What is the best material for long term sun resistance when it comes to mesh tarps?
By Will M. - eCanopy Product Specialist on June 26, 2017
Answer:Since mesh tarps will always be comprised of a breathable polypropylene material to purposefully allow some light to come through to prevent mold, choosing a mesh shade tarp may not be the best option if the goal is 100% UV protection. Most of the heavy duty and super heavy duty tarps will be thicker denier polyethylene, so this would be the better option to choose, depending on thickness.

I am researching mesh tarps in order to purchase one that will last quite a while. I have noticed the mesh tarps at car dealerships and I suspect that these are heavy duty, weather resistant and especially tough against the Texas sun. I want one that will not fall apart after one year since I want this tarp to cover and shade some of my pool area. What do you recommend?
By Will M. - eCanopy Product Specialist on June 21, 2016
Answer:The mesh tarps in question would indeed be ideal when used as a pool covering as they are both breathable and heavy duty.
