Tarpaulin

Tarpaulin

Tarpaulin sheets are large sheets which are often used for protecting external equipment from the elements. Tarpaulin, sometimes known as tarp, is a protective and waterproof sheet with many uses, such as protecting outdoor furniture, BBQs, temporarily covering some construction work, use as a shelter in emergency situations and much more. Tarpaulin products are often rated and graded using GSM which stands for grams per square meter. This sets out to measures the thickness and weight of your tarp, the higher the number the more protective, heavy and thicker the tarpaulin will be. So, if you’re looking for a tarpaulin that is going to offer a lot of protection you’ll want one with a higher GSM figure.
Tarps also often feature holes or rings on the outer edges which allow them to be tied down to stop them from blowing away.
