Trailer Curtain Systems

Kinedyne’s Kin-Sider and Kin-Slider curtain-side solutions feature weather-tight designs, heavy-duty rollers, and effectively durable vinyl, all finished with optional high-resolution printing... and an exclusive coating that resists graffiti, UV rays, and biological activity. While the Kin-Sider employs familiar fasteners at the bottom of the curtain side, the Kin-Slider features a revolutionary latching approach that enables the curtain to be effortlessly opened and closed within just 30 seconds.

When we designed our Kin-Sider and Kin-Slider Curtain Systems, we focused on addressing all the common weaknesses that plague current curtain-side systems, such as fungal growth, graphic fading, moisture intrusion, single-point latching, and mechanical failure. Through the use of exclusive materials, proprietary finishes, advanced processes, and clever engineering, we engineered out the shortcomings of those other systems and engineered in a higher degree of performance at every level.

Both of our systems are manufactured with high-strength aluminum, cast bronze, high-quality rubber seals, and Kin-Sider’s curtain rollers are made with rugged N6 nylon covers over sealed bearings, offering structural and mechanical soundness. The curtains are made with a high-tenacity, flame-retardant, PVC-laminated polyester substrate and have an operating temperature rating of between 158 degrees Fahrenheit (70 Celsius) and -22 degrees Fahrenheit (-30 Celsius). When closed, the Kin-Sider and Kin-Slider systems are hermetically sealed, creating airtight protection against moisture.

The systems feature standard white curtains, but there are also a variety of colors to choose from, and vinyl and screen-printed graphics can be applied to this base curtain material. However, Kinedyne can apply graphics to enhanced curtain-side material using sophisticated digital printing technology capable of achieving resolutions of 360 dots per square inch. Printed graphic applications are covered with an anti-graffiti coating, which also protects image quality and brand integrity against UV rays and fungal growth.

Maintenance is easy as the systems are safe to be cleaned at any standard commercial truck wash. If Kinedyne’s multipurpose coating is added, foreign agents can be removed with just water within 24 hours. After 24 hours, graffiti and the like can be removed from the curtain side using alcohol or petroleum distillates. The process can be repeated up to 400 times with no visible impact on graphic appearance.

Our Curtain Systems can be used with trailers transporting vehicles, bagged goods, drywall, landscaping equipment, lumber, racked goods, windows, and so, so much more. Nearly any kind of job that needs sideloading is made a lot easier with the durability and speed of our Kin-Sider and our Kin-Slider.

Kin-Sider

Kin-Sider Traditional curtain-side systems and rear-access roll-up doors can be slow and laborious, offering more problems than solutions. Instead, Kinedyne focuses on solutions rather than problems with our Kin-Sider Heavy-Duty Curtain-Side Vehicle System. The Kin-Sider utilizes very easy-to-use pull-to-release Overcenter Buckle and Rave Hook web assemblies instead of a push-to-release method of buckling. These buckles are located at the bottom of vertical reinforcements, so that they remain within easy reach at all times.

Operating the Kin-Sider is incredibly simple and uses a tensioning mechanism that promotes a weather-tight fit in order to keep everything within the trailer effectively sealed off from moisture and other damaging elements. Rather than waste a lot of energy opening those extra-heavy roll-up doors, the Kin-Sider offers quick and convenient access that saves on labor.

The Kin-Sider can be used with 48’ to 53’ trucks, drop-deck trucks, pup trucks, vehicle carrier trucks, box trucks, and glass trucks.

Kin-Slider

Kin-Slider The Kin-Slider 30-Second Curtain-Side Vehicle System reduces several hours of time and labor into just minutes at a time, saving operators a significant amount of effort that can be otherwise spent increasing profits.

Traditional curtain-side systems take time to open and close. Equipped with a unique full length, vertical, multi-latch closure system, it only takes 30 seconds to fully open and fully close the Kin-Slider. This is especially helpful for operators who need to make frequent stops and need to constantly load and unload their cargo.

Heavy roll-up aluminum doors create additional weight, and cargo space is lost due to the doors rolling up into the trailer. Lightweight and much more flexible, the Kin-Slider weighs up to 1,000 pounds less than a roll-up system and uses up to 111 cubic feet less space. That means more room for cargo, which means more deliveries, which means increased revenue.

The Kin-Slider can be used with pup trucks, box trucks, glass trucks, and beverage trucks to help store and transport a wide variety of cargo.
