Industrial Tarps

Beehive Vinyl Products manufacture heavy duty industrial tarps for any use, purpose and to any size.  

Utilising a wide variety of materials with differing weights, strengths, & UV resistance we can custom fabricate tarpaulins up to very large sizes for transportation, agriculture, building/construction, mining, military and many other industries.

We also offer a repair service in our Townsville factory.

Any area that needs protection from the elements, or needs to be contained can be covered by a tarp - from the smallest to the largest jobs. Whether you are after a short or long-term cover solution,  we can assist you.

We offer a wide range of fabrics with varying UV resistance and a choice of seaming techniques to ensure the best possible outcome for your requirements. Seams in most material can be fully welded (except for canvas)  and the hems can be reinforced to suit your individual requirements.

Welding of materials is carried out by thermal welding using hot wedge welders, hot air welders & high frequency welding . Hot wedge & hot air welding both provide watertight seams along with added strength compared to sewing. Hot air welders enable us to weld curved shapes and other difficult areas where hot wedge welding is restricted. High frequency welding provides an excellent bond with PVC based material only however is a slow process in comparison to hot wedge or hot air welding.

The traditional method of sewing industrial textiles is still used and with developments in thread technology over the years (such as with PTFE thread - teflon), products have been able to achieve a better life expectancy without the need for restitching. New threads can have have excellent UV resistance, chemical resistance & do not rot easily like old cotton threads.

Tarps can be manufacture to varying designs utilising additions such different eyelets (eg: stainless steel / brass), pockets for timber battening or  aluminium/steel rod / chain ballast, varying levels of reinforcing, welded/sewn in rope edges, & different ropes & tie down options.
