The rods lifting system solves the problems of wear, deformation and breakage of the old lifting system using a plastic flat strip (PE) when closing up the covering. The rods guarantee a tidier and less bulky folding of the tarpaulin with less stress on it. The rods lifting system can also be repaired by simply replacing the damaged part, more rapidly and with lower costs.
Lastly, it is important to note that the rods lifting system can be fitted also on coverings already in use and equipped with the old PE flat strip system, with a view to perfect interchangeability of the components.
Device for lowering the cables for moving the covering lower than the level of the upper edge of the tipper body by 23 mm.
This system protects the cables from damage while loading and unloading aggregate, which could jeopardise proper functioning of the covering.
Automatic rear closing is a mechanical system, designed and produced by Marcolin, which enables the tarpaulin to be closed automatically in the rear part of the trailer.
The automatic rear closing replaces the old closure system of fastening the rear tarp with straps to ensure a more practical and safe solution for operators.
Marcolin coverings for three-sided tippers can be equipped with a quick release system that allows the operator to carry out side loading and unloading operations without any cable interference.
The result of Marcolin research and development, always ahead of the evolution of coverings and their accessories: the automatic L-shaped hooking system secures the covering to the truck body by inserting it in a U-bolt fixed on the side edge to prevent the tarp lifting while driving or in strong wind.
Available as an optional and easy to install, our special windproof fasteners can be applied to all types of covers. Provided with a Z-track.
An important advantage of this type of fastener is its ability to adapt to the trailer sides even when expanded because of overloading.
It can be applied to all the cover bows ensuring a strong anchorage of the cover to the open top trailer. It is ideal for very windy areas.
