Stormforce PLUS vs Car Cover Over Net

Many companies have now copied our idea of using an Over Net with a car cover. Having sold it for many, many years we know its limitations and why you should always go for a PLUS upgrade over a net unless you are trailering that car and using it to keep the cover in place.

Here are some reasons why you wouldn't use a Car Cover Over Net.

a) The Wrong Kind of Net.
A Net that is glued and not looped will eventually fail.  Every "join" point on the net also becomes a friction point.  Too many small loops means the cover is going to ruin your car cover quickly.  Slightly bigger "holes" are better than lots of small ones.

b) Warranty
Many Car Cover manufacturers will invalidate any warranty on that cover if its been used with an over net. ( Worth Checking ).....  Why?  because it will move in the wind and over time remove / shred the outer layer of any multilayered cover as it puts pressure on the outer surface as it moves.

c) Where is it made?
Our nets are made in Scotland, by one of the countries oldest, traditional net makers, establshed in the 1800s, as opposed to india or china where the quality just isn't the same.

d) Price
Its cheaper to upgrade your cover to a PLUS version, and still maintain the full warranty on the car cover, that use a more expensive Net that won't.

e) Adjustable bungee cord.
Every Net we sell comes with a minimum of 10 Meters worth of 1cm thick bungee cord.  This can be adjusted through the net at the best point that suits you and adjusted to fit.
