“We are pleased to partner with Kinedyne, a long-time supplier of Utility, to make the Kin-Sider our new standard trailer curtain. Our customers will find that its high-quality welded and lighter weight design makes the curtain easier to open and close,” said Steve Bennett, Vice President of Utility Trailer Manufacturing Co. “The Kin-Sider features an easy-to-use buckle and hook assembly that utilizes a ‘pull-to-release’ action instead of a push-to-release buckle method. Users will find this system much easier to use, especially in winter conditions”

The curtain is made of a durable, flame-retardant PVC-laminated polyester substrate material. The tensioning system on the Tautliner with Kin-Sider curtain provides a secure, weather tight fit. Curtain interior contains sonically welded PVC-saturated polyester reinforcement straps. High quality digital graphics can be applied as an option and full digital graphics come with an exclusive anti-graffiti coating, which is resistant to foreign agents such as spray paint. Standard curtains are white but are also available in a number of colors. For more information, contact your local Utility dealership.
