made-to-measure Craftsmanship

We are the best in the business when it comes to creating bespoke tarpaulin covers. Our team have years of experience manufacturing large-scale protective solutions for industrial and commercial equipment, particularly covers to withstand demanding oil & gas industry environments, but we also understand your needs when it comes to shielding your car, boat, barbecue or bike from the onslaught of the elements.

Our 100% waterproof PVC is ideally suited to outdoor use. It comes in a variety of weights and colours, and our team can tailor it to fit your specific requirements. Whether you are looking for an awning for your caravan, a tarpaulin for your tractor or simply want to keep muddy paws and shoes from messing up the car boot, just get in touch with us to talk through your requirements. Our team are here to help.

Made-to-measure and built to last - that's what we're about.

Craftsmanship in action

COVID-19 Coronavirus

Due to the current circumstances and uncertain challenging times, we have closed our manufacturing workshop at Montrose Rope and Sail ltd until further notice.

With being a family run business based in Montrose, the health and wellbeing of our staff, their families and our wider community is of utmost importance to us.

As our products are essentially made to order and all hand manufactured under our roof in Montrose, we have also closed our online shop until further notice.

We would like to thank our customers for their continued support and we will let you know when we are back up and running again.

Stay well & Stay safe.
