Avon Lake, Ohio…Design Engineering Inc. (DEI), specialists in heat and sound control, now offers a new convenient way to protect fuel lines, wires, cables and hoses from excessive direct or radiant heat. DEI’s Heat Shroud™ is made with a high-temp glass fiber fabric bonded to aluminized material that reflects 90% of radiant heat, and direct heat up to 500° F. A hook and loop closure design makes this a simple and easy installation. Now only remove or disconnect one end to install. This time saving convenience makes it possible to get a secure thermal protection barrier without compromising performance or safety; especially important for grassroots or professional motorsports.
Extremely pliable and fireproof, DEI’s Heat Shroud fits inside diameters ranging from ½” to 2-1/2”. In addition to its heat reflecting properties, DEI’s Heat Shroud also provides additional protection against oil, dirt and abrasion and can be trimmed to length.
Avon Lake, OH…Boom Mat, the automotive leader for acoustic control, now offers a new premium damping material that is 166% thicker than standard damping products. The XL version is an industry-leading 4mm thick. For unwanted noise in trucks, classics, street rods, modified street performance vehicles and stereo competition vehicles, Boom Mat’s XL is the most effective product for eliminating unwanted vibration, engine and road noise.
Constructed with a 4 mil aluminum panel-stiffening skin with an odorless, 4mm thick butyl noise constraining layer, Boom Mat XL traps unwanted noise while requiring less overall material to get the job done. With the thicker 4mm, only 25 to 50% coverage is required which reduces weight, installation time and material cost.

Last year, DEI introduced the ½” ID Titanium Protect-A-Sleeve to fit larger diameter spark plug wires for added protection against extreme heat generated by hot exhaust manifolds and headers. Now, this same level of protection is available in new 1” and 2” IDs that will snugly fit most radiator and heater hoses.
