Solid Materials

18 oz This is our most popular material for general outdoor waterproof tarping requirements. For indoor applications, consider the Fire Retardant (FR rated) version.
14 oz Similar to our 18 oz material but thinner and lighter for applications where it is important to minimize weight.
14 oz FR Curtain This Fire Retardant material is used for indoor room dividers or factory curtains. Not suitable for outdoor use.
22 oz Over 20% heavier and thicker than our standard 18 oz material. Often used for Side Roller Grain Trucks due to excess wear caused by the roller mechanism.
40 oz Twice and heavy and thick as our standard 18 oz material. Can be used for utility trailers but will be heavy to manage if the size is large. Be sure to check the overall tarp weight to make sure you can easily lift it.
50 oz Heavier grade, two-ply material for applications that require a thicker heavier tarp. Comes in grey on one side, white on the other. When ordering this material, take note of the estimated weight of the full tarp to make sure that the finished tarp will not be too heavy to handle for your application. Weight may vary slightly. Good for small tarps that need to weigh a lot. For example, you could generally use this to cover fire wood without having to tie it down.
Welding Curtain Primarily used for protecting welding stations
Clear/Transparent Clear PVC vinyl tarp used for adding windows to solid tarps or when it is necessary to see through the covering. Ideal for see through covers, green houses or clear deck enclosures. This has a thickness of 20 Mil and a weight of 17.5 oz and is FR rated so it is suitable for industrial curtains.
Reinforced Clear/Transparent Our reinforced clear has greater tear strength than the clear vinyl described above. It contains an embedded white scrim to make it stronger while still allowing good transparency. This is suitable for enclosing wash bays or other curtain applications. If is FR rated.
Insulated Used when the tarp functions as a thermal barrier. Insulated tarps consist of 18 oz vinyl on either side of a closed cell foam layer.

Mesh Materials

60% Block Premium product that is primarily used for roll tarps and truck/trailer covers, also for building wraps and container covers.
70% Block Economy grade mesh with some stretchability, primarily used for container covers. Tends to curl rather than laying flat.
90% Block Premium mesh often used for shade and privacy
90% Block Super Heavy Duty This is our highest quality mesh material. Similar to trampoline material. It is urethane coated which makes it stiffer than our other mesh. Withstands heat of up to 350F so it can be used to cover asphalt trucks. Can also be used as awnings.


Canvas Used when a breathable water resistant material is required
