The power of Pro-Tec

Spring is on our doorsteps and before we know it, we will be battling between sunny skies and April showers. A lot of people ask if our covers are suitable to be used all year round and the answer is yes! We want to remind people that they don’t have to take their covers off when Summer comes because our covers still offer incredible protection.

What a lot of people don’t know is that our covers actually offer UV protection which means they are perfect for Spring when it’s raining and sunny at the same time, because whilst you protect your caravan from damp you can equally protect it from UV fading! What more could you ask for?

Even when we reach Summer, if we’re lucky enough to get some sun the covers will be perfect for covering your vehicle when it’s not in use as it will keep it protected from the damaging UV rays from the sun.

We also provide all of our customers with the option to have a clear insert placed into their cover to allow a solar panel which can continue working whilst the cover is on. Some companies warn against this, however, the clear PVC that we use is not only fire resistant but also UV stable, so you don’t need to worry about it becoming brittle and cracking in sunny conditions. They also do not cause any damage to solar panels with overheating. Again, showing that the cover is perfect for sunnier days!

We do also receive a lot of questions asking if the covers are 100% waterproof, especially since Spring can be unpredictable and there can be heavy rain one minute and sunshine the next! Our covers are waterproof up to 1 metre of water, which means that 1 metre of water can sit on top of the fabric before any moisture will seep through. This is incredibly strong protection from water but also still allows for the cover to have its breathability. Without this, your vehicle would sweat under the cover and you would have condensation, mould or even mildew on your vehicle.

It’s actually impossible for a cover to be both breathable and waterproof, as the only waterproof fabrics are vinyl’s and plastics which can scratch your vehicle and also as mentioned cause condensation and mould on your vehicle. Your vehicle will be massively protected from the elements with our covers, whilst allowing your vehicle to breathe.
