Seaman Corp. pretension fabric for permanent structures

News | March 1, 2015 | By:

Seaman Corp. introduced a lightweight pretension fabric called Shelter-Rite® Tite™ that represents three proven technologies: time-tested performance, low stretch and superior tear resistance. Prepared to withstand a wide range of environmental and design challenges, it’s specifically designed to retain its original physical integrity when used for permanent tension structures.

Produced on state-of-the-art equipment in Seaman Corp.’s Wooster, Ohio, corporate headquarters, the new Shelter-Rite Tite fabric is pre-stretched both horizontally and vertically.

“As a result, Shelter-Rite Tite is a lightweight, good looking structural solution that will particularly appeal to designers, fabricators and building owners because it will not sag over time,” said Felon Wilson, Seaman Corp.’s director engineered products. “In effect, we used our very popular classic architectural fabric and made an even better product that will further meet the needs of important customers and specifiers.”

Shelter-Rite Tite is available in standard and custom colors.

Headquartered in Wooster, Ohio, with additional manufacturing in Bristol, Tenn., Seaman Corp. is known worldwide for the production of high value, high-performance fabrics including Shelter-Rite Architectural Structures as well as products for military applications, roofing systems, geomembranes, truck tarps, inflatable boats and other products.
