Quality sheeting to protect your trailer
STAS constantly invests to improve the design and quality of its tarpaulins on the basis of users’ experiences. Loss of load, inclement weather, and even theft – a tarpaulin now has a protective function more than ever before. And so, quality is what you need. Moreover, you choose for yourself how far you want to go in that respect. You can fit your trailer with a tarpaulin of standard, Panama or Carapax quality.
The standard B9000 quality gives you a high-quality tarpaulin. The polyester tarpaulin weighs 680g/m2 and has good breaking and rupture strength (3000 N and 300 N respectively). It can cope with the most severe weather conditions (from -30 to +70°C), is highly resistant to light (7-8), and has good fireproof qualities (< 100mm/min).
The Panama or B6000 tarpaulin quality is somewhat thicker and heavier (900g/m2). It is also used to make the sliding curtains in curtainside trailers. More vertical and horizontal threads provide extra breaking and rupture strength than with the standard quality. These amount to 4000 N and 600 N in the length and 4000 N and 500 N in the width respectively. This version has the same temperature resistance, light resistance and fire resistance as the standard quality.
Carapax is the strongest type of tarpaulin. We recommend it for loads with building rubble and branches. The tarpaulin has a layer of aramid and a layer of PVC. Aramid is a substance with exceptionally high tensile strength. It is also used, for instance, for bulletproof and fragmentation vests. And so, the tarpaulin won’t easily be damaged by branches and stones. It is also much harder to cut through this tarpaulin with a knife.
Whichever type you choose, easy handling is essential. The roll tarpaulins are fitted with a user-friendly catwalk so that they can be opened and closed in under five minutes. You can open a semi-automatic system like Cramaro in just one minute at the press of a button. Or you can operate it with a lever. And so, there’s something for everyone, for all applications and preferences.
