How Does it Work?

The steps involved in the Security Divider process are illustrated below.

The Shipper loads freight into the nose of a deck trailer.

A deck bar is dropped in front of the freight. Any empty space can be filled by air bags. 

The security divider wall is then installed in front of the deck bar. 

Straps are used to secure the divider wall in place.

A seal is put through the handles of the security divider wall for transit to the destination. 

At the time of delivery, the seal is cut and removed in the presence of the consignee.
