CoverMates™ Select Plus Car Covers
Select Plus incorporates one of the thickest and softest 4-layer materials in the industry, providing superior protection against weather, dings and heat.
Designed exclusively by The Cover Store, our CoverMates™ Select Plus fabric is probably the thickest, most protective composite nonwoven available. The total weight of our 4-ply material is over 200 grams, much better than the typical 140-160 gram weight found in the marketplace. That additional 40% thickness has several advantages. First is the ability to act as sunblock for the delicate finish of your vehicle as well as the interior. We've all seen the faded roof, trunk and hood areas of cars, trucks and SUVs that have been exposed to year after year of intense sun. Our Select Plus material will keep that from happening and will also keep the interior of your vehicle cooler by up to 30 degrees!
Another advantage of a heavier cover is the ability to stay on your vehicle. Select Plus is especially suited for situations where your vehicle will be stored outside in the elements for an extended period of time. With Select Plus, you also won't have to worry about those little run-ins your vehicle may have with falling debris from trees, the next door neighbor's cat, scratches or dings from a child's bicycle, etc. There's definitely enough padding in this cover to protect against many common outdoor situations!
Technically, Select Plus is a soft, 4-layer non-woven composite. The top two protective layers act as a barrier to the outside and the third layer is a micro porous film that keeps moisture out but still allows vapor from generated heat and condensation to escape. The inner layer, which comes into contact with your car, is a soft polypropylene that protects the vehicle's finish.
CoverMates™ Select Plus vehicle covers are available in ourStock covers are popular with consumers because they fit well and offer many of the same performance features found in more expensive custom made covers. All CoverMates™ Select Plus car, truck and SUV covers carry a 3-year factory warranty plus an additional for a total warranty period of 5 years.
Caring for your CoverMates™ Select Plus Car Cover
It's important to clean and maintain your Select Plus car cover for optimal performance. By cleaning your cover, you'll prevent "fogging" on your vehicle's windows.
For machine washing, insert the cover in the washer and add ¼ cup laundry detergent into washer after it's filled with warm water. Rinse the cover twice to be sure all detergent is removed. Allow cover to air dry before placing back on vehicle or storing.
To keep your cover looking and performing its best, we suggest following these cleaning tips:
- Always remove the washer's agitator before washing your Select Plus car cover
- Do not use a fabric softener on a Select Plus car cover
- Air dry only
A Select Plus car cover can be hand-washed while it's on your vehicle. Mix an ounce of mild dishwashing liquid per quart of warm water. Spray or sponge soapy water onto cover and clean with sponge or soft bristle brush. Rinse with plain water until no suds are evident and allow to air dry. Store away once completely dry.
Important Note: No cover is completely waterproof.
Car covers are designed with various levels of water-resistance while still being breathable to provide a maximum amount of protection for your vehicle. If your vehicle is exposed to harsh elements such as constant moisture or snow, or is covered outside for long periods at a time, trapped moisture can occur which can sometimes cause the painted surface to appear cloudy.
We recommend that you remove your cover periodically to check for any evidence of moisture. If moisture is present, we suggest allowing the surface of your vehicle to completely dry before putting your cover back on or storing away.
