What is Curtainside?

A curtainside van is basically a dropside van with an upper structure mounted to it with a tarping system. In addition to wide opening, full-height rear doors, the heavy-duty PVC curtains fitted to both sides of the body can be positioned to make it easy to load the front or rear of the load space, by forklift, from either side. Curtain motion is, of course, bi-directional, sliding easily front-to-back or back-to-front, depending on the portion of the curtain side body you need to reach. This greatly facilitates backhauls and partial loads by providing access to any freight anywhere in the truck.

Aluminium side pillars also slide in an overhead channel and can be unlocked and moved out of the way to facilitate totally unobstructed, front-to-back side access, then repositioned and locked in place for optimum support. When closed, the side curtains are tensioned both horizontally and vertically to provide a taut, weather-tight body side. If easy loading from either side by a forklift is a priority, the curtain-side trailer is a user-friendly option.

The Curtainside trailer body is built using similar construction methods to the Luton and Box bodies in the range. Composite body panels are fitted to a galvanised steel and aluminium frame for durability and optimum payload. The standard payload can be boosted by up to 80kgs by choosing the optional lightweight curtain trailer construction. The body can be loaded from the rear through the full height and width GRP “barn doors”, equipped with externally mounted locks, as well as from either side.
