In the world of general haulage, there is a range of different vehicles   to suit every application. When it is required to protect a load against the elements (or hide it from prying eyes), a curtainsider trailer is often the go-to option.

A curtainsider – sometimes called a Tautliner or Euroliner – has curtain sides that can be opened to provide easy access for loading and unloading.

Once the trailer is loaded, the curtains are closed and secured in place. This creates a visual barrier and a protective shield around the load.

The old technique – still in common usage – is sheeting the load on a flatbed trailer with tarpaulins. The tarpaulin is secured with ropes under tension or ratchet straps.
