What are Machine Tarps?
Machine Tarps are flatbed tarps specifically built with taller 10-foot foot drops to protect cargo loads from harsh environmental conditions on the road. As the name states, these tarps were designed with hauling machinery loads in mind.
These flatbed tarps are typically purchases in sets of two by haulers to fully cover a load. These tarps have 4 rows of triple-sewn Dee-Bands that can be adjusted to fit a variety of loads. All of our flatbed machine tarps are water and heat resistant to ensure that your cargo gets to its destination safely.
What makes a Machine Tarp?
There are several key components to these tarps, which we define as:
Heavy Duty PVC Coating
Our machine tarps are made from pure 18 oz. vinyl to prevent the tarp from fraying over time. This material is guaranteed to keep your load safe and dry through harsh weather conditions on the road.
Dee-Bands and Dee-Rings
Our Machine Tarps will feature 4 rows of Dee-Bands along the side and tail of the tarp. Dee-Bands are triple sewn onto the tarp in evenly spaced intervals up the side length.
Rust-resistant brass grommets are placed every 2 inches to allow haulers to secure the tarp with rubber bungees to the flatbed.
