    1 - Cover Fabric  Fairborn offers fabrics in a wide range of colors and performance levels. A valued consideration is Dynalon, one of our superior performance materials. Dynalon’s extraordinary life expectancy is attributed in part to it’s excellent tear and abrasion resistance properties.

     2 - Foam  Fairborn developed a polyurethane foam to properly compress, while conforming to the irregularities of the vehicle body. Superior recovery characteristics ensure the foam’s return to it’s original shape and size.

     3 - Wood Frame  The frame is select dimensional lumber of the highest grade, pressure treated and kiln dried before and after treating. (A formed steel frame is optional.)

     4 - Chemical Weld  The foam is chemically bonded to the entire contact area of the frame to ensure maximum structural integrity.

     5 - Air Exhaust  Each pad is equipped with properly sized outlets to allow for free air escape during compression while prohibiting moisture infiltration.

     6 - Guide Stripe  Each side pad includes highly visible yellow stripes to facilitate accurate truck positioning. Fairborn developed a superior “Urethane Finish” to ensure greater stripe durability while maintaining a clean appearance.

     7 - Tension Straps  The head curtain is held taut by elastic straps at each end to ensure it will conform to the top of the vehicle body.

     8 - Support Stays  Scotchply™* stays, supported at each end, maintain a proper head curtain slope to provide for adequate drainage, while guaranteeing the curtain a neat appearance.

    9 - Cross Member  The head curtain is supported by a structural rigid tubing held in place by a continuous fabric sleeve incorporated into the top, front edge of the curtain.

    10 - Thread  All stitching is performed by professional seamstresses utilizing bonded, high tensile, multi-cord polyester thread. The sewn construction provides for lockstitch, proper tension, and backtack sewing techniques throughout.
