Are you looking for plastic sheeting? With Wovar transparent construction plastic sheeting rolls T100 and T200, you can easily protect materials that you leave lying on the construction site. Additionally, clear plastic sheeting is also widely used for shielding open spaces. For example, in an extension where the facade cannot yet be completely closed. You can also use plastic sheeting for open insulation and woodwork that needs protection against rain, condensation, dust, or dirt.
T100 or T200?
Both types of plastic sheeting are perfectly suitable for indoor use, protecting your belongings against dust, moisture, and other external influences. For outdoor use, we always recommend using plastic sheeting T200. This is almost twice as thick as the plastic sheeting T100 and, therefore, a lot stronger. For example, there is a much lower chance of the plastic tearing due to strong winds.
Frequently asked questions
Why use plastic sheeting?
Using plastic sheeting can save you a lot of time and damage. You wouldn't want to have to replace the insulation because it got rained on, or that the floor is soaking wet because the window had not been placed yet. It can also prevent your tools from damage due to moisture, dust, or dirt.
What can I use plastic sheeting for?
Plastic sheeting is incredibly versatile. It can be used to cover tools, furniture, or other large objects to protect them against dust, dirt, or moisture. For example, when you are painting the walls, plastic sheeting can protect your furniture or floor from paint. Plastic sheeting is also used to shield unfinished structures, such as a wall that isn't finished yet and needs protection from the rain.
How do I fasten plastic sheeting?
Before use, cut the plastic sheeting to size with a snap-off knife.
We recommend fastening the plastic sheeting with tape, (semi)heavy objects, or clamps.
It is important not to use any pins or sharp objects to secure the plastic sheeting. When you push the pin through the plastic sheeting, you increase the chance of also tearing the area around the hole the pin creates.
T100 vs T200
T100 plastic sheeting is 35 μm (0.035 mm) thick. This plastic sheeting is perfect for indoor use, such as temporarily covering your furniture or tools to protect them from dust or paint.
T200 plastic sheeting is 60 μm (0.06 mm) thick. Because it is thicker, it is much stronger, and can withstand changes in the weather and strong winds. This plastic sheeting is suitable for indoor and outdoor use, and can also be used to temporarily cover unfinished structures.

The main purpose of plastic sheeting is to prevent damage from rain, condensation, or dust. Clear plastic sheeting can of course be used for many more applications, such as covering furniture when painting a room. Or to cover a car that you would like to store for a longer period of time but still keep clean. The difference in type T100 and T200 is in the thickness of the plastic sheeting. When covering objects indoors without sharp edges or points, choose clear plastic sheeting T100. For outdoors and objects with protruding points and sharp edges, opt for clear plastic sheeting T200. The T100 is thinner (35 μm) dan the T200 (60 μm), which also explains the difference in price.
Using plastic sheeting T100 & T200
Using clear plastic sheeting to protect your construction site or DIY projects should be done without pins or pegs. Pins and pegs create holes in the plastic sheeting, increasing the chance of ripping the sheet. In the event of a gust of wind, there is a good chance that the plastic sheeting will tear. Always use clamps or (relatively) heavy objects such as stones to keep the sheeting in place.
