Choosing a protective cover is not something to be done without asking questions, at the risk of ending up with a cover that is not adapted to your needs, that does not withstand certain conditions, and that will not protect your vehicle. It may even cost more money in maintenance. So to save you hours of thinking, we have taken this time for you.
First of all, it is important to know whether the cover will be used in the interior or the outside. Depending on the case, you will be faced with different constraints.
How the different pictograms work
This set of pictograms allows you at a glance to find the parent category of the product. Whether it is a cover, a carpet, or maintenance equipment... Some products that are compatible with several types of vehicles may contain several of these pictograms.
This set of pictograms makes it possible to quickly determine the category of a product. Ranging from the vehicle cover, to the boat engine cover, through the motorcycle/scooter aprons and others carpet.
This set of pictograms allows you to quickly determine the most suitable location for the product. Some covers are more suitable for Inside or outside, and some of them can even be used in a mixed. Hail covers should only be used in case of hail and not as an everyday cover.
This pictogram means that the equipment is recommended for indoor use. Outdoor use could degrade this product and would be ineffective.
This pictogram means that this product meets the criteria for outdoor use (rain/sun).
This pictogram means that the product meets the criteria for both indoor and outdoor use. It allows it to be used in both situations.
This pictogram means that the product is intended for use in hail weather. Prolonged use is not recommended. This is not an outdoor cover, but a hail use cover.
Types of materials
This set of pictograms indicates the type of material from which the product is made. Our shop has a range of lot of materials.
Jersey is a commonly used fabric. It is a material slight and extensible while being a fabric breathing. It can be machine washed up to 30°C.
SFS is a fabric waterproof and durable consisting of 3 layers of microporous films allowing moisture to drain away without letting water and other liquids or dust in. Soft and strong, it is a material that is used both in hospitals and as a protective cover.
Composite materials are a mixture of two materials, of which the properties complement each other. Particularly used on our caravan covers, it allows for a waterproofing and high elasticity at the same time, while resisting both the sun and allowing the use of mixed.
EVA foam :
EVA foam has a structure that makes it very durable, it has, among other things high resistance to tearing or compression, which makes it a material extensible that will last over time. EVA foam is also resistant to many external elements, such as liquids or UV radiation. Despite its resistance, it manages to maintain a certain lightness which allows the production of covers handy and pleasant as shown in the range Coverlux hail
PVC is a material very versatile and widely used around the world. It has a long life, can be recycled, and is water resistant! We even mix it with about ten percent of polyester to get an even more waterproof and resistant cover. With its water and UV protection, this makes it a material very suitable for outdoor covers.
Tyvek is a synthetic material made from polyethylene fibres. It is very lightweight, durable, recyclable and breathable. It also has the ability to resist water, abrasion and even bacteria, is high resistance to stretching will make it difficult to tear. Despite its thin appearance, it is a cover that is equally suitable for indoor and outdoor conditions with a very high resistance. Tyvek is manufactured by the renowned multinational brand DUPON®.
Polyester & Polypropylene :
These two materials are very similar despite some differences between them. They are polymers that are widely used in textiles. They are both materials that are very resistant to moisture and are very durable. In the field of covers, the main difference between them is their UV resistance. Despite the fact that polypropylene does not absorb any moisture or liquid, It's not very resistant to UV rays. It will degrade if exposed to the sun for too long. This is why our boat covers will be made of Polyester, which leaves very little moisture but also ensures a high level of high UV resistance. The thermal resistance of polypropylene will make it more suitable for indoor use.
TUFT carpet :
The Tuft carpet is based on the design principle of a sewing machine by stitching into textile backing. Comfortable, and very soft, this carpet offers a lighter, smoother, more premium finish.
Needled carpet :
Needlepunched carpet follows the same manufacturing process as felts by stitching layers of fibres. Comfortable, economical, this carpet will recall wool and opt for a more natural feel.
Types of protection
All our cover offer protection to more or less elements or have specialities. These criteria will help you to know whether or not you are looking at a cover that is more suitable for certain conditions such as dust or the risk of animal scratches indoors, and so on.
This pictogram means that the equipment is suitable for dust protection to keep the vehicle clean.

The presence of this pictogram indicates a protection against falling resins which could cling to your vehicle and cover it with sticky stains or bird droppings if you stop your vehicle near a wooded area or tree.
These pictograms above allow you to know the specific characteristics of your protective cover. The softness of its fabric, the fact that it is a highly breathable material, the fact that it can withstand extreme negative and positive temperatures, and so on... Each of these specificities will allow you to find the cover corresponding to your needs and expected comfort.

Types of covers
With interior protective covers, your main concerns will be related to the dust that could land on the vehicle. Especially for handymen in their garage. The cover will protect your vehicle and save you a lot of maintenance time. It also protects the vehicle from various risks of scratch that could be related to your pets, such as cats that could scratch when jumping on the vehicle, or to fall accidental objects while passing by, And if a vehicle is stored in a public garage, you are never safe from a knock on the door from the neighbouring vehicle. The problem with indoor storage is also related to the heat and humidity. It is important to go for a material that is more breathing This allows the cover to breathe and prevents moisture from attacking the vehicle. On our site, you will find interior covers designed to be durable, breathable, and easy to assemble. For each of your covers, you will find after its description a technical sheet allowing you to quickly determine its specificities.
With outdoor protective covers, your main constraints will be weather. Whether it's raining, hailing or sunny, This is a set of factors that should not be overlooked at all. But the choice of outdoor cover comes down to "hail protection" or "rain/sun protection". Because it is not the same level of material breathing. A hail cover will be more suitable for occasional use, It is weather dependent and will require some handling each week to prevent condensation and moisture. Being made to withstand extreme temperatures and hailstones, its strength may come at the cost of a heavier weight requiring a second person for installation. While a rain cover will also be resistant to UV sun or rain. At the same time, it allows for a more practical lightness. But again, each cover has its own level of breathability and needs to be handled more or less weekly.
There are also covers for both indoor and outdoor use. Whether it is rain, sun, dust and moisture. And at the same time while maintaining an optimal level of breathability!
The boat cover allows you to protect it during prolonged periods without use. In order to prevent it from getting damp, rain stagnate in the boat. Or protect it from bird droppings. With fastening straps, the cover will stay in place even in bad weather.
