Atmospheric Agents and Car Bodywork

Atmospheric Agents and Car Bodywork

Protecting your vehicle from atmospheric agents becomes a top priority if you have already experienced damage from hail, ice or snow. Your vehicle is too valuable to leave it exposed to these elements which can cause damage. This is especially important if you don’t have a garage, carport, or another covered area that can protect your vehicle.

The solution is to buy a car cover made to protect your vehicle in all types of weather conditions. The best car cover resists hail, snow and ice to offer complete protection that will withstand even the harshest storms and leave the body intact. To find a good car cover, you will obviously need to do a little research. Since there are so many to choose from, it can be difficult to narrow it down but we are here to help you find a good hail cover.

What is a Hail Cover?

A hail cover also called a car hail protection, is a system designed to limit damage from hail. The cover can be placed over the windshield, hood and other exterior components of your car. Once in place, the cover protects your car from hail that could otherwise cause dents and other damage to the vehicle.

The chassis is often considered a part of the car you don’t need to pay particular attention to. Not many people know what it is and even fewer people care about it.

Types of Hail Cover

There are four types of car covers for hail protection you can buy at Withcar:

1. Umbrella tent

A car sunshade awning is usually constructed of fibreglass. Some tents are made to withstand winds of up to 30 mph. They are also easy to install and remove, and the more advanced ones are equipped with anti-theft technology.

Car umbrella awnings are popular hail protection covers as they are portable and can be installed virtually anywhere your vehicle is parked. However, a car sunshade awning will not cover the entire car. So, if you get this type of hail cover, you may want to pair it with another car protector.

2. Custom car cover

You can purchase a tailor-made car cover that adapts to the shape of your vehicle. The cover uses rubber bands to ensure it stays in place during a hailstorm. And you can pack up this sort of blanket and take it with you wherever you go.

Most bespoke hail covers are made with multiple layers of strong and durable fabric. However, not all fitted car covers are designed to prevent hail damage. In fact, many covers only offer protection from UV rays and dirt.

3. Portable carport

A weatherproof portable carport offers incredible durability compared to other hail cover options. The carport can protect your car during light to medium hailstorms. Also, as a typical carport weighs around 40kg, it’s unlikely to fly away in a storm. Portable carports offer exceptional hail protection but are significantly more expensive than other car hail protection devices. They are the ideal solutions for those who own a home without a parking space and want to protect their car from frequent hail and other adverse weather conditions.

4. Inflatable car cover

With an inflatable hail cover, you can keep your vehicle as safe as it is in a bubble. The cover uses fans to keep the air moving and produces a bubble that surrounds your car. As long as the cover fans are running, your car will be protected from hail damage. Inflatable car covers tend to work well in light to heavy hailstorms. Some of these covers are sold with parts and labour warranties. Some can even function as a standard car cover when not inflated.

Regardless of the type you choose, a good hail cover will be able to keep the windows and bodywork of your car in good health for a long time, without you having to worry about putting it away from home or when you are travelling. Obviously, you will have to consider the type of coverage not only based on cost and type but also based on the type of car you drive: it is very different to choose coverage for a small car compared to a truck, of course!
