Protection during storage and transfer
Protecting railcars and locomotives is a tough challenge. Corrosion, moisture, UV rays, dust, grime, rodents and vandals are all potential hazards while assets sit idle.
Transhield covers offer protection against graffiti, vandalism, corrosion, mold, and environmental paint damage during storage. Our covers have been field tested and developed in conjunction with major rail carriers to address industry specific requirements.

Why Transhield Works
Advanced Fabrics to Protect your Equipment
Easy to install and shrinks to provide a snug fit. Options include zippers, windows, tie-downs, etc. as needed for accessibility to the covered product.
Non-abrasive composition that prevents damage to paint, gel coat, or even decals.
Protects from the damage caused by UV rays, rain, snow, sleet, dust, wind, and airborne pollutants.
Optional VCI can be added to the fabric to prevent corrosion. VCI bonds to the metal surface and interrupts the electro-chemical reaction that causes corrosion.

Are VCIs Dangerous?
How VCIs are applied will determine their level of toxicity to humans. High doses, or 100% pure samples of VCI compounds in raw form, when inhaled, ingested, or contacted by humans, can be toxic.
