Superior quality poly tarps or construction tarps can be pretty handy in a wide range of situations, and many of them may never have occurred to you. In the agriculture sector, for instance, the heavy duty poly tarps, fire retardant tarps or even the standard tarps come in very handy. As a matter of fact, there are endless possibilities when it comes to using the poly tarps in our day to day environments. The adaptability and great versatility of the high-quality poly tarps make them indispensable for construction sites, campsites and more.
Campsites, in particular, will be at a significant advantage when they have tarps in the right size and under certain conditions, it can even be a lifesaver. Heavy duty tarps, such as ABC Tarps has, can be used in a variety of situations, especially in camping sites. Below are the few examples:
- Blocking heavy winds to the campsite and prevent campfire from getting extinguished
- Similarly when you forget the ‘rainfly’ the tarp comes in as the next aid to give you protection from rain.
- A tarp can protect the bottom of the tent giving it a more even surface with lesser abrasiveness.
- These are some of the basic applications for anyone who is used too frequently sleeping under the stars or love life outdoors.
Poly tarps for the trucking industry
Most Australian states now have stringent regulations governing securing of truckloads. Apart from preventing tragedies, these regulations are also intended to prevent damages to vehicles from losing materials such as gravel. Consequently, tarps are essential to cover a wide range of loads including scrap metal, asbestos and more. Even smaller tippers are required to cover their loads. To cater to this segment, the tarps industry has even developed electric as well as automated tarps that take away the laborious task of getting on top of the load and physically securing the tarps. Electric tarps can be controlled either through the controls wired into the vehicle’s electrical systems or through a remote control.
Tarps for homeowners
Homeowners too will find the poly tarps or canvas tarps very convenient whenever they need to cover things lying outside the home to protect it from the vagaries of weather. Similarly, during inclement weather, tarps are a great help in preventing things from blowing away.tarps are a great help in preventing things from blowing away.In campsites, the tarps are used to provide ground seating providing protection against dirt and dampness.
In homes that have no garage or another type of protection for the vehicles, tarps are handy to keep the vehicles protected and bungee cords can be used to secure the tarps around the vehicle. Providing shade over a poolside or garden to protect an outdoor dining space is another common use of poly tarps in homes.
Mesh tarps, as the name suggests, provide some shade to the garden while still allowing adequate light to pass so that the plants remain healthy. They also come in handy over a frame when you need to protect an outdoor space for the nursery or for cleaning and sorting the produce from your garden.
Home maintenance and construction sites
Tarps can be used as drop clothes when you undertake painting of your homes or carrying out any type of remodelling. This will prevent potential debris from falling over into the neighbour’s premises. Availability in a wide range of sizes also makes it convenient to cover an entire floor/carpet and protect the surface from paint drops and other spills.
Within the construction industry, there is a wide range of applications. At construction sites, the tarps are a huge help in erecting temporary fencing to prevent unwanted men and material entering the area, debris flying around and creating nuisance for neighbours, keeping some of the construction material covered for use later, creating temporary shelters for construction workers, visiting supervisors and other people engaged with the project etc.
Construction of any structure also means transporting a wide spectrum of materials like wood, bricks, sand, cement, tiles, and so forth. All these materials need to be covered during transportation and some of them may need cover even at the construction site since the consumption will be gradual and protection from the elements is essential.
Heavy duty tarps
Apart from the regular poly tarps for varying applications, we also come across heavy duty tarps for special applications. These are designed to resist very high level of wear and tear and withstand all the weather systems but also uniquely ideal for situations that call for extra protection from water. The polythene fabric employed in manufacturing heavy duty tarps is thicker with a mesh count of 12×14 with an ideal blend of breathability as well as coverage. These are also resistant to mould, mildew, and acid allowing minimal air to pass through. Additional chemical treatment further ensures protection from sun rays which can promote fading, warping and cracking.
These tough features make the heavy duty tarps ideal for application in areas like boats, RVs, golf carts, Patio furniture and cars. For industrial and commercial applications too, the heavy duty tarps make an excellent choice due to its superior strength and durability to take on hard use as well as tough weather. They are also your best quick solution for relief from leaky roofs.
Insulated tarps are also known commercially as insult tarps and are designed to keep cold or heat our or in within a specified area. These tarps come with insulation inside and a polyethene cover outside ensuring that the surface beneath the tarp remains hot or cold by preventing impact from external temperature.
The biggest advantage of the poly tarps is that they are very flexible and can, therefore, be conveniently folded and stored away when they are not being used.
