Safe Loads = Safer Roads
This Road Safety week, we wanted to explain why Road safety is paramount to us and behind everything we design & manufacture. Our load covering systems are all designed to protect not only the load but road users which has a profound effect on every sector we work with. Whether it’s a trailer carrying waste, scrap metal or wood, or tippers carrying aggregate, we have specifically designed solutions that work for every load.
A tarp is a tarp right? Well you would be forgiven for thinking so, but our tarpologists work with a vast array of materials and procedures designed for each specific vehicle and more importantly load. For instance, scrap metal hauliers would need a super strong mesh. This mesh has been developed to withstand runs when caught by sharp metal, ensuring it continues to cover the load regardless of early wear & tear. Skiploaders would benefit from our full range of options, with our economical mesh more than man enough for the task. Our PVC tarpaulins are perfect for asphalt and loads which need protecting from the elements. So these would be great options for the farming industry too. They have all been developed to protect the load, the haulier and the road user. As all our Tarpaulins are designed in-house, there isn’t a load we can’t cover. We offer side-flaps for extra safety, wear patches & kador strips, keeping sheet changes swift and safe and your driver in the safety of the cab for longer.
Where do we start? For over 25 years, we have made load covering our passion. Founded by a former haulier, we know exactly who our market is & the challenges that hauliers face year on year. That’s why road safety is so important to us, not only the public, but also the drivers & businesses alike. Our systems are specifically designed for each vehicle, application & road legislation across UK, Europe & the world. We provide front-to-rear and side-to-side sheeting systems with manual, semi-automatic, electric, pneumatic and hydraulic power options. These also include remote control and in-cab operating, keeping the driver safe & out of harm’s way. The team here keep up to date with the ever changing road legislations ensuring our services meet the demands of our market and the public.
Our product design department work stringently to deliver safe covering from cab or ground level, being sure to keep any moving parts within vehicle width restrictions with a variety of extra safety features. Tower based options offer within-width covering for heaped loads – easy to install and safe to operate. Our front-to-rear tipper and trailer options are fully automatic and cover loads in seconds, powered from within the cab or using a remote control. Side to side options have been developed to assist rear tipping trailers, avoiding tailgates and protecting the load, haulier and public when in transit.
Look out for the Transcover tag at the rear of the vehicle, if you see it, you know you’re protected on the road. Secured loads = safer roads!
