A Look At Steel Tarps
Usually when you hear the word tarp, you think of a large cloth like material that is used for building and home improvement projects. But what are steel tarps? Although these are not made from steel, they are extremely heavy duty and are used for covering loads of steel or other dangerous or hazardous materials. The steel tarps come in a variety of different sizes, but the most common is 16 by 25 feet. This size will easily cover the truck bed and allow for a four foot side drop. Many steel tarps are also treated with a special chemical coating to ensure that they can withstand extreme temperatures. Our steel tarps here at Tarps Plus are treated. It is important that the tarp does not freeze and break even in the coldest temperatures. Our steel tarps are also waterproof to keep the rain from rusting the materials that are being covered and protected. While there are a few different colors of steel tarps available, black is most common, as it looks professional, also camouflaging the materials that are underneath. This tarp was designed to keep loads on the back of trucks protected and in place while they are in transportation to another location. From steel rods to plywood, it can protect materials from the weather and keep them secure.

Steel tarps will also have heavy duty grommets installed all around the edge of the hem. These are usually placed about twenty-four inches apart. This ensures that the person using it is able to secure it and tie it down easily and keep it in place for long periods of time. There are a number of professional industries that use these items regularly. These products have proven that they are durable and long lasting. Anyone dealing with hazardous materials needs to know that they are putting their trust in a high quality product.
