HEART OF AMERICA
Truck drivers are the heart of America. Transporting goods across the country every day, they are dedicated to their jobs. Many truck drivers have long routes that require them to sleep in the sleeper cab, or sleeper berth, of their truck so this space becomes their home away from home. This space isn't very large and is limited when it comes to storage. However, there is often room for a small refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and even a tv. Separating the space with curtain tracks and curtains is a solution that allows truckers to not have to think about work 24/7, especially when they are trying to relax after a long day on the road or would like to get some shut eye.
To divide the sleeper cab from the driver's seat, the 5400 CurtainMate Track can be added. This track works well on semi trucks and is just three feet in length but can be joined end to end for a custom fit. We know no two trucks are exactly the same so this track can be bent when it’s warmed in hot water so it fits the space perfectly. The 5400 CurtainMate Track is also our most narrow track which means it protrudes less than a half inch away from where it is mounted so it allows very little light to shine into the sleeper cab when the curtains are pulled closed.
KEEP THE LIGHT OUT
Adding custom curtains allows you to choose the perfect fabric for your space. We carry flame retardant fabrics which meet FMVSS 302 standards. Plus, they have superior stain and odor release properties and are machine washable or can be dry cleaned. Plus, when you have custom curtains made, you can select Black Out Lining which will help keep the light out and also eliminate noise.
We want to thank truck drivers everywhere for a job well done. If our team at Curtain-Tracks can help make your truck a bit more comfortable, please let us know. If you would like to order custom curtains for your truck (or RV or boat), simply click here!
ON THE ROAD
With Amazon Prime memberships on the rise, that means more and more packages are being delivered daily. That also means more truck drivers are working long hours, and for that, we are thankful! The packages that magically arrive on our door step in two days is simply life changing! In addition to being thankful, we have some great products for these amazing truckers to create an oasis right in the cab of their truck.
SHUT EYE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DAY?
Our Eclipse Light Blocking Curtains block 98% of light, which is really important for that mid-day nap at the truck stop. Worried about light sneaking through the corners? Our Bendable Curtain Track can bend to any shape to allow one piece of fabric to cover the window and the corner. Another tip is to order a bit more height or length and allowing the fabric to cover all the way to the roof, below the window, and wider than the edges to ensure total coverage. The Eclipse fabric comes in heights that increase by six inch increments and widths that increase by 18 inch increments.
NEED YOUR CAB TO FEEL LIKE HOME?
When you want the cab of your truck to feel just a bit more like home, our Eclipse fabric is available in 28 colors. Choose the color that makes you feel happy and relaxed and you automatically set the stage for coziness. After all those hours spent in a truck, you should like how it looks. And if you are unsure about the color and how it will match the existing upholstery, just contact us for a free sample.
Our shortest track, CurtainMate, measures in at just three feet in length, so you don’t have to worry about cutting down a track that is too long for a small truck cab. It can be joined end to end for a custom fit. In addition, it’s made of plastic that can be bent when it’s warmed in hot water. It is one of our most popular products for vehicles because it is the most narrow. Why is this good, you ask? This track protrudes less than a half inch away from where it is mounted, which allows very little light through in comparison to its counterparts.
