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.

UV Ray DamageThe sun is a very powerful force indeed. Especially when you consider the earth only receives about one two-billionth of the sun’s total energy. We have all experienced the power the sun has to fade and damage,whether it’s the paint on your car or your favorite chair.

Sun light contains three types of energy rays:

  •  ultraviolet radiation
  •  visible light
  •  infrared radiation

Ultraviolet (UV) is the most dangerous and damaging.   Ultraviolet rays break down the chemical bonds in coloring dyes, causing the color(s) in an object to fade over time. Some objects are more prone this bleaching effect, such as dyed textiles like carpet, drapes or furniture. Given enough time in the sun, everything eventually fades.

So how do we slow down the fading process in our homes?

When it comes to UV fading and damage in the home, UV light entering from windows is responsible for almost 100% of the problem. The perfect solution is to filter out the majority of the sun’s damaging rays, while still retaining enough of the visible light spectrum to properly light the room. One of the best ways to accomplish this is by using an exterior shading solution such as an awning or an exterior shade screen. These exterior solutions not only filter out the majority of the damaging UV rays, they also stop the heating rays of the sun before they enter the window.

The EZ Snap exterior shading material typically filters out up to 90% of the damaging UV radiation from the sun, as well as, 90% of the heating rays of the sun.

Three benefits, one product.

By simply installing exterior window shades on your boat or yacht, you are getting three great benefits the moment they are installed.

Yacht Shade Mesh Boat Shades1. Privacy:

Many boat owners spend just as much time on their boats, moored in the marina, as they do out on the water. When you’re sitting in your boats cabin, the last thing you want is to have every single person who walks by looking in at you. Exterior boat blinds give you day-time privacy. Anyone trying to looking in from the outside will find it almost impossible, but if you are sitting in the inside looking out, you will see out clearly, as if the shades where not even there.

2. Heat Block:

The sun is a powerful force and although it’s great to work on your tan while out on the water, there are times when you just want the comfort of the cool cabin of your boat. Exterior boat shades not only stop the sun before it enters the glass, they also shade and cool the glass itself. The EZ Snap exterior boat shades block up to 90% of the sun’s heat without blocking the view.

3. U.V. Protection:

The ultraviolet rays of the sun have the power to quickly discolor and ruined the interior seating and woodwork of your boat. Exterior shades and blinds for your yacht or boat filter the damaging UV rays entering your cabin. This substantially lessens the amount of damage they can do to your expensive boat interior.
They also cut down and the glare from the sun and the water. Sorry, I guess that’s 4 benefits in one product, not three.

Happy boating!

Place approximately 12 inches apart on the lens of the skylight.

AirFlo™ Spacers are recommended for all Dome Skylights or Skylights with Plastic Lens.

To use: Place the spacers approximately 12 inches apart or how every many
would be required to keep the mesh from laying on the skylight lens.

Why do we suggest the AirFlo Spacers: Many dome skylights are quality, "Made in America" skylights, but unfortunately there are
a lot of skylights on the market now that are made off-shore. In very hot weather, these poorly made skylight lens can develop crazing or imperfections in the
plastic of the skylight lens. This is caused by an excessive heat build-up in the sub-standard plastic lens.
The AirFlo™ spacers lift the shading mesh off of the lens of the skylight, allowing the excess heat to dissipate.

NOTE: Using AirFlo Spacers will slightly increase the size of the dimensions of the shading mesh you will need.

If you are confident that you have a quality built dome skylight, then these spacers
are probably not necessary for your project, but if you are unsure, better to be safe than sorry.

The Primer Pen is used for applications where it is necessary to increase the surface adhesion of the EZ Snap stud.

Contains a 3M Clear, Colorless primer. Enough to prime the surface area for approximately 50 studs.

To use: Shake the pen well before using.
A gentle squeeze 1″ in from the felt tip, ruptures the inner membrane, allowing the contents to be easily dispensed.
Apply a thin, uniform coating to the bonding surface using the minimum amount that will fully coat the surface.
Dries clear. Allow to dry thoroughly before applying the studs. This takes approximately 5 minutes at room temperature.
Extremely porous surfaces may need a second application for uniform coverage and good adhesion.

TIP: Make a template, cut-out to the same size as the stud.
This prevents wasting primer by only priming the area that the stud will bond to.
**As with all primer type products, test on small area first to ensure it is compatible with surface.
