CAR COVERS

 

 

First Class Additions car covers are specially designed to protect cars during storage, which is why they are well known and much used in the field of classic and exotic cars, as these are not driven every day. But we are also experiencing increasing interest from ‘regular’ car owners who have discovered the advantages of a good car cover.

 

 

 

A quality car cover must – at the very least – be:

 

 

 

 

breathable

non-scratch

non-hygroscopic (does not absorb moisture)

dust proof

a good fit

 

 

In addition, an outdoor cover must also be waterproof and UV resistant.

 

Breathable

 

It is essential that a car cover is made of fully breathable material to allow for the escape of condensation when it evaporates (see more about condensation under Fact and Fiction). Luckily, nowadays most people are aware of this and reject cheap but non-breathable nylon and PVC covers for what they are.

 

 

Non-scratch

 

One would think the need for a soft inner lining to prevent scratches would go without saying, but how many car covers can you find that do actually have one?

 

 

Non-hygroscopic

 

The material must be moisture repellent – even for an indoor cover! If the material absorbs and/or retains moisture (like cotton) it will lie on the car like a damp cloth. A cotton cover should only be used in a completely dry room, which in our climate means in a heated room. This is why a good universal car cover should not contain cotton.

 

 

Dust proof

 

Above all, a car should be protected from dust and dirt. Any woven material will let in some dust through the weave. A non-woven material offers better protection.

 

 

Good fit

 

The cover must be the correct size for the car and have some means to keep it in place. It should not touch the floor where it could pick up dirt and grit which might cause scratches the next time the cover is put over the car, and it should not be blown off by every slight breeze or each time the garage door is opened.

 

 

Whilst other car covers fulfil only one or two of the above requirements, First Class Additions car covers are made of specially developed materials fulfilling all of these requirements. This makes them superior to the other products available.

 

Our car covers can be divided into two main groups:

 

car covers for indoor use (Supertex)

and

car covers for outdoor use (Moltex)

 

In addition to these two main ranges we also offer various covers for special projects, made to measure for each customer's specific needs. Examples are: reveal covers, traffic jam prevention covers (covering a damaged vehicle to prevent traffic jams caused by onlookers), covers with a club logo, etc.
