Tarpaulin accessories and variants
Krone uses profiled rollers for the majority of sliding curtains. As a result, resistance by the rubber sealing strip is reduced which makes it easier to open and close the curtain.
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 in each side curtain for stable loading, in which there is no need for the classic plug-in lathes. The advantage: Handling the Safe Curtain is not only simpler, safer and quicker, but –compared to conventional side curtains with plug-in lathes – there are also weight savings of approximately 90 kg. Another benefit: The integrated spring steel strips also serve as an anti-theft function: 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 with a standard side curtain. In addition, work-related accidents caused by falling plug-in lathes are a thing of the past.
Another plus point is that the integrated spring steel strips also have an anti-theft function in the vertical direction: if the tarpaulin is deliberately cut, it can only be cut to the next spring steel strip. Repairing the tarpaulin is just as easy as with a standardised side tarpaulin. In addition, accidents at work due to falling insertable slats are a thing of the past.
The Safe Curtain tarpaulin can also be supplemented with additional welded-on steel ropes and thus offers increased theft protection.
As an option, steel cables can be welded onto the inside of the curtain.
The Guard Curtain can also be used on the roof, using its welded-on steel cables.
Load securing and anti-theft curtain. Rectangular steel cables woven into the inside of the curtain provide anti-theft protection.
