LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Kinedyne will unveil its new Kin-Sider and Kin-Slider systems at the Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS), a pair of cargo control products that focus on addressing weaknesses in single-point latching, moisture intrusion, mechanical failure, graphic fading and fungal growth.
Kinedyne said it has engineered out of the shortcomings of other systems, while engineering in a higher degree of performance at entry level.
With the Kin-Slider, Kinedyne addressed speed of operation and ease of use issues that impact opening and closing of curtain sides.
“Everything from our moisture seals to our closure mechanisms to our curtain roller design and graphic integrity protection system has been carefully designed for optimal performance and longevity,” said Paul Wolford, vice-president of sales and marketing for Kinedyne. “And when it comes to sheer efficiency of operation, the speed of the Kin-Slider is a game-changing technology that is going to impress management and drivers alike.”
Kinedyne said the Kin-Slider will replace traditional curtain slide systems commonly used in 18-wheelers, and it provides a technological advantage for those with chassis-mounted truck bodies that now use roll-up doors and traditional curtain-walled 18-wheelers that want to operate with greater speed and efficiency.
“We recently presented our Kin-Slider product to a fleet with curtain-side vehicles that open and close as many as 50 times a day,” Wolford said. “You don’t have to be a mathematician to understand that our Kin-Slider technology will translate into several hours in time savings for each of their vehicles, and that has the potential to save them significant dollars.”
Graphics are also available on the Kin-Sider and Kin-Slider, with an operating temperature rating of between 70 degrees Celsius and -30 degrees Celsius.
