Fabrics

 

 

Since 2 years due to policy changes of the big fabric mills in the USA is the availability of Fabric style and colour not always guaranteed and we sometimes have to switch to another colour or another style. But be assured that will not change the usability or longlivety of the cover .

 Darker colours sometimes last longer than the lighter fabrics due to the fact that there is more pigment in the colour. But be aware the Navy , Black or Slate  are so dark that you need a light in order to see on the boat when the cover is on. So if you want to work on the boat a medium or light colour is better. 

Here are the fabrics we use at present.

WeatherMax 80

​Characteristics:



  • ​Weight - 8 oz

  • Woven Satura Max Fiber , no coating 

  • Breathable, this refers to the ability of the fabric to transfer water from the inside out ,but only if there is a force at work, Sunshine or an artificial source of heat which raises the temperature on the inside of the cover compared to the outside.

  • Durable, high tear strength. However watch for abrasive to other fabrics especially avoid direct contact to Sunbrella products. (in most cases there is a chafe protection sewn into the cover).

  • Waterproof /Water-resistant fabric. The seams in the cover may leak for some time till dirt has filled up into the needle holes. Also sometimes in very heavy Rain there can be some leakage due to the so called Spray through effect. This is because there is no PU coating on the fabric which on the other side makes it more breathable.

  • There is a  DWR (Durable Water Repellent) coating applied to boath sides which makes the water pearl off , this will fade over time and can be reapplied. This has nothing to do with the water resistance of the fabric. Further to avoid mildue buildup there is also a antifungizide applied

Colours:



  • Silver Grey 

    • Best choice if you want to work or live on the boat with the cover on.
