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.

Accessories Available

  • Rubber Tarp Straps
  • Cargo Restraint Equipment
  • Patch Kits
  • Reinforced Poly Repair Tape

Athletic Covers – Protection and Performance

Athletic Covers

Athletic covers are incredibly important, but in general we tend to not think about them. Your customers can use them in a variety of ways; this can include protecting their field or gym floor, transforming it for an event, or as a floor cover in a boxing ring. Mauritzon offers high quality athletic covers for gymnasium floors and fields as well as martial arts, MMA and boxing rings.

Gymnasium Floor & Field Covers

Using athletic covers can save your customers a lot of time and money. They can protect their fields from damage during large events.

We also offer covers for gymnasium floors that will protect against wear and tear that can occur with hosting non-athletic events such as a graduation or dance. Our covers can protect your gym floor from scratches by heavy equipment or scuffs by shoes or chairs.

Get Your Gym Ready for the Back-To-School Sports Season

There’s a lot revolving around our nation’s schools this month! According to the Institute of Education Sciences, almost 50 million kids are attending public elementary and secondary schools in the U.S., not including the approximately 21 million students that are attending American colleges and universities this fall. Together, that’s 71 million students running around our nation’s education institutions! More than 125,000 public and private schools in the U.S. are getting back into their schedules and we all know that means the fall sports season is underway.

An ESPN survey reports that children and teens in the U.S. are Gym Divider Imageparticipating in more sports activities. The report says, “Generation Z, or those born in 2000 or after, can now be analyzed in significant numbers. Participation levels [in sports activities] are high for this age group… having over 50% take part in team sports and outdoor activities.”

You might be asking yourself what all of these stats have to do with textiles? Well, trust the textile experts! These numbers are crucial to our industry, indicating that the gyms in our schools will see some heavy usage this year. We advise planning ahead in order to keep sports organized at schools, gyms, and other indoor sports facilities.

To help school sports programs and indoor sports facilities better manage activities and physical education classes in their gyms, they should be using gym divider curtains, further detailed in our July Roll Trac Moving Hardware Imageblog.

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. To see some of the types of textiles and products we manufacturer with polyethylene and polypropylene, click here.

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. We are also available through e-mail: info@mauritzon.net or phone: 800-621-4352. Feel free to ask us any questions about industrial textile products!
