Trans BC Freightways has 48 foot trailers in this design, the top of the trailer is solid, and some even have a regular door on the rear. It is the sides of this trailer that make the difference. Each wall is actually a tarp material that can creates a curtain that can be securely fastened to the frame of the deck, creating a load bearing wall.
China Top/Curtain Sider trailers can be loaded or unloaded easily from the sides, as only one curtain at a time can be unfastened if needed. If a driver is making multiple short trips in one day, both curtains can fastened open. As no support posts are required, any loading can be done in a timely fashion.
As a trucking company, TBC appreciate how a variety of trailers can help to speed up the loading and unloading process and how they are unique to certain types of freight.
For certain loads, no conventional semi-trailer beats the open access of a flatbed. However, the bad news about flatbeds can be expressed in two words: the tarp. Many flatbed loads require tarping for protection from the elements as well as security.
The curtain side trailer combine the advantages of a flatbed with the covering and containment benefits of an enclosed trailer. Consisting of durable yet flexible PVC-coated vinyl side curtains which can be retracted from either the front or rear of the trailer, and van-style swinging rear doors, a curtainside totally encloses the load for weatherproof protection and security.
