St. Joseph, MI,USA, 2022-Sep-13 — /EPR CONSTRUCTION NEWS/ — Tarps Now® is pleased to announce the release of a new Guide to Industrial Tarp Applications that provides consumers a tutorial on the use of Industrial Tarp applications to solve a wide range of protective solutions. The guide begins with a discussion focused on the selection of durable fabrics which should be considered first, based upon the type of problem that needs to be solved. Examples include vinyl, clear vinyl, canvas, polyethylene and mesh which are often used in applications like truck tarps, industrial covers, equipment covers, construction tarps, welding blankets, and welding covers. Many of these heavy duty tarps are waterproof providing protection from the elements, moisture, and other fluids. Additional important options include fire retardant, high temperature, and anti-static protection.
Heavy-duty industrial grade construction tarps provide a safe environment at job sites, plants, warehouses, in the field, and other work areas. They help protect people, equipment, and structures in these locations and take a wide range of forms. Types of Industrial Tarps frequently are used for temporary building enclosures, such as containment tarps, scaffold sheeting and scaffold tarps. Other applications include concrete curing blankets, safety debris netting, construction scaffold debris netting, orange barrier fencing, safety snow fencing, lifting tarps, construction debris tarps, snow tarps, and basic stock sized tarp for smaller protective coverings.
Other guidance focuses on the care and maintenance of industrial tarp coverings, as the collection and build-up of dirt and grime can limit the effectiveness of the covers. To clean these tarps, it is recommended to use mild dish soap and warm water, as opposed to detergents, certain hash cleaners along with scrubbing too hard can damage the covers as well as removing the protection of special features.
