Engineered, Manufactured and Installed to Strict Quality Guidelines.

Tarp-Rite Inc. is a leading designer, manufacturer and installer of tension fabric buildings, has achieved recognition through the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) A660-10 certification program for steel building systems.

The CSA-A660-10 standard requires that steel structure manufacturers comply with the applicable engineering criteria and building codes. It was also developed to assist code enforcement officials in reviewing submissions for building permits incorporating a steel building system, and to help purchasers obtain a quality building. To be certified, building manufacturers must maintain production facilities, staff and quality assurance systems that are consistently capable of producing quality steel buildings. To ensure these design and production standards are met, the CSA-A660-10 standard requires a manufacturing facility to obtain documented approval from a licensed professional engineer. Tarp-Rite Inc. have also obtained the S367-09 standard which has to do with assembly of the fabric itself. Several tests and record keeping of the seam strength and material strength are required for this standard to assure customers of a safe, quality product.


The Canadian Welding Bureau (CWB) has certified TARP-RITE’S manufacturing facility to CSA Standard W47.1 “Certification of Companies for Fusion Welding of Steel” in Division 2. Division 2 requires that TARP·RITE INC retain the services of a qualified Welding Engineer a Certified Welding Supervisor is on staff to control TARP·RITE’S welding operations. CWB qualifies Welding Supervisors based on related experience, and examinations on welding symbols, weld faults, quality control and inspection methods. The welding operation is subject to third-party audits by CWB to assure continued commitment and performance to required standards.


ISO 9001:2008 sets out the criteria for a quality management system and is the only standard in the family that can be certified to.  This standard is based on a number of quality management principles including a strong customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, the process approach and continual improvement.  Using ISO 9001:2008 helps ensure that customers get consistent, good quality products and services.
