The Erdman High Speed Dura line produces insulating glass vertically and  
in a fashion that the company says nearly doubles the speed of traditional  
vertical lines. Introduced last year, the High Speed Dura is first for the line’s  
vertical automation, and is designed to eliminate the need to tip a unit during  
the production sequence, saving time, eliminating injury potential, and mini-

Strap In for the Ride  
The Strap-In glass rack by  
MyGlassTruck can be installed  
temporarily in any box truck for  
occasional or overflow glass deliveries.  
When not in use, the rack can be  
removed and stored quickly. Full-  
length horizontal and vertical rubber  
padding protects glass, and E-track is  
included so cargo straps can be used  
to secure glass in place. The glass  
racks are available in 6-, 8- and 10-foot  
lengths with heights of 6, 7, and 8 feet.  
Unruh Introduces New  
Self-Leveling Jacks  
Unruh Fab has custom-built a  
self-leveling, 23-foot stainless steel  
truck body on a Freightliner M2 Chas-  
sis.The project was designed for a cus-  
tomer who  
wanted to  
improve the  
safety of load-  
ing and unloading glass when parked  
on an uneven surface.  
The self-leveling system has four  
electric-over-hydraulic leveling jacks  
that Unruh says will level the truck  
with the touch of a button.
