    Default Chevron Durability

    For the guys that have chevrons on their rigs, how many of you have them on a roll up door in the back? How well have they held up? We're probably going to put them on our refurb (It's just about done being painted!) and I wanted some tips on what to spec for the roll up door. I was planning 3M diamond grade but didn't kn ow if they could do a clear overlay with the small slats of the roll up. It's a ROM if that means anything to anybody.

    Default 3M Diamond Grade

    We've had them on our rear roll-up for just about a year with no problems. On our specs we simply stated that we wanted red 3M diamond grade reflective vinyl.

    Now if you request the chevrons on the roll-up door it may require either a heat sealed edge or clear overlay.

    It is a solid piece of PVC.

    Is that a solid sheet of red with the yellow overlayed on it?

    Our only problem with our rear chevron durability has been where a nozzle that wasn't "secured" bounced against the rear face of the body and damaged the material. We've since fixed this, otherwise the chevron on the rear roll-up on two of our rigs is holding up just fine.
