BIMINI TOP CANVAS TYPES
Polyester or acrylic solution dyed fabrics are the best type of material for all marine applications including bimini tops. The color resists fading and is more vibrant because the yarn is dyed before it’s made into the fabric. This ensures your bimini top doesn’t just provide optimal protection; it also stays looking good.
Bimini tops that utilize cotton or standard sewing thread are common in the industry. These tops are cheaper and look good initially, but the bimini top often lasts six months or less. This negates any savings made when you’re right back in the market for a new top.
To protect against UV rays, coated and sealed polyester is ideal. It allows the bimini top to resist stretching and keep its shape. According to the Boat Owners Association of the United States, it is the best type of material. It is thick enough to keep water out but prevents mold by allowing water vapor through the bimini top.
BIMINI TOP MEASUREMENTS
To get the most out of your bimini top, it is important that you properly measure it. The size of the frame you will need and the shade it provides depend on the mounting point you choose. Getting the perfect fit will ensure you get the most out of your bimini top.
Step 1: Width
Determine the mounting points for your bimini top. This will set the width of the frame, determine where the shade is and dictate where the top is when folded up.
Step 2: Length
Measure the length to determine where the shade will be and how much coverage your bimini top will have.
Step 3: Height
Height should be determine based on what the primary use of your boat is. If you want to stand underneath the bimini top, it’s important that you account for that.
