Sleeper vs. Bridge: Evidence of Bolt’s Superior Construction

On March 15, 2014, an expediter team driver hit a low clearance bridge causing significant damage to their truck. We believe the photos of this accident demonstrate a unique view of the superior strength and safety of a Bolt Custom Sleeper. We’re proud of the fact that Bolt sleepers are the only ones on the road with aluminum interior cabinets which interconnect with one another and the sleeper’s exterior walls for the ultimate in durability.

As you can see, roof damage to this truck bent the sleeper walls, but they did not break, nor did any cabinets disconnect, and the team was able to drive back from the accident scene in Virginia to Fort Wayne, Ind., for repair at Bolt.

Do not accept the alternative – you deserve to be in a Bolt.
