Below are a selection of the covers we make.  They can be made from a choice of fabrics in a number of different colours and we recommend either acrylic canvas or PVC, dependent on the intended usage and customers preference.  We can supply other materials on request or by recommendation, such as Weathermax or Mohairand these can be sewn with a lifetime thread, such as Tenara, however these will attract a premium over standard pricing.  Prices on request.

Front covers

We make our own Cratch boards in-house.These can be supplied in single or double pane styles.

We offer two styles of tubular frames. One replicates a traditional cratch board style and the other offers a fold down style.  Either offers the convenience of a zipped front panel to enable easy access to the gas locker or front bollard.

Options for covers include privacy blinds and inner mesh for keeping most bugs out. You can also opt for no windows at all.

Front tonneau also available with a window panel.
