminated, reinforced and keyed alike. They are tough, warp-resistant and tight sealing due to automotive bulb gasket seals. The Astoria hinge is heavy-duty stainless steel with steel pin and nylon bushings, and custom engineered for superior strength. We use stainless steel rotary two-stage door latches. You may customize with a variety of shelving and other options. Full height bulkheads separating compartments add strength and body integrity. Molded fiberglass side compartments are built with heavy-duty reinforcement in all stress areas. Each side compartment is mounted separately for easy repair or replacement. Recessed lighting is factory installed, meeting FMVSS 108 standards.

It is strength plus the lowest weight possible that makes the VARI-BODY a superior choice. The VARI-BODY begins providing big returns on your investment because you’ll see more durability, less costly re-imaging, reduced truck maintenance and lower fuel costs.
