Kinedyne LLC, a world-leading manufacturer and distributor of cargo control products for the transportation industry, announced that it has been named the exclusive master distributor for VeeBoards, VeeBoards2Go and BrickGuards Brand Corner Protectors for the United States and Canada. As part of its agreement with the product’s manufacturer, Kinedyne will also be distributing the industry’s first patent-pending, stackable corner protectors.
The new stackable design allows the strap guide channels on each corner protector to nest securely on top of the next, enabling users to store the devices in a low-profile unit when not in use. The stacks take up less space and are much easier for flatbed trailer operators to secure and store than freestanding corner protectors. The stackable design will now be standard on all VeeBoards, VeeBoards2Go, and BrickGuards Brand Corner Protectors.
Invented in 1986, VeeBoards Brand Corner Protectors were first introduced to the U.S. market in 2002 and have become the gold standard for their design, quality, durability and effectiveness among fleets and owner-operators alike. The products evenly distribute the mechanical force exerted by load securement straps and other tie-down assemblies and help maintain the structural integrity of stacked cargo, thereby inhibiting payload travel and sliding, due to dynamic forces acting on the load, pushing it up, down, forward, backward and side to side.
VeeBoards, VeeBoards2Go and BrickGuards Brand Corner Protectors are manufactured by Bartleet Trading International, LLC. The company, located in Rockwall, Texas, makes its corner protectors using a high-density, virgin polyethylene blend that has been refined over the course of three decades. The unique blend helps make VeeBoards Brand Products lightweight and more flexible and helps them resist the effects of heat, cold, road chemicals, UV rays and mechanical fatigue. The company holds trademarks on its products and has a patent pending on the new stackable design.
“Before we introduced VeeBoards Brand Corner Protectors, most corner protection devices were homemade wood assemblies or bent metal, which widely varied in structure, safety and effectiveness,” Steve Bartleet, president and CEO of Bartleet Trading International, LLC, said. “With our new stackable design, we have continued our legacy of providing the industry with intelligently designed equipment that not only promotes safety, but is durable and easy to use.”
Kinedyne is one of North America’s largest manufacturers and distributors of cargo control products and has an unrivaled distribution footprint across the continent. Effective immediately, Kinedyne will serve as the exclusive master distributor for all VeeBoards, VeeBoards2Go and BrickGuards Brand Corner Protectors and will have distribution and marketing responsibility throughout the U.S. and Canada.
“This is a superbly designed product line and, used in conjunction with proper load securement techniques, promotes safety for both vehicle operators and the public at large,” Paul Wolford, vice president of sales and marketing for Kinedyne LLC, said. “Kinedyne is excited to be able to make these products available to more fleets and owner-operators everywhere and to help promote proper load securement within the industry.”
