Drake's standard bodies use prepainted aluminum sheets that brace between the upper and lower rail and are supported by 2" aluminum Z-posts spaced every foot. These sheets can be secured using either specialized aluminum glue, or aluminum rivets. The sheets have a clear surface that is easily painted and perfect for decals of whatever you might desire. The coating also reduces the general wear and tear brought about by constant travel.
FRP Wall Sheets
FRP or Fiberglass Reinforced Plywood, is an excellent material choice. Only one layer is required which allows more inside space in the box.
FRP sheets have the inherent flexibility of plywood and the toughness of fiberglass which results in a scratch resistant surface that maintains strength under pressure.
As advertising space an FRP exterior is unparalleled. As one solid sheet the surface is uninterrupted to suit decals of any size without the mar of seams that other styles demonstrate.
