About our products
Want to know more about the Decksaver company and our products?
Check out the answers to the most popular questions we get from Decksaver customers.
Who makes Decksaver covers?
We do! All Decksaver covers are designed, prototyped, tested and manufactured at our factory in Leeds, right here in the United Kingdom.
What are Decksaver covers made from?
All Decksaver covers are made from super-strong polycarbonate plastic.
This material is light and tough and has excellent transparency and it is also a natural UV-light filter. It is also significantly stronger than other materials such as acrylic, which can discolour and go brittle over time.
The polycarbonate we use is made especially for Decksaver, ensuring the patented smoked/clear colour is consistent across all the covers we make.
Many people ask if we can make covers from recycled plastics. At this moment in time, we cannot find a suitable recycled material that meets the high standard of our polycarbonate. We are working with suppliers to find a suitable material for the future though. Watch this space!
Can you recycle Decksavers?
You sure can, although our products are made from incredibly tough polycarbonate and will offer many years of service for your gear. Check with your local recycling centre for more information, or even better – send any unwanted covers back to us to recycle and we’ll give you a 25% discount from your next purchase at decksaver.com. Click on the button below if you want to recycle your cover with us.
Do you recycle plastics in your factory?
Yes, we do. Our commitment to the environment is to send no less than 95% of our factory waste for recycling, with zero going to landfill. Once dispatched to our recycling partner, the waste materials are washed, chipped and made ready to be transformed into brand new plastic items.
Do Decksaver covers come with a warranty?
Yes! Every new Decksaver cover purchased from Decksaver.com or one of our official retailers or distributors, is guaranteed from manufacturing defects and cracks/breaks for 2 years from the date of sale. If the product gets damaged during normal usage (for example in your home, or whilst being transported in a suitable case of bag) we will offer you a replacement cover. Normal wear and tear or misuse of product is not covered within this agreement.
Should you wish to make a claim, please return your item to the retailer where you bought your cover, with your proof of purchase and they will process the request in accordance with their usual returns policies.
If you purchased from Decksaver.com, please contact us via email or the website contact form. We are unable to process requests for items purchased directly from retailers or distributors, or third parties. Your statutory rights are not affected.
How do I look after my Decksaver covers?
Decksaver products are built to last – and are manufactured using the toughest high-quality polycarbonate, made to our unique specification.
It’s best to care for your covers with a regular wipe, using a soft, lint-free cloth. Microfibre cloths (the kind used to clean a pair of glasses) are ideal.
Tougher marks are best removed with a moistened cloth and it’s also OK to wash with warm water with a very mild detergent. Remember to remove any moisture with a dry cloth and buff dry, ensuring there are no watermarks left behind.
Always avoid strong detergents, bleaches, solvents or anything abrasive. Although Decksavers are made from tough plastic, they can scratch and the transparency could be ruined by certain cleaning products – just water is best! If in doubt, try test your cleaning method on a small corner of the lid that’s usually out of sight when in use.
Using Decksaver covers safely.
Whilst Decksaver covers are really tough and will protect music gear from dust and impact, it’s important to keep your covers away from excessive heat, such as areas with radiators or fires – and particularly, direct sunlight. In very hot conditions, the trapped air could heat up and because the snug fit does not provide ventilation, potential damage to sensitive electrical equipment could occur. Please keep your covered equipment away from strong direct sunlight at all times.
Before positioning your Decksaver, check that there are no foreign materials in-between the cover and the equipment surface and corners. Harder items could scratch your equipment and cover. A quick wipe with a cloth should do the trick.
