    Heavy Duty Tarps

    If we at haven't learned anything else from our many years in the tarp business, we've learned that heavy duty situations call for heavy duty tarps. It may sound simple, but just wait until you start a project only to figure out midway through that you don't have enough tarp for the job. You'd be surprised how quickly most people change their minds about heavy duty tarps when the bottom rips out of their lightweight tarp.

    I have a boat dock with A frame that uses fence post aluminum poles. I would like to replace the tarp with something that can be hooked to the aluminum poles with the small bungee tarp cords. What do you recommend?

    If you wish to use bungees, we recommend a tarp with grommets. You will find this feature on most of the tarps we carry under the features section of each item if it is available.

    I've been using a UV resistant poly tarp to cover my hay bales, which are always exposed to the sun and rain. It's only 5 months old, but already begun to wear under the weather. Which of your tarps would be best for the job?
    By Dawn H. on April 8, 2013

    Any of our heavy duty tarps would work but we would recommend one of the sun shield tarps.

    I need three 8' x 100' UV resistant heavy duty tarps. To line my irrigation ditch. Can you make these for me?
    By Justin R. on April 9, 2014

    As we are only an online dealer and not a manufacturer, we are unable to make any custom tarps at this time.

    Is there a tarp made which will last longer than a few week/months in the Florida sun?
    Needed for an emergency roof cover, until permanent repair can be afforded.
    I am 67, handicapped, with no help, so a tarp is all I can handle right now.
    And, no, the off the shelf lightweight, even the "heavy duty UV resistant" type will not hold up.

    The highest quality tarp that we carry is Polytuf Super SunShield line, such as the Polytuf Super SunShield UVI Tarp - 16 Foot x 20 Foot. While they have a higher initial cost, their fabric weight is nearly 4 times higher than standard tarps and they are extremely UV resistant. Because of your location, this would be the best product to use.

    What is the mil thickness? I would like to compare with the ones I can touch and feel in the stores.
    By Chris C. - eCanopy Product Specialist on September 9, 2015

    Each of the heavy duty tarps we carry offer a 12 mil thickness at a 12 x 14 mesh count.
