Coverzone's Unique Side Protection System.

If you have ever had a nice shiny car in near perfect condition and worried that someone is going to park next to you and jam their car door into your car's bodywork then this is for you!
Coverzone have now developed a side protection buffer system that they can install in your new cover prior to despatch. This clever option permanently fixes a strip of high impact buffer pads along the side of the car in the door and side panel area where they are most vulnerable to door dings and scuffs.

The buffer pads are permanently fitted to the cover with double stitching and whilst they do not absolutely guarantee that your car will remain in pristine condition, they will provide much more protection in all those visible areas that are both costly and difficult to repair.
Once we receive the order for your new cover with side protection system we will take a stock cover and our skilled machinists will add the option to the inner lining on both sides. The cover will be a little bulkier when folded but the pads cleverly concertina closed when not in use so handling and storage of the cover is still a breeze.

Your car is a valuable possession and protecting it to ensure that it stays in pristine condition is your number one priority. A top quality cover should offer protection from the elements, enhance vehicle security and be easy to fit and remove.

Not only should the outdoor car cover offer an effective solution to shield your vehicle from rain, snow and airbourne debris, but also it should protect against UV rays, dust, and other environmental hazards.

Choosing the right car cover nowadays can be overwhelming given the numerous options available on the market. It appears that everyone is claiming theirs are superior but in this blog post, we will guide you through the questions to ask and simplify the process of selecting the best outdoor car cover to ensure optimal protection for your prized possession.

Consider the Material

Car cover fabric plays THE crucial role in providing adequate protection and long life of the cover. Look for covers made from durable, weather-resistant fabrics such as polyester or polypropylene and ask about UV treatment of the fabric. The best materials offer excellent water resistance, UV protection, and combine breathability with strength and durability, preventing moisture buildup and mould growth. Additionally, ensure that the cover has a soft, non-abrasive inner lining to prevent scratches on your car's paintwork.

Size and Fit

Choosing a car cover that fits your vehicle snugly is vital to maximise protection. Look for covers specifically designed for your car's make and model as they will provide a precise fit. Consider covers with elastic hems or adjustable straps to ensure a secure and tight fit that won't be easily dislodged by wind or other external forces. A well-fitted cover will also prevent dust and debris from entering and damaging your car.

Protection Against UV Rays

Prolonged exposure to sunlight can cause fading and damage to your car's paint, interior, and rubber components. Opt for a car cover that offers excellent UV protection, preferably with a high UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) rating. UV-resistant covers will help maintain your car's appearance and prevent premature ageing of its materials.

Breathability and Ventilation

While protection from external elements is crucial, it's equally important to allow air circulation to prevent moisture buildup on the paintwork or in the car. Look for car covers with waterproof membranes or built-in vents that promote airflow, preventing condensation and mould growth. Breathable covers will also help prevent the formation of musty odours inside your vehicle if you leave it with windows slightly cracked open.

Additional Features

Consider additional features that can enhance your car cover's functionality. Features like a provision for securing the cover with a lock or cable, detachable straps that can be placed in the parking spot first and storage bags that are large enough to stow the cover after use are worth considering. These features can further enhance the convenience and effectiveness of your outdoor car cover.

Choosing the best outdoor car cover is essential to protect your vehicle from the elements and maintain its appearance and value. By considering factors such as material, size and fit, UV protection, breathability, and additional features, you can make an informed decision when selecting a car cover. Remember to prioritise quality and durability to ensure long-lasting protection for your prized possession.
