Dura - Aluminum Arm, Flip Tarp System
The lower chain driven crank assembly provides positive traction to reduce operating time. All components are plated for corrosion resistance. The Hydro chain is treated to provide maximum corrosion resistance while maintaining the Enclosed helical torsion springs attached to the aluminum arm on both sides of the trailer provide equal resistance and tension during operation.The aluminum arms are stronger than Steel and are the most durable on the market.Cast aluminum elbows together with the extruded aluminum arms create superior strength and corrosion resistance.An aluminum checker plate wind deflector comes standard on all DURA-FLIP systems.
The rear lock-mechanism utilizes a hook and grab technique integrated onto the rear cross-member.
