How to install and care for your plastic grommet tarpaulins easily and safely

How to install and care for your plastic grommet tarpaulins easily and safely
12 Sep 2023

Tarps are a very versatile and practical element to cover, protect or decorate different surfaces. However, for them to perform their function correctly, they must be well supported and tensioned. To do this, plastic eyelets are used, rings that are placed on the edges of the tarps and that allow ropes, cables or hooks to pass through to fix them .

The steps to follow to install the tarps with eyelets are as follows:

  • Place the tarp over the surface you want to cover, protect or decorate.
  • Pass the ropes, cables or hooks through the eyelets.
  • Adjust the tension and position of the tarp until it is secure.

To keep your tarps with plastic eyelets in good condition, we recommend that you follow these tips:

  • Clean the canvas periodically with a damp cloth and neutral soap. Avoid using abrasive products or solvents that could damage the material.
  • Store the tarp in a dry, sun-protected place when not in use. You can fold or roll it, but try not to wrinkle it too much.
  • Protects the tarp from inclement weather and external agents, such as wind, rain, hail, dust, insects, etc. If you see a tear or tear in the canvas or eyelets, repair it as soon as possible.

The characteristics of our plastic eyelets and their advantages over metal eyelets

The plastic eyelets that we manufacture at JOPEVI have characteristics that make them superior to metal eyelets. These are some of the advantages of plastic eyelets :

  • They do not rust or corrode, making them ideal for working in outdoor or saline environments.
  • They withstand low and high temperatures, without deforming or losing color.
  • They are free of heavy metals such as cadmium, lead or mercury and phthalates, making them more ecological and recyclable.
  • They are protected from UV light, which prevents them from fading or cracking.
  • They are discreet and invisible, as they integrate perfectly with the color and material of the canvas.
  • They are suitable for use in food environments, according to EU and FDA regulations.
  • They have great resistance and durability, without losing flexibility or elasticity.
  • They offer a wide variety of colors and sizes, and can even be personalized with engravings.
