What is the Best Size for Tarpaulin?

Choosing the best size for an HDPE tarpaulin depends greatly on the specific needs and applications for which it is intended. Welpack Industries Pvt. Ltd. offers a variety of sizes, each suited to different tasks, from small covers for garden furniture to large covers for industrial use. Here’s how to determine the best size for your needs based on common applications.

Understanding Tarpaulin Sizes

At Welpack Industries Pvt. Ltd., we offer an extensive range of tarpaulin sizes to accommodate a variety of applications:

  • 6×6 ft to 9×9 ft: Ideal for small-scale uses such as covering motorcycles, sandboxes, small garden furniture, or barbecues.
  • 15×9 ft to 18×15 ft: Suitable for medium-sized applications like covering cars, boats, or small swimming pools.
  • 21×15 ft to 30×24 ft: Perfect for larger applications, including equipment covers, medium-sized outdoor areas, or temporary shelters.
  • 30×27 ft to 40×40 ft: Great for very large tasks such as industrial covers, large vehicles, or sizable outdoor event spaces.
  • 60×40 ft: Best suited for extensive industrial or agricultural uses, like covering large machinery, warehousing needs, or big agricultural fields.

Tips for Choosing the Best Tarpaulin Size

  1. Measure the Area: Before selecting a tarpaulin, accurately measure the area or items you need to cover. Ensure to add a few extra feet on each side to allow for adequate coverage and the ability to secure the tarpaulin properly.
  2. Consider Overlap and Secure Fit: It’s generally recommended to have an overlap if you are covering objects with varying heights or if you need to attach the tarpaulin to something. This helps in providing extra protection and keeping the tarp secure.
  3. Think about Handling and Storage: Larger tarpaulins can be bulky and heavy, making them difficult to handle and store. Consider how you will manage the tarpaulin when not in use.
  4. Future Proofing: If you anticipate needing the tarpaulin for various other uses, opting for a slightly larger size than currently necessary might provide more versatility in the future.

Common Uses for Specific Sizes

  • 15×12 ft and 18×12 ft: These sizes are very versatile for residential and commercial use, good for covering vehicles, as roofing tarps during construction, or as ground covers.
  • 30×30 ft and 36×30 ft: Excellent for large areas needing protection from elements, suitable for large gatherings or as covers for big agricultural areas.
  • 40×30 ft and 40×40 ft: Ideal for commercial and industrial applications, including as covers for large equipment or storage areas.
  • 60×40 ft: The largest option, best used in situations where extensive coverage is needed, such as during large construction projects, in agriculture, or for covering big industrial machinery.


The best size for an HDPE tarpaulin depends on your specific coverage needs, the environment in which it will be used, and how you plan to manage the tarp. At Welpack Industries Pvt. Ltd., our extensive range of sizes ensures that you can find the perfect tarpaulin for any application, from small personal projects to large industrial needs.
