Ridge Sewing

 Manufacturer of High-Quality Sailplane Canopy Covers


Canopy Covers

Ridge Sewing manufactures two distinct lines of canopy covers.

Sunbrella - the All weather cover

Sunbrella covers are custom fit for each type of glider and are designed to protect canopies of gliders tied out in the elements.

  • The construction is a double layer; the outer fabric is made from a specially manufactured UV and water resistant acrylic fabric, the inside lining is a mildew and water resistant soft flannel material.
  • The Sunbrella cover protects against scratches, dirt, rain, sun and dust pollution in all weather, while the aircraft can stay fully rigged.
  • Top stitching provides added strength and a crisp, contoured look.
  • 1/4 inch bungee typically secures cover with two belly straps and a double V strap attaching to the trailing edge of the wings.
  • The Sunbrella cover eliminates accumulation of condensation.
  • Sunbrella covers are readily washable (cleaning instructions are provided).
  • The white colored fabric minimizes heat build up in the cockpit.

Cotton Flannel - the dust cover

Cotton flannel covers are also individually fitted for each type of glider. They are designed to insulate the cockpit area and protect the canopy while sitting on the flight line for a limited time, or while parked inside a hangar or trailer.

  • The construction is a single layer 10oz brushed flannel mildew resistant material. 
  • Top stitching provides added strength and a crisp, contoured look.
  • 1/4 inch bungee typically secures cover with two belly straps and a double V strap attaching to the trailing edge of the wings.
  • Canopy stays dry, clean, and polished at all times and the cockpit free of condensation.
  • The cover insulates the cockpit from heat
  • Protects your windscreen against dirt and scratches.
  • Lightweight
  • The compact size allows you to carry it with you in the aircraft.
  • Cleans easily in a domestic washing machine. 
  • The neutral colored fabric minimizes heat build up in the cockpit.
