Meaning of Demolition Tarps?
Demolition tarps, also called snow tarps, are large, 18 oz - 26 oz vinyl sheets. They’ve got either four or eight lifting points--four heavy-duty nylon webbing loops at the corners, or eight reinforced O-rings at the corners and the middle of the edges of the tarp.
Demolition tarps are designed to collect and haul away heavy debris like concrete, metal scraps, roofing beams, or other extraneous construction site materials.
When and Where to Use Demolition Tarps?
Demolition tarps, also sometimes called construction tarps, are used at construction and demolition tarps. That can be a large scale municipal construction project, like tearing out and re-paving a road, or it can be a DIY home renovation project.
Demolition tarps are also sometimes called snow tarps because they can be used to protect a site exposed to the elements from snow, collecting snow to haul away so the construction can begin on a dry site.
Benefits of Demolition Tarps Over Other Types of Tarps?
1. Water Resistance
Demolition tarps are extremely heavy, strong, tear-resistant and waterproof. For example, the heaviest-duty lumber tarp is made of 18oz vinyl, while the most durable construction tarps are 26oz Vinyl.
2. Higher Weight Capacity
Demolition tarps have a much higher weight capacity (Working Load Limit) than other types of tarps because they’re made to collect, bundle, and haul debris, while other kinds of tarps are only meant to cover loads or equipment.
3. Easy to Use
Tarps like lumber tarps and parachute tarps are not made to lift cargo, while demolition tarps essentially act like a bag that folds around and lifts the debris you want to move.
Think of construction tarps as extremely strong, durable versions of the tarps you use to haul raked leaves to the front of your yard for pickup.
What are the Demolition Tarp Options?
- Demolition tarps come in four sizes: 8’ x 8’, 12’ x 12’, 12’ x 20’, and 20’ x 20’.
- There are also two lifting-point options: four nylon webbing loops or eight reinforced O-rings. The O-ring design lets you close the tarp “bundle” around your debris more precisely, so there’s less risk anything will spill out the top, which is useful if your debris includes a lot of dust or wood shavings.
- The loops are easier to manipulate, and they are easier to connect to a crane that uses hook end-fittings. Both the loops and the O-rings are equally strong and resilient.
- All demolition tarps are made from heavy-duty, waterproof, tear-resistant vinyl.
Equipment / Accessories Are Required To Use These Demolition Tarps
Construction tarps and snow tarps are typically lifted with a crane or forklift. If the debris or snow can’t be disposed of in an onsite dumpster, it’s good to be able to load the debris onto a trailer or into a dump truck.
