The 411 on Tarps - Questions and answers about Tarps that we custom manufacture
by www.ahh.biz - Specialized Textile Outfitters


Question_Text:

I am looking for an outdoor, tinted/colored, transparent tarp, that is strong enough to withstand New England winters with wind, ice and snow. It is to wrap around my porch. Do you have such a product? It looks like you might have the "fabric," but without grommets. Do you know where I might be able to buy something like this that has grommets and is reinforced for outdoor use?


Answer:

We can custom manufacture reinforced clear vinyl tarps to your specifications, we can also manufacture tarps from nearly any of the fabric, vinyl and mesh that we sell on our website.

We have the clear vinyl in two weights that would be suitable for outdoor use: 20 gauge and 40, we also have a 20 gauge tinted vinyl.

20 gauge clear vinyl

40 gauge clear vinyl

Tinted 20 gauge clear vinyl

These clear vinyl materials are rated for constant outdoor use in temperatures down to -30℉

We offer size 2 and size 4 grommets on our tarps, but we usually end up putting size 4 in the corners of the tarp because the larger size 4 grommet has a long enough flange length to properly set in a the corner of the tarp where the material is both reinforced and doubled up, due to the hems on both the vertical and horizontal sides of the tarp coming together in the corners.


Question_Text:

I am looking for a custom, natural color (white), UV protected?, 36" x 15'-6" (finished size) canvas tarp. Each of the 15'-6" sides is to have a pocket sewn in to accept 1/2" ID x 15'-6" metallic electrical conduit. This tarp will be used to cover a solar pool cover when it is rolled up on its reel. It will require two people to drape the tarp over the rolled solar cover. The weigh of the metallic conduit will keep the tarp in place and eliminate the need for snaps or Velcro, which wouldn't be accessible since the reel is located over the center of the pool. Best Regards,

Answer:

We can definitely make this tarp for you, to the specifications you stated. However, we require a simple diagram that has all of the measurements listed, including distances between (centers of) grommets, distances between straps, and other fixtures and hardware. Pictures of a tarp of the same type(s) may help us, but a simple, good diagram with all the critical measurements will often provide us with enough of information to both give you a price quote, and manufacture your tarp.
