Curtainsided Rigid Bodywork | New


Why Curtainsider Rigids?

Curtainsider rigids are typically used for secondary distribution and where there is a requirement to load from the side at the point of collection/ delivery.

Commonly, you also have the facility to load/ unload through the rear; perhaps from a loading bay or even at ground level when fitted with a tail-lift.


Don-Bur curtainsider rigid bodies are engineered and manufactured to provide a durable build and a consistent performance with the minimum amount of maintenance throughout its working life.
