The ‘Reflector’ heat-deflecting coat is the ultimate coat for dogs which need to be shielded from the sun. The ‘Reflector’ uses an aluminised material which is proven to be of all-around superior performance and quality, complemented with a light cotton lining. The aluminised material is used by manufacturers, engineers and designers specialising in products which are subject to extreme performance and environmental conditions. These include fire, radiant heat, high-temperature steam, molten metals (as illustrated alongside) and non-FR infrared heat and sunlight. The unique five-layer textile structure reflects 95% of infrared heat, and offers an efficient high-temperature barrier material with superior durability. A polypropylene webbing strap – which has a large adjustment range – is fastened around the waist using a robust snap-click fastening. The aluminised fabric is attractively finished in a black edging tape. The ‘Reflector’ coat is designed for quality, practicality and durability. The outer side of the fabric is a highly-reflective aluminised surface while the inner surface is hard-wearing polyester. Between these two layers are five further layers – all five are illustrated alongside on the left. To identify the correct size coat for your dog measure the length of your dog’s back, from the base of the neck (a little below where you’d normally fit a collar) to the start of the tail; the correct size coat will generally be the first coat size which is as long as, or a little longer than, the dog’s back. There is a generous amount of adjustment available on the strap – irrespective of the chest size of your dog, if you’ve determined the correct length of coat it is almost certain to fit your dog. If you buy the wrong size we’ll be happy to exchange it.
