We supply customized and standard shipping container covers for open top containers. This includes the most common 20 ft and 40 ft containers. The covers are made to provide safety and protection for all cargo types. We are competitively priced and can supply any type of cover per your drawing with eyelets and TIR cord fitted. Available in both stocked and custom sizes.
Secure Tie Down Grommets
These covers have grommets at the corner and along the sides to fasten to the lashing bars or rings of the container via the TIR cable. We can supply the TIR cable as well. TIR stands for “Transports Internationaux Routiers”. This is a customs convention for the international transportation of goods. TIR cable is used in open-top containers and the truck tarpaulin industry.
Ribbed Cross Members
Your container should already be equipped with cross members (also called roof bows) that support the tarp cover. If you need these as well please inform ALCO and we can try and source them.

Open top container tarpaulins are designed with the knowledge that weather can be harsh and unpredictable by being exposed UV light from the sun. This requires the vinyl material to be UV treated for years of use.
Keeping the rain out is no problem for the open top container tarpaulin. The Vinyl is waterproof and weatherproof to keep the inside dry when the rain is pouring down. It protects the contents inside of the container.
When the wind is blowing you want to keep your goods from blowing around. With the use of the shipping container tarps for your container you will be protected. The tarp cover will keep the wind at bay.
