SureShade obtains Canadian patent


SureShade received patent approval in Canada for its marine shade system.

The automated tele-frame boat shade system has gotten a notice of approval for Canadian boating markets.

Securing a patent in Canada further solidifies the company’s strategic vision of having a globally patented product for the boating industry.

SureShade also has received notice of approval for patents in Europe and China (including Hong Kong) and has several other U.S. and international patents pending for its marine sunshade designs.

“Our latest patent approval in Canada strengthens SureShade’s position as a key contributor to innovative boatbuilding designs worldwide,” SureShade co-founder and business leader Dana Russikoff said in a statement. “Boatbuilders and dealers in the U.S., Canada, Europe or China can easily add our sunshade systems to their lines as factory or aftermarket installations, giving clients worldwide a better boat shade solution.”

The patent for the automated tele-frame design in Canada adds to an existing U.S. patent for the same design, along with U.S. patents held for the company’s arched roller design and automated bimini top product.
