Creating a controlled environment, using a ground sheet to eliminate soil contamination and a stockpile cover as a top layer of protection can help extend the shelf life of the material. This also keeps your inventory in good condition, while preventing production downtime.

Regardless of climatic conditions, it is vital to protect your stockpile. Here are a few best practices to follow:

  • Cover stockpile when not in use
  • Avoid dips and flat areas on top of your pile to prevent any water accumulation
  • Find a location away from high-traffic activity and where the pile remains uninterrupted
  • Use tarpaulin weights like concrete tyres, sandbags or rocks around the stockpile to hold down the covers
  • Provide access to conduct inspections and checks
  • Store materials away from drainage systems, drain inlets or stormwater drains
  • Use a cover that has the strength to withstand harsh weather

Stockpile Covers: Protect Inventory from Potential Damage and Environmental Factors in the Outdoors

For over a decade, Polytex has been supplying Stockpile Covers, Remediation Covers and Contaminated Soil Covers to many industries. These include mining, remediation businesses and others. These covers are commonly used as a protective covering for sand, fertilizer, ores, salt and other industrial-grade materials that are stored outdoors or in open areas. Some stockpiles may require ground sheets to prevent contamination with the soil.

Being in the tarp business since the 1990s, Polytex has years of experience in understanding what works for specific industries with regard to materials, user requirements, base products and locations.

Our stockpile covers are manufactured from PE, PP and PVC fabrics, ensuring they are tough and durable while remaining physically light enough to handle. We also heat weld our cover seams to ensure strong bonds and waterproof seams.

We offer a wide range of size options depending on your requirements. If you are also looking for a custom tarp in any size with options for hems and eyelets or a sleeve and pole for securing down, call us at 1300 059 003 or click ‘Get a Quote,’ and we’ll be in touch shortly.
