Using Tarps Instead Of Storage Shed – Tarps Disadvantages

Filling up the open areas of home with new tools and equipment’s for the day to day usage is a good idea. However, this is a biggest challenge for finding out enough storage space during rain or inadequate weather as well. All of them can’t be adjusted indoor during rain to protect them all; storage shed is the permanent solution for them to be safe and well.

But what if someone can’t afford a storage shed if he is having a wide space fill with tools and resources all equally important to him. Alternative to storage shed is the use of tarps that are portable, inexpensive and quick solution for situation like this.

But none of all the tarp is the permanent solution just like permanent sheds. They can’t provide long term protection and are unsafe as well.

Although the wide range of tarpaulin manufacturers perform their best in using quality raw materials during the manufacturing process, but still they have a wide range of disadvantages that everyone need to be aware of.

Variable Water Proof Capacity:

As long they are new, they might be the perfect option for using as a shed over materials of whatever type; they will be protected to some extent. But once they wear out, there is no option for the rain water to be controlled. The raw materials that are used in manufacturing these tarps are of the worst quality that even leaks in its fresh condition as well.

Accelerating Condensation:

There is another main problem of damage mostly occur due to water because of tarps cause by sun instead of rain. The space containing moisture beneath the tarp evaporates in the sun. The water proof capacity of tarps produce water droplets on its inner side that fall back on the items that are stored beneath, in condensation form. Thus water that stays under tarpaulin, usually cause bad news for all because material under that are damaged easily.

Breakdown Of Ultraviolet:

The average lifespan of plastic tarpaulin is not greater than 2-4 years, when they are exposed to direct sunlight. The presences of plastic in its raw material cause it breaking down into ultraviolet light under sunlight in a micro level daily. The result of exposing them to direct sunlight deteriorates it soon and finally they are not any more supportive to protect anything beneath them.

Failures During Tie-Down:

Grommets that are attached with tarps for supporting tie-downs sometime come out or loosen that causing the ropes to slack and thus the tarps are exposed to wind and cause damage. Also the continuous flapping of tarp with the wind cause it leaves altogether and exposes everything that is stored beneath.

Tarpaulin manufacturers have almost improved the quality of raw materials used in manufacturing tarps but still they are of no use other than those for which they are being manufactured. However, for limited time coverage, survive and emergency base usage, tarps can provide infinite number of shelter designs that fit best and provide solutions for environmental needs.

Need Of The Emergency Supplies In Disaster Situation

The emergency and disaster are the unfortunate things that can happen to us any time in our life. So it is better to be prepared for it from the beginning.

Non-Food Items (NFIs) For Life!

In time of catastrophe or calamity, the primary need is for the shelter, but even when there is shelter the life expectancy cannot be increased unless there are adequate items to ensure the survival of life. And just as everyone has the right to adequate housing, similarly everyone has the right to those elements that ensure the survival and life of the victims. These cluster elements can be used for the displaced as well as to the vulnerable group from those of the life-threatening elements. These ensure the improvement in living conditions as well as they facilitate the durability of life.

Non-Food Items

Here are some of the important and basic non-food items that should be delivered to the affected area along with emergency shelter:

  1. Mattress – at least 1 per person
  2. Blankets – at minimum 1 per person
  3. Kitchen sets – 1 per family
  4. Jerry cans – having capacity of 10 Liters and it should be 3 per family.
  5. Soap bars – 1 per person for every month
  6. Washing powder – for at least 0.25kg per person/month
  7. Stoves – 1 per family
  8. Plastic Sheets – 2 per family
  9. Sanitary napkins – 1 pc per woman, 14-45 years per month.
  10. Tents

These non-food items along with the emergency shelters are provided in cluster for the settlement of the affected individuals. There is a specific cluster response strategy that should be followed in three steps so that all the needs of the individuals should be properly addressed.

  1. Emergency Response – It allows for the analysis of the capacity of the present aid as well as the need of the affected individuals can be analyzed, so that the transparent and accountable displacement of items can be done.
  2. Transitional shelter – It allows for the settlements of the internally displaced people and the relocation to those individuals in a comparatively saver area.
  3. Support and durability – the survey should be conducted and the supportive needs should be provided as per the need of the people of that area. Also the voluntary needs should be provided to as much extent as possible so that the proper protection of life can take place.

These NFIs are distributed as per the need of the affected individuals or the community, so that the sustenance and the survival of life can be ensured for as long as the resettlement can be done.
