Dura Skrim has earned a strong reputation in the construction and agriculture industries. Here’s why we think Dura Skrim is a top-tier product.

Fire Retardant

Dura Skrim offers plastic sheeting that is exceedingly fire retardant to adhere to safety protocols. Americover carries Dura Skrim® Fire Retardant Reinforced Plastic Sheeting, which features a heavy-duty scrim reinforcement between layers of high-strength polyethylene film. This is an ideal product when building codes require a flame retardant product.

Indoor and Outdoor Use

Americover carries many Dura Skrim products that are ideal for both indoor and outdoor applications. Our 12 Mil White/Black Dura-Skrim® Reinforced Plastic Sheeting serves as a great outdoor cover or liner; it features concentration UV inhibitors and thermal stabilizers that extend service life for up to a year in fully exposed outdoor conditions. For long-term outdoor applications lasting up to 5 years, ask us about 12 mil Dura-Skrim® Black/Black.

Short Term Application Options

Not all jobs need the most heavy-duty plastic sheeting. For this reason, we also provide thin flexible plastic sheets which are ideal for seasonal greenhouse plastic sheeting. A prime example is our 6 Mil Temporary Greenhouse Cover; it consists of two sheets of high-strength virgin polyethylene laminated together with a third layer of molten polyethylene. This mighty 6 mil plastic features diamond reinforcement that responds to tears immediately by surrounding and stopping the tear.

High Puncture and Tear Strengths

As aforementioned, our Dura Skrim plastic panels are highly puncture and tear-resistant. Our 20 Mil Dura Skrim® Reinforced Plastic Sheeting is extremely resistant to damage, making it ideal as a liner or cover for a variety of construction and agricultural endeavors. This poly sheeting is also an FDA-compliant liner for aquaponics and other environmental containment applications.

Certified Vapor Retarder

Most Dura Skrim products are certified vapor retarders that work to stop moisture migration in ceiling, wall, and under slab applications. Products with this feature are great for high traffic or poor topsoil crawl spaces that require a durable crawl space vapor barrier. 8 Mil is a certified vapor retarder passing ASTM E 96 standards with a 0.039 perm rating.
