Uses Of Mesh Tarps
Not everyone knows the difference between a regular tarp and the mesh tarps. Canvas tarp varieties have their use and functions that are hard to beat, but if you want some air flow along with your protection from the elements you will need material that can breath.
This 40x40 tan mesh tarp itself is a handy tool for keeping out things such as wind and rain in a temporary situation. When you are building a tarp structure there is another factor that is often forgotten, and that is the need for air flow to cool us off. In Haiti, as well as in other places where the tarp house has become a necessity, the heat factor can be an issue if you do not let the air move around you.
Most tarp materials do not breath much at all. This allows them to hold in the hot stagnant air even while there is a breeze just outside. This can make for a unbearable place to try and live and sleep. When your home has been wrecked, and you have to live under a tarp for a while, things are already bad enough without you having to lose sleep in stifling conditions.
A mesh material can still block the sunlight, and act as a barrier to keep out prying eyes, even if it does allow for air flow. In many situations there is no better kind of tarp to use for an emergency. These kinds of tarp can also be rather handy on an hot afternoon camping or playing in the yard for a source of shade.
Keeping a mesh tarp on hand for all sorts of needs and emergencies is a good way to stay prepared for anything. Our tan mesh tarps are light in weight and easy to store and transport with you on any kind of journey. Do not get caught unprepared without your mesh tarps and your tarp supplies when things get nasty out there.
