Easy, quick, safe: Spring steel instead of plug-in lathes
The new load securing curtain – Krone Safe Curtain
Werlte, July 2016 – The name says it all: With Krone's new load securing curtain Safe Curtain, high-strength spring steel strips are integrated in vertical PVC tunnel pockets in the side curtains. With this technology, Krone offers you a load securing system using the side curtain, meaning that the classical plug-in lathes can be dispensed with. The advantage: Handling the Safe Curtain is not only simpler, safer and quicker, but also – compared to conventional side curtains with plug-in lathes – there is a weight saving of around 90 kg.
Another benefit: The integrated spring steel strips also take on an anti-theft function in the vertical direction: If the curtain is deliberately cut, it is only possible to cut to the next spring steel strip. Repairing the curtain is also just as simple as repairing a standard side curtain. In addition, work-related accidents caused by plug-in lathes falling become a thing of the past.
Side Curtain is available now. The new safety curtain can be retrofitted to all existing Krone sliding curtain superstructures. The Safe Curtain is certified according to DIN EN 12642 Code XL (up to 140 km/h), VDI 2700 ff beverage certificate and Daimler 9.5. The rearward load securing on the semitrailer is still possible using locking bars.zip PR: The new load securing curtain – Krone Safe Curtain zip (3 MB)
