· ALCS Side Curtain Systems Intro Page
Welcome to a Load Covering Solutions for truck body, flatbed, and drop deck applications. When choosing ALCS, keep in mind the system comes with a typical aluminum van roof so top loading is not available on standard models. Optional top tarp systems to provide overhead load accessibility are priced out based on individual load requirements.
Carriers and shippers chose ALCS for its versatility to load like a flatbed trailer from either side or through the rear while having the weather containment of a van trailer. ALCS also provides greater load bearing where if product shifts sideways the vertical cargo straps and tension buckles built into the side wall provides greater ability to contain a load and still allows side accessibility in order to get the load off the trailer.
ALCS Side Curtain Systems provides less annual maintenance because there are less working parts. If you’re looking for a system that is simply load and go then ALCS is definitely a product you need to learn more about.
