Here are 5 unique ways you can use our tarps & covers.

1. Movie Projector Screen

Our Extra Heavy Duty white tarps are perfect to use as a makeshift projector screen! Very popular for movies during camp nights, or for your local sports club presentation nights!

Customer credit: Brett purchased a 5m x 7m Extra Heavy Duty Tarp back in 2018 and shared a picture of it being used as an outdoor movie scrren.

Pro tip: Get your hands on some tarp clips to add extra eyelets and stretch the tarp out

2. Flood Protection

Our furniture covers are essentially a large rectangular bags and they can be turned upside down to cover your furniture pieces from the ground up. This prevents the legs of your furniture from being exposed to any flood waters.

Customer credit – We have to credit Joanne who was  hit by the floods in QLD in 2022 and reached out to us to check if she could flip our furniture covers and use them from the bottom up to protect her furniture pieces.
