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

Proud Supplier of CSM Fabrics

Supplier of CSM Fabrics

What is CSM?

Chlorosulphonated Polyethylene (CSM) is an improved version of chloroprene that offers superior chemical resistance, ozone/light resistance, and heat aging.

Also referred to as Hypalon®, this type of fabric coating can be used to prevent weathering conditions that can damage many industrial fabrics. Hypalon was discontinued by its manufacturer, DuPont, and the CSM material that is now used is a slightly altered formula.

Due to its low gas permeability, CSM is oftentimes used to manufacture quality inflatable boats and other structures to be used in a variety of environments, most notably in the water. Nearly all inflatable boats are created using either PVC or CSM/Hypalon fabric, as are coastal boats.

CSM Fabrics vs. PVC Fabrics

As with any material, each has its own set of advantages and disadvantages that should be taken into consideration when making your selection.

PVC fabric is significantly less expensive than CSM and is very strong. It can come in different thicknesses, such as .09mm and 1.2mm, but despite this it does not repel sunlight as well as CSM is able to.

Overall, CSM is more expensive than PVC, but has the added benefit of lasting much longer and protecting against sun exposure as well as being tolerant on fuel spills or fumes.

CSM also has a high tolerance against a variety of environments and different weather conditions. CSM is more favorable than PVC in hot climate areas. While PVC may be very useful there, precautions have to be taken to protect the boat where they are not as necessary with CSM.

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.

A Look Back at 2016’s Highlights

With the year drawing to a close, the team at Mauritzon is looking ahead to next year’s challenges while taking stock of everything we’ve accomplished in 2016. Below, we’ve highlighted some of our most important blog posts from the past year.

Blog Highlights

Serving Diverse Industries

As a leading industrial wholesale manufacturer and distributor of industrial textile products, hardware, and findings, Mauritzon is particularly proud of our ability to serve a diverse range of industries. For instance, in our March blog post, we outlined how our sturdy vinyl-coated truck covers help protect cargo from the elements and keep fellow drivers safe. In our last blog, we circled back around to this topic as our supplies are a huge help in protecting your loads while traveling in winter conditions.

In our April post, we delved into our work contributing awning fabrics to various businesses. To name a few, companies like retail stores and outdoor cafes can eventually reap the benefits. Able to withstand the most severe conditions, we provide flame-retardant polyester vinyl fabrics to ensure durability and optimal safety. We offer UV-resistant and self-cleaning awning textiles as well.

We also serve the boating industry — where we got our start 100 years ago — providing weather-resistant, durable materials for sails. In our May post, we showcased our marine material offerings, including acrylic-coated polyester, waterproof acyclic, clear woven reinforced patterns, and spin-dyed acrylic fabrics for boat covers.

Our Dedication to Safety

At Mauritzon, we’re proud of our commitment to safety in the workplace and for our clients. In honor of National Safety Month, held annually every June, we penned a blog outlining how textiles help keep people safe in various environments. For instance, our flame-retardant vinyl laminated polyester fabrics — ideal for use as tarpaulins, gym floor covers, and divider curtains — help ensure public safety and reduce the risk of injury.

Our 745 FR PVC-coated membrane is also flame resistant; a strong polyester base fabric with a thick, knife-coated PVC layer, this material is well suited for heavy-duty applications such as awnings, partition curtains, and canopies.

Looking Toward 2017

This was an exciting, productive year for the team at Mauritzon, and we look forward to continuing to provide top-quality, reliable textile solutions for the industrial space and more. We hope everyone has a happy, healthy holiday season, and we’ll see you in 2017!

Mauritzon Supports National Safety Month

National Safety Month is observed every June in the United States. National Safety Month 2016 in wordingIt’s sponsored by the National Safety Council (NSC) with the motto: SafeForLife. Each week supports a different theme, such as Stand Ready to Respond, Be Healthy, Watch Out for Dangers, and Share Roads Safely. The NSC offers materials that are easily downloadable for each topic. The overall goal of the NSC is to reduce the leading causes of accidents and death on the job, in homes, on the road, and within communities.

Although training is a big part of safety, there are also numerous products that can help to reduce injuries and death. Textiles are an important part of safety in many workplaces. For example, flame-retardant vinyl laminated polyester fabrics can be used for tarpaulins, gym floor covers, divider curtains, and other industrial and general purpose covers. This type of textile can be successfully used in homes, schools, and in the workplace.

Another great flame-retardant textile is the 745 FR PV-coated membrane which provides a strong polyester base fabric that’s combined with a thick, knife-coated PVC layer for more heavy duty applications such as light structures, canopies, fixed awnings, tents, and partition curtains.

According to the American Chemistry Council, “Flame retardants are a key component in reducing the devastating impact of fires on people, property and the environment.” Textiles that are flame resistant or fire retardant help to stop fires, prevent fires from spreading, and keep damage from fires to a minimum. One product that can help to provide protection from fire and water is the Sattler – Firemaster Plus. This flame resistant mod-acrylic fabric is used as awning fabric and comes in a variety of colors.

Should your home or business need something unique, Mauritzon offers Flame and Water Resistant Fabric to create the ideal product for your needs. Fire Retardant Canvas Tarpaulins come in a wide range of sizes from 4’ x 4’ to 30’ x 30’ and Mauritzon also offers custom sizes should the pre-sized tarpaulins not fit your needs.

When it comes to textile products that can help your home or business stay safe, look no further than Mauritzon. Not only does Mauritzon promote fire and water safety, but we offer many products that can keep your family, friends, and staff safe, whether at home or on the job.
