UNHCR UNICEF approved Tarpaulin 4 X 5 M

  • Material:

    made of woven high-density black polyethylene (HDPE) fibers, warp x weft, laminated on both sides with low density polyethylene (LDPE) coating, with reinforced rims by heat sealing on all sides, (or 2 sides heat sealing and 2 sides double stitching), and a 5 millimeters diameter PE or PP rope on the edge, inside the hem. 1000 denier minimum.

  • Tarpaulin Size:

    the finished size of each sheet is 4 x 5 meters +/- 1 %.

  • Effective area:

    20.00 m2.

  • Material weight:

    minimum 190 gr/m2 +/-20g/m2.

  • Tensile strength:

    minimum 600 N both directions of warp and weft (BS 2576, 50 mm grab test, or equivalent).

  • Tear strength:

    minimum 100 N both directions (BS 4303 wing tear or equivalent) or under ISO 4674 (A2).

  • UV Resistance:

    stabilized against ultraviolet rays and excess heat for long outdoor exposure. Maximum 5% loss on original tensile strength under ISO 1421 after 1500 hours UV under ASTM G53/94 (UVB 313 nm peak).

  • Welding:

    Only one (01) is allowed along the middle of the sheet, length wise. Minimum resistance is 80 % of the original tarpaulin tensile strength in the weft under ISO 1421 plus additional procedure.

  • Reinforcement eyelets:

    Provided with aluminum eyelets or equivalent on four sheet sides of the single sheets at 100 cm +/-5cm centre to centre, providing very strong fixation points.

  • Color:

    white sun reflective on both sides. Inner black fibers to ensure opacity.
