Recognized in the marine market for its weather resistance and durability, Sunbrella® SeaMark® is now available in a wider selection of colors and has expanded from marine applications into the commercial shade market. Fabricated from durable Sunbrella performance fabric and 100 percent impervious waterproof backing, SeaMark is available in a wide range of fabric colors for marine uses such as biminis, dodgers and cockpit enclosures as well as restaurant patio enclosures, office canopies and awnings. These fabrics are easy to care for, fade resistant and bleach cleanable.
MarineMat decking is made of closed-cell EVA foam that is stain and mold resistant and will not absorb water. The removable Snap-It Series decking snaps onto the deck with patented drill-guided stainless steel snaps that won’t rust, allowing for easy alignment and installation. The unique snaps can cut down on installation time by 60 percent and allow users to remove the foam decking for easy cleaning and storage. The permanent Stick-It Series decking uses pressure-sensitive adhesive for an easy peel-and-stick application that forms a tight bond to the deck, preventing water and other debris from getting in.
High resolution performance fabric
Americana is a durable, digitally-printed, high-resolution outdoor vinyl. Part of Morbern’s (n)deavor! outdoor custom digital print technology, it allows designers and boat manufacturers to transform their imagery into eye-catching performance fabric. It is available in seven colors in a pattern that resembles a cross between menswear patterns and burlap. The high-performance fabric is flame, weather and mildew resistant, and can withstand 500,000 double rubs using #8 cotton duck with the Wyzenbeek test method.
The new TC-F6H from Fastmount® is the company’s strongest upholstery fixing available. The sew-on female clip blends into its environment by design. Made of a UV-stable copolymer, the clip is resistant to heat, sun and rust. Its translucent slide-lock mechanism allows cushions to be physically “locked” into position by simply sliding the lock into its housing. Ridges in the clip allow for automated parallel sewing to save cushion production time, and the slide-lock mechanism means a removal tool is not required, resulting in quick cushion construction for the upholsterer, and quick fitting for the end user.
An original fabric from Glen Raven®, Triton® is a marine-grade cover fabric that is highly water resistant. The polyester textile features a vinyl-coated topside and a soft underside to keep contents dry and free of damage. Engineered to last, it resists mildew, UV rays, shrinkage, and a range of corrosive chemicals. The color will not fade or rub off, preserving a brand-new look no matter where the boat is stored. Use for short-term or long-term covers to protect watercraft and small boats, off-road vehicles, outdoor furniture and grills. The breathable, all-weather cover fabric is easily cleaned with mild soap.
Heartier hand press
The ClipsShop® CSBUR-1 Grommet Press is a hand press designed for curtain eyelets and tarp grommets that comes with a two-step die and alignment fixture to improve productivity. The press is engineered with magnified force to provide the leverage needed to apply large size #12 (40 mm) eyelets. Coupled with the Large GrommetSniper™ and adapter, users simply load the material once and uniformly locate the distance between the eyelets. The press eliminates the need to handle material multiple times and can be used freestanding or bench mounted.
