The Poulsbo Yacht Club, located on Liberty Bay in Northwest Washington State, was founded in 1956. One of the club’s features were covered boat slips that protected members yacht’s from the damaging effects of sun, rain, and hail. These PVC membrane covers were becoming less reliable with age and needed to be replaced.
While many companies manufacture tension fabric structures for use as weather protection shelters, very few companies stand behind their work either for ongoing maintenance and eventual refurbishment. The club needed to find a company with the experience and expertise to perform the work.
Signature Structures is the leading supplier of membrane refurbishment services to fabric structure owners around the world, regardless of the original manufacturer. Despite knowing very little about the original design, Signature was able to reverse engineer the canopies, design new membrane covers, manufacture them and install them on-site, leaving the structures looking brand new and giving the club reliable weather protection for decades to come.
Poulsbo Yacht Club’s members continue to use the structures to protect their valuable vessels and it continues to be one of the favorite features the club offers. Signature continues to work with the club to ensure the longevity and reliability of its weather protection structures.
