There are many kinds of heavy duty tarps out there, which can be used to protect equipment in shipping, aircraft industries, construction sites, and many more industries and job sites. Tarps are generally made out of either mesh, vinyl, canvas, or polyethylene. So what kind of tarp will work best for you? That all depends on what you plan to use the tarp for.

Heavy duty mesh tarps are extremely durable and versatile to withstand any rips. When you need a tarp to cover any heavy duty equipment, you may want to go with a mesh tarp.

Vinyl tarps are 100% waterproof, and you can find them in a wide range of colors and sizes. Typically, vinyl tarps are used for agricultural, industrial, commercial, and military use.

Heavy duty canvas tarps typically have high moisture resistance against most liquid chemicals. Sometimes heavy duty canvas tarps are also flame retardant, so they work well when they’re around combustible materials. Canvas tarps typically come in a range of different colors and sizes as well.

Finally, heavy duty poly tarps are made from high density polyethylene. These are most commonly used for long-lasting purposes, especially to help resist UV rays and strong wind over time. Some heavy duty poly tarps are made with heat welded seams, making them especially useful for commercial and industrial purposes.
