All About Dash Covers: Sun Damage Protection and More

October 19th, 2017 by Street Customz

The sun drives all of the life processes, yet it can also wreak havoc if we don’t take certain precaution measures. Getting too much sun can harm your skin, and materials sustain damage as well. On a hot summer day, your car’s interior temperature reaches 145 degrees Fahrenheit, while the exterior surface of a car left outside in direct sunlight is over 195 degrees Fahrenheit. The sun’s UV rays can cause severe paint damage – years of sun exposure creates microscopic pores, resulting in cracks and discoloration.

The sun can literary bleach your interior. The dashboard is the first area to suffer from the damaging effects of sunlight and heat. Without protection, it can get faded rather quickly and can even crack or peel back. Back in the days, people who lived in a hot climate used to protect this area with towels and rags. Today you have a variety of dash covers to choose from. And here are some of the good reasons why it is a sound investment:

All-round protection

It is not only heat and sun damage that dashboard covers shield your dash from. Plastic and vinyl surfaces are easy to scratch, and a dash mat will save you from extra expenses on repairing a damaged surface or replacing the whole panel. It will preserve your dashboard in pristine condition, increasing a resale or trade-in value when the time comes to buy a newer car. A dash cover will also prevent dust and dirt buildup.

Offering everything from suede mats that give your interior a rich look and feel to designer finishes that create a unique appearance, the market will make you spoilt for choice.
