ATF-SG “Silent Glide” boat shade is SureShade’s next-generation automated retractable sunshade system with silent glide technology. ATF-SG uses the same patented telescoping framework of the current ATF electric shade – it is simply much quieter.
Key benefits include:
- Silent shade operation – 85% less noise
- 80% power requirement reduction
- Same look & feel – seamless OEM transition at factory or upgrade for existing clients
Available now for factory installations, SureShade’s Silent Glide shade is the only marine-grade, telescoping shade system proudly made in the U.S. and market-proven by top builders.
Meeting the design challenge of a quieter shade head on, SureShade made modifications to the internal drive system of their flagship ATF Automated Boat Shade product so that extending or retracting their electric shade is now virtually unnoticeable to the human ear.
The design modifications come with other significant improvements as well.
New ATF-SG systems operate with 80% power requirement reduction - consisting of a single power source which draws 3 AMPS @ 12VDC (single 5AMP fuse) rather than drawing from two power sources that combine at 14 AMPS @ 12VDC (single 15AMP fuse & another 5AMP Fuse) with original system. The new ATF-SG system also has the ability to operate at 10.5VDC.
ATF-SG has the same exact look and feel of the current ATF shade with comparable performance and functionality. The transition to the new Silent Glide Shade is seamless for builders and can be supplied for current boat models that offer the shade without any impact to current installation, engineering or new product development efforts.
Existing boat models equipped with SureShade ATF automated shade can easily be upgraded to the new ATF-SG silent glide. Upgrades will require the purchase of a new controller, wiring harness and both actuators. Installation is a direct fit with no other modifications needed.
For boat models not previously factory-equipped, SureShade ATF-SG Silent Glide shade is also available as an aftermarket installation.
