GREENCASTLE, Pa. - Jerr-Dan Corp. and Aero Industries, a national leader in tarping systems, have introduced a new, easy-to-operate rolling tarp model. Available only to the carrier bed market through Jerr-Dan, this new model features the best features and benefits in the sliding tarp industry.

Based on Aero Industries Conestoga 2 rolling tarp system - named for the covered wagons of early pioneers - the system features an innovative design that easily covers and uncovers a carrier deck in seconds. Instead of having to climb over the carrier deck to tie down a tarp, the driver can walk alongside and cover a vehicle in seconds.

The Jerr-Dan/Aero Industries system saves time, boosts productivity and enhances profitability. Other key features include:

· A patented wheel and track system where steel wheels and a stainless steel track insert work to smooth out the process of opening and closing. The solid wheel bearings are maintenance free.

· A rear-locking system that increases the tarp's tension while securing the load from ground level, for safe and smooth operation. Unlike other designs, all lock components travel with the rear bow assembly and there are no cumbersome loading obstructions and no hardware to remove or store.

· A patented system of spring shocks on the uplift bows that reduces vibration from road conditions, keeping the tarp tight and reducing wear on the uplift bows. The uplift bows are low maintenance, with no fasteners, pins or bushings to service or replace.

· A 30-inch rear bow assembly that adds stability to the system, slides easily, and will not flex while opening and closing the system. The front of the system is fastened to a U.S. DOT rated bulkhead.

· A strong, coated vinyl tarp, available in several colors, that works without cables to provide a tight, seamless cover.
