Weathershield HD Heavy Duty Version for Maximum Sun and Weather Protection
Developed primarily for intense sun environments and long term storage, WeatherShield® HD uses heavy denier thread for maximum UV opacity. People who live in intense sun climates and along the coast will benefit most from this extreme performance fabric as well as owners seeking the best cover for long term all weather out door storage. WeatherShield® HD process saves 1,000 gallons of water for every 1,000 yards of fabric produced. WeatherShield HD not only provides UV opacity, it repels water, blocks dust, tree sap and bird droppings, and is still breathable to allow moisture and heat to escape from under the cover. The base material for WeatherShield HD is woven by Glen Raven Mills the makers of Sunbrella, using solution dyed UV resistant polyester fibers. Not only is the fabric solution dyed, the 300 denier construction is 40% heavier than regular WeatherShield HP and the heavier denier thread provides double the tear and tensile strength. This superior base fabric is then finished with the patented EPIC by Nextec encapsulation process, the same high performance finish used on WeatherShield HP fabric. Using computer controlled proprietary processes Nextec forces specially formulated polymers inside the fabric to bond to each individual thread and fill the valleys between the woven fibers. These special polymers have amazing elasticity to block moisture and dirt, while still maintaining the breathability of the fabric. Nextec's slogan is "Outsmart the Outdoors". It's not as compact as WeatherShield HP, and the heavier denier fibers aren't as silky-smooth, but for maximum performance in the harshest environments you can't beat WeatherShield HD.
