Seaman Corporation, a world leader in the innovation and design of high performance coated fabrics since 1949, manufactures Shelter-Rite architectural fabrics. A vertically integrated company, Seaman Corporation develops proprietary formulations, knits, weaves, and coats fabric in two U.S.–based plants.
Seaman Corporation's leadership in the high-performance architectural fabric market dates back to the mid-1960s with its patented Portomod framed structure. The knowledge gained from actually fabricating and installing their own fabric provides a knowledge base to provide engineering support for today's structures. Shelter-Rite architectural fabrics have been the material of choice of architects, designers and fabricators for commercial and military projects in the United States, China and throughout the world for over 40 years.
Offering a consistent coating formulation and base fabric has led to actual field performance exceeding warranty length on a regular basis. In addition to being a market leader in the Architectural fabric market, Seaman Corporation is a leading global producer of industrial fabrics used in high performance FiberTite® roof systems, XR® technology geomembrane liners and covers, Shelter-Rite® truck tarps, Shelter-Rite® dock seals, and numerous military applications, including flexible fuel and water tanks, and tents.
