Curtainsiders and Load Restraints 

It is important to use the correct type of vehicle when transporting goods. Curtainside trucks are essentially flatbed vehicles. This can combine certain advantages when transporting specific loads. Curtainside trailers can be single or double decks and are ultimately flatbed trailers. They have protection from weather as large curtains cover goods. The curtains are designed to protect while adding very little excess weight. They offer protection in all weather conditions meaning that goods have the protection of a dry van, the space of a flat deck and quick, easy loading and unloading. All positive attributes when adhering to a shipping schedule.

The design allows the canvas curtains to be pulled back to allow loads to be placed inside. This means that it has easy accessibility. It is also a secure dry storage space where the load will safely make it’s journey. Most trailer floors are made of wood or with wood and steel beams adjacent to the wood offering protection against wear and tear. The steel can also offer protection against weather. It is common to find checker plates at the back end of a trailer. This offers extra protection as this is an area. Vehicles that can be exposed to more water from the rear wheels so these plates offer protection.
