Protective Covers for Locomotives
Product Announcement from Transhield, Inc.
Custom fit locomotive covers from Transhield, Inc. offer storage protection. Train-shield™ by Transhield covers protect against graffiti and vandalism, corrosion, mold and paint damage during storage. The covers are easy to install and the added ability to heat-shrink the cover allows for a tight fit. Train-shield covers have been field tested and developed in conjunction with specific requirements of major rail carriers. These covers also reduce maintenance costs when returning equipment to full service.
Custom fit covers for railroad side houses are also available, providing protection against road salt and other damager during transportation and storage for signal control buildings, traction power enclosures and more.
Transhield covers are made from Shrinkable Fabric™ and consist of three layers: an outer layer that is UV-resistant and anti-condensation, a middle adhesive layer and a soft inner layer. These covers feature the patented Adhesive Additive Delivery - Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor (AAD-VCI) system which provides 100% protection from corrosion during transportation and storage.
