Protective Fabric Covering Solutions
Railroad and Automotive Covers
Protecting rail cars, locomotives, or automobiles is a tough challenge. Corrosion, moisture, UV rays, dust, road grime, rodents, and scratching are all hazards while in storage or during transportation.
Locomotive – 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.
Automotive – Since Transhield covers are custom designed, they are easy to install. A team of two can cover and shrink a car in less than three (3) minutes. And because they are made to withstand harsh elements and endure long transportation journeys, they save preparation time and warranty claim dollars in the end.Uncover the Technology
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.

Prevention of Corrosion in Electronic Devices Use Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor Enhanced Protective Covers
Preventing corrosion in electronic devices can be achieved through VCI chemistry implemented into protective covers. A vapor corrosion inhibitor (VCI) is a chemical substance, or combination thereof, which prevents or significantly reduces the onset of corrosion.
