Better Than Your Average Camping Tarp

ARK Camping Tarps have been designed with the avid camper in mind. They are strong, yet lightweight, 100% waterproof and they don’t crack or peel in the sun. If you want a waterproof camping tarp that is also lightweight and strong you don’t need to look any further than ARK Tarps.

ARK Camping Tarps are made out of XF Film. This is a specialised Swiss patented film that makes our tarps strong, reliable and 100% waterproof for life.

Tried & Tested

Our Camping Tarps are tried and tested in the Australian bush as well as in gruelling outdoor conditions and have performed consistently and exceptionally well!

Additionally, the camping tarps have a very high tear Strength and come with Ultrasonic Welded Eyelets which are strongest in class.

Including the above, we stock many different types and sizes of tarps for sale! You can use our tarp finder to find the perfect tarp for your application or check out our extensive range of tarps and covers here.

How Not To Rig A Tarp

Check out our tips for creating a suspended shelter here.

When using the tarp as a suspended cover we highly recommend that you do the following:
1. Ensure that all the eyelets are secured to distribute the load on the tarp evenly.
2. Rope is applied across the top of the tarp to prevent the tarp from becoming a parachute against the wind. In doing so tie a rope to every eyelet, passing it over the tarpaulin to the opposite eyelet tying the rope slightly shorter than the tarpaulin at that eyelet.
3. Allow for water to run off from the tarp and not pool in the middle. The water will not cause any leaks, but the pooling will add extra weight and strain to the eyelets. Once the tarp has been set up, you can pour some water over it to ensure that there is enough slope provided for the water to run off.

Note – We recommend our stronger grade tarps with stronger eyelets where the tarp is to be used as a suspended roof shelter or where strong pressure will be applied to the corners and side eyelets. The tarpaulin should be roped over to avoid the “parachute effect”. The performance of each tarp varies in accordance with the use and type of install.
