Heavy Duty Tarps

Our stock of heavy duty tarps is very extensive. We have the largest supply of heavy duty tarps in different colors and sizes in North America. People who need true heavy duty tarps cannot take a chance on a weak mesh count or light poly coating.

Heavy duty jobs need heavy duty solutions. There are so many types of industrial tarps so it's important to know what makes a true heavy duty tarpaulin heavy duty. To judge if a tarp is truly heavy duty, there are several factors to consider. The first thing you want to have is a high mesh count with a heavy duty thread shaft built into the tarp. True heavy duty poly tarps have a thick poly coating. The heavy duty canvas has a heavier weight. Another factor to consider is the denier. The denier is the measurement of fiber or thread thickness. A heavy duty tarp is also dense. If you are looking for heavy duty tarps that can handle sun exposure, make sure the tarp is UV treated.

Deciding on the right heavy duty tarps depends on the application. Make sure you look through all the categories of commercial tarps before you buy, so you know you are getting the right heavy duty tarps for your needs.

Qualities of Heavy Duty Tarps

Heavy duty tarps are designed to provide all-year protection. They can handle long-term applications. They will not deteriorate easily even when used outdoors for an extended period of time. All our heavy-duty tarps, except for the canvas tarps are waterproof. The heavy duty canvas tarp can only provide water protection until it reaches its saturation point.

Our heavy duty tarps are also resistant to tearing and abrasions. So even when used with aggregates or other items with rough surfaces and sharp and pointy edges, the covers will not get damaged easily.

All our tarps have rust-resistant grommets. Even when exposed to rain, these rings will not stain the tarp. Use them with ropes or cords. These tie-downs are available here at Tarps Plus. See our Tarps Accessories section.
