Winter protection frame
Our winter protection frame rests on the boat’s railings and rope mounts. Made of Excel reinforced plastic, it is durable but light, and easily self-attached.
The frame consists of a brush pipe splitting into several parts as well as adjustable telescopic side supports. Installation instructions which show the mounting locations always accompany the frame. If any of the winter protection frame pipes or mounts are lost, for example, you can order them from us as spare parts. In connection with replacing a boat, it is also easy to modify the frame if required to make it suitable for another boat model.
The winter protection frame is delivered in a convenient storage bag – so you can store the minimal-space frame package in a storeroom, for instance.
Our white cover, which reflects the rays of the sun, is UV-protected. The fabric is made as a sandwich structure: i.e. several materials are attached to each other on top of each other. This way the fabric is strong, firm, does not stretch, and withstands a wide variety of conditions.
The fabric lining is softer, so it does not cause wear to the paint, and the moisture problem that otherwise frequently forms in the interior is reduced. The exterior is slippery so that snow and ice do not easily stick to it. The materials used do not develop mould, nor do they act as a breeding ground for spores, etc. The special features of the cover are maintained with the same strength even when wet.
Even large covers are easy to spread on top of the winter protection frame, because the fabric is light. The gross weight of the fabric is 240 g/m2.
The winter covers are always designed on a model-specific basis and are sewn to match the requirements of your boat. The triangular pieces sewn to follow the shape of the boat stern ensure that the cover goes well into place. The edges of the cover are surrounded by grommets which you can attach with the cover cord or rope, and you can firmly lace the cover edges to each other in the front and back sections of the boat. However, do remember to leave an opening for airing about 10 cm in width both in front and in back, so that the air is ventilated well under the winter cover.
Our winter cover catalogue is supplemented continuously, so we may already have a ready winter cover pattern available for your boat model – even if it is not yet presented in our pattern list. The VA winter cover system is easy to plan for your individual needs, even if we haven’t previously designed covers for the boat model concerned.
