Welcome to FELK ENGINEERING – TRAILER SPECIALIST & MANUFACTURER, servicing Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Hunter Region & NSW. 100% Australian owned and operated family business with all trailers built onsite at our Warners Bay factory in NSW.
Felk Engineering is widely recognised as one of Australia’s leading manufacturers of quality trailers. Our Australian steel, heavy duty hot dipped galvanised trailers, means you are purchasing a trailer that will go the distance and is build to last.
Our range includes: Boat trailers, Box trailers, Yatch trailers, Jet ski trailers, Plant trailers, Advertising trailers, Custom design trailers, Tilt trailers, Gypsy trailers and Caged trailers just to name a few. Our stock standard trailers have been RMS certified, which means they have been manufactured to Australian Standards to suit Australian roads.
Our Australian made Aluminium Boat Trailers have the added benefit of superior corrosion resistance, therefore further dramatically increasing the life span of the trailer.
|THE FELK DIFFERENCE||VERSUS|
|MANUFACTURER||At FELK Engineering you will be dealing directly with the staff and company that designs and manufactures the trailer – not a sales team. Our design and structural engineer has been developing trailers for Australian roads for over 40 years, is an RMS safety inspector and a qualified motor vehicle body builder.|
|RETAILER||Unfortunately with most other companies you will be dealing with a sales representative who has limited knowledge in structural engineering. Also, not being a manufacturer means that often whatever they have in stock is being sold, and not necessarily the most suitable option for the customer.|
|AUSTRALIAN STEEL||FELK Engineering only use Australian steel that is manufactured to Australian standards therefore providing consistency of quality and premium strength.|
|IMPORTED STEEL||Imported steel is inexpensive but is not held to the same quality control regulations as the Australian option. The manufacturing process is inconsistent giving opportunity for defects and steel weakness.|
|NEW WHEELS||FELK Engineering provides brand new light truck tyres with galvanised steel rims as standard on all their trailers. New trailers need new wheels.|
|SECOND HAND||Most second hand tyres are already approaching their end of life and are not safe for use on the road.|
|AUSTRALIAN MADE||FELK Engineering designs and manufacturers all our products to Australian standards – right here at our Warners Bay factory. We are a family business that takes pride in our customer service and premium products.|
|MADE OVERSEAS||Trailers made overseas are not built to the same high quality control standards of Australia.|
|HOT DIPPED GALVANISED||At Felk Engineering our products are hot dipped galvanised, giving superior longevity than any other coating. The hot dipped galvanising process covers the entire surface (inside and out) in a protective coating.|
|PAINTED/POWDER COATED||Painted and powder coated trailers will not last as long as they are subject to stone chips and scratches which will expose the steel and commence the rusting process. These coatings will not coat the internal surfaces of hollow sections, therefore will lead to rusting.|
|BOX TRAILERS CHASSIS RAILS||FELK Engineering uses 5mm steel to give superior strength to all anchor points where the springs, axles and mudguard brackets attach. Heavier duty, means a harder working trailer.|
|2.5-3MM||A trailer made with a thickness of only 2.5-3.00mm is 40% weaker than FELK standard trailers.|
|8MM-LEAF SPRINGS||At FELK we use 8mm leaf springs making your suspension more durable, ridged and stronger.|
|6MM-SPRINGS||Leaf springs at only 6mm in thickness are less durable and will cause your suspension to ‘sag’ under heavy loads and may bend the main leaf when reversing up gutters.|
|NON GALVANISED SPRINGS||At FELK we do NOT use galvanised springs as the acid treatment in the galvanising process crystallises the outer layer of the spring surface causing failure of the part. Australian standards do allow galvanised springs, however for safety, we follow the manufacturing standard of the rest of the western world where these are banned.|
|GALVANISED SPRINGS||Trailers that use galvanised springs are not safe and have a high failure rate.|
WHAT OUR CUSTOMER’S SAY
Really happy with my purchase of the ‘little boat trailer’, your prompt answers to initial enquiries and sales service.
Tweaked a few small adjustments to suit my boat shape and have taken for a couple of local trips to get the boat in the water…..and feel very confident to tow anywhere !
All credit to you guys for building a high quality, reliable “AUSTRALIAN MADE’ product, AND by a family owned business.
Will recommend you guys any time !
I bought a set of 4 leaf springs for my box trailer last week. 1050 KG of wood in the trailer and the springs hardly went down at all!!! I am very impressed.
