Flame Retardent

Our flame retardant tarpaulins are supplied with a Certificate of Conformity with British, EEC and local fire regulations covered for insurance requirements.

OUR CERTIFICATES ARE GENUINE BRITISH STANDARD AND CAN BE VERIFIED BY CERTIFICATE NUMBER.

Beware! Overseas flame retardant stamps/signs/stickers are not valid in Britain.Do not be fooled by cheaper prices which may invalidate your insurance. Please check your liability insurance and checkwith your local Fire Chief (a simple phone call) or do a simple test; obtain their sample and put a match to it before purchasing non-British standardflameproof tarpaulins.

Our flame retardant tarpaulins are made-up by the almagamation of pvc mixture and fireproof mixture which is then impregnated into the nylon based cloth as it is pressed through the hot rollers producing our flame retardant pvc which is in accordance with local fire regulations set down by Councils and Fire Brigades. Therefore, our flame retardant pvc is not to be mistaken with laminate pvc which is layered on top of the nylon base cloth (or inferior cloth) which is made to look like impregnated material but peels away from the base cloth over a short period of time and is not covered by British Standards.

We can make any size you require. We offer a bespoke service.

We stock varieties of flame retardant tarpaulins.a Please ring for further information and assistance and prices.

HEAVY WEIGHT TARPAULINS

WE MAKE ANY SIZE!

We aim to beat any genuine UK price on 18oz (630 gram) heavy duty PVC providing it is from our current stock, colour and standard make-up.

Our complete range of heavy duty tarpaulins is quite vast, ranging from lightweight PVCs to our heavyweight 18oz (610 gram) cotton British canvas, but for the majority of uses our 12oz PVC coated nylon is usually sufficient.

Our most popular materials, the 12oz are for general purpose covers, the 18oz is suitable for lorry covers, shipping and all heavy day to day usage.

Most sheets are made from PVC because of its low maintenance. Canvas can rot if rolled up wet and is never fully waterproof due to the stitched seams, and over a period of time will lose its wax proofing reducing its water repelling qualities.

All our heavy duty sheets are available in any size custom created for each individual customer. The sizes here are JUST A GUIDE, butmake sure you get the size correct otherwise you could be paying for extra sheeting you don't need.

ALL OUR STANDARD HEAVY DUTY TARPAULINS COME COMPLETE AND READY FOR USE WITH

Stitched hem, brass spur toothed eyelets, ropes (6mm approximately 2m long), all these are around the perimeter, the eyes and ropes at distances of between 3-5 feet (1-1.5m) depending on the size.

EXTRAS AVAILABLE ARE:

Extra eyelets, extra ropes, extra thick ropes (10mm), pockets for poles, draw cords etc, chaffing bands, boxed corners for a neater fit.

Colours available are blue red green white black and yellow

DONT FORGET WE MAKE ANY SIZE. JUST MEASURE THE LENGTH AND BREADTH YOU REQURE AND PHONE US...WE WILL DO THE REST!

POND LINERS BEST BRITISH 630 GRAM PVC

WE MAKE ANY SIZE

Early pond liners were made of canvas. Unfortunately, even with treated wax seams they gradually leaked requiring the pond to be topped-up or wait for a rainfall. A mackintosh material was then used but this was too thin and tore.

PVC was invented mainly for TIR Lorries and a lighter 630 gram for flat back artic Lorries. Everyone started to use the 630 gram for pool liners.

Another material was then marketed which looked like the 630 gram but was far inferior. It was unsupported (unlike British PVC) and if pulled it would come apart because there was no inner weave only the coating.

Hence the only material for a good strong pool liner is 630 gram PVC.

Ratchet Systems
