Lightweight Steel Tarps combine heavy duty performance with low-impact usability. Other lightweight tarps, such as parachute tarps, airbag tarps, or 14oz tarps, just use thinner material, and therefore don't last as long. After researching and testing several options, we decided to make our lightweight tarps with Cordura®, an industrial-grade woven nylon fabric known for its superior abrasion resistance and heavy-duty performance.

Flatbed tarps take a beating, and Cordura takes it on the chin. You can drag it across asphalt, poke it with S-hooks, and tug on it all you want and it won't bat an eye. We use 14 oz vinyl on the top, end flap, and rain flaps, because while Cordura is highly water-resistant, it is possible for condensation to form if water pools and sits on top of it for an extended period of time. But since the Cordura is only on the side drops, water will roll right off the water-resistant fabric. So you can rest assured that your load will arrive safe and dry, and you won't need to go to the chiropractor after the job is done!

Cordura was invented by DuPont in 1929. Since then, it has been updated and innovated and is now used in a variety of applications, ranging from military bags to tires to motorcycle clothing to luggage and more. It has become the go-to fabric for industries where water resistance, strength, and durability are crucial. You can learn more about Cordura here.
