Tarpaulin sheeting makes perfect weather and waterproofing for building site areas. This helps in keeping the construction site area dry and preventing it from becoming wet and slippery. Covering equipment and supplies with a tarpaulin sheet protects them from the elements, keeping building materials dry and helping to prevent rusting and damage to machinery and power tools. Tarpaulins can also be used as a groundsheet to keep materials safe from dampness penetrating from below.
