How long are your Truck Rolltarps lasting?
Are your truck tarps made from top quality materials?
Thought we’d share these pics that were sent through from one of our roll tarp clients up in the Pilbara! Great to see our products in action – and what an impressive rig this is!
The constant wear and stress on tarps used in this region is what sets this market apart from all the others. You need the most durable and rugged tarping systems available, and you can trust Westarp’s decades of expertise and leadership in this market. If you are looking for high UV and Tear-Resistant Tarps that are tough and can withstand Australia’s harshest environments, you have come to the right place.
Manufacturing Grain Bin Tarps, Bulk Haulage Tarps or fitted tarps to suit the hydraulic lift off roof bins, we produce to the varied requirements and specifications of all these industries.
Westarp is a specialist supplier utilising the latest machines and technology within its manufacturing processes, all of which operate under our ISO certified management system for Quality and OHS.
Westarp sources and uses only premium quality PVC materials for the production of its Roll Tarps and fitted truck tarps unless a particular quality alternative fabric is specified by the client. The weight of our Rolltarp material is generally made from 900gsm PVC with high wear areas being 1800gsm.
Often you will hear the words Heavy Duty, UV stabilised, heavy this, heavy that! Note that material used for roll tarps across Australia varies from Tarp Manufacturer to Tarp Manufacturer, and with this comes the variations in;
- Nominal Weight
- UV Resistance
- UV Coating Ingredients
- UV Coating Thickness
- Fire Ratings
- Tear Strength
- Fabric Finish and Weldability (for manufacture and repairs)
- Fabric Scrim Makeup
- Flex Cracking Resistance
We feel that over the years we have nailed it when it comes to Truck Roll Tarps.
How many years should my Roll Tarp last?
This can depend on the materials used, the design of the tarp, the quality of the Install, how it is used and the amount of exposure to the sun. Some examples are below….
One of our long-standing customers who runs approx. 70+ grain/bulk haulage trucks, with most running 24hrs a day in a demanding environment, says he usually gets 5yrs out of a Westarp Rolltarp.
Another customer recently replaced his Chaser Bin Roll Tarp which was 15yrs old!! This is parked in a shed when not in use and is only used during harvest and a little at seeding.
Working with Westarp you will find passionate and customer centric team who are committed to excellent service, high quality products and producing the right product competitively and on time.
