The Membrane lightweight structures for cars may seem to many an expense for pleasure rather than necessity.
However, there are various effects on vehicles that are caused by the Sun’s rays and that can be well prevented, thus avoiding repair costs.
The greatest damage the sun can do to a vehicle is in the paint and interiors.
The steering wheel corrodes and the upholstery changes color due to the constant exposure of the car to the sun’s rays.
Apart from the interiors, the engines are also affected by the sun and high temperatures, as they are in danger of overheating.
But there is no doubt that vehicle paint is the most affected by sunlight. Direct exposure to cars from the sun weakens the shine of the paint.
The degradation of the paint in cars by UV rays is progressive, so that over time the varnish loses its resistance and causes damage to the paint.
Still, for many, leaving the car windows partially open parked in the sun is more than enough.
However, they do not know that only a difference of 2ºC is generated compared to bringing the windows closed completely.
As an interesting fact, the interiors of a car can reach temperatures of 80 º C if they are not protected by covers. Damage to the skin begins to occur when the temperature exceeds 45 ºC.
Under this scenario, the Membrane lightweight structures for cars not only protect the vehicle, but also the driver.
Parking under a tree seems at first glance a simple option to cover the car from the sun, but there is a risk of not covering it completely and that it is also dirtied by birds or by the sap of the tree itself.
For these reasons, more and more companies and car owners are choosing to invest in the Membrane lightweight structures for cars, in order to protect their automotive assets longer.
At Hyparch we design taut structures and special covers to protect fleets of company cars or even private vehicles. We invite you to visit our gallery.
