A Gordillo™ is a Sewn-Folded or Thermic-Weld way cover made with stainless steel plates covering each convolution. It is available in any flat sided form (e.g. rectangular, strip-type, way cover), as well as in a round configuration combined with a sewn bellows. The stainless steel plates shield the bellows from damaging hot chips and hot sparks, which could quickly damage a conventional bellows. A Gordillo way cover is a convenient option where there is not enough space for a telescoping steel way cover.
