Different Tarps for Different Types

What sort of tarp is best for you? Simple question; the answer depends all on you. There are many uses for tarps; roof covers, machinery covers, shelter tarps/walls, grain covers, truck tarpaulins and so much more.

For those farmers out there slaving under Australia’s intense heat who often have livestock out in the fields; a quick solution for instant shade would be a tarp set up as a shelter cover. Not limited by size, farmers can cover large portions of land and provide their animals with a nice cool spot to rest and graze.

Another use farmers can utilize would be heavy duty tarps as ground cover. This is beneficial under hay stacks that are out in the field and weather. Used as a layer of protection between the bottom bails and the moisture of the earth beneath the stack, the tarp prevents the hay from being ruined before it has a chance to be used or sold.
A common use for tarps would be for covering items of value from the weather. This can be as simple as throwing a tarp over a pile of wood to stop it from getting wet or rolling a tarp cover out over a truck bin to protect a load while travelling.

Heavy duty tarpaulins are commonly seen decorating Australia’s truck bins with the added benefit of keeping their loads water proof and safe from the harsh heat. With your money’s worth guaranteed, this is a tarp any truckie can trust.


heavy duty tarps


The reliability of a heavy duty tarp is brought under the microscope when it comes to covering damaged areas like broken walls and roofs. For those who are awaiting a repair, a heavy duty tarp cover works perfectly for protecting those still under damaged roofs from the weather outside. They can help keep out rain and water from any storms causing the damage as well as preventing further destruction until you can organise the roof to be fixed.

Builders on construction sites can benefit from a heavy duty tarp as well. They can be used to cover worked ground as foundations are laid or cover buildings that are still open from the weather. They can also be used to cover up valuable equipment for days at a time as well as smaller vehicles when not in use.

For men and their toys, heavy duty tarps are ideal for covering up your prized vehicles. Every guy has that special car that is only allowed out on the road when the suns out, no wind blowing up leaves and not a cloud for miles. These are the men who are so careful, they practically need a tarp in the boot ready on hand in case the weather suddenly turns dark. Tarps are simple in the way that they compact down and do not take up much room and are easy to just unfurl and throw over your possession in a moments notice. Plus they are perfect for keeping out the dust when those precious babies are stored away in the shed.
