Tarpaulin Manufacturing and Repairs Load Lock Security Systems

A load lock security system from Aero Truck Tarps is the solution whether you’re attempting to load unique goods, save time on tarping, or both. Our tarp system products include rolling tarp systems that offer security and convenience. Aero Truck tarp systems are completely adaptable for any trailer. They may save drivers up to two hours of tarping time each day. These tarp systems are a safe, easy, and time-saving option. In addition, unlike other truck tarp systems, Aero Truck custom adjusts each tarp panel to precisely match the camber of your trailer.

The load lock system is made up of a specially designed steel reinforced strong steel mesh that is put underneath the tarpaulin in such a manner that no one equipped with a panga or other kind of cutting instrument will be able to obtain access and assist themselves to the cargo.

Aero Truck will display their safe curtain load securing tarpaulin. The name is self-explanatory: Tautliner Defence System. It has high-strength spring steel strips incorporated in vertical PVC tunnel pockets on the side tarpaulins. Aero Truck now provides load securing via side tarpaulin, which eliminates the need for traditional side slats.


Vehicle superstructures with tarpaulins are popular when products need to get shielded from the weather during transit. Tarps are popular because they combine lightweight with excellent wind and weather protection. Aero Truck load lock security systems have been the quality standard for truck tarpaulins for decades. Aero Truck product line comprises a diverse selection of truck coverings.

  • Steel load-barrier protection that is impenetrable; prevents load theft from taught lines and curtainsiders (all materials).
  • Allows unlimited and unrestricted usage of standard curtain operation.
  • Fast and simple installation on new tarps or retrofitting.
  • SA design is patented, and it gets produced locally.

Advantages of tarpaulin load lock security system

The Tautliner defense system not only makes handling simpler, safer, and quicker, but it also saves weight. The safe tarpaulin curtain is about 90 kg lighter than traditional side curtains with side slats. Another benefit is that the embedded spring steel strips provide vertical anti-theft protection. Only cutting to the next spring steel strip is feasible if the tarp is intentionally cut. The repair is as simple as it is with a conventional side tarpaulin. Still, you don’t have to worry about that because Aero Truck manufactures the tarpaulin and repairs them in case of any damage. Furthermore, workplace hazards caused by collapsing side slats are a thing of the past.
