KELE KOV Series Actuator Cover vs. WeatherMaXX Covers

Looking to replace your KELE KOV Series Fabric Weatherproof Cover for Globe Valve Actuators? Many customers contact us with a story similar to Mr. Rowland’s:

“Our chemistry building has eight valve actuators on its roof that are exposed to the elements. When they were installed in 2014, the general contractor installed Kele KOV covers on each of them. All eight covers disintegrated within a year and were replaced, out of warranty, with identical Kele KOV covers. The second set of covers performed just as poorly. The nylon webbing that Kele uses on their covers is not resistant enough to UV light; the webbing becomes so brittle after a year of sun exposure that it turns to dust when touched. Once the nylon webbing fails, the covers blow away with the wind.”

-E. Rowland, Former Kele KOV Actuator Cover owner

In an effort to alleviate any confusion between the KELE KOV actuator cover and the Thermaxx WeatherMaXX sizes, we are offering this conversion chart.
