What are Curtainsiders and how does our PVC Pelmet Section benefit them?
13/10/2017

Curtainsiders are trucks with a removable side curtain that give full reliable access to the content of the truck without having to underload the entire vehicle. These vehicles are ideally suited when access to one section of the load is required without exposing or disturbing the entire load. Also these types of lorries don’t require as much labour intensive work when loading and unloading.

These types of vehicles are ideally suited for multi-point drops.

Why does our PVC Pelmet benefit Curtainsiders? Our pelmet fits securely to the top and bottom of the curtain mechanism, and have a number of features. These features include:

Protect your roller mechanisms Our pelmet protects the mechanisms which allow the curtain to move back and forth. This allows these parts to last longer and to keep costs and maintenance to a minimum.

Alongside this, as the rollers are shielded it means that they don't require any additional maintenance to the track to ensure a smooth operation of the curtain.

Provides a strong weather seal As our PVC pelmet is 100% waterproof it repells water and prevents water ingress and moisture from leaking into the load area, allowing protection of the cargo from the elements during transportation.

Will not crack under cold temperatures Our Pelmet is cold rated for temperatures as low as -70°C and will not crack under extreme temperatures.

Provides a streamlined look Our pelmet section allows a more streamlined look and feel to the vehicle, which will help to create an enhanced first impression to customers.

Can be provided in different colours Our pelmet is manufactured in the UK and can be produced in stock standard black and white - or bespoke manufactured - in a range of colours to suit your corporate branding and truck colour.
