The trucking industry is very important to the American economy as it allows for the easy transport of goods and materials over large distances. To keep these items safe from weather and other environmental hazards, many trucking companies use tarps to cover the load they are hauling in their flatbeds. A quality tarp strap is needed to keep those tarps in place, and UP&R is the place to get those straps.
The GOLDLINE ® strap from UP&R is a must have product for all road fleets. Made in the USA in our Ohio manufacturing facility, the GOLDLINE ® strap is the number one brand of tarp straps for truckers and tarp strap users. Composed of ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) rubber, this strap has exceptional strength, durability and resistance to environmental factors such as UV radiation and ozone. The straps are available in sizes of 10”, 15”, 21”, 31”, and 41” and made for the transportation, recreational vehicle, and marine industries.
UP&R also offers the SILVERLINE ® brand of tarp straps as an alternative product. These straps are made of natural rubber and are popular in northern areas as well as Canada, because even in frigid conditions they remain flexible. Advantages of these straps include a high initial strength and UV inhibitors, but a shorter life span than GOLDLINE ® straps. The S hooks for both brands are also manufactured in the USA, as UP&R has the single-source, in-house manufacturing capabilities that cannot be matched by any other tarp strap manufacturer.
UP&R offers additional products including rubber tie downs, plastic pipe gaskets, and cast iron coupling gaskets. Capabilities also include the manufacturing of rubber molded parts, rubber extruded parts and plastic extruded parts for the transportation and cargo control market, construction and pipe manufacturers market, and the automotive OE supply chain market.
