Cotton Tarps & Nets
Darling Downs Tarpaulins are Australia’s most experienced Cotton Module Cover fabricators.
DDT manufacture all styles of Cotton Tarps and are more than happy to manufacture to your own design and colour.
We use the best Australian made and overseas fabrics available. Such fabrics are UV stabilised and will, with careful handling and storage, last for many seasons. Many of our customers have achieved more than 10 seasons from their DDT module tarps.
We also make Cotton Transport Nets and our workmanship is guaranteed.
We produce several styles of belted covers, all designed without ropes. Our belted covers have 50mm wide webbing straps and come with a quick release metal cam buckle for ease of use. Belted covers have a generous drop over the side of the module and have an extra flap below the belt to protect your cotton.
The traditional fitted covers, can be made to be fitted both ends or just one. They are still available and designed to be installed with ropes. Fabric sizes are now metric which enables us to allow for longer and more desirable drop to give better protection for your cotton.
All covers have welded seams and are stencilled with your company name as required. Flat tarps are also available. They come with welded hems and eyelets. DDT also offer a timely repair service to ensure that you get the maximum life possible from your covers.

Grain Bunker Tarps
DDT Grain Bunker Covers enable bulk products, such as grain, to be stored securely and efficiently and size is no problem.
Storing grain in bunkers can deliver:
- Economy – for medium to large tonnage, you won’t find a better way to store grain.
- Ease of sealing the storage and enabling efficient and effective gas treatment for insect control.
- Versatility – you can cheaply re-load your bunkers to suit crop paddock rotation
- Opportunity – if your cropping programme fluctuates from year to year – why have large fixed (& high cost) storage infrastructure – which will be under utilized in poor (or non-crop) years?
Take a look at our Grain Bunker Brochure for some good advice on building a bunker or instead, we can send you our Bunker Kit that is full of useful information.
DDT Bunker Covers can be made from Canvacon – economical & lightweight (260-305gsm), UV stabilised and popular for over 25 years; Landmark – heavier (340gsm) and especially suited for windy sites; PVC – heavier still (500gsm – 600gsm) – ‘hugs the stack’.
Colour – We recommend cooler colours – eg Ice Blue – especially in the hotter parts of Australia.

Even under ideal storage conditions, mice can present a problem leading to damage of your grain. Have a look at this Mouse Management Fact Sheet for some useful information.
