Meaning of Lumber Tarps?
Lumber tarps are flatbed truck tarps made to cover cargo and protect it from the elements, including rain, snow, and any debris that might be on the road. Lumber tarps are typically made of vinyl, either 18 oz or 14 oz, and many have a drop-flap to cover the back of the load.
While there are many types of cargo covering tarps designed to accommodate specific types of loads (like bee hauling tarps, for instance), lumber tarps are popular because they can be used for a wide range of loads. They’re particularly helpful if you’re covering long or tall stacks or piles of some type of cargo, like stacks of wood.
Key Features of Lumber Tarps?
Lumber tarps have mainly four key features, which are described as below;
Heavy Duty Material:
Our lumber tarps are manufactured with heavy-duty vinyl with heat-sealed seams to completely waterproof a load.
Brass grommets cinched every 2 feet for convenient attachment.
Three Rows of D-rings:
Three rows of D-rings per side for incredibly precise tie-downs. The D-rings are box stitched with protection flaps to mitigate any risk from bungee hooks
We are using very lightweight, flexible fabric that doesn’t crack until the temperature hits -40 degrees Celsius.
Benefits of Lumber Tarps
One benefit of lumber tarps over steel tarps specifically is that lumber tarps are larger than steel tarps. Steel is more dense than lumber is, so steel loads are shorter - That’s why 4’ drop tarps are the most typical size for steel tarps, while 8’ drop tarps are more typical for lumber tarps.
Another benefit of lumber tarps is how adjustable they are. Sincere there are three rows of D-rings, the tarp can be heightened or shortened to cover different sizes of loads securely.
How to Use Lumber Tarps
The best way to make sure you’re using lumber tarps successfully is to get to know your tarp.
Learn which factors impact a lumber tarp’s quality rating (or tarp grade), fold and store your tarps properly, match you tarp with the right tie downs, and repair your tarps in a timely manner.
