Specialist & Extra Options


We make curtains to fit all sizes of trailers and for all purposes. If you would like to know more than what is listed below please don't hesitate to call us on 01263 863100


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.


  • High quality metallised insulation
  • Maximum reflection with a K value of 0.33 w/sqmk at 0 degrees C
  • Full trailer / vehicle length insulation coverage for optimum performance
  • Insulation is protected by inside layer layer of 630gsm PVC
Security and anti-vandal We are able to introduce a level of protection for side curtains, to combat low level knife slashing, by slowing down the offender, requiring more time consuming systematic 'snipping' during either opportunistic or targeted load theft, trailer entry or pure vandalism. Whilst it is accepted no anti-vandal option is perfect, side curtains incorporating a visible security system acting as a deterrent, may encourage the offender to pass on to an easier target, or stand a higher chance of being discovered because of the increase in time required to gain access.

Anti-vandal mesh Stainless steel close woven chain mail, is first attached to a sheet of 630gsm PVC coated polyester, and then finally welded to the inside face of the side curtain Available as standard in 1m or 2m heights, other sizes can be accommodated.

Sio-Steel A grid pattern of 100mm x 100mm, constructed from 4mm wide flat stainless steel strips is introduced to the inside curtain face, with a third covering layer of 630gsm PVC coated polyester covering the grid. Protection heights are offered at either 900mm, 1200mm or 1800mm.

Dynatex Heavy duty inner skin from PVC coated wire mesh panel. Inner skin attached to the inside face of the curtain by PVC welding. Standard Dynatex height is 1250mm; other heights may be available upon request.


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.
