Q: Why do I need QuickSilver?
You need QuickSilver to grow your top line. Since QuickSilver is engineered to be super slick you can haul more loads per day, year round, with less chance of a turnover and less wear and tear on your truck’s brakes and hydraulics system. QuickSilver is also engineered to be highly abrasion resistant so it outwears steel and aluminum protecting your investment and making it last longer. QuickSilver also weighs less than both steel and aluminum. More loads per day with fewer problems mean more money in your pocket.

Q: How does a QuickSilver floor liner install?
QuickSilver has a quick and easy installation system. A typical QuickSilver liner is installed with a handful of fasteners at the front of the dump body and leading edge protector along both sidewalls. The leading edge protector serves a dual purpose. First, it acts as guide for the QuickSilver material, allowing for thermal expansion and contraction. Second, it prevents aggregate from getting underneath the liner as this can severely affect its performance. You can install QuickSilver yourself with basic shop tools using our easy-to-follow installation guide or see a nearby QuickSilver Specialty Distributor.

Depending on the condition of the truck, a typical QuickSilver floor installation takes 8 to 10 man-hours. With most installations, the dump truck is down for only a day.
