Replacing side curtains

Replacing or buying new side curtains

Replacing a side curtain or buying a new one? Anything is possible. Both for new curtainsiders and used trailers, we supply side curtains that are fully custom-made. We do this based on the production data or recent measurement data of the trailer. We can take care of everything from A-Z: from printing to the delivery of a high-quality side curtains for your trailer. Production takes place in our own factory, where we use state-of-the-art equipment for converting and printing.

On average, a side curtain tarpaulin lasts 7 years. After that, the truck tarpaulin starts to show signs of use and is no longer a representative business card of your company. When it comes to replacing tarpaulins or rebranding an entire fleet, we will be happy to discuss the options with you. As the most progressive tarpaulin manufacturer in the transport industry, we can always offer you a tarpaulin solution that meets your needs. This way, the tarpaulins can last for years again!


It’s all in the details

The finishing of our products is considered to be the best in the industry. All side curtains come as standard with finishing:

  • Reflection tape below and corners
  • 3 Pillar reinforcements
  • Top and Bottom Corner Reinforcements
  • Top water barrier
  • Front and Rear keder (high frequency) welded
  • Pallet reinforcement until buckle line 

As we’ve been doing so for over 5 decades.

Care & Maintenance

Care & Maintenance

It may happen that due to theft, storm or an accident your tarpaulin is damaged. Roland will help you quickly repair small damages. With our strong network in the region, we are able to help our customers out when needed. We strongly advice to not wait with any damages occurred to prevent it from ripping out. 

To keep you side curtain in its best condition, curtainsider trailers should be cleaned using hot soapy water preferably with a hose and soft brush. The use of a high pressure water is NOT recommended as this can affect the lacquer coating on the PVC exposing the pores to the elements. This is especially important if you have invested in having your curtain sign written and clear coated.
