Protection from sunshine.

The sun's ultra violet rays are harmful to the sailcloth of your glider. Have a look at your glider bag. If the material has faded with exposure to sunshine, then the sun's ultra violet rays could be passing through your bag and degrading your glider's sailcloth.A heavy duty glider bag is the answer to reducing the damage done by harmful ultra violet rays.


Protection from Road dirt and salt.

Salt and road dirt can damage your original glider bag. Water resistant glider bags can protect your original glider bag from ageing,which would be beneficial when you come to sell your glider again.

Under no circumstances should a wet glider be stored for a long time in a water resistant bag


Protection from water.

Many components of a glider are made from aluminium. When a glider gets wet the metal can corrode and reduce in strength. Leading edge and keel tubes which fit inside each other with a close tolerance are a perfect place for corrosion to hide. With a tube wall thickness of only 1 mm any corrosion on these tubes could lead to structural failure.Every tube to tube connection should be sprayed with a water repellant such as silicone spray to discourage moisture in between the tubes. Also VG ropes can expand when allowed to get wet. They do not return to the original size when they dry out again. The result is a VG which is hard to operate.

Under no circumstances should a wet glider be stored in a water resistant bag for a long period of time.
