Use High-Quality Truck Tarpaulins to Safeguard Your Business Assets and Cargo

Grain bunker tarps and hay tarps are easy to spot all over Australia. These tarps are invaluable for farmers, especially during the harvest season. Not many farmers can afford to set up permanent storage structures for storing their agricultural produce. Leaving them out in the open could leave them exposed to the elements. Alternatively, leaving the crops uncovered could render them susceptible to attacks by rats and other kinds of pests. In either scenario, leaving your grain or hay uncovered could nullify months of hard labour.

But, tarps do not merely come into use in the agricultural sector. They are invaluable in industries and factories as well. If you have a large expanse of space and want to partition it, you might consider the merits of erecting a wall. However, a wall will be inconvenient if your requirements are temporary in nature. In this scenario, tarps can be very handy. You could use them to create factory dividers or warehouse divider walls. Thereafter, once you have accomplished your objectives, you could easily remove these tarps and put them away for subsequent use.

At Polytex Tarpaulins, we specialise in manufacturing big tarpaulins to suit a myriad of applications. Our products are ideal for use in the agricultural, industrial, mining and transportation sectors. The high quality and versatility of our tarpaulins makes them ideal for use as livestock shade structures in farms. At the same time, you could use them to meet your temporary warehousing needs as well.

People in the transportation sector, often use flatbed trucks and other vehicles for transporting goods and other cargo. Some individuals transport their property by trucks as well. In either instance, large and small materials can easily fly out of the back of the truck when the truck is in motion. This will naturally result in the loss of materials or cargo. The material will invariably end up littering the roads. Even worse, it could end up hitting vehicles and motorists that are directly behind the truck too.

Truck tarps are also far easier and more convenient to use compared to other types of truck cover systems. In most cases, the tarp can simply be pulled back in order to expose the truck’s cargo, and whatever items that need to be unloaded can be removed with ease. Finally, when the cargo has been unloaded, the truck tarp be installed back into the trucks’ cargo frame, or folded or rolled up as you would other tarps like bunker tarps, whichever is easier and more convenient for the user.

When compared to container trucks and cover systems, having truck tarps can be more effective in terms of efficiency and costs, since truck drivers will be able to make multiple delivers to different customers all in one load as opposed to having to set individual containers for each of their customers.

As can be gleaned from the paragraphs above, there are certainly a lot of benefits can truck owners and drivers can enjoy by using truck tarps. It helps to protect their loads from the elements, and at the same time helps to secure and keep them in place so they don’t fall off during the travel. That being said, truck tarps help to make transporting goods in flatbeds, dump trucks, and pickup trucks much easier and safer. And just like any other tarps manufactured for other purposes like hay tarps or shelter covers, truck tarps are available in a variety of styles and sizes suitable for any type of truck and kind of load being transported.

Choose Polytex for your Tarpaulin Needs

At Polytex, we offer tarps of various shapes and sizes. These are ideal for use as wall dividers or even, as grain bunker tarps. Some tarps can even double up to meet other requirements as well. For instance, you could use our products to cover your swimming pool too. But, if your swimming pool is not rectangular, you will likely require a custom-made tarp. With custom tarps, you can not only select the material of your choice. You can specify any additional requirements as well. For instance, you could opt for tarps that keep out bugs, leaves and other debris, but let the rainwater through. Or, you could opt for tarps that keep the rainwater out too.

If you want the best protection for your vehicle from tree saps, bird droppings and harsh weather conditions, form-fitting tarps will be your best bet. We have extensive experience in providing readymade and custom tarps designed for use as eco shelters and factory curtains.

Shade Structures: A Final Word

Live load, or those brief temporary loads that is caused by someone or something atop the cattle shade structures and thus putting weight and stress on it. In a solid roofed structure, these live loads are often caused by humans standing on top of the roof probably fixing something. In the case of shade fabric structures, these live loads may be caused by water that has pooled onto the centre of the shade fabric after a light rain or falling branches from nearby trees. In the case of water log, shade cloths are often design with mesh and holes to allow the water to disperse and thus avoid pooling. However, it sometimes happens that these holes become clogged and thereby prevents the water from falling off.

There may be other things that can cause undue stress on your cattle shade structures and the shade fabric that you used, but the three kinds of load mentioned above are the most common issues that owners of cattle shade structures usually encounter. However, as can be gleaned from the above paragraphs, these issues can be remedied using the proper materials and correct installation. This is why while building your cattle shade structures (or any other livestock shade structure like pig shelters and others), you may want to consult an engineer or a professional builder to help you out. Doing so may cause you to spend more money than what you originally intended to spend, but the investment will definitely be worth it.

Australian Hay Tarps!

Farmers in Australia have usually relied on hay barns for keeping their hay safe. But, not all farmers have ample space on their fields for constructing these permanent structures. Others simply don’t have the budget that the construction and maintenance of these structures typically involves. The use of hay tarps helps in circumventing the issue.

The hay tarps that Polytex produces are not the same as the plastic hay tarps that are commonly sold across the country. Those tarps offer good protection while minimising field transportation. As such, farmers can store their bales of hay in their fields, without having to build permanent structures. These tarps are cheap and will keep water off the bales of hay. In addition, you could even use those tarps in your cattle shade structures too. But, as the bales of hay dry, these tarps could end up trapping significant levels of moisture. Moreover, they usually do not offer any protection from exposure to the ultraviolet rays of the sun.

In contrast, the hay or bunker tarps that Polytex supplies are the best in the industry. We make our tarps with a breathable material that lets moisture out of the bale. In addition, this material also prevents the precipitation from penetrating it. This superior material ensures that:

 The hay remains secure even in the heaviest of rains
 The hay remains secure because the tarp can resist wind lifting
 The passage of air and vapour prevents the occurrence of moulds
 The tarp permits maximum drying of damp straw even after the heaviest downpours
 The tarp is tear-resistant and,
 The tarp can withstand ultraviolet lights just as our pig shelters and poultry curtains do, thereby keeping your produce safe

Tarps make excellent cattle shade structure!

Over the years, Polytex has become a name to reckon with in the domain of manufacturing high-quality tarpaulins. Businesses engaged in agriculture, farming, mining and other industries use our tarps for meeting a diverse range of needs. Our tarps make excellent cattle shade structures for keeping your livestock safe. At the same time, they are useful for storing your agricultural produce too. Our hay and grain bunker tarps are among our best-selling products.

Using tarps for partitioning sections in your factory can be a perfect solution to your spacing woes. You can use these tarps to make optimal use of your existing space. In the space created, you can have workers carry out specific activities. For instance, you could divide your factory for separating various work areas such as:

  • Welding areas
  • Quarantine areas
  • Wash-down bays and,
  • Painting or sand-blasting areas

Our fire-retardant and weatherproof industrial and bunker tarps are equally good for suppressing excessive levels of noise too. In addition, you could use these for suppressing fumes and dust as well.

Alternatively, you could use our industrial and hay tarps for storing different kinds of products. The best part about using tarps for segregating areas in your facility is that tarps are exceedingly cheap, as opposed to other permanent installations. In addition, installing and removing tarps is easy as well. Many clients prefer using our tarps because they prevent hot air or cold air from flowing through their facilities. This very feature highlights why farmers use our tarps in their livestock shade structures.

Our high-quality tarps !

Our high-quality tarps are exceedingly versatile and durable. As such, they will meet all the requirements of people engaged in mining, agriculture and industrial work. Moreover, they are a boon to farmers when it comes to keeping the livestock comfortable. In addition to tarps, we manufacture blinds, tarpaulin covers and liners designed especially for the poultry and piggery industries as well. As such, whether you require tarps for use as livestock shade structures or as hay tarps, we have products that will suit you admirably.

Grain bunker tarps are cost effective ways for storing your grain on-site very quickly. Oftentimes, farmers think of constructing permanent shelters for storing their crops. However, these permanent shelters will involve spending a considerable amount of money. In addition, they do not offer as much flexibility as poly tarps typically do.

Using tarpaulins for securing your agricultural produce helps farmers overcome any delays in harvesting. In many cases, using tarps helps in eliminating backlogs. In addition, grain farmers can use tarps for holding on to their produce if the prices are low, until the situation becomes more favourable
