PROTECTIVE COVERS / PROTECTIVE HOODS OF THE HIGHEST QUALITY
There are many types of protective covers. With us, you are part of the premium league. Here at CAPA we let the idea guide us during the production process of our products, that it is not enough to simply sew a suitable material into a hood. Others could do that, too! Paramount of our work on all our CAPA protective covers is the easy handling, even for larger ones, with a length of 8 m and a height of more than 3m. We call this: the CAPA principle. It enables 2 people to completely cover a vehicle with a CAPA protective hood of more than 60 m² in size within a few minutes, with the aid of just two broomsticks and no additional tools. For this purpose we have attached durable pockets and draw ropes on the inside of the cover and invisible from the outside. Due to the success of the CAPA principle we have– also upon our customers’ request – continuously developed new products for the European market in the course of the last 10 years. As the first company we have developed CAPA protective covers for horse trailers and carriages, for mobile homes, caravans and box vans, VW busses and miscellaneous small transporters and are the only manufacturer of all-weather protective covers for glider plane trailers and vintage tractors worldwide.
Naturally our products do not only distinguish themselves by means of a wide range of different colors, but also through some refinements, which are not immediately visible at first glance. We have, for example, added theft protection in addition to customary reinforcements, fitted the lashing straps beneath the vehicles in handy pockets and developed a new fasting system on the rear side, which permits CAPA to fit tightly like a second skin.
We put particular emphasis on the selection of the materials used. As the quality of commercially available nonwoven fabrics is not good enough for us, we have developed a highly versatile material, allocated by us under the name of CAPAtex®. CAPAtex® consists of a particularly tightly taffeta-lined and thus waterproof, yet at the same surface-gentle PP-fleece, which is primarily characterized by its excellent breathability and good UV protection, while at the same time maintaining a low weight. And while we have constructed the side parts of our protective covers as single layers, for reasons of weight and diffusion we use trilaminate in the area of the roof, made from surface and sub-layer CAPAtex®, with a PE film between them.
For the particularly frequent application of our protective covers for horse trailers we furthermore offer a protective hood made from a kind of woven polyester, manufactured in the ripstop technique (CAPA DELUXE). This material is extremely tear-resistant, however barely breathable and thus unsuitable for other applications.
Our products have already won several innovation prizes; most recently the prize “Product of the year 2014” was awarded for the CAPA for horse trailers .
