Ameritex Fabric Systems, a member of the Taylor Made Group and supplier of engineered canvas enclosures, tops and covers for OEM boatbuilders, is introducing a new exclusive fabric to the marine industry.

“We’re calling it WeatherGuard,” Ameritex president Don Zirkelbach said in a statement. “It’s strong. It’s durable. Most importantly, it’s a cost-effective solution offered solely by Ameritex to boatbuilders looking for an alternative to higher-priced name brands.”

Made of solution-dyed polyester, WeatherGuard will maintain its color even when exposed to the elements for long periods of time, the company said. The fabric is resistant to water, tearing, abrasion, UV and mildew. It will remain soft and pliable, and it’s lightweight, making it easy to fold and store.

“After years and years of experience in the marine market, we at Ameritex know what it takes to make a robust fabric that boaters can depend on,” Zirkelbach said. “WeatherGuard has all the necessary characteristics that a good marine fabric needs. It can be used for boats of any shape or size, protecting boaters and their boats for years to come.”
