Crane Composites has been in the business of lining transportation trailers and truck bodies since 1954. We introduced the Kemlite® standard liner product line in 1970, followed by our heavy duty liner product line, ArmorTuf®, in 2003. In 2010, Crane Composites introduced our high-strength ArmorTuf®-NXT line.


Crane Composites is the world leader in the production of Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (frp) composite panels equipping trailers and truck bodies around the world with lightweight, cleanable, highly stain and abrasion resistant liners.


Whether you’re building a new trailer or truck body or refurbishing an existing one, always ask for CRANE. Only CRANE is available at thousands of aftermarket locations across the country.

How can our liners help trailers meet regulations?

Crane liners have been designed to allow for full compliance with USDA/FDA requirements for non-food contacting applications for years and support the new Food Safety and Modernization Act. Unlike other liner products in the market, Crane liners do not require an anti-microbial additive because our product does not support the growth of microbes. Additionally, the Crane product has a hard, non-porous surface that is very durable and easy to clean and to keep sanitary. Our products have been used for over 60 years and are used today in food processing plants, restaurants, and in transportation truck bodies and trailers, because they are a cost effective way to create a clean, durable, and sanitary surface.



Our ArmorTuf® brand is our premier line of high-impact, heavy-duty sidewall liners. ArmorTuf® liners are comprised of continuous woven roving fiberglass along with long strand chopped glass and durable polyester resin.


Our ArmorTuf®-NXT brand was introduced in 2010 and features liners that are value engineered for maximum strength by utilizing Crane Composites’ NexForce™ Technology, a unique composition of continuous uni-strand fiberglass roving along with long strand chopped glass and durable polyester resin.


Our Kemlite® brand is our legacy line of lightweight liners. Kemlite® products include long strand chopped glass and durable polyester resin.

What seperates Crane liners from the rest?

Surfaseal® is a unique surface to Crane Composites. This protective finish ensures that our panels will stand up to harsh conditions while maintaining a clean and sanitary surface. Many of our products, denoted with an asterisks(*) below, are equipped with this unique Surfaseal® finish, which allows for a panel with unmatched stain resistance and cleanability.
