Strick Trailers announced the Kemlite brand extended weathering translucent roof as its standard translucent roof.

The roof features an enhanced tear-resistant fabric and is one of several translucent roof solutions offered by Crane Composites, according to Monroe, Ind.-based Strick.

“When a supplier approaches us with a new or enhanced offering, we listen. When that technology fits with Strick’s product, and makes sense for our customers, we seize the opportunity,” said Justin Bell, Strick’s director of engineering.

According to Channahon, Ill.-based Crane, its translucent roof’s ultramarine blue tint provides light transmission while limiting heat gain in the trailer, improving safety and productivity for loading and unloading cargo. — Transport Topics
