Roll Tarps For Chip Trailers


We’re North America’s largest chip truck tarp manufacturer. We understand that woodchip and bulk hauling is a constantly changing industry. After all, Central Tarp has been there from the start, working alongside Canada’s leading chip and sawdust hauling fleets, along with chip trailer manufacturers.

These relationships have helped us better understand the specific needs of our clients, and each tarp is customized to not only meet those needs, but provide the longest lasting tarp possible. Here are some of the key features of a Central Tarp roll tarp for a chip trailer:


Longest Lasting, Most Durable Tarps in the Industry: Custom chip truck tarps from Central Tarp commonly last up to 5 to 7 years or longer. Far out lasting the competition!


R.F. Welded Seams: 10 times stronger than sewn seams and no thread to rot. Where sewing is required, Central uses high quality, U.V. resistant industrial thread.


Double Layered Pipe Pockets:  All pockets have two layers of vinyl for extra wear protection.


Heavy-Duty Load Strap: We use top-grade, high-tenacity load strap webbing for all tie downs. Twice as strong as seat belt webbing, high abrasion resistance and longer lasting.

Highest Quality Vinyl Available:  All of Central Tarp’s tarps are made using Premium Shelter-Rite™ vinyl. This vinyl has proven itself in the field and in the lab to be far superior to other common vinyls. Shelter-Rite™ vinyl has many patented technologies that make give it exception performance against wind and U.V. break down.


Anti-Abrasion Strap Covers: All tie down straps are protected by an additional layer of vinyl to protect against wood chip abrasion.


Anti-Wear, Hot Forged, Double Bar “D” Rings: All tie down rings have an extra bar to prevent the “D” ring from turning on the webbing. All rings are plated for corrosion resistance and are hot forged for maximum strength. Every chip tarp should have this feature.


Anti-Abrasion, Heavy Duty tarp thread: Central tarp uses a premium tarp thread designed specifically for its performance in the truck tarp industry. This thread is designed to lay very flat against the tarp, unlike regular thread that is more round in shape.

This significantly reduces abrasion. This thread also has a much higher break strength, with a premium grade U.V. inhibitor.

All of our products are manufactured exclusively in North America.
