VBG and Fontaine Products
Newbridge Metal Products are the sole Irish distributor of VBG products. The world leader in the development of innovative and reliable and secure coupling systems. Over the years VBG have built up an in-depth understanding of the transport industry to provide it with continuously evolving solutions - for example, 57.5mm standard, rotating bolt, air assisted coupling and new MFC connector.
As the Irish arm of the largest Fifthwheel manufacturer in the world Newbridge Metal Products/Fontaine Fifth Wheel provide a specialist fifth wheel and trailer coupling solution.
Fontaine’s patented fifth wheel Tech-Lock system prevents ‘high hitching’ and is designed to stop miss coupling and significantly reduce the risk of a dropped trailer.
Along with the Tech-Lock system, Fontaine offers a two position slider which eliminates the need for split coupling.
The Tech-Lock system is recognised by major fleets as a contributing safety feature. Extended handles are offered to make it easier for the driver to fit the safety clip and improves the visibility of the clip to highlight when it is not fitted correctly.
