Steel tarps are similar to lumber tarps – minus the end flap – and designed to protect flatbed loads of steel rods, sheets, cables, and other such lower-profile materials for long-haul truckers. A professional-grade steel tarp shields your cargo from all types of weather, as well as stone chips and other damage.
Our professional-grade flatbed tarps offer excellent UV resistance to limit fading. Plus, they are tear-resistant, mildew resistant, and feature reinforced edges and abrasion-resistant padding underneath each D-ring for added protection and durability.
14 oz and 18 oz Tarp Options
We offer steel cargo tarps in two different weighted materials, providing flexibility in choosing the right steel tarp for your application. Both options are made from a durable and waterproof PVC-coated polyester material.
Heavy-duty truck tarps are made with 18 oz. PVC-coated polyester and are designed to stand up to the harshest conditions you may encounter on the road. 18 oz tarps provide superior cargo protection against wind, snow, rain, sun, and road debris, so you can have the utmost confidence that your shipment will arrive at its destination undamaged.
Our lightweight steel tarps are made using the 14 oz tarp material and are more portable and easier to handle than heavy-duty versions, all without sacrificing quality or durability.
Tarp Usage and Care Tips
Tarping a load properly is an important and inexpensive way to help protect your tarp investment. Minimizing the abrasion of the tarp against the load will help extend its life. Tightly secure the tarp with plenty of rubber tarp straps and rubber rope, along with other tie-down equipment to limit damage from whipping in the wind. Also, pad sharp edges of the load with corner protectors or moving blankets. Don’t delay in fixing cuts and holes. On-the-spot tarp repair kits can keep minor damage from becoming a larger problem, saving you valuable time and money.
