For this issue of Best Practice, we are extremely excited to introduce Carcoon with our esteemed Commitment to Excellence Award as a result of their unique approach to vehicle storage and protection.
Carcoon are proud to be the official manufacturers and international distributors of all Carcoon products, including: BikeBubble-EVO-Veloce, JetCell, HeliCell and a full range of Carcoon Workstations. Although the company first started out specialising in innovative car storage systems, their range of products has vastly expanded over the years thanks to their dedication to innovation and development. Based in Salford, all Carcoon products are expertly designed in house for each particular purpose, with their patented storage units designed to isolate, stabilise, ventilate and circulate the air within the enclosed protective environment.
Carcoon is a very special company in that every single product produced is unique to the company. One of their most popular products includes the Indoor EVO Carcoon, distinctive in its design and consisting of a separate top cover and base mat. All the user has to do is drive the vehicle onto the mat and place the cover over the car, connecting the plug into a 12-volt power supply. One of the biggest advantages of the EVO Carcoon is its user-friendly nature and the fact that it can be used both in garages or outdoors. The EVO Carcoon, both indoor and outdoor models, can be custom made, therefore allowing both tall vehicles and reduced height units to be catered for.
Additionally, all Carcoon storage systems, including the BikeBubble, use the unique ‘active airflow’ function, re-circulating air using Activated Carbon Filters. This creates a protective ‘clean room’ within the storage environment, keeping the vehicle perfectly protected during the winter months. Better yet, all Carcoon storage systems boast automatic battery backup and battery management for the stored vehicle.
Carcoon also manufacture a unique and patented range of Free Standing Workstations, which enable the same high-level top quality work offered by traditional body shops at a fraction of the cost, with the added convenience of working on location. Their workstations are produced in a wide range of sizes, and not only that but the workstations are also specifically designed to protect the environment from potentially harmful emissions. This is achieved using a minimum of 2,800 CFM air supply and massive three-layer paint arrest, plus activated carbon filter chambers.
As one of the leading names in UK innovation, Carcoon attend a number of tradeshows a year where they can demonstrate the uses and advantages of their protective bubbles and connect with a wider client base.
This year, they attended the SEMA show in Las Vegas where they showcased their carcoons and bike bubbles, using modern paints and SMART procedures within the latest Carcoon Aero workstation. This was the first time the Aero workstation had been unveiled, and it proved hugely popular amongst both attendees and fellow exhibitors alike. On top of that, the team also displayed the latest HeliCell and JetCell products, both of which use the latest humidity controlled technology so as to better protect your vehicle.
