New Website Pages for Wire Rope and Winch Strap Products

We’ve been doing a little work on our USCargoControl.com website, with a goal of making it easier for customers to choose exactly what they need. Some products are available in so many sizes and configurations it can be difficult to wade through them all to find exactly what you’re looking for. Our winch straps and wire rope categories were the first to be updated.

Winch straps are now first narrowed down by color selection (yellow, blue, red, green), then by hardware type (flat hook, wire hook, etc.). There is also still an option to shop for truck winches by sizes as well, with links that show all 4″ winch straps, 3″ winch straps, and 2″ winch straps.

Flatbed Tarps: Lumber Tarps and Steel Tarps

Flatbed truck tarps are an essential for any flatbed truck driver. There are differences between a lumber tarp and a steel tarp, as well as features to look for in both.

Lumber tarp
A lumber tarp is generally used for long haul truckers to protect lumber, hay, pallets, and other bulky cargo. It is designed with a flap to fully cover the ends of the load.

One of our best-selling heavy duty lumber tarps unfolded:

Steel tarp
A steel tarp are sometimes sized slightly smaller than a lumber tarp and is four-sided to protect loads of steel rods, sheets, cables, etc. that have a lower profile.

Weights and construction
Tarps also come in different weights so there’s something that will work for nearly any job. Although all of our tarps are made of PVC-coated polyester for excellent tear resistance, the weight of the fabric differs between the lightweight, mid-weight and heavy-duty styles. Depending on the drop size (height), each tarp has either two or three rows of D-rings running the length of the tarp

The d-ring construction also differs slightly. Lightweight and midweight tarps are designed with fabric abrasion strips that run the entire length of the tarp to add protection:

Heavyweight tarps have additional fabric abrasion pads stitched to the tarp underneath the D-ring:
