The "big brother" to WeatherShield ® HP we've designed this fabric for intense sun environments and extended outdoor storage in other harsh climates. WeatherShield ® HD not only provides UV opacity, it repels waters, 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 (makers of Sunbrella ®) using solution-dyed UV resistant polyester fibers. The fabric is 40% heavier than regular WeatherShield ® HP, using 300 denier construction to provide more than double the tear and tensile strength.
This superior base fabric is then finished with the world-wide patented EPIC by Nextec ® encapsulation process...the same high performance finish used on our popular WeatherShield ® HP fabric. Using proprietary processes a specially formulated finish is placed inside the fabric to bond to each individual thread and fill the valleys between the woven fibers (see close-up at left). These special formulas have amazing elasticity to block moisture and dirt, while still maintaining the breathability of the fabric.
Who needs WeatherShield HD? People who live in intense sun climates and along the coast will benefit most from this durable fabric, as well as RV owners looking for the best cover for long-term storage. It's not as compact as regular WeatherShield HP, and the heavier denier fibers aren't as silky-smooth, but for maximum protection in the harshest environments you can't beat WeatherShield HD.BOTTOM LINE - WeatherShield HD is fade resistant, sheds moisture, stops durt, dust and bird droppings and is very water resistant and breathable in a heavier weight for long-term storage.
Limited Warranty - Five (5) years from date of purchase to the original purchaser. Warranty coverage protects against defects in material and workmanship, as well as the fabric becoming unserviceable during normal use. After factory inspection, we will repair or replace the cover or specific panels judged to be unusable. Warranty does not cover fading, which occurs naturally on all products used outdoors. This fabric is not waterproof - it is breathable to allow moisture, condensation and heat to escape from under the fabric.
