A curtain-side van looks like a standard dry freight trailer but loads like a platform. As the name suggests, the side of the van is usually covered by a canvas locked by several fastenings at the bottom. The curtain side enables side loading and obviously saves time. It seems that fewer panels are needed in curtain vans. Yes, paneling will focus more on the roof, floor, and rear side if it meets these trucks. However, you can also install moving doors on the right and left instead of a pure curtain. It also improves safety once the goods fall down.
TOPOLO provides lightweight solutions for side curtain vans. Our PP honeycomb sandwich panel can greatly reduce the weight of the whole vehicle. The panel skin is made of special composite material, much stronger than FRP panels.
