The 365 Series Cover is designed to meet the most demanding equipment coverage needs including 24/7, 365 outside exposure. The 365 is a multi layered/dual material design that incorporates our original Solar Cover material as an inner radiant barrier coupled to an outer cover made of high count, acrylic coated woven polyester. This combination of materials produces an effective cover system capable of providing years of protection, even when used outside 24/7, 365. In fact, we warranty the 365 Covers to provide this level of protection.
The inner liner radiant barrier provides radiant heat protection, effectively protecting your equipment from radiant heat build up. Additionally, as a second inner liner it provides additional protection from water penetration.
The outer polyester cover is the highest quality acrylic coated weave. This American made material offers exceptional resistance to mildew and UV as well as superior strength and abrasion resistance. Less than 1% shrinkage or stretch assures continuous proper fit. The water resistant capabilities of this material are outstanding...tested and shown to not allow moisture penetration from a spray test at 40 PSI, 1/2 inch concentrated stream. The manufacturer exterior exposure rating for this material is 5 years.
A year of strenuous testing in some of the harshest outside environments, including the desert southwest, Florida Keys, Colorado @ 8000 feet and the Texas Hill country has proven the 365 Series to be capable of handling all types of weather on a continuous 24/7, 365 basis.
Currently available in three sizes, more sizes available soon.
The Telegizmo covers are lightweight and longer lasting than any telescope cover on the market today. Basically, we don't recommend long term 365 exposure because most of the time this will cause the material to degrade at approximately 4-6 months. If used like most customers...2-3 days to 2-3 weeks at a time, the covers will last for years. (The TGD1 weighs 9 oz). Not just a plastic bag, but multiplayer insulator. The heat reflective performance of the cover is like Mylar but with a material strength equal to a multi-layer light weight tarp. The material was originally developed for NASA as an insulator in spacecraft. It is very strong, light, tear and puncture resistant and is highly superior to Mylar in durability. Most Telegizmo covers open on the end. However the refractor covers open on the side. All have a sown in drawstrap to close the open end.
• Water proof
• Highly reflective
• Greatly reducing scope temperature on scopes left outside in sunlight.
• They can be securely fastened to your scope with the built in draw string.
• The TeleGizmos material is unaffected by high wind.
• Highly tear and puncture resistant.
• Safe to minus 200 F
Our material has extreme temperature tolerance; they stay malleable in temps well below freezing and are unaffected by summer sun and heat. We also can produce custom sized covers for almost any type of application including equipment tables, laptops, any type of accessory and more. Let us know what you need and we will work with you to produce it.
