Tarps & More in Melbourne

How do you choose a tarpaulin?

The first thing to do is measure the object or objects you’re looking to cover with your tarpaulin. If you need to cover a 3 dimensional object (e.g a pile of wood) be sure to measure all sides to get an good idea. If you have a pile of wood that is 4ft high, 3ft wide and 10ft long, you’ll need to calculate 4′ + 4′ + 3′ for the sides, then 4′ + 10′ + 4′ for the length. This will allow for the tarpaulin to cover all sides to the ground.

Next, decide the quality of the tarpaulin. What are you covering? Is it valuable? What weather conditions will the tarpaulin be subjected to? How long will the tarpaulin be exposed etc.
