Holland: Door Defender


Our Door Defender Protection System has a rugged outdoor-grade polyethylene construction featuring a patent pending bumper profile that acts as a spring to absorb door impacts. Door Defender is entirely waterproof and has been impact-tested to 3,000 cycles in conditions as harsh as -40 F and +130 F. The system includes a "one-size-fits-all" side post guard that stretches to cover nearly all auto rack structural elements and Holland's trusted nylon buttons with triple engaging lips.

-Cross linked, closed cell polyethylene foam
-Now water absorption
-Special nylon button with triple engaging lips
-No glue – easy to remove
-Side posts, cross-bracing and gussets are foam covered to eliminate door to metal auto rack contact
