Fabric protects vehicles, heavy equipment
Custom-fit covering is an effective alternative to building large storage structures for vehicles, hardware and other equipment, according to manufacturer. Cover currently is being used in the Active Duty and Reserve Marine Corps commands in the continental United States and Pacific region for long-term storage. Covers ensure that there is less taping, tucking and folding compared to other forms of packaging or covering, according to manufacturer. Cover provides protection from corrosion during transportation and storage. Cover material is breathable, and the special coating reduces moisture and eliminates hardware corrosion on the protected item. Cover shields equipment from sun, snow, rain, salt spray or sand and other environmental-related damage during storage. Transhield Inc., Elkhart, Ind.
