Poland-based freight carrier, Francepol, has ordered 50 standard Curtain Masters and 50 Curtain Master Mega curtainsiders from Wielton.
The first part of the order is expected to be delivered this month. The remainder will be delivered in May this year.
The vehicles are characterised by low curb weight, quick-release tarpaulin, and the ability to open the roof in two directions.
The improved structure of the tarpaulin or modern elements of the roof crown seal the loading space, protect goods against moisture.
The safety of the goods, according to the OEM, assured due to he floor profile and the load securing strip.
“The construction of the semi-trailers is based on modern hybrid welding technology, which guarantees durable and precise welds,” said Wielton.
“The weight of the Curtain Master trailer has been reduced, and as an additional option, it is possible to install a roll stop and the VL vertical load securing system. The loading area of the Curtain Master Mega semi-trailer allows the transport of goods up to 3m high, thanks to the lowering of the frame and suspension level. Used in particular in the automotive industry and where a large loading capacity is required. Standard equipment includes SAF 19.5′ axles.”
