Seaman Corporation, manufactures Shelter-Rite Architectural Fabrics. Made in the USA, Shelter-Rite® leads the industry in modern materials and methods, producing high performance architectural fabrics for over 70 years. A vertically integrated company, Seaman Corporation develops proprietary formulations, knits, weaves and coats fabric in our two manufacturing facilities located in Wooster, OH and Bristol, TN.
Shelter-Rite Architectural Fabrics have been the material of choice of architects, designers and fabricators for commercial and military projects in the United States and throughout the world. Shelter-Rite is engineered with a proprietary coating formula for superior UV and mildew resistance, and unique weft inserted knit fabric that provides excellent tensile, tear and seam strength. This time-tested technology has resulted in architectural structures that withstand years of exposure to harsh environments.
In addition to Shelter-Rite Architectural Fabrics, Seaman Corporation also produces high performance FiberTite® Roof Systems, XR® Geomembrane Liners and Industrial Fabrics for Shelter-Rite® Truck Tarps, Dock Seals; and military fabrics used for flexible fuel and water tanks and military tents.
