There is so much more to a tarp than throwing it on top of something to cover it. Tarps Plus shares their expertise with their customers and are constantly looking for new ways to expand their extensive tarps catalog. 

Georgetown, Texas, July 19, 2021, Tarpaulins are used in many ways to protect persons and things from wind, rain, and sunlight. They are used during construction or after disasters to protect partially built or damaged structures, to prevent mess during painting and similar activities, and to contain and collect debris.

Not all Tarps are equal. This why some Tarps seem to be falling apart after being out in the weather for not a long period of time. This is because they actually ARE falling apart and becoming brittle and unsafe to use. Tarps are sometimes made using low quality materials, such as Resins for the Poly Tarps. UV Treatments are sometimes claimed but the Tarp may have never actually been treated.

Tarps Plus™ began in 1999 and experienced exponential growth from a small number of tarp offerings to selling tarps of all types in large and small quantities.

Here are some facts about two popular types of Tarps:

Mesh Tarps: Tarps Plus Mesh Tarps are manufactured with thick polyethylene thread shafts. These mesh screens are used in sports facilities across the country due to the quality that is built into them. This shading material provides windscreen protection that is second to none. The green mesh tarps are used in golf courses as mesh screens and have also become a staple at construction sites. They provide debris protection as well as sunshade for many types of activities. 

Mesh Tarps are heavy-duty covers so they can be used continuously for months. These mesh tarps do not block the sunlight, they block approximately 70% of sun rays. They are ideal for plants that do not need a lot of sunlight to grow. Their resistance to tearing makes them great for demanding applications.

Fire Retardant Tarps: Tarps Plus Certified Fire Retardant Tarps are licensed with the government’s CPAI-84 specifications. The Tarps Plus™ manufactured fire-retardant tarps come in poly and canvas. The California State Fire Marshal certifies these fire-retardant tarps. All of these  poly fire retardant tarps are cleared by the California State Fire Marshal’s Office, which is a nationwide standard.

Fire retardant tarps are often used for events or applications where the risk of fire is present. The tarps are treated with substances that lessen the flammability of items. While they are not necessarily fireproof, they can slow down or possibly stop the spread of fire.

Having a fire-retardant tarp as a cover can keep workers safe. Since fire retardant tarps can delay the spread of fire, the workers will have enough time to escape its dangers and have the chance to extinguish the flames.
