You don't have to spend a fortune to upgrade your vehicle's interior style and give your ride a new lease on looks. By installing an inexpensive Custom Dash Cover you not only protect your dashboard from dirt and sun damage - you add a touch of style and personal expression to your vehicle. We offer a complete line of Dashboard Covers and Rear Deck Covers that come in a variety of materials, colors, and even fashionable prints. Read on and find out how easy a dash mat is to install and how they keep your interior looking great.
Even the most cleanliness-obsessed, Armor All-wielding drivers can't protect their dashboards from every hazard that comes their way. Sunlight and heat cause unsightly, irreversible damage to your dash no matter how many cleaners and protective formulas you rub into it. Dashboard damage makes your interior look bland and uninviting, and it can ruin your vehicle's resale value. The best way to keep your dash looking new is by guarding it with a Dash Cover. These mats enhance your interior style and protect your deck from a number of harmful environmental factors.
Provides Sunlight Protection
The sun provides life for just about everything on Earth - except your car's interior. Because your dashboard is located directly under the windshield, it's exposed to a daily onslaught of sunlight and UV rays. These rays can fade your dash, leaving it looking dull and drab. Plus, excessive sunlight can cause your dash to crack, making it look even worse. To put it simply, if you live in the desert or anywhere else that gets a lot of sun, you need to keep your dashboard covered.
With a DashMat or Coverking Dashboard Cover on your deck, your dashboard gets a reliable shield against harsh sunlight. Our Dashboard Covers are specially treated to resist UV rays and delay sun fading and damage. No matter what material you choose, a Dashboard Mat keeps the sun off your interior.
Prevents Heat Damage
Helpful Tip: Don't just take our word for it! When shopping for the best dashboard cover for your vehicle, be sure to read our Dash Mat Reviews, written by drivers and customers just like you.Your dash gets hit with a lot of sunlight and UV rays, and that also means it has to absorb a ton of heat. Without proper coverage your dashboard can get extremely hot, which leads to warping and cracking that ruins your interior looks. Plus, after being parked under the sun your dash can get so hot you could use it to fry an egg - or your fingertips. Luckily, our Dash Board Covers and Rear Deck Covers keep much of that heat and sunlight away from your deck so your interior looks great and you don't run the risk of touching a searing-hot dash.
Extreme interior heat and UV rays also cause another harmful phenomenon known as plasticizer migration. When exposed to high temperatures, certain chemicals in your dashboard slowly start break apart and turn into a gas. The gas rises and coats the inside of your windshield, causing fog and damaging the glass. Dash Covers, however, keep temperatures down to minimize plasticizer migration, and they block rising gases to keep your windshield clean and clear.
Blocks Dirt, Dust, & Scratches
Your dashboard isn't just susceptible to sun and heat damage. It's also vulnerable to damage from dust, grime, and any number of scratches and scuffs. Dust and dirt quickly build up on your dash, and those tiny particles can easily create little scratches that slowly dull your finish. Plus, the vinyl on your dash can only withstand so much when your passengers kick their muddy feet up on long rides or bang along with their favorite drum solos. By adding a Dashboard Cover to your interior, your dash keeps its looks without falling prey to these daily hazards.
Adds Unique Style
Are you bored with the same old black, tan, or grey dash staring back at you every day? Let a Custom Dashboard Mat jazz up your interior looks. Our covers are available in a wide range of bold colors that add some extra style to your bland factory trim. If you're looking to make a big statement, go with a Fashion Print Dashboard Cover and show off a bit of your personality. We also carry Camo Dash Covers that go perfectly with your hunting gear and other outdoor lifestyle accessories.
Covers Pre-Existing Damage
You now know how a dash mat can keep your dashboard looking showroom-new, but what if yours is already faded and beat-up? Great news - a Dash Board Mat is like a time machine for your interior. By simply laying down a mat you can cover up all that unsightly sun damage and make your dash look like new.
Dash Mats come in a variety of materials, each with their own unique look and feel. With all the different cover styles out there, you're bound to find one that's right for your tastes. Choose from the following Dashboard Cover materials and styles to round out your interior style.
Carpet Dash Mats
Low-pile carpet is the most common dashboard cover material. DashMat Carpet Dash Covers are excellent for driving in sunny areas because they minimize light reflections, preventing dangerous glare. Carpet also adds a warm, welcoming look to your interior, and these mats are usually available in a wide range of colors.
Velour Dashboard Covers
Velour isn't just for 1970's groomsmen outfits - it also adds a groovy look and feel to your dash. Velour is a soft, luxurious material that provides all the sun protection you need for your dash without looking utilitarian. Coverking Velour Dash Mats are also durable enough to stand up to changing temperatures without shrinking or changing shape.
Suede Dash Mats
Suede Dashboard Covers offer a smooth luxury feel that adds high class to any vehicle. These mats are specially treated for a fine sheen and an excellent feel that lasts, even in the face of pelting sunlight. Plus, Suede Dash Mats are easy to clean off. They're available in both real and imitation suede, and they both offer the same great look, feel, and protection.
Molded Dash Covers
If you're looking for a smooth, seamless look, Molded Dash Covers are for you. These mats feature a poly-carpet exterior, but instead of being stitched together they're lined with a thermo-formed backing that's molded to every one of your dashboard's contours. The result is a one-piece, seamless shell that fits your dashboard perfectly and gives it a whole new face.
Fashion Print Dashboard Mats
Dash covers don't just offer protection - they can also make a big statement in your vehicle. Fashion Print Dashboard Covers add some extra personality to your interior and provide a custom look that's all your own. They're made with the same high-quality materials and custom designs as our carpet mats, only they're printed with unique designs including Hawaiian print, animal fur, and even camouflage.
Rear Deck Covers
Just like your dashboard, the rear deck behind your back seat gets pelted with harsh sunlight on a daily basis. With a Rear Deck Cover installed you can avoid fading and cracking, and you can give your already-damaged deck a new look. We offer Carpet Rear Deck Covers and Suede Rear Deck Covers to match your dash mat, and we also carry Fashion Print Rear Deck Covers that let you add some bold style under your rear windshield. Our Rear Deck Mats are fully custom-designed to your vehicle, so they accommodate for your speakers, clips, and third brake lights without doing any cutting or other modifications.
You don't need a degree in upholstery to install your new Dashboard Cover. In fact, Dash Mats are extremely easy to install. You don't need to do any fabric cutting or stitching, and you don't need any tools. Installing usually only involves a few easy steps:
- Clean your dashboard and make sure it's free of dust, dirt and grime
- Cut the included double-sided tape into 1-inch strips and place them at the front and back of your dashboard
- Apply the mat to your dash, starting with the front end
