All Horseware Ireland turnout rugs are waterproof to in excess of 3000mm and also breathable to 3000g. This allows 3000g of water vapor to be released in a 24-hour period from underneath your turnout.
All Horseware rugs come with a waterproof guarantee:
RAMBO Turnouts - 3-year guarantee: RAMBO turnouts use Aquatrans technology and we offer a guarantee that your rug will remain waterproof and breathable for a minimum of 3 years.
Rhino Turnouts - 3-year guarantee: Rhino turnouts use Aquatrans technology and we offer a guarantee that your rug will remain waterproof and breathable for a minimum of 3 years.
Amigo Turnouts - 1-year guarantee: Amigo turnouts offer a 1-year waterproof warranty.
During this guarantee period your rug should not require any re-proofing provided it is cared for properly, such as being stored in a dry, cool place when not in use and washed as per the care guidelines (30º wash, no heat, no tumble drying). Once these guidelines are followed, the waterproofing on your rug should last the duration of your guarantee. Incorrect washing of rugs can be a major cause of waterproof coating breaking down. Equally the storing and care of a rug is also important. Rugs should not be exposed to prolonged UV or extremely high temperatures.
Your Rambo & Rhino Turnouts must be washed according to the instructions given, failure to do so will damage the waterproof coating of your turnout and effect your guarantee, you must not apply any form of waterproofing or water repellent treatments during this guarantee period.
Outside of guarantee periods, waterproof fabric coatings will eventually start to break down over time. When it becomes clear that your rug is no longer waterproof it is important to assess the cause. Again, assess the rug for damage to the outer fabric. If there is damage to the exterior of the rug, it will make re-proofing more difficult and less successful. In such a case, it may be more cost effective to purchase a new rug entirely.
If the exterior fabric is undamaged, the rug will need to be cleaned thoroughly to remove all dirt before applying a re-proof or water repellent. We would recommend using a professional service to reproof any rugs. However, if you wish to carry out a re-proof the camping industry is a great area to source a re-waterproofing product. Please note* Horseware takes no responsibility for the effect of these products on your rug.
