We recently expanded our line of flatbed trailer tarps, launching coil, machinery, and three-piece lumber styles. Our inventory also now includes lightweight versions of our lumber and steel tarps, as well as a wider selection of sizes.
Coil tarps, or coil bags, are commonly used to keep steel or aluminum coils tight and dry. The upper half is rounded at the front and rear to better fit cylinder-shaped loads, eliminating the need to fold and strap down tons of excess material before hauling. This allows for easier on/off and faster securement.
In addition, each corner of the bottom portion is split to form four flaps that let transport chain slide through, so the tarp slips on quickly whether the coil is mounted in either shotgun (coil has the potential to roll off the side of the trailer) or suicide (coil can roll onto the truck) position.
Machinery tarps are essentially larger versions of steel tarps to fully wrap large, expensive, and often irregularly sized manufacturing or machinery equipment. They are great, too, for encasing wood or steel products such as plywood, cables, rods, or sheets.
These are available in 24’ x 24’ or 30’ x 30’ with grommets the entire way around the tarp and multiple rows of D-rings — the number depends on size. The 18 oz. polyester has a PVC exterior coating to ensure the tarp stays waterproof and resistant to dirt, oil, salt, chemicals, and ultraviolet rays. Plus, the coated fabric gives the material added strength and durability.
Three-piece lumber tarps split the weight over three separate pieces, making them easier to handle when covering a full load on a standard flatbed trailer. These systems connect a rectangular steel tarp in the center to a lumber tarp on each end. Sections can be used individually or combined to accommodate various load sizes.
Constructed in 18 oz. or lighter-weight 14 oz. fabric, these tarps have lots of D-rings and grommets for attaching straps and rope. Each D-ring comes with an abrasion-resistant pad underneath. Like our other styles, the PVC-coated polyester acts as a tough barrier from the elements and road debris.
Lightweight lumber and steel tarps feature 14 oz. vinyl-coated polyester. Lumber sizes include: 20′ x 20′, 20′ x 27′, 24′ x 20′, and 24′ x 27′. Lightweight steel tarps come in 16′ x 27′, 20′ x 16′, and 24′ x 18′.
We also added two new sizes of heavyweight lumber and steel tarps: 20′ x 18′ and 24′ x 18′.
Don’t forget about our other heavy-duty and 14 oz./18 oz. combo options for lumber and steel hauling, along with a smoke/nose shield and designs for roll/dump trucks. Consider corner protectors, tarp repair kits, and other accessories to prolong the life of your tarp.
For one-stop shopping, we’ve assembled flatbed starter kits with tarps, tie downs, and essentials for hauling lumber, steel, or both. Be sure to check out our entire selection of Flatbed Trailer Equipment.
