The wind out hood tarp system is the most common method of retractable load coverage. A hood tarp system is an easy to operate tarping system that quickly and effectively covers a load from ground level. It has a tarp attached to bows and blocks that move across a sliding surface via cables and pulleys. Wind out hood tarps can be controlled via a belt drive handle, a chain drive handle or using an electric motor. The three main types of wind out hood tarps are “Dust Suppression – Quarry Mesh”, “Waterproof – PVC” and “ High Temperature – Asphalt Application”.
