Below is some educational information about steel tarps:
Super heavy-duty steel tarps for covering loads of steel on your truck. The steel tarps are usually 16' wide, so they will have a 4' side drop on an 8' wide load. The common steel tarp for big trucks is 16' wide x 27' long. Grommets are installed all around the hem of the steel tarp plus 2 rows of D rings every 24" on each long side. The D rings are sewn under continuous rows of 2" seat belt webbing and placed 2' and 4' up from the edge (hem), so that the opposing top rows on each side are 8' apart. The trucking industry depends of quality when it comes to steel tarps and these covers are sure to deliver.
