Wooster, OH - [October 2022] 

Seaman Corporation announces the introduction of several new products to their Shelter-Rite Architectural Fabric product line.

A new Shelter-Rite® High Light Transmission architectural fabric using transparent Tedlar® PVF film. This new architectural fabric is ideal for structures that require natural light such as sports arenas, event venues, greenhouses, and more.

The Shelter-Rite HLT products are available in a number of different strengths/weights and have light transmission values ranging from 50% to 65% light transmission (diffused light).

In addition to the high light transmission, the Shelter Rite HLT products are protected with DuPont Clear Tedlar film, that blocks UV light and provides self-cleaning properties. With excellent weatherability and dirt-shedding properties, Tedlar® preserves the life and aesthetics of architectural fabric structures even in extremely harsh environments. It provides high levels of protection against ultraviolet (UV) light, moisture, rain, and pollution.
