SpecialtyFabricsReview.com | January 4, 2013
Transhield, Inc. has been awarded a contract to supply 120 protective covers for MaxxPro Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles. The covers were purchased by U.S. Army Strategic Logistics Activity Charleston (ASLAC) to maintain readiness for MRAPs being placed into prepositioned stocks. The covers will replace vinyl and canvas tarps in order to provide better protection from corrosion, dust, wind, rain, snow and UV rays.
Transhield has received two contracts in the past six months to supply MRAP covers to the U.S. Military. In addition to this order, the U.S. Marine Corps will be using them to protect their entire fleet of MRAPs.
All Transhield’s protective covers are tested using ASTM standards for breathability, ultraviolet blockage, tensile strength and yield strength.
