Carbon Fibre Floor Trays

The main reason for using a carbon fibre floor tray is to save weight, however by using the different rigidity specifications available performance differences can be observed and used to your advantage.

Aluminum floor trays weigh 1100 gm on average, by comparison a Tillett Carbon fibre floor tray can weigh as little as 330 gm and it will still be less likely to crack than the aluminium version.

Changing the floor tray to save weight must be done with careful consideration, as a change to the rigidity of the tray could have a noticeable effect on handling. This is why we have developed three rigidities. Get the correct rigidity and it will help the handling and lower your lap times. Use the Standard Carbon tray to get a rigidity which is comparable to the flexibility of aluminum floor trays found on most makes of karts.

Our special manufacturing process that makes these trays gives two glossy, easy to clean surfaces and an almost perfect consolidation of the materials used.

Quality and looks are commonly used reasons for using the Carbon trays. They are made using a special chequered weave Carbon which increases rigidity over normal twill weave fibre and these are placed either side of a honeycomb centre to save weight.

When ordering a floor tray, customers may need to supply a paper pattern with the outline of the shape, this depends on the popularity of the chassis. The split level trays for the latest models of Birel have to be made by hand which means that unlike other models the trays will only have one glossy side.
