Kennon Covers are made from superior fabrics, right down to the thread.
Here are some of the materials we use.

Kennon WeatherMax

A unique engineered polymer material designed specifically for constant outdoor use.  It is extremely UV resistant and extremely resistant to fading and color loss.  This fabric is breathable, abrasion resistant and eliminates sagging.

Kennon Silver WeatherMax

Kennon's Anti-Grit Lining

Kennon's Anti-GritKennon introduced a micro-fiber lining in the early 1990's after it was reported that fuzzy linings were the apparent cause of several millions of dollars of damage to military aircraft involved in Desert Storm.

Fine sand collects in fuzzy material and scratches the transparency system.

Now we've significantly improved the lining to include a static-disapating feature. Static charged acrylic windows attract dust and dust scratches. Kennon's new Anti-Grit lining helps reduce static and further helps prevent scratching.

 

Why Does Stitching Fail?

Tenara Thread

 

Tenar Thread Break

Today's fabrics last 5 to 10 years. Why not have seams that last at least as long as the fabric?

 

Tenara Thread FailureAircraft Covers are exposed to ultraviolet (UV) radiation, cleaning agents, pollution, saltwater, air, rain and snow. While these elements affect both fabric and seam thread, the thread usually fails first.

Traditionally, polyester thread has been used, requiring re-stitching every few years.

GORE TENARA® Sewing Thread... for seams that last a fabric's lifetime.

Sewing threads were exposed to the elements in the Arizona, USA desert over three (3) years. While other threads lost over one half of their strength, GORE TENARA® thread maintained 100% of its strength.

W.L. Gore & Associates even back up their thread with a warranty, so the thread on your cover should last as long as the fabric does.
