Shelter-Rite™ vinyl is an American Premium Fabric and is engineered to exceed extensive performance criteria and is recognized as by most in the industry as the best vinyl canopy material available. Shelter-Rite is a heavy duty 18oz, PVC coated, polyester that is available in 12 colors. Heavy duty tightly woven polyester fibers provide excellent tear, puncture, and abrasion resistance. A high-performance vinyl formulation keeps the vinyl pliable and is crack, peel, UV, mold, and mildew resistant. The seams are heat welded and the flat matte, smooth finish makes clean up easy. We offer 12 different Shelter-Rite cover colors, see below.
Hydrofend™ Coated fabric is made in U.S.A and combines strength, beauty, and water repellency in this lightweight and durable construction. Hydrofend outperforms uncoated fabrics with up to six times greater water resistance. Forged from a durable polyester monofilament yarn with great tear and tensile strength it is well suited for marine applications. With a proprietary solvent coating that creates an armor to fend off surface abrasion and to prevent fraying for the tough textile while providing defense against moisture. It offers a very lightweight construction that is both abrasion resistant and breathable. The lightweight, yet durable and long lasting 8oz per yard material makes Hydrofend easy to install and remove at a mere 1/3 to 1/2 of the weight of most common vinyl materials. The attractive matte, woven appearance Hydrofend canopies are offered in 10 color options engineered to maintain their vibrancy season after season due to the solution-dyed fiber construction.
RECwater™ material is one of the best marine grade materials available in the canopy cover market today. The RECwater material is made by starting with a premium commercial weight solution-dyed acrylic fabric at 19oz per yard. This fabric undergoes a "Blade Over Roller Coating" process that involves pouring molten liquid vinyl over the fabric that is drawn off with a blade to provide an even coating. The vinyl is then cured and heat set in a finishing range. This process allows the vinyl to soak into the fabric material to create an exceptionally strong bond to the fabric. The PVC coating applied is custom colored to match the acrylic fibers which provides you with a rich, elegant looking fabric with great waterproof performance and dimensional stability. The material choice and production process is what makes the RECwater material an excellent choice for marine applications. Below are color samples of the available colors: Linen Tweed, Blue Tweed, Green Tweed, Red Tweed, Gray, Charcoal Tweed, & Black.
QUICKLASH CANOPY ATTACHMENT SYSTEM
When you order a new replacement canopy cover, we include Bungee Attaching Hardware so that you can secure the cover to your canopy frame. Below is an overview of the attachment system present with cover options as described above.
The Quicklash canopy attachment system provides a user-friendly and easy to install design with increased strength and durability over traditional attachment systems. Sewn into the interior of the cover, Quicklash is a fabric strip with reinforced lacing holes to eliminate the need of grommets to secure the canopy. The Quicklash webbing is reinforced with Armor Bar, a high-tenacity polyester yarn which provides increased tear resistance and strength.
The 2-1/8" wide Quicklash webbing allows for quick and customizable installation with 1" lacing holes spaced every 3". The canopy cover is secured utilizing the Quicklash webbing and supplied bungees. The 1/4" stretchable, nylon covered, rubber bungees connect to any of the 1" lacing holes and then are secured to each specified attachment point on the existing canopy frame. Once all bungees have been installed even tension is created around the perimeter of the canopy frame keeping the cover secure and in place on the frame.
