Sunbrella® Adds Waterproof Sunbrella® SeaMark® To Performance Portfolio

Weather-Resistant and Design-Forward Sunbrella SeaMark Offers 100 Percent Waterproof Material for Marine and Commercial Environments

Recognized in the marine market for its superior weather resistance and durability, Sunbrella® SeaMark® is entering the industry as a new member of the Sunbrella portfolio. The new Sunbrella SeaMark is now available in a wider selection of colors and has expanded from marine applications into the commercial shade market. With more than 25 years of proven performance, Sunbrella SeaMark guarantees the ultimate protection against the elements at sea and now on land.

Sunbrella SeaMark is a top-rated marine-grade fabric that delivers powerful protection from extreme precipitation and moisture without sacrificing style. The first choice for environments that see heavy weather, the fabric is a natural fit for shade applications as well as marine.

“We’re excited to officially call SeaMark a Sunbrella
product,” said Bill McDaniel, marine market manager for Sunbrella. “With its long history of tough, waterproof performance, it’s an ideal protective layer for both people and equipment.”

Fabricated from durable Sunbrella performance fabric and 100 percent impervious waterproof backing, Sunbrella SeaMark is available in a wide range of fabric colors for marine uses such as biminis, dodgers and cockpit enclosures as well as restaurant patio enclosures, office canopies and awnings. Originally supplied under Haartz Corporation, Sunbrella has exclusively licensed the SeaMark brand from Haartz and now offers two new color options: black with a linen backing and smoke with cadet grey backing. Because the color is embedded deep inside each and every fiber, these fabrics are easy to care for, fade resistant and bleach cleanable.

“We’re revamping the line to include fresh styles and colors,” said McDaniel. “The updated collection will expand Sunbrella SeaMark’s appeal from the marine industry to everything from patio shade structures to commercial entryway canopies.”

In addition, the Skin Cancer Foundation recommends Sunbrella fabrics in shading products as an aid in the prevention of sun-induced damage to the skin as part of a complete sun protection regimen including the regular use of sunscreen. Whether water or sun, Sunbrella SeaMark provides protection against the toughest climates.
