Default Close-out fabric for behind panel

Wondering what others are doing to protect delicate avionics for aircraft with tip up canopies. I am talking about the gap between the panel and the sub-panel. I have seen fabric shrouds (presumably waterproof?) but am not aware of anyone who manufactures them. Or how they are installed. Velcro? Tape? TIA for any guidance here.

As I see it, that fabric would need to be fireproof, waterproof and easily sewn. You could use Velcro or snaps, I'd expect.

Unfortunately I don't know offhand of any material that's simultaneously fireproof and waterproof. One or the other, sure.
