Transhield is the leading provider of protective cover solutions to commercial, industrial and military markets. Proven and effective on a wide variety of military vehicles and equipment, we provide superb solutions for howitzers, tanks, MRAPs, LAVs, bradley fighting vehicles, HMMWVs, and other expensive and difficult to maintain items.
Our solutions span the complete continuum of desired protection, from day-to-day use to long-term storage. Using patented technologies that are continuously improving, they provide users with effective and affordable solutions for equipment protection in support of the warfighter in today's environment of declining budgets and manpower.
Our covers are durable, waterproof, breathable, lightweight, easy to install and, most importantly, affordable. Our unique technologies protect from the ravages of environmental factors such as UV rays, sand, dust, rain, snow, humidity and condensation, and result in corrosion reductions of 85% - 95%.
Vinyl and canvas tarps used to be the standard when attempting to protect military vehicles and equipment. Though they were lightweight and may have kept some rain or snow away from the vehicles, overall they proved to not be very durable and trapped moisture underneath them. This caused a 'green house effect' and exacerbated the corrosion and degradation problem.
The subsequent iteration of military protective covers was a definite movement in the right direction. They were reusable, more durable and provided breathability and anti-corrosion capability through the use of vapour corrosion inhibitors (VCIs). However, in most cases they proved to be very heavy, difficult to install, and often retained an excessive amount of moisture, degrading their effectiveness and further adding to the difficulty in handling.
Transhield provides the next or latest generation in military protective covers. They combine the lightweight, ease of use characteristics of classic vinyl and tarp covers, with the durability, breathability, and corrosion reduction capabilities of VCI products.
Transhield provides three patented technologies to the military that span the continuum of desired protection from extremely long-term storage to the harsh environments found at sea, in excessively humid tropical areas, or in sun drenched, windswept, arid desert climes:
Transhield has been providing products to the US military since 2001. Focusing primarily on the USMC and the US Army ground based equipment market, Transhield quickly became known as the only company that could provide anti-corrosion protective covers that were custom fit, lightweight, and easy to install.
Transhield's military presence has grown rapidly, to the point where we have been chosen as the 'preferred' cover by the USMC Corrosion Protection and Control Program Office (CPAC). Over the last four years we have delivered over 20,000 custom fit anti-corrosion covers to the USMC and US Army. We have also provided covers for US Navy MPF shipping.
Transhield protective covers can be purchased through our GSA Schedule GS-02F-0103R. We also have an expanding repertoire of NSNs which allow for easier procurement through GSA. For up to date info on our NSNs please contact us or visit our website. We are continuously undertaking new designs as our numerous customers identify more equipment that can benefit from the advantages of Transhield technology.
