Nordisk AluLite AKE (LD3)

Nordisk AluLite AKE (LD3)

At only 65 kg the Nordisk AluLite is probably the lightest aluminium AKE container available today. Strong, sturdy yet lightweight, the Nordisk AluLite helps airlines that prefer aluminium over composite to reduce fuel consumption and emission.

The AluLite is also awailable with metal (solid) door, and for the first time in history you can now get a LD3 with solid door that weighs as little as 77 kg!  

Nordisk = durable designs
Nordisk's extensive ULD design experience is recognized by our hundreds of satisfied customers around the world. A specially designed single extrusion frame in high strength 7000 series alloy, is highly resistant to racking. Our alloy self-hardens after heating, allowing easy and cost effective repairs by heat straightening or welding.
