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

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 can be applied as an option 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. For
