Heavy Truck Cab Guards

What are heavy truck cab guards?


Cab guards or headache racks are required as front-end structures on 18-wheelers that pull flat beds, trailers and log trailers. Cab guards are to prevent shifting cargo from contacting the cab of heavy trucks.

What are the dangers associated with heavy truck cab guards?


Many cab guards are designed of welded heat treated aluminum which results in a weakening of the cab guard over time. The weakening of the cab guard due to fatigue stress is relatively unknown to drivers.

Our firm has discovered that many welding requirements established by national organizations are not followed by cab guard manufacturers. The failure to follow such guidelines result in poor welds, poor quality control, and poorly designed cab guards for their intended purpose of protecting truck occupants.
