HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT TARP FOR THE MATERIALS YOU’RE TRANSPORTING

News - image_intro
Choosing a tarp that’s adapted to the materials being transported will help you be more efficient, keep your teams safe and even save some money. Since different types of merchandise have different properties, using the right tarp makes a world of difference.

You don’t have to choose between the ease of use and merchandise integrity

 

Not all materials need to be transported in the same conditions. There’s a big difference between transporting gravel and asphalt. Asphalt must be kept at a high temperature to make it easier to unload and maintain its quality. 

We’ve heard that in Western Canada, mosquito netting is sometimes used instead of a tarp because it’s lighter and easier to handle. However, that significantly impacts the product’s quality. 

TechnoFlex offers tarps that keep asphalt at the right temperature, to preserve its integrity, while also being easy to handle.

  

Your employees’ health and safety

 

Vinyl tarps are popular with transporters because they’re sturdy and can be used with various materials.

However, their weight may cause health and safety issues, so in some cases, you’ll want to make sure you’re using the appropriate size. For example, using a 10 oz tarp instead of an 18 oz one will help reduce risks for your employees and provide appropriate protection for your materials. 

 

TechnoFlex has the expertise required to help you choose the best type of tarp for the materials you transport. Don't hesitate to contact us for advice, because using the right tarp will help you preserve the quality of your deliveries while protecting your employees.
