Pallet Covers vs Pallet Cover Tarp What Are The Main Differences?

The primary difference between a pallet cover and a pallet tarp are three things. The three main differences are the materials used, the longevity of the cover, and the cost between a cover and tarp.


  • The Material Used In Covers & Tarps: We offer the less expensive alternative oa f Pallet Cover made froLow-Densityty Polyethylene. Pallet Cover Tarps are typically made from woven polyester.
  • Longevity: The longevity of Low-Density Polyethylene, as well as woven poly, can be influenced by a variety of factors like UVI, moisture, and extreme temperatures. Additives like a UV Blocker can be added to LDPE to extend the life of the material allowing some pallet covers to be more reusable. Generally, Plastic Pallet Covers will cover your items as a dust shield for years in a controlled environment.
  • Cost: Plastic pallet covers give you more bang for your buck, especially since they are reusable and basically last the same amount of time that woven poly tarps last as long as they are appropriately used.

Why Use Pallet Top Cover Sheets?

Plastic pallet covers or pallet shrink bags are used to protect the entire pallet contents. Pallet top sheets can be used in conjunction with pallet covers or bags or by themselves. Pallet top cover sheets are often used for several purposes. One they help to separate items layered on a pallet. Let’s say you have a pallet that’s half-filled with copy paper on the bottom and boxes of ink pens on the top. If by chance one of the boxes of pens is crushed it could leak its ink down and on to the copy paper running it. Another scenario would be that the top of the pallet needs temporary protection from moisture, dust, dirt, and or grease while it's being stored.
