What does the material look like?
This video overview will give you a better idea of the look and feel of the material and it will help you choose the material that is right for you.
What is the warranty?
Our vinyl covers have a 5 year manufacturer’s warranty and the 600D has a 2 year manufacturer’s warranty.
What is the most common material?
90% of the covers ALCO sells are made out of the 18oz Vinyl. While both materials are very strong and have the same appearance most customers choose the thicker material.
What’s recommended to hold the grommets?
You can use a rope or cord weaved through the grommets.
Which material should I choose?
If you are trying to choose between the 18oz and 12oz vinyl material please choose based on your environment. For regular weather conditions the 12oz vinyl is a great material at a slightly less expensive price. If you are going to experience heavy weather conditions such as heavy snow, heavy rain, and lots of wind then please choose the 18oz vinyl material. 90% of all the industrial covers ALCO provides are made out of the 18oz Vinyl. The 600D material is great for a light weight cover that is less expensive and is also ideal for indoor applications.
Are they easy to clean?
Yes. The vinyl is easy to wipe as it is a slick material making it easy to clean unlike other polyester covers which are similar to canvas. Canvas harbors mold and stains that are very hard to wipe off unlike the ALCO Vinyl custom furniture covers which are slick.
How strong are the furniture covers?
18oz vinyl is actually what is used on soft sided semi trailer trucks that you see on the highway, so you know that it is an extremely durable and long-lasting material. We make our covers out of 12 and 18 oz vinyl, which is slightly thinner so that it is more flexible and not so stiff. Same material, just a thinner weight. I hope this information helps you in making a decision about purchasing our covers.
Does the cover prevent moisture?
Yes. Our covers have an air pocket to prevent liquid condensation that can build up mold. These pockets, as shown in the image, allow some air to get inside the cover to help prevent moisture buildup.
