One of the first things you notice when you get into your vehicle is your dash. So it goes without saying that you want it to look good. Keeping your dashboard dust and grime free is a great start and pretty easy to do, wipe it down with a cleaner and keep a protectant on it. But your dash is subjected to other elements that might not be so kind to it. If you park your car outside, the sun’s harsh UV rays beat onto your dash all the time. Even if you have covered parking, your car spends plenty of time outside. The UV rays from the sun will fade your car’s dash and the heat from the sun may eventually lead to cracking.
How Dashboard Covers Protect Your Car
How can you prevent these things from happening and keep your car looking nice? An easy and affordable way is to invest in a dashboard protector. These liners are tailored to fit your car or truck with cutouts for vents and the controls. They fit tight on your dash and ensure 100% coverage and protection. As mentioned, a dashboard liner will protect the dash of your truck from cracking or sun bleaching. It will also protect it from accidental spills while eating or drinking in your vehicle. Not only good for protecting your dash, a cover also helps to reduce glare from the sun, increasing your visibility on the road and because it blocks UV rays, you might find your truck's interior temperature is lower. You’ve invested a lot in your truck, now protect that investment and protect its resale value by investing in a dashboard liner.
Truck dashboard covers come in a variety of materials. You can pick different colors and materials to fit your needs and style preferences. Most covers are a dashboard carpet, suede, velour or poly fiber fabric. As far as function, these materials will all perform similarly. They will all protect your dashboard from damaging UV rays, help keep it clean, reduce glare from the sun, and even give your tired dash a new stylish look.
Which Liner Material is Best?
So which liner material is best? If you are looking for sheer function, a carpet liner might be your best choice. It is designed to be the most durable and will provide the best protection for your car. In addition, it will cut down the most glare from the sun. Velour is a great choice for luxury vehicles. It is plush, smooth and elegant and it fits the contours of your dash nicely. Another nice choice is suede. It will give you that luxurious, leather feel, and a beautiful sheen while still giving you amazing protection for your dash. Dash Designs has developed a poly fiber fabric called DashTex. This fabric is designed to last. It protects your car from dirt, grime and UV rays and won’t fade in the sun. Each material comes in a variety of colors to fit your style preference.
A liner will allow you to enjoy your car's interior for years to come by protecting it from fading, cracking, warping or bleaching. No matter what material you choose, you won’t regret purchasing a dashboard protector for your car or truck.
