Why is Fabric more tempting than Steel

When you purchase a fabric covered structure, you expect the fabric won’t let you down, right? Whether it be fire, cyclonic winds, general wear-and-tear, harsh UV rays, or even an accidental graze, you not only require the tarp to be rugged and durable enough to handle the knocks of industry, but also to have long lasting endurance to give years of trouble-free service.


The DomeShelter™ Fabrics:

The tear-resistant option blocks 100% of UV rays making it the perfect choice for workshop and storage use.

Featuring a tensile strength of 2254 Newton’s, it is among the toughest materials in the fabric industry, giving you an ultra-tough resistance at minimal cost. Using a tear-stop woven scrim, exclusive to DomeShelter Australia, it allows the tough option to combat general wear and tear especially experienced in frequent re-installation of shelters.

The unique fire-resistant option offers an opaque option which emits small amounts of light while maintaining the area underneath truly waterproof.

With these specifications, you can have peace-of-mind that your tarp will withstand extreme weather while providing ideal conditions for bulk storage where sensitive materials can be safeguarded.
