Dabema is a quite light, very durable hardwood type with high resistance to wear. This wood type comes from West Africa and has been used for many years in heavy-duty open trailers – often for thicker floors. This hardwood type has particularly been used in France for a long time.
Dabema is less stable than our other woods for open trailers, but ATC has broad and positive experience of processing and testing this wood type. We will also be pleased to advise you on the proper installation of this wood type.
Good to know: Dabema is our most inexpensive wood type.

A solid, honest product
Thinking and acting sustainably is important at ATC. You can see that by our procedure and in our products. We have already been working with wooden materials for more than 25 years and we want to carry on doing so for a long time to come. This is why we take our wood from sustainably managed forests. We can also check that ourselves because we import ourselves.
With a floor from ATC you are certain that you have certified wood in your bodywork or trailer. And wood of the highest standard and quality to boot. ATC Trailer Floors is certified according to the standards and principles of the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC-C012809).
