Otherwise known as XL rated curtains, our EN specification truck curtains adhere to all the standards set out by the European containment standard. This European standard was introduced a few years ago and today this piece of legislation is being increasingly enforced and becoming the norm when producing truck curtains for our roads. The process used to produce the curtains to these standards has actually always been a standard in the Cunningham production method so you’re in safe hands.
There are many requirements of EN 12641-2 XL including the makeup of the vertical belt strength; this must be to 2.3 tonne, while the horizontal belt must be to 1.2 tonne. The spacing’s of both horizontal and vertical belts should be at a maximum of 600mm developing a super strong mesh on the curtain. All our XL rated curtains use our 900gsm Panama PVC for the base material, this material has world class properties proven on the global stage for longevity and performance.
Securing the load is the most important and critical point of the curtain so when choosing a buckle for an XL rated curtain it is imperative that the buckle has the performance and strength to carry out its job.
