New Product Provides Safe Harbor for Boats in Storage
Innovative Overhead Canopy Protects Canvas and Interiors for Boats Stored in Dry Stack Marinas
“It’s a real problem for boat owners, and an expense they don’t plan on. They’re ready to take their boat out for the day, only to find the upholstery stained with oil and gasoline dripped from the boat stored above, or covered with a black film from forklift diesel soot,” explained Stephanie Serio, Total Concept Marine’s President. “RackShield™ is protection that boat storage facilities can promote to attract new boat storage customers and keep existing customers happy.”
Low Cost Solution Provides Longer Life for Older Dry Stack Buildings
Another source of damage to boat canvas tops and interior upholstery is rust dripping from steel support beams and metal roofs in older dry stack barns. For around the same price as shrink wrapping one boat, RackShield™ is a cost effective solution that can extend the functional life of marina storage facilities for years, delaying the expense of replacing the entire structure. It comes with a one year warranty on labor and materials and a five year warranty on continuity of color.
Stands Up to the Elements
The product is constructed using all non-corrosive materials. The waterproof canopy is made using a lightweight, high tensile strength, fire-retardant material that resists mold and mildew. “Boat owners spend a lot of money on their vessels. Knowing their investment will always be clean, unstained and ready for a fun day on the water can be the deciding factor when choosing a boat storage facility,” said Serio.
Two Durable Options
For indoor barns, RackShield™ Indoor is streamlined and economical, allowing for adjustments to storage bays without interfering with rack boards or fire sprinklers. RackShield™ Outdoor is a modular version used for outdoor storage that is manufactured to be inherently wind resistant. If the forklift accidentally catches it as the operator is putting a boat on the rack, the canopy slides back. In the event of an upcoming storm or hurricane, there’s no need to take it down, as the entire RackShield™ canopy can be pushed back and secured at the rear of the bay.
