Protect Holiday Ornament and Gift Displays with Clear Vinyl Tarps

Each year, many Americans set up holiday ornament and gift displays in the hopes of selling their wares. Some of those displays are set up outside at Christmas tree farms or in front of stores. Others are placed indoors at holiday bazaars, flea markets and the like. If you plan on being one of the holiday vendors this year, we’d like to recommend investing in vinyl tarps.

In our experience, vinyl tarps are ideal for protecting holiday ornament and gift displays during transfer from one location to another. That’s because they resist abrasions, moisture, mildew, oil, UV rays and tears. There are even vinyl tarps on the market today that are classified as fire retardant. Thus, you could use them near holiday lights and other mild, heat generating decorations without fear.

Protecting holiday items during transfers is not the only benefit to investing in vinyl tarps. Select models may be used to save display items from harm during normal business hours too. Take our 18 ounce Clear PVC Vinyl Tarps for instance. Classified as 20 Mil fire retardant, each one features a large, clear viewing window and white hems. The hems are reinforced and made with polypropylene. They also come complete with well-spaced, brass grommets. Because the vinyl tarps are clear, you could easily use them to cover your holiday display table. Doing so would keep dust, spilled drinks, precipitation, dirt and other items from damaging your holiday wares. In addition, your customers would be able to see and appreciate the items with ease.

To learn more about using vinyl tarps to keep holiday sales items from harm, please contact us at (877) 811-3911. We offer a fine selection of vinyl tarps in an array of colors, weights and sizes. Furthermore, for your convenience, vinyl tarp orders may be placed online via our secure shopping cart as well.

Reasons to Buy Canopy Top Replacements Before the Snow Flies

Before the winter weather really kicks in, consider taking a look at your canopy’s top. If it looks a little worn, you may want to invest in a canopy top replacement now rather than later. Here’s why:

To begin with, purchasing a canopy top replacement is more economical and less labor intensive than buying an entirely new unit. Think about it. All you really need to do is use our measuring guide to determine which size canopy top replacement is required. Then, when the canopy top replacement arrives, it will simply be a matter of removing the old one and tying down the new one.

In addition to being economical and a cinch to install, canopy top replacements store easily. So you can feasibly stow a few in your garage and have them ready for any emergency situations. After all, winter weather in certain parts of the country can get pretty rough. Depending on how rough, you could end up with a monster size hail damage that requires instant canopy top replacement. In such situations, having a spare one already on hand would obviously be beneficial.
While we are on the topic of weather, be sure to select a canopy top replacement that is suitable for your location’s climate. Our canopy top replacements are made with rot, mildew, water and UV proof materials. The dense, durable replacement tops also tend to come with rope reinforced corners and rust resistant eyelets. Thus, they are suitable for a variety of climates. Not all canopy and tarp companies can say the same.

In addition to canopy top replacements, we also have semi-permanent carports available. They are super tough and well suited for challenging climates. What makes them so tough is that the tops are made with poly carbonate panels instead of fabric. Thus, depending on your location, you may want to consider upgrading to a semi-permanent structure at some point.

How Can You Make Good Use of Canvas Tarps?

There are many different tarps, and they are all used in various ways. The tarps usually all serve as a cover. Some people use tarps for a short period of time, and some people use the tarps for heavy-duty purposes. Canvas tarps are common in family homes. In a home setting, the tarps are mostly used as a protective layer. When the tarp is wet because it is covering things from the rain, you can still walk on it because it will not be slippery. This is one reason why canvas tarps are popular.
There are other great uses for canvas tarps. Here are some ideas that you may or may not have used canvas tarps for: 

Outdoor and indoor coverings: Canvas tarps can be used as an outdoor and indoor cover. Several objects can be prevented from being rusty because the tarps can serve as a breathable factor. 

General purposes: A canvas tarp that is used for general purposes normally is intended to cover things such as buildings, and other materials that could rust or rot.

Truck, trailer, and farm use: A canvas tarp can be used when the trucks, trailers, and farm equipment is being used for long-run transportation. As mentioned earlier, the canvas tarp is breathable, and the objects will be protected from rust or rot.
Boat covering: The canvas tarp can be used to protect the sides of the boat that are exposed. If you come across rain while you are on the boat, the canvas tarp will make sure the inside of the boat is clean.

Canvas tarps are very useful. The canvas tarps have plenty of value, and should be handled like any of your household items.

Tips for Selecting Portable Garages for Snowmobiles

According to the International Snowmobile Manufacturers Association’s figures, more than 1 million Americans own a snowmobile. If you just joined their ranks, portable garage ownership may be in your future too. Portable garages are excellent when it comes to storing snowmobiles. With that said, here’s how to select one for your new ride:

Portable Garages Tip#1: Snowmobile/Trailer Size

When selecting a portable garage to protect your new investment, you’ll need to take a few measurements. Many snowmobiles are around 10 feet long, 4 feet tall and 4 feet wide. They are also typically paired with pull-trailers. The pull-trailers are understandably a little bit bigger than the snowmobiles (11 or 12 feet). Some of them also come outfitted with ramps. As such, you are going to want to select a portable garage that can accommodate the size of your entire snowmobile set-up.

One that may work for you is our 12’ x 20’ x 8’ Peak Portable Garage. It features 6 foot tall and 10 foot wide doors. The fire retardant, white interior of the portable garage is 12 foot wide, 8 foot high and 20 foot long. So that should give you plenty of room to negotiate a sled and pull-trailer combo. The ample, dual doors will also give you an opportunity to vent out any fumes.

Portable Garages Tip #2: Frame/Fabric Construction

Once you know what size portable garage is needed, take a second to examine its construction. Remember, it has to be sturdy enough to handle snow, wind, sleet, hail and anything else that Mother Nature decides to chuck at it. Take our 9’ x 8’ x 10’ Peak Portable Garage as an example. It is made with a heavy-duty, pure steel frame that’s been bonded with a baked on, DuPont thermoset finish.

In addition, the frame is covered with a snug, high-quality, rip-stop fabric. The UV-treated fabric is lined for optimal use in low light situations. Furthermore, it is waterproof, fungal and age resistant. So it is apt to stand fast no matter how much snow Mother Nature kicks in its face.

Portable Garages Tip #3: Anchors/Accessories

Finally, take a look at the portable garage’s anchoring system and accessories. The anchoring system should be compatible with the ground the portable garage will sit on. Examples of items available include auger anchors, steel foot plates, drive rods, ratchet tie-downs and U-bolts.

To learn more about the previously mentioned portable garages and others, please contact us at (877) 811-3911. Our Canopies and Tarps’ experts would love to help you choose the ideal portable garage for your snowmobile and pull-trailer.

4 Tips for Selecting the Best Tarps for Autumn Hunting Trips

Autumn is the time of year when many hunters head off into their tree stands, duck blinds and sweet spots in search of elusive pray. If you hope to be part of a hunting party in the coming weeks, don’t forget to grab some hunting appropriate tarps. Here’s what to look for when you do:

Hunting Tarp Buying Tip #1: Material Design

When selecting tarps for autumn hunting trips, look for ones that have camouflage colors similar to those found at your favorite spots. That way, you and your hunting gear are more apt to blend into the environment.

Hunting Tarp Buying Tip #2: Material Strength

The strength of the materials used in the hunting tarps’ creation should also be taken into consideration. We’d suggest looking for camo tarps that are made with a 3-ply, 1000 denier polyethylene material. They are designed to be rot proof, tear resistant, waterproof, UV resistant and acid resistant. As such, you can leave the camo tarp set-up for weeks without fear of it deteriorating.

Hunting Tarp Buying Tip #3: Cold Weather Safe

Speaking of deteriorating, it is also a superb idea to examine the tarp’s grommets and ability to withstand cold temperatures. After all, there is a good chance that your hunting spot is going to get cold, wet and windy as the season progresses.

Because of that, you may want to select a camo tarp that has arctic flexibility, rope reinforced edges and sturdy, even spaced grommets. A good example of a tarpaulin that has such features is our 6’ x 9’ Camouflage Medium Duty Tarp. Designed to blend into a woodland setting, it is made with heat-sealed, rope lined hems. The washable tarp is suitable for use in cold climates and features rust-resistant grommets. The grommets are typically placed 36 inches apart from one another. So attaching it to your tree stand, ATV, duck blind or hunting truck shouldn't be a problem.

Hunting Tarp Buying Tip #4: Lightweight & Compact

Lastly, consider buying a hunting tarp that is lightweight and compact. Doing so will make it much easier to haul the tarp into and away from your favorite hunting locations. A good weight to look for is one that is less than 5 ounces.
