WEATHER GUARD® Announces New Hi-Side Truck Box

Crystal Lake, IL – March 6, 2012Knaack LLC and WEATHER GUARD® Truck Equipment announces re-designed Hi-Side Truck Boxes. New features of the Hi-Side product line deliver improved security, durability, and organizational solutions for construction, municipal and field service professionals that require frequent and easy access to valuable tools and equipment, while keeping the truck bed open for supplies.

One of the most important new features on the new Hi-Sides is a WEATHER GUARD® exclusive gutter design that channels rain and snow off the box to keep its contents dry.  Along with the full-weather seal, this new gutter design vastly improves weather resistance. In addition, new security enhancements include a new Drill-Resistant Lock Core, which further protects against theft and vandalism. An Attachment Point has been added to the rear of each box to secure or lock down tools and supplies in the truck bed. Hi-Side organization is improved with the addition of a top-mounted, Removable Parts Bin, to keep small parts such as fasteners and components organized inside the box. And productivity is enhanced with adjustable Tool-Less Quick-Release doors that open from 90 degrees to 180 degrees for unrestricted access to tools and equipment.  Heavy-duty stainless steel aircraft-type cables quickly and easily unhook with QuickClips with no tools required.  This feature is especially helpful to contractors stretching to reach up into their Hi-Sides boxes on taller, heavy-duty vehicles.

Existing features of WEATHER GUARD® Hi-Side Truck boxes include a heavy-duty three-point latching system for theft resistance, large stainless steel D-Handles for easy opening, and extra-wide picture frame opening for easy access of larger tools and supplies. Additionally, Hi-Sides feature quick installation with adjustable leg mounting, customizable mounting points to maximize bed space. Further, All Hi-Sides are constructed of heavy-duty steel or diamond plate aluminum, with ARMOR TUF® powder coat paint in either Brite White (steel only), Black or Clear (aluminum only).  All WEATHER GUARD® Hi-Sides are backed by an exclusive Limited Lifetime Warranty. 

“The new Hi-Side boxes bring so many new features and enhancements like the exclusive gutter design to an already industry-leading product line,” said Mike Sover, Senior Product Manager for WEATHER GUARD® Truck Products. “Truck storage is all about security, organization and productivity and WEATHER GUARD® Hi-Sides deliver worry-free performance that typically outlast the truck.”

Hi-Sides are available in a variety of sizes to fit most truck makes and models, from 45-1/2” to 96-1/4” in length, and 5.6 to 11.8 cubic feet of capacity. Larger Super-Sides add 2” in height and 3” in depth, and 7.7 to 15.2 cubic feet of capacity. A Steel Jumbo Super-Side is available with 24” height and a whopping 21.4 cubic feet of capacity. Hi-Sides can fit almost any configuration imaginable with quick installation via adjustable leg mounts. Accessories include an adjustable shelf and a parts cabinet.
