Chassis Frame Assembly - LL1896110 - Richards
All Richards chassis are manufactured in the UK, using locally sourced materials and locally based machine shops. They are located close to the steel city, Sheffield, and therefore optimise the use of local steel, ensuring that all their chassis are formed from 2.5mm British steel which are all galvanised as standard.
All profiling is done 'in house' using their own laser machine, enabling them to have greater control over the quality of parts used and the materials that they are formed from. The chassis are made using 2.5mm side rails which are 25% heavier than the standard 2.0mm rails. Overall this gives a small increase in the vehicle weight but has a massive effect on the long term durability of the chassis.
Bolt on crossmembers are not supplied with Richards chassis.
