ShoreMaster Fabric has built its reputation on designing and manufacturing a vast array of high-quality, long-lasting marine products. It now offers WeatherMax from Safety Components as a premier fabric choice for all of its aftermarket boat covers and boatlift canopies.
With an extensive library of patterns, ShoreMaster Fabric produces exact-fit custom covers for more than 100 boat brands. Semi-custom versions are available for all major hull types. Its CoverTuff boatlift canopy covers are tailored specifically for the frames of each boat hoist canopy brand and model.
“WeatherMax is our high-end fabric option,” said Bill Kasper, ShoreMaster Fabric sales and marketing manager. “Our products are exposed to harsh elements daily and WeatherMax stands up to the abuse. Color retention is probably the most important attribute. Customers in southern climates, particularly, can be assured their covers will hold up to the wear-and-tear of UV exposure.”
“From a manufacturing standpoint, WeatherMax is lightweight and easy to handle by our cutting and sewing departments. The ability to heat-weld seams shortens production time and delivers a stronger, less-stressed cover with no needle punctures. This is important for us and our customers,” said Kasper. “Using WeatherMax results in an overall cleaner-looking cover.”
Because some of ShoreMaster Fabric’s products are large, WeatherMax’s lighter weight makes it manageable for their customers to install, take off and store their covers. “Considering its extreme durability and abrasion resistance, our customers can’t go wrong with WeatherMax,” said Kasper.
He also appreciates WeatherMax’s emphasis on aesthetics and wide range of color options. They will offer Taupe, Sand, Light Charcoal, Pacific Blue, Captain Navy, Black, Scarlet, Burgundy, Forest Green, Forest Tweed, Sapphire Tweed and Yellow.
Completely recyclable, highly breathable WeatherMax has twice the strength and six times the tear and abrasion resistance of acrylic. Guaranteed to retain its rich color for a minimum of five years, WeatherMax fabric employs tightly woven, solution-dyed SaturaMax yarns.
In addition to boat covers and lift canopies, ShoreMaster Fabric manufactures bimini boat tops and related marine accessories. More information is available at www.shoremasterfabric.com.
