"Adding the hinge is an expense that some fleets just do not need due to the nature of their particular transport," explained Reiman. "The Basic Line is still the same superior flexible, durable product as our original hinged product, it just doesn't have the hinge. Those fleets with less experienced drivers, steep loading docks and unpredictable or extreme conditions will be encouraged to use our original hinged design. Those with less extreme conditions will find the Basic Line a more cost effective solution since both lines generate the same fuel savings."
