Very fast order fulfillment.
We can provide a wide range of covers for most models of gliders. Some covers are ready in stock, other models are made on demand only (lead time about 15 days). Please choose your model and the fabric color.
The fabric used for the covers is lycra covered with a very thin metallic layer. The outside is coated with a rubberized, shiny surface. Standard care is handwashing at 30℃ using very mild detergent for example for wool. The fabric cannot be squeezed dry (should be drip-dryed). Ironining should be done at low heat (100 ℃), no steam and on the inside only.
Reflective hood covers in metallic fabric produced by us. It is a very elastic fabric coated with a very thin metal foil.
The covers are washable only by hand, maximum temperature 30 ° C using delicate detergents (such as wool). The fabric can be ironed, but at a low temperature (maximum 100 °) and usually on the non-metallized internal side. The outer metallized surface must not come into contact with the iron.
The shine and brilliance of the hood cover is limited in time as with repeated use the metal sheet tends to wear out. Non-standard colored fabrics (gold, blue, green, magenta etc) can show signs of wear and loss of luster more quickly.
The hood covers are available in models suitable for most single and two-seater gliders. The hood covers for the most common single-seat gliders (Discus, Ventus a / b, DG, LS, ASW-19/20 and ASG-29) in silver color are normally available in stock for prompt shipment. The hood covers for all other gliders and for all two-seaters are instead exclusively made to order. The estimated waiting times are 15 working days.
