DEI Celebrates "25 Years of Innovation"

Avon Lake, Ohio based thermal barrier and sound control products specialist Design Engineering is celebrating its 25th anniversary.

Founded in 1995 by performance industry veteran Dale Markley and his wife Nancy, Dale's son David has been at the helm since 2001 and has overseen the company earning an international reputation for its dynamic pioneering solutions to combat power-robbing heat issues.
"Over the years we have designed and created unique 'thermal tuning products' for the powersports, racing and performance aftermarket, as well as related industries such as aviation, marine and even locomotive," says John Gabriel, Powersports Manager.
"DEI is also well known for its 'build to spec' contract work for commercial, industrial and military-related businesses, along with a myriad of other industries.

"Our extensive product list includes a wide variety of heat shields and thermal containment products, exhaust and pipe wraps, line and hose sleeving, sound control barriers and absorbers, headliners and accessories, safety gear and CryO2, which is designed to harness the cryogenic properties of liquid CO2 to lower intake charge temperatures, resulting in more horsepower."
Seen here, DEI's bodywork protection kit is designed to keep excess heat from melting plastic and frying bodywork. It is great for use on fairings, air boxes, seat pans, rear fenders, etc.
"This kit is great to use when adding an aftermarket exhausts or replacement plastics that didn't include any heat shielding. The superior materials can also provide an upgrade over worn out OEM heat shielding. All materials have a self-adhesive backing and can be cut easily to shape."
The kit includes one 12" x 24" DEI Reflect-A-Cool heat reflective sheet, one 1-1/2" x 15 ft roll of Cool Tape, and two 10" x 10" sheets of Extreme Heat Barrier.
