PLANOFIL® is ultra-lightweight. The tarpaulin fabric weighs only 190 g/m2, making it the lightest of its kind on the market. The low weight makes it easy to handle (for quick covering and uncovering with minimal effort), plus a PLANOFIL® tarpaulin can be folded away compactly for space-saving storage. Both of these properties are a real boon when it comes to loading boats.
Durability and resistance
Reliable protection for objects kept outdoors, such as cars, furniture and cargo, begins and ends with functional properties that make the cover material resistant to environmental influences, decay and other harmful elements. The ultra hard-wearing PLANOFIL® is UV-resistant (high UPF 50+, tested to DIN EN 13758 standard), weather-resistant (from -40 to +80 °C), waterproof, seawater-resistant, water-repellent (tested in accordance with Bundesmann DIN EN 29865) and dirt-repellent. It is also specially treated to prevent mould from forming.
Dirt, including bird droppings (every boat owner's greatest fear), is no match for PLANOFIL®. The special non-stick, water-repellent finish on the tarpaulin material makes it particularly resilient against dirt. Even stubborn dirt struggles to stick to the surface of the tarpaulin; instead, it is usually washed away the next time it rains.
