Utility standardizes Kin-Sider for curtainsided trailers

Utility Trailer Manufacturing Company recently made Kinedyne’s Kin-Sider the new standard curtain on Utility’s Tautliner curtainsided trailers.

“We are pleased to partner with Kinedyne, a long-time supplier of Utility, to make the Kin-Sider our new standard trailer curtain,” said Steve Bennett, vice president of Utility Trailer, which manufactures refrigerated and curtainsided trailers, dry freight vans and flatbeds.

“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.”

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. Curtain interior contains sonically welded PVC-saturated polyester reinforcement straps.


High-quality digital graphics are optional and full digital graphics come with an exclusive anti-graffiti coating, which is resistant to foreign agents such as spray paint. Standard curtains are white but are also available in a number of colors.
