What is a tarp on a fence?

Tarpaulin is an opaque panel made of strong HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) material which is UV resistant and weather-resistant.

Tarpaulin is often used as a privacy screen for construction fences as well as protecting sites from poor weather.


What’s the difference between a tarp and a tarpaulin?

Tarp and tarpaulin are exactly the same thing. Since 1906, tarp has been a common shorthand amongst the construction industry and wider public.


Does thickness of fence tarp matter?

When looking for temporary fencing tarps, you should look for a thickness that will withstand wind, rain, snow and direct sunlight. However, if your Heras fence tarp is too thick, it will be difficult to move around and add more pressure on your eyelets.

150gsm is an ideal fence tarp weight for great strength and durability whilst being relatively lightweight to move and install.


Should I choose fire retardant fence tarpaulin?

You should choose fire retardant fence tarpaulin if fire is a risk at your event or site and needs to be managed. Fire retardant fence tarpaulins will burn at a much slower rate and instantly extinguish any melting droplets. Available from £12.40, fire rated Heras fence tarp is worth the slightly extra cost for peace of mind.

How do you secure a tarp to a fence?

Fitting your Heras fencing tarp is simple. Thread tie wraps through the fitted eyelets and around your fence to secure in place. Secure your top corner eyelet first and then fit each eyelet along the length of your Heras fence tarpaulin. Loosely fasten your tie wraps at first until you’re happy with how your Heras fence tarp is positioned.


How long will a fence tarp last outside?

As a general guide, Heras fencing tarps can be used continuously for up to five years. However, the lifespan of your fence tarps is dependent on:

1. Weather conditions

If your Heras fence tarpaulin is exposed to strong winds, harsh temperatures or intense sunshine, they are likely to become worn much quicker.

2. How you care for your fence tarpaulin

Ensure your Heras fence tarps are properly installed and regularly check for any damage. Keep fence tarpaulin clear of dirt and debris to reduce wear and tear and keep them looking fresh.


Is Heras fence tarpaulin air permeable?


Heras fencing tarpaulin is a solid sheet of material which means it isn’t air permeable. If your site is likely to be subject to high winds, consider Heras debris netting or Heras fence covers.
