The Benefits And Disadvantages Of Using Tarpaulins

Here are the benefits and disadvantages of using tarpaulins:

  • Tarpaulins are lightweight, inexpensive way to protect loads or cover structures. The word tarpaulin originally referred only to waterproofed canvas (abbreviated tar), but it now is applied to other materials like polyethylene sheeting. Tarps can be narrow rolls of plastic sheeting, typically 2 meters (6.6 ft) wide used for covering stacks of harvested crops; heavy-duty woven polypropylene fabrics in large sheets designed for building temporary roofing; or brightly colored nylon fabrics printed with images and advertisements for sale at sporting events. Since the 1990s, a growing number of manufacturers have begun selling tarps made from flexible plastics such as vinyl which are much less prone to ripping and tearing. 
  • Tarps used to cover hay bales are typically referred to as bale tarps. Tarpaulins can either be sewn or heat-fused together. Sewn tarps provide the greatest strength and durability, but may require seam sealing along the stitching lines to ensure that no water can enter through any openings in these seams. Heat fusing generally involves applying a layer of polymer adhesive between two layers of fabric, followed by passing the assembly through a heat press where heated pressure-sensitive tape is applied over the adhesive for additional reinforcement at high temperatures to form what will become an integral single piece upon cooling.

Tarpaulins are a very important tool for managing to prevent and reducing the spread of diseases. They are cheap, easy to use and have low environmental impact.

However, tarpaulins are not without their problems. Tarpaulins are often noisy when it is windy or when people or animals brush against them in the dark. This can be very disturbing for nearby residents, particularly in urban settings where more and more refugees and internally displaced people (IDPs) live close together. The noise is a real barrier to using them to protect against Ebola. We need more research on this issue before we come up with an alternative method of preventing disease spread; we don’t want to make the situation worse by adding insomnia on top of everything else. 

Conclusion: 

Tarpaulins are a very important tool for managing to prevent and reducing the spread of diseases. They are cheap, easy to use and have low environmental impact. However, tarpaulins are not without their problems.
