Why use low-wick yarn in your PVC covers

Classic Coating LayeringLow Wick Yarn individual yarns treatedLow Wick Yarn Layering repels water

Normal PVC cloth yarns can absorb water as moisture wicks into the base cloth: you don't want that moisture in your PVC covers! We use a low-wick yarn as the base cloth for our cover material. Each individual yarn is treated and the treated base cloth repels moisture for longer lasting and so lower cost per use covers. Find out more by clicking here.

Going green: doing our bit with LED

Linings LED Light Pipe Center LED Light Close up Back Welder LED Lighting

At the beginning of summer we upgraded all of our factory lights to LED lights; this helped mitigate some of the energy cost increases we have all had to deal with. In these pictures, you can see newly installed lights in two of the major manufacturing lofts at Custom Covers.

New Production space opened
