The Advantages Of Aluminum Ute Trays: Durability & Versatility

For tradespeople who need to jump between multiple worksites while carrying a storeroom of equipment and people hitting the open road on weekend-long fishing trips, a custom ute tray is your hardest working partner on the road.

But when it comes to kitting your utility vehicle with the right tray, your choice of material can make a significant difference to how it performs. Need a reason why an aluminium ute tray should be your model of choice? Our blog lists the many advantages of aluminium and, for some, why it’s a more practical solution than custom steel ute trays.

Aluminium is lightweight yet incredibly durable

Aluminium is renowned for its exceptional strength-to-weight ratio, weighing up to three times less than steel constructions. With a lighter build that can contribute to greater fuel efficiency and reduce the pressure on your truck’s engine, it also expands your vehicle’s hauling capacity.

By not having to allocate weight to support the tray, you can utilise more of your payload’s capabilities when you have one of the best aluminium ute trays in Victoria from bUTE Total Tray Solutions.

They’re designed for Aussie roads

Whether you’re a farmer, tradesman or someone who loves going off-road, aluminium ute trays are naturally corrosion-resistant, enabling them to perform in any environment, rain, hail or shine. Whether you stick to metro centres or have the luck to drive through unsealed roads, you can enjoy the confidence knowing your unit is built tough to give you the freedom to drive in any terrain and weather, handle heavy workloads and reduce downtime.

Aluminium custom ute trays can be endlessly customised

Opting for aluminium custom ute trays offers a high degree of customisation, allowing you to tailor your tray to your specific needs. Not only are they seamlessly built to fit your car, but they can be more easily modified to relocate rear sensors and cameras and incorporate other accessories like under-tray storage drawers, poly water tanks, tie-down points and connections that perfectly align with removable canopies.

With a responsive and flexible build that reflects how you like to work and play, aluminium trays can be crafted to accommodate everything you need to organise your gear for easy access.

Enjoy easy maintenance

Maintaining an aluminium ute tray is a breeze. It requires minimal upkeep, cleaning is a straightforward process and doesn’t require TLC like steel options. Most often, brushing debris with a broom and washing it with a mild detergent and water is all you need.

On the other hand, steel ute trays are prone to rust, affecting their structural integrity and roadworthiness over time if you don’t keep to scheduled painting and anti-rust treatments.
