This Load-Lid has a Dynamic load rating of 200kgs and a static load rating of 400kg.
The dynamic load rating refers to the amount of load you can safely carry when you need to stop quickly at open road speeds – like an accident.
Dynamic load ratings are calculated by subjecting the hard lid to a series of formulated tests that represent real life: twisting, pulling, pushing and anything in between!
Typically, a dynamic load rating will be a lot lower than a static rating, BUT it would have been tested at weights a lot higher than the static rating to pass the dynamic test.
Hard-working tradies and adventurers require tough gear that works on and off the job site!
The Utemaster Load-Lid is built tough - out of a 1-piece aluminium treadplate sheet that has a base thickness of 3mm.
The construction is similar to an aircraft and incorporates up to 7 meters of internal bracing and heavy-duty hardware which is bonded with a glue and then riveted together, meaning there are no shortcuts on strength.

Ute’s are designed to take a beating, so your hard lid should too!
Roller shutters are prone to jamming their fragile mechanisms on sand and dust.
A Utemaster Load-Lid™ is built tough so you can take it everywhere you go without having to worry about whether it will take the beating!
The loss of tools or adventure gear due to theft is not only a massive inconvenience, it’s expensive too!
The Load-Lid has catches on both sides so that when the lid is locked, it’s really hard to pry open.
The tailgate locking plate also prevents your tailgate from being opened when the lid is shut. Some vehicles now come standard with a central locking tailgate, but if you forget to lock the ute, this locking plate can save your day. However, if you require you can remove it.
You can also purchase an optional central locking accessory, which allows you to lock and unlock your Load-Lid using your car key remote.
Some tub covers are generic - designed to work on multiple utes.
This is more of a convenience to the retailer than the person who’s going to own it. A generic fit can have water tightness issues and just look out of place on the vehicle.
Utemaster use 3D scanning to tailor each Load-Lid to each specific ute, so there’s a perfect fit every time!
The Utemaster Load-Lid comes in a tough Oasis Black powder coat, this is a lot more durable than paint because it’s baked on. The black finish matches the accents of the vehicle and finishes off the tough look.
If you're in the trades you'll understand that good quality tools are worth their weight in gold!
Quality gear means fewer breakdowns and more time getting the job done.
Investing in a quality ute setup is no different, the Utemaster Load-Lid has been tried, tested and thrashed by tradies in the toughest environments.
Whether you're using it to secure your tools or take a load on top, the Load-Lid will live up to your demands.
Roller shutters have a reputation for being hard to seal because of their intricate mechanics, but the Load-Lid has one solid aluminium shell - so it’s far easier to seal and keep your gear dry!
The Load-Lid has a full bulb seal which runs right around the top of the tub. This stops water from getting in and keeps everything dry!
On the sports bar Load-Lid there are also built-in rain channels, these redirect the water around your sports bar and over the edge of the tub.
At the front of the Load-Lid is a weather seal preventing water from running into your tub when the lid is opened. On some models such as the Next-Gen Ranger and Amarok, Utemaster also supply additional sealing kits to seal factory holes.
You can put a load directly onto the aluminium treadplate surface. Aluminium is very hard wearing and the Load-Lid™ comes standard coated in a teflon-based matte black powdercoat. Some companies claim their roller covers or plastic lids have a load rating, but be aware that just because someone can stand on it while the vehicle is parked doesn’t mean it can carry a load.
With the Load-Lid™ there are no intrusions below the top edge of your tub. The unique raised edge profile also adds a staunch appearance, improves rigidity and reduces water pooling. The easiest way to work out what will fit under the Load-Lid (for example a fridge) is to measure from the bottom of the tub to the top edge of the tub.
The Load-Lid™ can easily be removed by undoing the x4 wing bolts holding it in place. This can be done in a matter of minutes and all you'll need is a mate to help lift it off. This gives you the space you'll need to carry objects such as a quad bike in your wellside.
