As with any product made of cloth, there are many different ways of constructing the same item, some good, some not so good. We have tried many of these methods to come up with this one, that is based on the excellence in Craftsmanship
We use 7/8-inch and 1-inch stainless steel to build biminis and enclosure frames. We bend the frame shoulders at 6, 8, 10, or 12 inches, as appropriate to your vessel.
Clear vinyl window panels sandwiched between two layers of fabric showcase the most visible feature of upscale trim.
Existing canvas covers stretch or shrink and fray. They may not have fit properly when made or may not accommodate later modifications to your watercraft. Therefore, we take careful measurements for each new, customized enclosure, bimini, or cockpit cover.
Quality Marine Fabrics
Water and Sun deterirate many materials, so we use Sunbrella®, SeaMark®, and Stamoid™ marine-grade fabrics. These offer the best choices for price and quality.
Heavy Duty Vinyl
We know that constant exposure to sun, wind, and water take a toll on materials. Therefore, we only use marine-grade, clear vinyl at least 30 mil thick. We recommend premium brands such as StrataGlass™ and O’Sea®.
PTFE lifetime guaranteed Threads
The best marine threads are PTFE lifetime guarantee—and that’s what we use. Choose between Tenara® and Solarflex®.
Zippers take a lot of abuse and need to stand up to tough requirements. They have to look good, too. We use industrial strength zippers made by YKK Fastening Products Group
Weak points attend any place where there’s a fastening. To ensure that covers don’t tear and fastenings don’t fail, we add reinforcing material to ensure durability and strength.
We fit all our Bimini tops pockets with zippers. This gives an extra flexibility and the Bimini can easily be installed or removed as needed.
Heat sealed fabric
Hot knife cutting melts and seals fabric edges to prevent fraying along cut edges and seams.
