Uses of a Roof Tarp

Roof Tarps are used in a time of need - The times of when you need to use a Roof Tarp is as a result of damage / poor weather cycles and or a mixture of both. When installing a Roof Tarp this is when you want it to not only meet your expectations but exceed them!

The number of times we have had people come to us after installing an inferior competitors Roof Tarp to find that it has torn and failed to protect the premise is ridiculous. Some people currently supplying “Roof Tarps” do so with inferior products, at ABC Tarps our Roof Tarps have features that provide a greater level of strength and provides the end user with a sense of confidence that it will perform. All the ABC Tarps are sold under the brand name Duratarp – a brand that is synonymous with strength and durability.

Features of the ABC Roof Tarp

The ABC Duratarp 5000 Roof Tarp has been used by the Building and Construction sector throughout Australia for well over two decades, in that time with have supplied a huge amount of Covers to the industry – including our Roof Tarps and of course our Builders Floor Sheets. The ABC Roof Tarp has some key characteristics that differentiate to what is available in the marketplace.

Our Roof Tarps are made from our Extra Heavy Duty 290gsm virgin Polyethylene (PE fabric) – the Roof Tarps are protected with an upper and lower protective scrim that provides Ultraviolet Light and Waterproof protection. The Roof Tarps and relatively light weight but are incredibly tough and durable. A key feature of the Duratarp 5000 product range are the DT5000 Tie Down the Tarp is provided with fixed positioned Tie Down points that are attached to the underside of the Tarp. These Tie Down points provide strong anchor points to enable the cover to be pulled down and fastened normally to the roof subframe. The number of Tie Down points are dependent on the size of the Tarp – please check out our range of Tie Down Tarps available -

Roped Reinforced Edges & Tie Down Points
Roof Tarp - secured tightly
Brass Reinforced eyelets

The positioning and structure of the Tarp with regards to the Roped Reinforced edges and the brass eyelets also provide strength and integrity to the Roof Tarp.

When installing the Roof Tarp, it is critical to ensure that the following are adhered to:

  • Be prepared – be conscious of the weather, in particular, the wind, work out the orientation of the tarp – where and how this is going to be done and be ready to Tie the tarp off – cut (and ideally attach) the rope to the tarp before putting it into place.
  • Before lifting the Roof Tarp into place ensure that all sharp edges – nails, tin or exposed sharp points and edges are either removed or protected. No matter what sort of Roof Tarp you have – Sharp Exposed Edges and tarps do not go together.
  • Check the weight of the Tarp before lifting and placing on the Roof this is more from a Health and Safety point of view
  • Work out the orientation/position of the Tarp to ensure its position is as per the Roof dimensions when unfurled. The tarp will roll out the short side first and then the long side, for instance, a 9 x 12 Meter cover will roll out the 9 meter first and then the 12-meter side.
  • When unfurling the tarp always to this so that you are heading “down wind” – Do Not attempt to unfurl into a prevailing wind – the tarp will form a sail and your crew will end up in a neighboring suburb.
  • As the tarp is positioned Tie the Tarp off to ensure it stays in place
  • Once the tarp is in position Tie off on each eyelet on the outer parameter and secure the tarp in place utilising the Tie Down points (if supplied)
  • Once the tarp is in place additional support can be applied – crossed over ropes to ensure the tarp will not dislodge and is secure.
