Tips For Buying Tarp Canopies

Tarp Canopies are a great way for you to get protection from the elements in your own backyard. They even make great companions if you are going on a camping trip as they will protect you from both the sun and any rain. Tarp Canopies were designed to be both portable and semi-permanent outdoor structures. These canopies really come in handy for weddings, family barbeques, pool parties, and any other event you want to host in your backyard.

From the time that man started needing shelter, there has always been some form of a canopy that existed. Nomadic tribes, for example, that followed animal herds had canopies that they could set up as temporary shelter. While the canopies of today are made out of materials such as synthetic fibers and steel that was not what the canopies that the Nomadic tribes would have used were made out of. There was a time in history where canopies were created using leaves, animal hides, wood, and any other materials that could be found in nature.

It was the creation of the pop-up canopy that really jump started the canopy industry. It was a man named Jim Lynch that created the pop-up canopy in the year 1983. He made the canopy with the intention of it being easy for individuals to use for everyday household needs. The promise was that the canopy was easy to set up and that it could provide a decent amount of shade.

When you are chopping for a tarp canopy, you need to decide what kind of material you want the tarps to be made out of. Choosing the right canopy material is not really a one size fits all concept. The material you choose depends on what you are using the canopy for.

Polyester is a water resistant and durable choice. It only provides limited protection when it comes to UV rays. Polyethylene is the best choice if you are not going to be moving the canopy around a lot. Vinyl is actually a polyester fabric that has a vinyl coating on top. The coating makes the material resistant to water and UV rays. When you are shopping for a canopy, you just need to make sure you know if you need one that is water resistant and/or UV ray resistant.
