Trisoft Aircraft Covers Latest News & Press Release
Trisoft Aircraft Covers is the leading manufacturer of aviation protection covers. Our protection covers are reviewed and rated as the best by several defense analysts.
Aviation maintenance facilities, bases that store planes, flight business operators (FBO’s) hangars, and military establishments across the world use our foam safety covers for gear doors, trailing edges, wing tips, prop tips, engine pylons, and delta fins.
Accidents at hangars are common. Protect them with foam covers.
Recently, Trisoft Aircraft Covers developed custom sized, long-lasting protective cover kits for the Embraer Phenom 100, 300, and Legacy 600. It also extended its product range for Gulfstream and large-cabin models. The news was picked up by AviationPros, a leading aviation resource website.
To Protect Horizontal Systems, Trisoft Covers introduced foam edge covers to cover wings. They also act as horizontal stabilizers, protecting them from dropped tools, flashlights, spray cans, and other hazards that can fall onto thin metal and painted surfaces.
Our complete kit, to offer protection for General Dynamics Corporation (GDC) Fighting Falcon F-16 comes in a stealthy black and red color combination. Trisoft provides protective covers for all military aircraft worldwide, including F-16s. Our patented crosslink foam covers offer protection for trailing edges, wing tips, prop tips, antenna and more.
Trisoft Aircraft Covers, a favorite at big maintenance facilities and with US and foreign militaries, has begun expansion into the owner, corporate, and smaller-facility market, including MRO and FBO facilities.
Trisoft covers protect both the aircraft (for example, trailing edges, gear doors) and employees (prop tips, antennae), with a unique foam cover that stays in place, fits well, and (unlike much of the competition or home-brew solutions) is both fuel and UV resistant.
Joe Garland, President and founder, saw the need for both kinds of protection when he ran an aircraft-washing business. “We saw aircraft damaged by very light contact with maintenance stands and ladders; and we were always aware of the injury potential posed by the sharp edges that are all over high-performance aircraft. Cheap and makeshift covers break down in sunlight; they dissolve in fuel; and sometimes they actually stick to the paint, causing as much damage as they prevent.”
The patented Trisoft covers are fuel and UV-resistant, and are die- and waterjet-cut from foam in a high-visibility red color that vividly contrasts with most aircraft. Certain covers are furnished with “Remove Before Flight” tags. They protect people and capital during manufacturing, maintenance, cleaning, preflight, ground handling; or any time the aircraft is near people or equipment.
Trisoft covers last for years and fit multiple aircraft; a small assortment will protect many different aircraft. Trisoft triangular covers and bumpers (available in 72” lengths to protect long and short trailing edges, gear doors, antennae, or wing and propeller tips, easily cut to length) are generally shipped immediately, from stock. Additional uses can include things like door edges and openings – or tail rotor blades – anywhere personnel or aircraft protection is an issue.
Building on the success of its foam edge covers, Trisoft Covers Inc. has introduced a companion product. Trisoft Panels interlock to cover wings and horizontal stabilizers, protecting them from dropped tools, flashlights, spray cans, and all the other hazards that can fall onto thin metal and painted surfaces.
The XLPE foam is resistant to sunlight, heat, and cold; and its closed-cell structure is chemical resistant and will not absorb water. Sized in two foot squares and packed four to a case, the squares have a natural resistance to sliding on the surface.
Joe Garland, President of Trisoft, said the pads are a natural extension of the product line. “I want to help MRO facilities protect both their employees and their customers’ aircraft. The foam edge covers protect those parts and prevent worker injuries; the new pads go a step farther in protecting large areas of the aircraft where the work is being done.”
And the patented-design edge covers? Though wear and continued fit are always problems with makeshift covers, Trisoft’s eye-catching foam, protects people and trailing edges, flaps and ailerons, gear doors, and prop tips; and it is durable while retaining its shape. Jake Schwager, the Quality Assurance Manager at the Milwaukee Citation Service Center, says, “I think the Trisoft Covers are the best because of the durability and high visibility. We have been using them for two years and they show no real signs of wear.”
Mr. Martin Sisk, Service Manager for Cutter Aviation Dallas-McKinney, says, “Trisoft covers work well for our needs, and best of all, they stay on throughout the entire maintenance job until we are ready to remove them. They are great added protection for our customer aircraft and add an extra level of safety for our technicians. Our customers certainly appreciate their use while we service their aircraft as well – it’s an extra step to show we care -- and Trisoft makes it easy.”
A case of (4) Trisoft Interlocking Pads is priced at $76.95.
