Flatbed Rolling Tarp Systems

This is the easiest and best way to tarp flatbed loads – a rolling tarp system for flatbed trailers. But, it is also the most expensive!

In light of that, we still offer Lumber & Steel tarps built by our team in Ontario, Canada.

Lumber Tarps

Lumber tarps are designed for hauling lumber loads on flatbed trucks. They provide protection from weather elements, like rain, snow, and ice, and help secure lumber stacks during transportation.

These tarps are made from high-quality materials, such as 16oz Trison Advantage vinyl, which is waterproof and cold crack resistant up to -40 degrees Celsius and Fahrenheit. Lumber tarps come in various sizes and configurations, such as 2, 3, or 4-piece sets, with different drop sizes to accommodate different load heights Lumber Tarps.

Steel Tarps

Similar to lumber tarps, steel tarps protect and secure steel loads on flatbed trucks. These tarps usually cover a load of steel 4′ tall and 8′ wide and are made from lightweight and durable materials, such as the 16oz Trison Advantage vinyl Steel Tarps.

16' x 27' Steel Tarp

They are also available in various sizes and configurations, including 2, 3, or 4-piece sets. Steel tarps are waterproof and feature strong grommets, D-rings, and edge hems to secure the tarp in place during transport.

Smoke Tarps

Smoke tarps are typically smaller tarps used to protect the front of a load from exhaust fumes, dirt, and debris. They are placed over the load to ensure that it stays clean during transportation. Smoke tarps are often made of durable materials similar to those used in lumber and steel tarps, offering protection against various weather conditions and damage.

Machinery Tarps

Machinery tarps are specifically designed to cover and secure heavy machinery during transportation. They are made from durable materials to protect the machinery from weather elements, dirt, and debris. Machinery tarps can be customized to fit different machinery sizes and shapes, ensuring a secure and protective cover for any heavy equipment.

Coil Tarps

Coil tarps are designed to protect and secure coiled or rolled materials, such as steel, aluminum, or cables, during transportation. They are shaped to fit around the coils, providing complete coverage and protection from the elements and potential damage. Like other flatbed tarps, coil tarps are made from strong and durable materials, such as vinyl or parachute tarps, to withstand various weather conditions and secure the load during transport.

Materials and Quality

Flatbed tarps are essential for protecting cargo during transportation, and choosing the right tarp with high-quality materials is crucial for ensuring that the items stay secure and undamaged. There are generally two types of materials used for flatbed tarps: heavy-duty vinyl and lightweight, tear-resistant fabric. Both types offer unique benefits depending on the nature of the cargo and the specific needs of the hauler.

Heavy-duty 16 oz. vinyl tarps are waterproof, making them the ideal choice for protecting cargo from rain, snow, and other harsh weather conditions. These tarps are made from quality materials to ensure maximum durability and long-lasting use. With a rugged construction, 16 oz. vinyl tarps can withstand the demands of various industries, including lumber, steel, and machinery transport.

Generally, lightweight tarps come in standard 10 oz., or we can do 16oz centers with lightweight sides – offering a balance between durability and weight.

When selecting a flatbed tarp, the value is an essential consideration. High-quality materials and construction not only offer better protection for cargo but also contribute to a longer lifespan, resulting in cost savings over time. Choosing a tarp made from reliable materials, such as heavy-duty 16 oz. vinyl or durable 10 oz. fabric ensures a wise investment and quality performance.

In conclusion, flatbed tarps are critical for safe and secure cargo transportation, and the materials and quality of the tarp significantly impact its effectiveness. By opting for heavy-duty vinyl or lightweight tarps, haulers can find the most suitable solution for their needs, ensuring their cargo stays well-protected while maximizing value.

Flatbed Tarps Features


Flatbed tarps are equipped with stainless steel grommets, which are essential for securing the tarp over cargo. These grommets provide a durable and reliable attachment point for ropes or straps, ensuring that the tarp stays in place throughout the journey. Stainless steel grommets are an excellent choice due to their resistance to corrosion and ability to withstand harsh weather conditions without fraying or breaking.


In addition to grommets, flatbed tarps feature d-rings. These are nickel plated steel, and ensure you have lots of tie downs across your tarp.


Flatbed tarps are available in various sizes, with options like 6-foot and 8-foot drop tarps catering to the needs of haulers hauling different types of cargo. These tarps are typically purchased in sets of two for complete coverage of the loaded materials. They are made from durable materials like 10 oz or 16 oz vinyl.

Waterproof and Heavy Duty

One of the primary functions of flatbed tarps is to protect cargo from the elements, such as rain and snow. To achieve this, they are made with a heavy-duty PVC coating that ensures complete waterproofing. This coating also provides added durability, making the tarps suitable for long-lasting use under harsh conditions.

Flatbed Tarp Applications

Flatbed tarps play a critical role in the trucking industry, as they protect cargo and ensure it reaches destinations safely. The primary purpose of these tarps is to shield the load on flatbed trucks or trailers from external elements such as weather, debris, and other hazards on the road.

There are several types of flatbed tarps designed for specific cargo loads, including lumber tarps, steel tarps, and coil tarps. Lumber tarps are generally used for securing and protecting lumber, beams, or other wooden materials. On the other hand, steel tarps are designed to handle heavy-duty items like steel cables, pipes, and sheets. Coil tarps are specialized tarps created to protect and secure coils of steel, aluminum, or other materials.

To ensure maximum protection and safety, truckers and haulers often use various cargo control devices alongside flatbed tarps. Some of these devices include ratchets and ratchet straps, winches and winch straps, tarp straps, corner protectors, chains, and chain binders. Additionally, bungees can provide extra stability to the tarps, preventing them from flapping due to wind or other road conditions.

Flatbed truck tarps not only protect cargo and ensure the safety of other road users, but they also contribute to keeping haulers compliant with regulations. Proper usage of tarpaulins and cargo control devices results in secure, stable loads that minimize the risk of accidents and liabilities within the hauling business.

In conclusion, flatbed tarps are an essential tool for truckers in the transportation industry. They protect various types of cargo, maintain compliance with road safety regulations and contribute to the overall efficiency of the hauling process. When combined with an array of cargo control devices, these tarps deliver confidence and security to truckers and haulers alike.
