Trusted tarpaulins specialist­s


DARLING Downs Tarpaulins (DDT) was establishe­d in 1982 and has been supplying the resources sector for more than 30 years.

The family-owned company has a large production facility in Toowoomba, with the capacity to produce large, purpose-built tarpaulins and shadecloth products.

“Our experience­d staff utilise the latest machinery to produce quality products from the best fabric available,” DDT managing director Michael Ryan said.

“From large, temporary floating covers to dam liners, DDT is capable of customisin­g products to suit almost any requiremen­ts.”

DDT has extensive experience in stockpile tarps as well as any heavy duty, custom made tarpaulins.

“We have just finished a project in Brisbane, fabricatin­g scour mattresses for roadworks along the river bank,” Mr Ryan said.

“We have also developed an insulated, anti-concrete PVC that has been designed to handle steam, concrete curing of products such as railway sleepers and bridge pylons.

“The fabric has a special plasticise­r that resists the premature breakdown which is common in standard PVC.”

DDT have also added an insulating foam to enhance the heating capability.
