New Invention -Cool your Boat or Yacht cabin without A/C

This Innovative boat shade system features 3M® technology and provides 3 benefits in one.

The EZ Snap® boat and yacht blinds and shading system has become one of the most popular and best-selling boating products in the last 5 years. This innovation provides boaters with 3 great benefits out of one low-cost product.

First, the EZ Snap shading mesh blocks up 90% of the sun’s heat, without blocking the view. Secondly, it also blocks up to 90% of the U.V. damage caused by the sun on boat upholstery and marine gauges, and last, but not least, it provides daytime privacy when moored in the marina or yacht club.

This patented shading system features the EZ Snap® non-fray solar shading mesh. This mesh can be “cut-to-size” right on-site for a perfect fit every time. Fits all types and sizes of boats, yachts, and sailboats. Boaters also love the “No Drill” EZ Snap® fasteners, featuring a very strong 3M peel and stick VHB adhesive.
No more drilling into the expensive hull of your vessel.

1. Block 90% of the sun’s heat, without blocking your view from the cabin of your boat.

The innovative shading EZ Snap® shading mesh is an optical grade which means it will not distort your view as you look through it. These shades come in either a black or a white color. We recommend white for boats or yachts if you are looking for the maximum amount of heating blocking and the most interior privacy when moored. The black color shades are easier to see through and do not stop as much heat from building up in the boat’s cabin, especially if you only have single-pane glass on your cabin.

2. Protect your yacht’s interior from UV damage and stop fading of your boat’s upholstery.

UV damage to the interior of your boat is one of the most expensive and frustrating problems boaters face. This problem is even worst in sunny locations like Florida, Texas, or California. 

The EZ Snap® shading mesh is designed to stop up to 90% of the full spectrum of the sun’s damaging rays. This basically means in simple math, that you are also going to stop up to 90% of the UV damage to the upholstery fabric in the boat’s cabin and marine gauges. 

 

3. Day-time privacy window blinds for your boat when moored.

Along with making your boat’s cabin cooler and stoping UV damage to your yacht’s interior, you get the added benefit of reducing the fishbowl effect when you’re moored in the marina. 

You will be able to see clearly out of your cabin windows, but people on the dock around you will not be able to see clearly in. This not only reduces prying eyes from casing out items in your boat but provides a sense of privacy from all the boating walking to and from their boats in a yacht club or boat marina setting.

Announcing Our New Shade Kit Size Calculator

Announcing Our New Shade Kit Size Calculator

We are proud to announce the launch of our brand new EZ Snap Shade Kit Size Calculator.

“What size window shade kit do I need?”

It’s the first question most people ask themselves when they want shade screen and figuring out the answer used to be difficult and time-consuming.

Now, our new calculator will instantly let you know what size kit you need, how many fasteners you need and how to cut your mesh in the most efficient way.

If your project is for an RV, boat or skylight you can use the exact same calculator.

All you need is the measurements (in inches) of the windows or skylights that need EZ Snap shade screen.

If you don’t know how to measure your window, there are a few things to consider. 

The first step is to determine where you want to mount your fasteners. 

You can mount your EZ Snap shade screen on the window frame, on the trim or on the siding.

If you are planning on using the adhesive fasteners, you will need a 1 inch wide, smooth mounting surface.

For people who have a domed skylight and aren’t sure how to measure it, start where you will be mounting your fasteners and measure across the dome itself.

Once you have the height and width for your windows or skylights, add an extra 2 inches to all your measurements.

Your shade mesh will be mounted an inch past your fasteners, so adding 2 more inches in height and width will account for the extra shade mesh needed on the top and bottom, and both sides.

Now that you have your measurements, enter the numbers in the appropriate fields.

If you have multiple windows of the same size you have the option to change the quantity.  

Next, enter your email address and press Calculate. 

Our program will analyze your measurements and will let you know the recommended size of shade kit, how many fasteners you need (in total, as well as how many per window) and how to cut your mesh.

You will also get the results emailed to you to have as a guide when it comes time for your installation.

You can see there is a category called ‘Max fastener spacing’. The calculator takes into account the size of your window and will automatically adjust your required fastener spacing.

We recommend a maximum of 10 inch spacing between fasteners for windows under 25 square feet (which is most windows). If your window is 25 square feet or larger, then you will need a maximum of 5 inch spacing.

We also recommend placing an extra fastener on all four of your window corners.

There is going to be more force on the fasteners in the corners, so placing two in every corner and offsetting them will give twice the holding power and will help keep your mesh secure and problem-free. Our calculator automatically adds an extra 4 fasteners to every window.

You can see the results below include an easy to follow cutting guide where all the different windows are labeled and have their measurements included.

No more guessing, no more math, just enter in your window or skylight measurements and find out exactly what you need to order.
