Our canvas tarpaulins are imported from India. Fabricated from a natural fabric, these hardy tarps are breathable; however please bear in mind that a minimal amount of shrinkage can occur where canvas tarpaulins are subject to varying temperatures.
Our robust canvas tarps are wax-proofed to make them water-resistant, if a waterproof tarp is required please see our other listings for PVC and polyethylene tarpaulins. They will require re-treating after prolonged exposure to water, in order to maintain their resistant properties. These tarpaulins are manufactured to imperial sizes, we offer metric measurements as an approximate only.
Water resistant heavy weight canvas. Brass eyelets at 2ft intervals in strengthening tabs. Seams and hems single stitched.
Rotproofed & wax processed to make them water-resistant. We recommend using shock cord / bungees for fixing our tarps. For advice and further info, please see our FAQ's. Please Note: Order by 2pm Monday to Friday (excluding Bank Holidays) for same day dispatch.

Please see below for responses to some of our most frequently asked questions and queries. Can you manufacture made to measure covers? However if your requirement is on a large scale we can order particular sizes from our suppliers in the Far East. For immediate requirements we can supply you with UK companies who specialise in bespoke covers; details will be passed on upon request.Why is there a seam on my cover? Most tarps need a seam as it is impossible to fabricate a tarpaulin without heat sealing several pieces of polyethylene together. A seam may not be necessary on some of the smaller sizes as they can be fabricated from one piece of material.
This also applies to dust sheets where a seam is stitched. Do you offer a guarantee to the lifespan of your tarpaulins?As all of our tarpaulins are subject to varying weather conditions and put to so many different uses we cannot guarantee the length of time they will last. Generally speaking a heavier grade tarpaulin is more likely to last longer than an economy grade tarp, which we recommend for temporary use only. To maximize the lifespan of your tarpaulin we recommend to securely fasten your cover. Please bear in mind that eyelets can also come under a lot of pressure, and so any stress points should be reinforced.
While the material a tarp is made from may be heavy duty, no such guarantee is given to the eyelets. Fixing additional eyelets can help spread the load. Please also avoid any sharp edges and constant friction which can reduce the lifespan of your cover. What size are the eyelets? Are they on all four sides of the tarpaulin?
The standard inside diameter on the majority of our tarpaulin eyelets is approximately 12mm. However, eyelets on the Black/Silver Super Tarpaflex Plus and Olive Green PVC Tarpaulins are currently 20mm.Eyelets are on all 4 corners and spaced all around the hemmed edges. On a tarpaulin with riveted corner patches, you can expect the inside diameter to be approx 8mm. The outline eyeholes on scaffold sheeting are approx 15mm in diameter. How long until I receive my order? How can I cancel my order? By simply phoning 01409 221192 and speaking to one of our friendly sales representatives. Do Tarpaflex Tarpaulins stand up to windy conditions? What is the best way to secure a tarpaulin? However it is essential that the tarp is tied down properly; if it is not it may tear and the eyelets may fall out. Tarpaflex therefore cannot be held responsible for weather related damage to tarpaulins. We also recommend lashing rope over the top of the tarp and item being covered, to ensure that it cannot flap around. Furthermore, eyelets are provided as an aid to securing the tarp - they are not designed to have pressure applied to them by ratchet straps or any other misuse. We strongly recommend the use of extra eyelets. Therefore if your tarp has a defect due to a manufacturing fault, we will replace the item free of charge. We will always request a digital photograph of the fault. The Tarpaflex tarpaulin I received is shorter by 14cms than the size stated - please explain cut size.
Cut size is the industry's standard way to manufacture tarps. This material, being 4m x 5m, is then made into a tarpaulin. However, by making and bevelling over the hems and adding eyelets this reduces the final size of the tarp by up to 30cms, for example giving a finished size of 3m 70cms x 4m 70cms.
Tarpaflex sells tarpaulins by weight. Poly tarps, being made from a plastic raw material, are an oil based commodity - therefore you should focus on the weight in GSM (Grams per Sq Metre) when purchasing any tarpaulin.
