Specialised Covers made an incredible custom-made cover for a Porsche Taycan with the Proliner!
Specialised Covers, from Shipley, United Kingdom, is a company with more than 35 years of experience in providing protective covers for cars, caravans, and motorcycles. Since 1981 they have been creating tailored covers for some of the world’s rarest vehicles and they have built an inventory of measurements. They decided to go for the Proliner Canvas package and have been working on many projects. Here you can read their review after having used the Proliner on a very special project; measuring a custom-made cover for a Porsche Taycan:
“At Specialised Covers, we are always looking to improve ourselves, systems, and products for our customers and the investment in equipment and individuals is a vital part of the growth at Specialised.
Being open to new technologies, fabrics and sustainable options allows us to stay competitive and forward-thinking in the protection space.
Our most recent investment was a piece of equipment called Proliner which allows us to create a 3D model from any object by directly inputting the points in the system. This in turn creates a working 3D model of the item which we then use to design and manufacture accurate form-fitting covers.
This piece of equipment required both a large financial and time investment, allowing the team to learn through trial and error as to the best way to utilize this new design tool. Having had it for nearly a year now we are using it on ever more complex projects, supporting the design team from traditional cloth methods to a more digital approach and in turn utilizing our multiple CNC machines we have on-site.
This investment in new technology we hope enables customers to see the scope of what we are able to accomplish and that we welcome the challenging projects no one else can do. Our USP is that we can design, sample, and manufacture in our own UK factory unique items, even if the client wants 1 or 1000 we have the capacity and the skill set to support it.”
