SlipSki Frequently Asked Questions

The shape and the construction of our SlipSki covers are all implemented to combat high wind speeds and ensure that your SlipSki cover will protect your investment in a multitude of harsh environments. We have attached one of our SlipSki covers to a flat bed trailer and exposed it to winds speeds in excess of 70mph for thousands of miles and countless hours without any failures. Please watch the video in our link below to see the kind of stress we exposed to our SlipSki cover.

Common uses of tarps – dump trucks, trailers, equipment, athletic fields, canopies, tents, frame construction, 5-sided covers, industrial and any application that requires a great cover

Because of the modular design of our cover we can mount it on a variety of surfaces and the use of our cantilever design means that our sliding covers can function on a variety of surfaces. We recommend the surface is reasonably flat for best operation and of coarse the smoother the surface the easier it will be to operate. Although you can mount it to a variety of surfaces it is recommend that concrete or a flat wood dock is used for optimal operation of slide and optimal wind resistance.

As seen above the common uses of these tarps goes to show the durability that should be expected of our tarps. Along with our 5-year warranty, the fact that it is common for these tarps to last more than 5 years in industrial use will give you peace of mind.

The system that we implement to tighten and secure our tarps makes changing them fast and simple. Remove the quick-release straps, Slide out the pole, remove the bungies and the tarp is free to remove. All in all the process takes 2 people no longer than 30 minutes to remove and about 45 minutes to install.

Ez installation and removal of cover material. 2 people no more than an hour for each operation. While it is possible to install one by yourself it would be highly recommended to have at least one other person to assist you.
