Structure-flex Ltd has been a leading manufacturer of high quality tension curtains since the product was first invented in the early 1970s and has continued to provide an increasing range of innovative technical products for the commercial vehicle industry ever since.
Our relocation in 2015 to a bespoke 50,000 sq ft factory, combined with ongoing investment in modern state of the art high frequency and hot air welding equipment, proudly provides us with the largest capacity digital print side curtain manufacturing facility, in the UK.
Our full-service integrated approach, means we are happy to measure vehicles or trailers, prepare visual livery layouts for approval, liaising where preferred directly with your marketing agencies regarding artwork design or preparation, as well as arranging fitting where required.
"Structure-flex offer a comprehensive service level, and when their high quality digital print is combined with the EN-XL side curtain design and quality of manufacture, they deliver a product which meets Tiger's own high expectations and requirements. Structure-flex have been a reliable supply partner since we started."

With a recent investment of £450,000 in the latest wide-format digital printing technology, we have increased our capacity to produce stunning curtain sides with full scale digital print graphics covering the length and height of the curtain at a very cost effective price.
Manufactured from 900gsm 2x2 Panama PVC coated polyester high gloss lacquered material, available in both pocket and fixed strap style. Lots of additional features can be added to tailor the curtain to your specific requirements from increasing safety to insulation for chilled and ambient produce.
The unique Smoothside curtain system transforms the appearance of a curtainsider and gives you the whole of the side to display your company details and brands. Smoothside works differently to tension curtains, so there are no straps or buckles visible from the outside presenting you with a more visually appealing option of using the whole of the visible area to be as creative as you choose.
Reflex is a rapid access body system developed specifically for multi drop operations that require frequent opening and closing of the sides. It's bespoke side rave and curtain construction provide a smooth operation and durability and the option to individually lock each of the doors provides added security for your product. We can provide the complete body kit together with the curtain in a colour and livery of your choice.
Structure-flex has a long involvement in sliding cover systems for the steel haulage industry and can fulfil your requirements whether this is for a complete body kit or a replacement cover or condensation sheet. We manufacture covers to suit both rigids and trailers, both new build and refurbishments. Our long experience in this product ensures that you receive a quality item in order to enhance your fleet.
Structure-flex manufactures a range of rollover sheets to suit rigid bodies and trailers involved in a variety of uses from road transport to agricultural. Manufactured from 2 x 2 material and with reinforcing bands and patches to prevent excessive wear, we ensure that the cover will meet your requirements. We manufacture sheets to suit both manually operated and power driven systems together with rear flaps etc. and incorporating a variety of closures.
From basic vinyl graphics to full vehicle wraps Structure Flex has it covered.
One of the most exciting things about vehicle wrapping is that just about anything is possible! We have the skills, experience and technology to bring your vehicle wrap design concept to life, enabling your vehicle to make a huge impact wherever it travels.
Structure-flex manufactures curtains to suit even the largest of vehicles and trailers. From step decks to double decks, curved Eco fronts to standard steps we ensure that your curtain meets your requirements. Additional wear bands are fitted as standard at both deck and pillar positions and the flap arrangement is manufactured with additional reinforcing at the step position to prevent excessive wear and tear.
By incorporating a separate composite layer of insulating aluminium air filled membrane, and further layer of 630gsm PVC to sandwich the insulation to the side curtain itself, we are able to assist with temperature control for non-frozen perishable goods, for both trailers and rigid vehicles. Structure-flex introduce the thermal insulation layer along the entire length of the curtain for optimum performance, whereas some only insert panels of insulation between the vertical buckle webbings. On a trailer, there could be 23 webbings each at 5cm wide, leaving nearly 10% each side of the curtain length uninsulated, reducing thermal performance.
Having worked for over 20 years with market leading specialist poultry trailer manufacturer Panama Trailers, we offer poultry side curtains, which incorporate open weave PVC mesh panels running the entire curtain length, as well as an overall curtain drop designed to leave a gap above the floor. These features enable a high level of airflow, so poultry do not suffer temperature discomfort during transportation.
In addition, or separately to our side curtains we can also provide cab wraps and rear-door decals or wraps. These are perfect for tying your livery design together!
