Ameriex unveils fabric roof system

ADVERTISEMENT

Florida-based Ameritex Fabric Systems has introduced a canvas power sunroof system.

Using its patented SureSeal technology, Ameritex engineered a roof with a top fabric section and inner headliner that can be changed or replaced in minutes without any fasteners, said Don Zirkelbach, president of Ameritex Fabric Systems.

“It’s a fact of the boating lifestyle that fabric, in the marine environment, takes a beating,” he said. Both parts of the roof — the outer top section and the inner headliner — snap in using a mechanism much like a resealable plastic bag.

The roof uses tensioning mechanisms and seamless fabric to make it drum tight with no leaks, the company said in a news release.
