Motorhome & Caravan Screw Cover Strips
Screw cover strips are used as a decorative trim to cover the screw heads and fixings in aluminium channels and waist rails. Manufactured from a flexible PVC compound in a wide selection of colours, these profiles are found on most motorhomes and caravans. Replacing your existing screw cover strips when they begin to fade or shrink is essential when restoring the exterior of your van.
These trims are available in several different sizes designed to fit into the dovetail recess in the aluminium channel. We recommend that you warm the section in hot water so that it becomes soft and pliable. This allows you to squeeze the screw cover strip into the opening in the frame along the exterior of your caravan or motorhome. As it is possible to stretch PVC during fitting, we recommend that you cut the trim several inches longer than the end of the channel. This allows you to cut the trim in line with the end of the frame at a later date knowing that you have allowed enough time for the section to shrink back to its original length.
