Theft Prevention Mesh

The Theft prevention material helps protect your cargo from theft by preventing thieves from cutting through the tarpaulins & tautliners. This is obtained by bonding the anti theft material onto the inside of the tautliners.

The theft prevention material is woven with a steel cable, light enough to not effect the weight of the tarpaulins & tautliners and flexible enough to allow for ease of use while protecting your cargo from thieves using sharp blades and knives to enter your vehicles.
