Protecting equipment from the weather
is a common requirement during the off-season. A common limitation
is storage space. This is particularly true for a golf cart which
is normally stored on a trailer. The weight of a standard tarp
was more than the users wanted to cope with, but yet the entire
cart had to be protected. The solution was to start with a tarp
large enough to cover the entire cart, and then "tailor"
it to fit snugly, and make putting it on and taking it off as
easy as possible.
The Golf Cart Cover seen below
was designed to protect a "summer-only" golf cart (used
for an emergency response team). The base material is a silver
colored exterior-grade tarp. This was measured, cut and sewn
with industrial sized zippers on the two front corners to ease
application and removal. The planning and assembly photos show
the extent to which Singular Engineering can work on projects
of wildly varying size.
Below left is the trailer-mounted cart
used by the Emergency Response team. The cover is shown (below
right) covering most of the cart, but with the zippers opened
to demonstrate how it is put on the cart.
With the cover down and in place (below
left), it only remains to pull the zippers completely closed
(below right) to protect the cart from the weather for the winter.
