Heavy Duty Tarps for Construction, Agricultural, Industrial and Mining Applications
Are you looking for a heavy duty Tarpaulin? Where should you look? There are many options out there; online shops, hardware stores, one man band tarpaulin guys, you name it! One thing they all have in common is they all say their tarps are heavy duty!… or in some instances Extra Heavy Duty! But what do they mean? Who should you believe?
Don’t be caught out, a heavy duty tarpaulin in a PVC material would normally be approximately 900 gsm in weight, these are used for roll tarps in the transport industry. When it comes to an Extra Heavy Duty PVC Tarpaulin, the material would normally be approximately 1000+ gsm and above in weight, which are ideal for Water bladders, pillow tanks and other similar specialised applications. If you are considering a PP or PE (Polypropylene or Polyethylene) Tarpaulin, approximately 300- 360 gsm would be considered Heavy Duty and an Extra Heavy Duty Tarpaulin in PP or PE (Polypropylene or Polyethylene), would be around 400+ gsm. In saying this, it’s always best to speak to your specialist tarpaulin manufacturer for advice on your specific needs, as there are applications where some materials will outperform others regardless of weight and also be more cost effective. This could be due to UV resistance, flex cracking resistance, manual handling and your specific application.
