This isn’t one of those flimsy lightweight tarps that claim to have durable hardware, the Kookaburra Heavy Duty Dura Green Tarp actually has reinforced corners and is made with tough materials. It’s a great all-rounder.
Heavy Duty Moulded plastic is sewn into the corners and 3mm polypropylene rope welded around the edges. This is all teamed up with UV stabilised fabric and rust-proof aluminium eyelets at 60cm intervals… no wonder it’s got a tonne of uses!
Perfect for temporary shade, covering the trailer or kids sandpit, or as a camping groundsheet, the kookaburra Dura Green Tarp will stand up rigorous use and put up with continuous outdoor exposure.
What is the UV rating of this tarp? I am choosing between this and the Oztrail camper fly, and this tarp looks like a better UV protection than the camper fly. Please confirm. How about rain?
The Kookaburra Dura Green Heavy Duty Tarp does not have a UV rating, but it is made from UV stabilised fabric, and is silver coated to reflect light - so it should be really effective at deflecting the sun. There is no waterhead rating on this tarp, but it does say on the packaging that it is waterproof - so it should hold up in rainy conditions.
I can't confirm whether the Dura Green Tarp has a higher UV rating than the Oztrail Camper Fly as they both don't have official ratings, but I could take an educated guess and say that due to the thicker fabric, and silver coating on the Dura Green, it will be slightly more effective than the polyester of the Camper Fly.
The Camper fly doesn't have a waterhead rating, but it's made from UVtex fabric which has been given a 2000mm waterhead rating by Oztrail on their other products, so we could guess that it would be the same rating for the Camper fly.
Both will provide you with protection from rain, but the Dura Green Tarp probably has the edge for UV protection.
