General information

Reinforced flexible tarpaulins for temporary shelter or personal protection.

-      For individual shelter purpose, it is recommended to use the 4m x 6m tarpaulins.

-      For community shelter purpose, it is recommended to use the 4m x 60m rolls.

-      If ready-made tarpaulins are not available they can be cut out of the rolls (10 per roll).

The sheet has 6 reinforcing bands to provide reinforced attachment points. The side bands are provided with pre-punched holes. Attachment systems, such as ropes, nails, etc, should take advantage of the reinforcing bands and the pre-punched holes.

Expected life span of 2 years minimum in the strongest tropical condition.

This product was developed in an inter-organisation research project, and its specifications are more adapted to our use compared to the usual plastic sheets available on the market (in terms of durability, waterproof, sheltering capacities, usage versatility, re-use and recycling, etc). It is recommended not to use other types of plastic sheets.

The life cycle of the material is long lasting through recycling and can be used as second hand raw materials for other products.  Many usages have been observed, such as bags for recycled waste collection, car tarpaulins, raincoats, personal bags, etc.

The rolls are packed individually and loaded with special pallet based cradle. The tarpaulins are packed in bales of 5 units, without individual packaging.

Plastic tarpaulins and sheeting are subject to International Purchase Frame Agreements with validated manufacturers. Refer to your HQ before purchasing.
