A Reflectorized Tarpaulin, a specialized form of Tarpaulin, is a protective sheet used for temporary shelter. It is a large reinforced aluminized sheet which reduces incoming radiation by reflection measuring 5x10 meters with grommets around the edges to serve as tie-down or anchor points. A reflectorized tarpaulin has a shiny, highly visible surface.

A reflectorized tarpaulin is most commonly used to construct or protect temporary shelters, or to protect vehicles, equipment and supplies. A reflectorized tarpaulin is relatively light and flimsy compared to a standard tarpaulin manufactured from a heavy fabric but covers a far larger area.
