Q1、Can you manufacture made to measure covers?
No. however if your requirement is on a large scale we can order particular sizes from our suppliers in the far east. we work on a minimum 4 month lead time, and minimum quantities will apply; please contact us for details. for immediate requirements we can supply you with uk companies who specialise in bespoke covers; details will be passed on upon request.
Q2、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.
Q3、Do you offer a guarantee to the lifespan of your tarpaulins?
No. 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. to maximise the lifespan of your tarpaulin we recommend to securely fasten your cover, and ensure that the sheet is not able to flap about.
Tarpaflex cannot be held responsible for damage caused by wear and tear, or degradation through uv after a prolonged period of use, please see our tarps that do have a uv warranty. please also bear in mind that eyelets can 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.
Q4、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 270gsm and olive green pvc 560gsm 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.
Knitted eyeholes on the debris netting are approximately 20mm wide when stretched. the outline eyeholes on scaffold sheeting are approx 15mm in diameter.
Additional eyelets in both 12mm and 20mm diameters are available for purchase from our accessories section.
Q5、Am i able to collect tarps directly from your warehouse to save shipping costs?

Q8、Do tarpaflex tarpaulins stand up to windy conditions? what is the best way to secure a tarpaulin?
Yes. 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 always recommend using bungee cords wherever possible; these are available for purchase in the ‘accessories’ section. it is also recommended to tie down the tarp with rope, by fastening rope around the item to be covered. 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.
