Utility Selects New Curtain for Trailers

Utility Trailer Manufacturing Co. announced the Kin-Sider from Kinedyne will be the new standard curtain installed on Utility’s Tautliner curtain-sided trailers.

“We are pleased to partner with Kinedyne, a longtime supplier of Utility, to make the Kin-Sider our new standard trailer curtain,” Utility Vice President Steve Bennett said. “Our customers will find that its high-quality welded and lighter-weight design makes the curtain easier to open and close.”

“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,” he said.

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, according to City of Industry, Calif.-based Utility.

Utility also manufactures refrigerated trailers, dry freight vans and flatbeds.
