Schmitz Cargobul unveils aluminium fixed roof curtainsider trailers

Schmitz Cargobull, one of the leading trailer manufacturers in Europe, has engineered a new line-up of aluminium fixed roof curtainsider trailers at its manufacturing facility in Altenberge, Germany.

The new range has been developed exclusively for the UK and Ireland markets and is built alongside the sliding roof curtainsiders favoured by operators on the continent.

Key features include a new aluminium front bulkhead with galvanised steel front and rear corner posts; a specification favoured by many domestic operators as it allows free side loading with the ability to use standard forklifts to load through the side aperture, without requiring a side-shift capability. It also includes wraparound curtains and a front ratchet tensioner.

Schmitz Cargobull expects the majority of domestic fleets to specify two side posts per side without rigging boards.
