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

Outdoor Textiles For Winter Protection

Keep Your Customers’ Possessions Safe with Outdoor Textiles:

House and a Shed in the Wintertime

What to Expect from the Industrial Textile Industry in 2018

The industrial textiles industry is key to the manufacturing sector, and our Mauritzon team is proud to be at the forefront of the industry. Over three centuries, with family ownership spanning five generations, our company has manufactured and distributed quality wholesale industrial products across the nation. What can we do for you? Read on to learn more about Mauritzon and the upcoming 2018 textile forecast.

The Last of 2017

Part of planning for 2018 involves revisiting what went right in 2017. With positives like October’s National Manufacturing Day initiative, business across the industry work hard to inspire the next generation of skilled workers.

Product catalogs are also a great way to spread knowledge about a company’s products and capabilities. Our latest product catalog covered our industrial fabrics, awning and marine fabrics, tarpaulins, welding blankets and screens, divider curtains, and athletic covers and dividers.

2018 Predictions for Industrial Textiles

Expectations for the U.S. industrial textile industry are high and we hope to see even further advancements and successes throughout 2018. Industrial textiles have become a more important part of the textile and apparel manufacturing sector over the past few years, and this is not forecast to change.

The wholesale industrial fabrics and textile products we distribute appeal to diverse markets, from automotive and marine to sports and recreational. As the U.S. boating industry continues to unveil innovations and experience growing recreational boat sales, the demand for reliable marine fabrics will grow too. As always, the sports industry remains strong, driven at least in part by an increasing safety-conscious American population. In turn, products such as athletic covers for gyms, martial arts, and soccer fields will be highly sought-after.

Mauritzon textiles are constructed with heavy-duty materials to withstand the toughest elements and environments. Safety will continue to be at the forefront of our minds in everything we craft and distribute in 2018 and beyond, along with ensuring we consistently provide superior service and materials to our customers.

As the New Year Rolls In

The Mauritzon team looks forward to another productive year in the books.

We hope that your New Year is filled with joy and good health!

The Best of Industrial Textile Products 2017

2018 is knocking on the door, and with that said we’re asking our audience, “what did you do this year that you can do better next year?” When it comes to industrial textiles and supplies, we’ve got your answer! We’re giving you the best of Mauritzon products 2017 (add them to your holiday last for 2018!).

In February, we kicked off 2017 with snow tarps as fresh as the inches on your front lawn. Our industrial tarps are good for construction, hardware, trucking, the supply chain and other similar sectors. Mauritzon’s snow tarps are reinforced and reliable premium products that are changing the way you deal with inclement weather. We warned that all snow tarps are not made equal! Available in two variants – Economy and Premium, Maurtizon tarps are:

  • Made of durable PVC coated polyester
  • Reinforced down the middle and especially along the sides with seat belt quality straps boasting break strengths of 6000-12,000 lbs.
  • Made for longevity with steel O-rings on ends of all webbing
  • To be used only on freshly fallen snow

Best of all, these durable investments keep their worth by saving time and money for our consumers!

In case you missed it, snow tarps aren’t the only kind of industrial tarps we supply. Diverter and drainage tarps are a must have for commercial roof leaks. If your roof system is compromised, a drainage tarp provides a quality short-term solution until a professional can arrive on site to do the necessary repairs. Varieties that we offer include: economical light duty, flame retardant, and anti-static vinyl. No matter which style you choose, rest assured that the right investment will give you the right set up for a leaky situation.

Time after time, one of our biggest sellers is our industrial awnings and hardware. Options include:

  • Awnshade: A smooth surface top, flexible front lit and/or back-lit awning that’s flame-retardant with proven durability and custom colors available 1000 minimum.
  • Recacril: Constructed with an acrylic coated surface, the Recacril® Acrylic Awning offers water resistance and fabric stability, with multiple colors that illuminate beautifully.
  • Awnmax®: Featuring patented antiwicking scrim, hard acrylic topcoats, and proven durability, Awnmax® awnings have unparalleled translucency while resisting bruises, marks, and dirt.
  • Sattler®: The Sattler® line of awnings includes high-quality fabrics designed for outdoor use and extreme durability, and the Firemaster®safety-assured flame-resistant awnings that offer extra protection and strength.

In the off-seasons, we have awnings for the marine industry, outdoor living, and cleaning products for all.

Come spring, we pitched our industrial equipment for athletic activities. Mauritzon industrial textiles feature a variety of uses from fields, gymnasiums, rings, and trainings, to batting practices, tennis practices, and more. These options reign superior.

And in November, we wrapped it up with some words of advice on this coming winter. Our industrial hardware is the best you will find to prep both your equipment and worksites.

In case we missed anything about the year in review, we’ve also included our best sellers feature from August.

We’d like to take a moment to thank our loyal customer base for staying in touch with us (and in use of us) throughout 2017! We wish you all a very happy holiday season and look forward to meeting your industrial textile needs in the new year.

Mauritzon Inc. is one of the top, most diversified industrial textile manufacturers and distributors. Our small, family-run sail business, started in 1888, now serves a plethora of industries like awning and marine, transportation and construction, sports and recreational, hardware and more!

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.
