Sunbrella is introducing its first non-woven marine seating fabric. The new Sunbrella Horizon seeks to enrich the boating experience with a luxuriously-soft hand specially designed to resist bacterial staining, cold-cracking, excess stretching and fading. The new product line will debut at the Miami International Boat Show, Feb. 14-18.
“Sunbrella identified a need for a soft, longer-lasting upholstery for the marine market, and we felt it essential to carry the brand’s technical expertise through this new product line,” said Bill McDaniel, marine market manager for Sunbrella. “We invested in extensive research and developed a solution that extends the brand’s legendary performance into a new non-woven line. We’re thrilled to take a bold step in bringing a new product to the marine market that’s backed by the Sunbrella brand promise.”
Sunbrella Horizon withstands life on the water, including consequences from the notorious pinking effect. Sporting a luxuriously soft hand, this four-way stretch textile is offered in two distinct embossing patterns and a wide array of 30 colors. It is also designed to match perfectly with other Sunbrella products, ensuring seamless coordination across existing Sunbrella marine products.
The pigments used in Horizon are consistent with the pigments which are fed into each Sunbrella fiber, allowing for whole boat customization and color consistency. The product features powerful resistance to excess stretching and its excellent recovery capability prevents puddling, so boat seating remains in top condition.
