Truck Tarps and Covers for the Winter Season

Protect Your Customers’ Investments

This time of year, it’s critical for your customers to have truck covers and tarps that they can rely on. The snow, sleet, and rain in the winter months can cause a considerable amount of damage while transporting goods. Without a truck tarp, transported goods can be damaged or even destroyed, costing your customers in lost time, revenue, and a lowered reputation. The best way to prevent such destruction is to protect your customers’ investments with a quality-made cover or tarp. This will ensure that the transported cargo arrive to their destination in the same state that they left in.

Truck tarps will protect your customers’ cargo from all types of external elements. As a result, long distance journeys during adverse weather conditions won’t damage the goods being transported. This is because our high-quality tarpaulins have the strength and durability to withstand all that Mother Nature can throw at them. Furthermore, using a truck tarp will allow drivers to secure their load for their safety as well as the safety of other motorists during transport. We offer two different options for truck tarps, including Lumber Hauler Tarps and Steel Hauler Tarps.

Lumber Hauler Tarps

Our lumber tarps are manufactured with the highest quality fabrics and can cover any size rig. All vinyl seams are heat sealed and all of the hems are double lock stitched. These tarps are also available in any of our fine coated vinyl selection or with a combination of vinyl weights. Additionally, our standard tarps are 18 oz. vinyl coated fabric.

Steel Hauler Tarps

Our steel hauler tarps are available in the highest quality vinyl coated fabrics or the 15 oz. water resistant canvas. All seams are double lock stitched. Also, just like our lumber hauler tarps, this option also can cover any size rig your customers need.

The Best Ways to Keep Your Hardware in Shape this Winter

With winter months on the near horizon, it’s best to prep your equipment and worksites now—before the bad weather strikes. From snow to sleet, the coarse weather ahead will make it more difficult for maintenance workers to get to you should anything malfunction.

Planning Ahead

Instead of waiting for something to go wrong, take the right precautions now to ensure optimal performance on your equipment and site to get you through the roughest time of the year. This technique will help you to avoid troubles down the road.

As a wholesale manufacturer of industrial textile products and a distributor of hardware and findings, Mauritzon warrants durable products to withstand severe weather.

Why not step it up a notch?

A close inspection of your equipment and workspace as a whole is a way to avert tainted equipment come spring.

Hardware and Findings Maintenance

Listen to the advice of the experts—get your awning hardware, cargo restraints, and other tools prepped and ready to go.

Steps to take & issues to look for:

  • Check for worn parts
  • Tears
  • Other damages that have been inflicted throughout the previous year
  • Replace parts that have been affected before the weather gets bad

Inspections and replacements can apply to the majority of your supplies:

Other types of protection you can use to help:

  • Cargo restraints like sturdy tarp protectors or durable winches
  • Easy-to-insert hardware and webbing
  • Grommets
  • High-strength & reliable washers

If you’re in the marine industry, this will aid your boats and other fleet vehicles in severe winds, rain, sleet, etc.

We all want our gear as equipped as possible when the nicer weather reemerges next spring.

Lastly, inspect safety equipment and replace if needed.

Our quality setting tools provide simple ways to set and insert grommets and snaps, install common sense fasteners, and more—anything you need to make your transition into the change of seasons as easy as possible.

Vinyl, Polyethylene and Polypropylene Offer Advantages to End-Users of Industrial Textile Products

As summer winds down this month, it’s time to start thinking ahead: It will soon be time to cover our boats, pools and outdoor living furniture to protect them from the unforgiving winter weather. The covers and tarps you will need are manufactured using a variety of industrial fabrics and textiles. These products are made from different kinds of materials, including vinyl, polyethylene and polypropylene. The materials used to manufacture industrial textiles have qualities and features that offer advantages to the end-users of industrial textile products – not to mention they make a world of difference in preparing for next year’s summer season.

Industrial fabrics that are laminated or coated with vinyl Vinyl Imageoffer strength and durability and are also resistant to punctures and tears. Vinyl coated fabrics are often used for industrial and military applications, covering trucks, heavy equipment, fields and more. It’s easy to see why they can also be used for awnings, signs and other outdoor consumer products. You can learn more about the vinyl industrial textiles we offer on our website.

Polyethylene and polypropylene are also used in the manufacturing of industrial fabrics. Both materials are used to create, what is known in the textile manufacturing industry, as olefin. Olefin is a man made fiber generally combined with other fibers to create outdoor fabric blends. In short, the main difference between polyethylene and polypropylene is that they are derived from different chemical compounds, or “monomers.” Polyethylene’s monomer is ethylene; while polypropylene’s monomer is propylene. Polypropylene is also considered to be more stiff and resistant to chemicals and organic solvents than polyethylene. Furthermore, polypropylene is non-stretching and less flexible than polyethylene, as we learn from differencebetween.com.

Products that need to be waterproof, durable, abrasion and UV-Polyethylene Image 2resistant (pool covers, marine covers, roof protectors and many types of tarps) are made with textiles using polyethylene and polypropylene. Mesh industrial fabrics are also made with these materials, offering both strength and breathability.

The above offers only a general overview of the different kinds of industrial textile materials, but you can learn more about industrial textile products made with vinyl, polyethylene and polypropylene by visiting our website.
