Allplas Top Tarpaulin Thicknesses

Like if this guide is helpful
There are many types of tarpaulin on the market. At times it can become quite confusing to know which one is best for you. Here at allplas we only use top quality 610 gsm polyester reinforced PVC for what we  manufacture, or products that sourced from Europe,  like the 220 gsm super tarpaulin and the 140 gsm extra heavy duty tarpaulin.

All of our products are 100% waterproof and uv stabilised so you will get a long lasting product that is top quality. So there is no need to waste time and money buying the cheap alternatives on the market that come from the far east.
The weakest point on any tarpaulin will be the eyelets, we advise to use either bungee or to batten it down where you can. The main idea is to stop the wind getting underneath the sheets, Bungee will take the strain away from the rest of the sheet and help with the longevity of the tarp.

We can also make them with Pole hems, this way you can thread a wooden or metal pole through the hem and cut out a "U" shape wherever you want to fix an anchor.

Super Tarpaulin 250gsm  is our heavy range tarpaulin. It is just under half the weight of the 610gsm but is still really strong. The super tarpaulin comes laminated on both sides to give that extra strength, As with all our covers this product is 100% waterproof and UV stabilised.
We bring this product over from holland so it is a tougher material than the far eastern alternatives.  Available in standard sizes 4m x 6m, 6m x 8m, 8m x 10m, 10m x 12m, 10m x 15m, 10m x 20m and 15m x 20m. As an example weight the 10m x 20m weighs 54kg so it really is a monster of a tarpaulin, Available in olive green or natural white as seen in the picture.
We have sold these over the years for many applications such as boat covers, roof covers, cricket covers and much more. The 250gsm is still really strong and a cheaper alternative to the 610gsm truck tarpaulin, However if you want the ultimate in strength the 610gsm really is what you should go for.
