The Strick Group unveiled its latest product, the Strick Curtainside Trailer. The Strick Curtainside Trailer is built in conjunction with Roland Curtains in Berwick, PA.
“We are very excited about tis trailer and with our partnership with Roland Curtains,” said Ben Katz, Marketing Manager for Strick. “We have been building specialty flatbeds for some time now and teaming up with Roland in order to be able to offer a curtainsider to our customers will help expand our increasingly diverse product line.”
The Strick Curtainside Trailer features Roland’s RolaFreight curtains, which are produced with a 28 ounce 2 x 2 Panama double thread weave. For even greater strength, vertical and horizontal webbing reinforcements are welded to the interior.
Also standard on the trailer is a vinyl valence seal along the exterior top rail which helps ensure that water stays out of the trailer as well as rolling roof support pillars that slide out of the way for even easier side loading. The lower structure of the trailer is finished with Strick’s industry leading 70% zinc-rich epoxy primer and urethane topcoat.
The trailer also comes standard with aluminum side rails and an Apitong wood floor giving it a tare weight of 14,500 pounds. Optional features such as an aluminum floor and aluminum wheels can also reduce the weight for customers who are weight conscious.
Due to its flexible manufacturing processes, Strick can build this trailer in various lengths and drop deck configurations in order to meet various customer needs. Additional options include an aerodynamic nosecone, pull-out ladders and various forklift mounting packages.
The introduction of the Curtainside Trailer continues Strick’s strategy of diversifying into new product categories. Once known almost exclusively for standard dry vans, Strick along with its sister companies Evans Trailers and Cheetah Chassis now offers a vast array of specialized products stretching from Furniture Vans to lowboys
