QVS Guide To Tarpaulins

Tarpaulins are used as covers or groundsheets. Typical uses are for covering trailers, boats, cars, roofs, animal feed and hay etc. They are chiefly made up of a fabric or plastic (cotton canvas, PVC, polyethelene etc..) and are hemmed on every side of the width and length, containing eyelets to allow for securing. When purchasing, there are a few things to look out for concerning the quality of a tarpaulin; regardless of the material of which its constructed. This first is its weight, measured in grammes per square metre (GSM), effectively the higher the number the more durable the sheet. Other signs of quality include UV stabilisation, it being 100% waterproof and having reinforced hems; these will all help to lengthen the life of a tarp, whether it is used inside or outside.

Most suppliers will advertise a tarpaulin with the 'cut size'; these are the dimensions of the sheet before it is hemmed and completed. The estimated loss on the each of the width and the length will be up to 20cm (9"); this is readily known as the finished size. The reason the sheets are advertised with the 'cut size' is because each finished product may vary slightely in dimensions.


For more heavy duty jobs it is recommended that you use a sheet 200gsm or higher. The extra strength and durability in a tarp of that weight will be excellent for roofs, covering heavy machinery, placing over frames and other uses which call for a tougher sheet; reinforced corners are also a useful addition. Lower grade (economy) tarpaulins are recommended for jobs where you do not need added strength, these include use as groundsheets and temporary covers.


When using a cover outside there are a number of rules you must follow to make sure that it does not prematurely deteriorate. The first is to make sure that there is an adequate water run-off, otherwise rainwater will pool and potentially cause damage. The second is to make sure that it is supported correctly and it is not strung up solely by the eyelets, this will, over time, damage them and reduce its effectiveness. Where possible, secure with bungee rather than rope; bungee's elasticity takes pressure away from eyelets in harsh wind and foul weather. Eyelet kits are available to purchase in order to add extra fixing points along the hemming, if so required, to distribute the stress on the tarp more evenly.

Canvas made tarpaulins are usually preffered for their aesthetics; they look classic and are an extremely durable natural product. It is important to note that they are water resistant and not necessarily guaranteed waterproof. The reason for this is that they are often made up of multiple pieces of fabric that are sewn together; the seams the sheet has, as a result of this, may let water seep through. If it has been pre-waxed then it will need to be re-waxed at various points of its life, depending on its use (instructions are usually provided).


If a rip or hole appears then do not panic, repairs are easily carried out using the correct materials. Specialist adhesive tape for PVC and polyethylene sheets are effective and quick to use. Clean the area that needs to be fixed and apply to both sides of the rip or tear (the surface of the tarpaulin must be dry). Once that tape has adhered then, if done properly, the repair will hold for a considerable amount of time. Fabric sheets can be repaired using patches of the same material, this can be sewn on over any damage.
