Dry van fleet operators have renewed confidence in specifying a translucent roof option on dry vans thanks to a new, composite material available only through US Liner Company.
BXR Series T-Roof panels establish new benchmarks in durability and performance. According to Michael LaRocco, US Liner President, "Earlier translucent roof materials could not hold up to the rigors of the trucking industry. They were fragile, prone to puncture and tear from low-hanging trees and other objects. More importantly, over time, UV rays caused the thermoset materials to become brittle."
BXR Series T-Roof panels are engineered with a unique, five-layer construction using durable Versitex and Bulitex materials. The panels are reinforced with continuous woven and non-woven glass fibers.
Jeff Meek, US Liner's VP, Sales and Marketing said, "For the first time, BXR T-Roof permits us to provide a translucent roof product that can withstand the rigors of loading and unloading. BXR provides a high level of light transmittance, while reducing radiant heat absorption, commonly found with first-generation translucent materials."
Meek said customer response has exceeded expectations. Other performance factors include: over five times the tear resistance of fiberglass, crack resistant, resists mold and mildew, easy installation.
