At Shur-Co®, we use the finest fabrics available, like solid vinyl-coated fabric with built-in UV inhibitors to reduce sun damage and fading. All of our fabrics are tested for tear strength, abrasion resistance, stitch and seam strength and cold-temperature flexibility and are designed to meet and exceed our extensive performance criteria. Shur-Co® tarps won't shrink, rot or mildew.
With our Value Series tarps, the tarp is narrower and has shorter tensioning straps than our Super Duty tarps. The Value Series is an economical choice with the same 12-month warranty as the Super Duty but can limit the user’s ability to tarp over heaped loads. Also, these tarps are only available in an 18-ounce fabric weight.
Our step-up Super-Duty tarps are available in two weights – 18 ounce and 22 ounce. This tarp is wider than the Value Series tarp and built in the same fashion you see on most new grain trailers. The longer tensioning straps provide slightly better tightening of the tarp while the extra width makes tarping heaped loads easier. If you are hauling aggregates or something other than small grains, using a Super Duty 22-ounce tarp is recommended.
Available colors include: Black (Standard), Royal, White, Green, Tan, Red, Maroon, Marine, Brown, Orange, Grape, Gray and Yellow.
In 2014, we introduced DiamondCore™ premium fabric. Exclusive to Shur-Co®, DiamondCore™ provides added material, additional reinforcement straps and unparalleled abrasion resistance. Unlike diamonds, no tarp lasts forever, but DiamondCore™ offers rock-solid quality backed by a 24-month warranty – the best in the industry. It is currently only available in black.

Shur-Co® quality shows, even in the smallest details. Reinforced stitching adds strength at stress points, reducing the likelihood of tears. Seams are heat welded for a watertight bond between panels; the added thickness creates an improved moisture barrier. Durable webbing straps are added to increase wear and durability in areas where the tarp can see abrasion.
(Please be aware that our standard tarp design has these webbing straps running up and over the top rail edge on applications for grain carts, trailers and tenders. Because they are sewn to the tarp, the stitching pierces the vinyl-coated material and can allow for minimal water seepage. This stitching can also allow some light to penetrate the inside of the box; it is not considered a defect in the tarp.)
VINYL TARP AND DIAMONDCORE™ WARRANTY
Our standard 12-month warranty covers normal use of tarps and warrants against premature wear from workmanship or material defects. Our 24-month DiamondCore™ warranty also covers tearing on the stitching line due to over torquing of the tarp in the open/closed position for 24 months from the manufacture date. (This warranty only covers tarps used in standard small grain-handling applications on grain trailers.) Warranty is void if used with any electric tarp system other than Shur-Co’s 4500 Series HD. Warranty does not cover Standard Mesh Tarps, Specialty Mesh Tarps, Waterproof Asphalt Tarps or Water-Resistant Asphalt Tarps.
