The best and fastest way to protect your car is the small portable pop up carport shown here.

For many years, we have been asked to supply QuikShades to people who intend using them as protection for their cars.  QuikShade portable shelters are not designed for this purpose – they are supplied and sold as temporary structures.

We are a distribution agent for Kubby Covers in Australia.  The pictures show examples of the Car Kubby. These products are designed for the purpose, available in Black or Grey rip stop 600d Coated Polyester fabric, which is UV resistant,with fully taped seams for waterproofing.

The Kubbys are available in small and large sizes.  Although designed for Car Protection and Shelter, these Kubbys could be used for Quads, Rideon Mowers, Kids Bikes, re-locatable lawnlockers – perhaps you are planning on moving – when you go, you can take it with you.

The list of uses is endless – think about your needs and how this great product can solve your problems.  Do you have cats climbing on your car?  Worried about the hail storm coming? Bat and bird droppings? Paint fade?  Protect your investment with an affordable solution from Quikshade.

Size Matters


Is a Kubby Sunproof?

UPF ~30+ Fabric

We designed a small portable pop up carport to keep the rain, wind, dirt, hail, and sun off of your treasure .  The chosen fabric is light weight, waterproof (more on that elsewhere) and it also keeps   more than 96.7% of harmful UV radiation from damaging the paint, plastic, upholstery, seals, and rubber on your vehicle.  And in the Dove Gray fabric, it also reflects the sun and minimizes heat retention which is another enemy of vehicle longevity.

According to recent testing by  Consumer Reports, UPF ~30 is typical for protective fabrics, while UPF ~6 is typical for standard summer fabrics – so we have truly “hit the mark” on this one!

What is UPF?

A relatively new rating designation for sun protective textiles is the UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor). UPF represents the ratio of harmful (sunburn-causing) UV radiation measured without and with the protection of the fabric. For example, a fabric rated UPF 30 means that, if 30 units of UV fall on the fabric, only 1 unit will pass through to the object below. A UPF 30 fabric that blocks 29 out of 30 units of UV is therefore blocking 96.7%. UPF is new and relatable to SPF (Sun Protection Factor) measurements. While SPF traditionally use human sunburn testing, UPF is measured using a laboratory instrument (spectrophotometer or spectroradiometer) and an artificial light source, and then applying a sunburn weighting curve (erythemal action spectrum) across the relevant UV wavelengths.

UPF Rating Protection Category % UV radiation Blocked
UPF 15 – 24 Good 93.3 – 95.9
UPF 25 – 39 Very Good 96.0 – 97.4
UPF 40 – 50+ Excellent 97.5 – 98+

Making things Waterproof

When we say our small portable pop up carport is waterproof, which means that it does not leak when the environment dumps its load on your precious treasure. To do that well, you need taped seams, a fabric that stands up to a recognized level of hydrostatic pressure and a really clever design that prevents water pooling on the structure.

This guide walks you through why you want Taped Seams on your garment, tent or Kubby. When you take a nice piece of waterproof material and sew through it, you punch holes through the waterproofing making it a sieve.

To waterproof or weatherproof a garment, tent or Kubby – these holes need to be sealed up, and the easiest way to do that is for the manufacturer to apply a hot-melt tape over the seams of the tent. It’s rather like Sellotape which sticks when you iron it on. And we get it done right the first time.

All top end outdoor tents and weatherproof shelters will feature taped seams. It’s just the ‘right’ way to do it. And many waterproof jackets and trousers will also feature taped seams.
