Sunbrella Alternatives

Popular does not equate to better and you should carefully consider your options when buying marine fabrics. Sunbrella is certainly a well known marine fabric but is it the best fit for your vessel and your climate? There are many factors to consider when selecting the best marine material for your project.

What weather conditions will your marine fabric need to endure? In dry hot regions, features such as high UV rating and fade resistance will help to prolong the life of your marine material. On the other hand, humid hot climates would be better suited to high UV rating with built in anti-microbial specs to reduce mold and mildew issues that arise in humid climates.

Marine covers are designed for several purposes including protecting your boat from dirt and the elements, UV protection for your vessel and passengers, as well as comfort, beauty and security. Consider the function and performance expected from your new boat cover. Do you need a simple low cost mooring cover or do you need a durable tear proof travel cover for your boat?

Whether you want something that breathes or something completely waterproof, we have it. If you need a high UV rating with built in anti-microbial specs, take your pick of products. If you need something lightweight or fire retardant, we've got the best option for you. Available in a multitude of colors, weights and widths, we have the largest selection of boat material available on the market.

Are you in the market for replacement bimini top fabric? Miami Corp is here to help. Not sure which boat material is best suited for your application? To help you pick which marine fabric is the best fit for your application we have provided descriptions of our products in the page below.

Boat Seat Upholstery Descriptions

Marine Grade Polyurethane Upholstery

Polyurethane, or PU, is a polymer that is added to a fabric backing resulting in a material that is breathable, durable, flexible, resilient and supple. These attributes, along with being environmentally friendly, are all conducive to the high demand in the upholstery market. Further, PU's will remain cool on the surface, even after being sat on for long time periods. Polyurethanes generally exceed standard PVC's in the arena of performance, comfort and overall appearance.
