Relief Tarpaulin

PE Tarpaulins
  • Emergency housing and temporary shelter for the locations of natural disasters and refugees. For humanitarian and relief proposes.
  • Made of woven HDPE fibres in black & white colors, laminated on both sides with LDPE.
  • Stabilized against ultraviolet rays and extreme heat for long outdoor exposure.
  • As per UNHCR/UNICEF/ICRC/IFRC/MSF standards.
  • Marking and logo customized to your requirements.

Made of woven high-density black polyethylene (HDPE) fibers, warp x weft, laminated on both sides with low density polyethylene (LDPE) coating, with reinforced rims by heat sealing on all sides, (or 2 sides heat sealing and 2 sides double stitching), and a 5 millimetres diameter PE or PP rope on the edge, inside the hem. 1000 denier minimum.

Aluminium eyelets or equivalent on four sheet sides of the single sheetsat 100cm ±5cm centre to centre, providing very strong fixation points.

“Minimum 600 N both directions of warp and weft (BS 2576, 50mm grab test or equivalent).
Tear strength in plain sheet at state of origin Minimum 100 N both directions (BS 4303 wing tear or equivalent) or under ISO 4674 (A2).

Minimum 700N inside the eyelets as per ISO 1421-1, pulling lengthwise with a hook of 8mm wire diameter.

Stabilized against ultraviolet rays and excess heat for long outdoor exposure. Maximum 5% loss on original tensile strength under ISO 1421 after 1500 hours UV under ASTM G53/94 (UVB 313 nm peak).

Only one (01) is allowed along the middle of the sheet, length wise. Minimum resistance is 80% of the original tarpaulin tensile strength in the weft under ISO 1421 plus additional procedure.

Size, Weight, Colour, Fire Resistance

4m (+/- 1%)

5m (+/- 1%)

Minimum 190g/m2 ±20g/m2.

White sun reflective on both sides of the sheet without fluctuation in colour. Inner black fibers to ensure opacity.

The yarns of the base fabric must be black in both the warp and weft directions. Light grey is not acceptable.

Every 4x5m tarpaulin sheet should include a tag stitched in hem, with the manufacturer identification (letters not higher than 2.5cm). The tag should include the supplier and factory names, unique reference batch number and the date of manufacturing. No company logo should be included with the manufacturer’s marking.

Printing, Packing and Accessories

“A line with UNICEF logos must be printed on both sides of the plastic sheet, placed one meter from the bottom edge of the long side on the tarpaulin. For UNICEF visibility, size of logo is Length: 75 cm, Height: 18 cm.
The distance (space) between each logo should be 20.83 cm. (the UNICEF Logo should not be cut at any one point).Typeface Font: Univers. Colour specification: Process Cyan (100% cyan) CMYK of C100 M0 Y0 K0.”

Edges are straight and neat cut, and square.

Pass CPAI84 sections 6 with maximum 10s after flame average and maximum 30s after flame per test piece. Ageing under ISO 4892-2, type A, 360 hours

“5 tarpaulin sheets per bale.
Weight:19-21 kg”

The bale must be wrapped with a piece of similar material as the one of the tarpaulins. The wrapping must be properly folded, closely tight to the bale content, making a well-shaped cubic bale. Inside the bales the tarpaulins are not individually wrapped.

UNICEF horizontal logo, UNICEF item name and number, PO no., PO qty, Consignor, Consignee, Destination, Packing units (number/total number e.g. 1/20, 19/20).

Barcode is fixed and visible

“Pallets must be fumigated and heat treated as per IPSM15 standard
Palletized goods must not exceed the length and width of the pallet.
Pallets should be shrink wrapped and strapped.”
