LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The traditional 18-Wheeler will soon be getting an upgrade as Kinedyne implements the all new Kin-Sider and Kin-Slider systems which are to be revealed at the Mid-American Trucking Show (MATS). The Kin-Sider utilizes fasteners along the bottom of the curtain side that drivers will be familiar with whereas the Kin-Slider allows the curtain to be opened or closed much more quickly than ever before.
Kinedyne’s goal was to fix certain weaknesses regarding issues with the current curtain-side systems. These weaknesses included: intrusion of moisture, fungal growth, fading graphics, and mechanical failure that have for years been a major problem with past curtain-side systems.
For the 18-Wheeler, the Kin-Sider, was developed to replace the current curtain-side systems already in use. The newer system has been designed to operate more efficiently and are much easier to open with the buckle and fasteners located beneath the bottom of the reinforcements. This system will also reduce labor and improve the overall productivity rate of employees.
The Kin-Slider on the other hand, provides drivers the means to increase speed when operating chassis-mounted trucks with doors that roll up and older model 18-wheelers that use traditional curtain walls. Increased productivity means money saved for both the driver and the company which will thereby allow the driver to make more stops.
Many high quality materials were contributed to Kinedyne’s creations. Both systems have an option for impressive graphics. These images are printed with resolutions of 360 dpsi (dots per square inch).
The coating on the systems themselves is highly durable. Kinedyne’s coating is so resistant to everything. Wipe away spray paint with just water in 24 hours. Simply continue to wipe until the spray paint or whatever it is off up to 400 times with no damage to the image at all.
