Curtainsiders have made the transportation and haulage of cargo far more efficient. Named for the taut lining around the trailer instead of a hard7 shell, the curtainsider provides the added protection of a dry van with the option to load and unload from the vehicle’s side.

Load restraint on curtainsiders and other goods vehicles is monitored and enforced by over 300 trained roadside inspectors who patrol our roads. This requires everyone involved with the loading and unloading of trailers to be aware of their responsibility in ensuring the safety of the load for transport.

This includes making sure that all operatives involved are safe, as well as ensuring the load itself has been effectively and sufficiently restrained. Operative safety demands the utmost importance when dealing with curtainside trailers, as they offer no protection from falls during the loading and unloading process.
