Through the years we have gained extensive knowledge in selecting the best material with the best value for each product application.  We have also implemented many "lean" manufacturing practices which streamline efficiencies in production to trim costs but not quality.  Our canopies are all manufactured in the heart of the USA with Midwest pride built into every one.

A mixture of mild detergent and water is an effective cleaner. Use caution with any type of cleaning solution, as some may cause a negative chemical reaction with the vinyl coating which can cause premature degradation and discoloration of your canopy.
 
Rush-Co Marine canopies can be installed in a similar fashion as your previous canopy. There may be slight variations, but each canopy comes with an instruction sheet to answer any questions.

Most of Rush-Co Marine canopies weigh between 55 and 70 lbs when packaged for shipping, depending on size. This includes all attachment hardware and packaging.
 
The primary difference between laminates and PVC-coated material is in how the components are held together. Laminate material is held together by fusing or rolling a top and bottom material around the base cloth, simply fusing the laminate coating layers to each other through the open spaces of the base cloth. PVC coating, however, is bonded to the base fabric by using a special adhesive process.

The first step in this process is to spread a high strength adhesive in and around each base cloth thread. Then the PVC coating, which is in a liquid state, is spread over the glue. Finally they are all fused together using heat and pressure.

Typically PVC coated fabric has stronger adhesion qualities due to this bonding process. Rush-Co Marine uses PVC coated fabric.
 
The looser the fabric is attached to the frame, the more it flutters in the wind. Ultimately that continuous flexing and beating against the framework, known as wind whip, will deteriorate the fabric.

Without ShelterRite's UV inhibitors to protect the base fabric from the sun, the base fabric weakens much more rapidly, becomes brittle and is subject to tearing. PVC coated fabric will typically resist the wind whip effect much better than a laminate because of the enhanced adhesion process (explained above).

It is also very important to keep your canopy as tight over the frame as possible to eliminate as much wind flutter as possible, as even the best fabric will break down under continual wind whip conditions
