SES Satellite domes required covers and we were happy to help. 

For the last few months we have been working with SES to support with their protection requirements for a number of cruise ship network domes.

These 4m domes were getting damaged in transit and SES's previous solution was not only costly, ineffective but also not sustainable with ever wrap thrown away after use.

Click to read Towing cover design update
Towing cover design update

Since the middle of 2021 our towing range has undergone modifications, including the removal of the stretch fabric at the sides of the cover, visual style updates and the straps at the top, these have been removed and altered following consumer feedback. The stretch fabric has been removed to increase longevity of the cover. We had received feedback of the fabric laddering or ripping at the corners over time. The safety straps on the top of the cover were deemed redundant, equally customers had fed back that they flapped whilst travelling and were often over tightened tearing the cover. These alteration have then impacted on the visual of the cover.

The changes in look and styling lines have been done for several reasons. The removal of the stretchy fabric has altered the functional nature of the seams and zips throughout the cover. The stretch fabric allowed for zips on a curve which were more decorative however they are now required structurally to support the overall fit of the cover. Curved zips are challenging from a manufacturing point of view and don’t offer the same strength as horizontally sewn zips. This, in combination with the location of the handles and locker box will dictate the styling and functional lines we follow on the cover. The top securing straps are no longer required on covers that don’t have the stretch sides. When the stretch fabric was used there was always an element of tolerance in the fabric that could then be compensated for with the top tensioning strap if required. Once the stretch sides had been removed and the cover made in a non-stretch fabric, the cover is created like a second skin so there is no need for customers to tension the top.

Where to start….. Hi, I’m Holly, I’m officially the Finance & Customer Services Manager at Specialised Covers.

I’ve been convinced to do my bit second, this is because this month marks my 3 year anniversary with the business, when my fellow managers missed my 1 year anniversary & then my 2 year anniversary there were repercussions that lasted to this day (I complain & remind them of it at any given opportunity), so when they suggested I do this as a kind of commemoration I of course leapt at the chance.

3ish years ago I was working as a Self Employed Financial Consultant, I’d been doing this for a few years and was starting to get a bit frustrated.

Tow Pro + and Tow Pro Elite front designs

Every Tow pro + and Elite we make is tailored to your caravan, that means that the covers will look different from each other depending on the make.

Coachman caravans often have two locker boxes separated on the front creating a divide down the centre, Bailey caravans have no front locker at all and Swift lockers run around the outer edge of the front section. All these design differences create different front towing covers. The visual element of the towing cover is lead by the shape of the caravan. The location of the grab handles and that relationship between the window and the locker is dealt with in a number of different ways. If the handles follow the styling lines of the other openings, we have no choice but to build that into the same opening. This will be done with double ended zips so that section can be accessed independently. If the handles are horizontal then they will require a completely separate access point. This is all driven by the caravan shape.

What we can confirm is that you will have all the elements of the cover highlighted on each product, window, locker box and grab handle access. If you are unsure please call our team who will try highlight the closest styling to how yours would be. We try to represent as many designs as possible online but please note the aesthetic of the cover will be determined by your caravan.
