In this phase, the drumhead of the Taurom is shaped. A PVC tarpaulin is worked into a drumhead of the Taurom on which to display the necessary tension.

PVC tarpaulin is durable but also lightweight. It is made of waterproof, hard-wearing material and the full-colour print makes the design and text pop off. Each sheet has an original print and also ensures that your own Taurom is unique.
In the first step, the tarpaulin is cut to size and the tracking holes are marked. At regular intervals, 16 points are marked using a template.

These points are punched and fitted with grommets and eyelets. Thanks to the sturdy rings, the sheet won’t tear. A polyester thread with a diameter of 2 mm is used to reinforce and allow maximum tensioning of the sheet. To ensure maximum fit of the drumhead, the frowns of the sheet are cut.



At this stage, the PVC tarpaulin is marked out and cut out by stencil and the fixing holes are marked out.


Sail rings and eyelets are inserted into the drumhead. Polyester thread provides the necessary reinforcement. Finally, the frowns are removed.

A drumhead is a membrane stretched over one or both open ends of a drum. The drumhead is struck with sticks, hammers or hands so that it vibrates and the sound resonates through the drum.
Drums were among the first instruments made by humans. With an animal skin, dried out and stretched over a wooden shell, you could make a simple percussion piece…. In the 20th century, the drum kit became an essential item on stage and a problem arose. Changing the environment from inside to outside and playing heavier, concentrated rhythms led to skin breaks, and because the skins were affected by any change in temperature and humidity playing a drum outside, in a hot club or in the rain, was practically impossible. Then in the early 1950s musicians everywhere were offered an alternative the newly developed polyester sheets. From then on, drumheads were virtually no longer made with animal skins.

Initially, experiments were carried out using the Taurom’s percussion sheet. The picture above shows how a pig’s bladder was stretched over a PVC pipe.

The tarpaulin is called Frontlit in professional terms and is the most commonly chosen material for banners. It is an inexpensive material and very sturdy; if you maintain it properly, it can last for years. Despite its cheap price, it is also a high-quality material that can be printed sharply and with high colour contrast.

Frontlit (510 gr/m2) is suitable for indoor and outdoor use. The ink hardly fades in the sun and the fabric can withstand all kinds of weather. For a long service life, however, we recommend bringing the banner indoors in strong winds. On average, a Frontlit banner lasts about 2 to 3 years, but this also depends on the circumstances (location/weather/application).

The polyester wire is a super-strong nylon tensile wire for guiding plants, installing windbreak cloth,…Application in fruit and tree nurseries both outdoors and in greenhouses.
