Patented Hi-Tide boat lifts can handle many styles and sizes of watercraft.

Synergy Between Boat Lift Manufacturer, Electrical Products Distributor and Fiberglass Enclosure Manufacturer Results In Superior Product Offering.

 
Synergy --- different elements working together to produce results not obtainable by any of the elements alone --- is what happens when three companies work together to achieve high-quality results.
 
Fifteen years ago Hi-Tide, Graybar and Stahlin Non-Metallic Enclosures began working together to provide boat lift customers with controls that can survive in very harsh environments including exposure to water, salt, corrosives and ultraviolet rays. Together, the three organizations are able to produce solutions that perform to end-user specifications.
 
Hi-Tide boat lifts are designed and tested to provide years of trouble-free use. Consequently, when Hi-Tide needed to source an enclosure to protect boat lift controls, the company determined that a proactive, synergistic relationship --- including Graybar as the electrical products distributor and Stahlin as the enclosure manufacturer --- was essential to ensure proven performance and ready-availability.
 
Hi-Tide established a relationship with Graybar, a Fortune 500 corporation and one of the largest employee-owned companies in North America. Graybar is a leader in the distribution of high quality electrical, communications and data networking products and related supply management and logistics services. The breadth of Graybar’s product selections and its speed of service are critical to Hi-Tide’s ability to meet commitments to its customers.
 
Many of the enclosures used by Hi-Tide in the past simply did not stand up to harsh environments in which boat lifts and their controls must function. Extensive evaluation led Hi-Tide to Stahlin Non-Metallic Enclosures. All of Stahlin's enclosures are molded from SolarGuard®, a patented sheet molded compound formulation that provides superior molded-in UV resistance. The fiberglass composite formulation protects against corrosion, and reliable gasketing effectively seals out damaging moisture.
 
For 15 years Hi-Tide has successfully protected its controls with Stahlin’s J-Series enclosures. The J Series was developed as an industrial enclosure for harsh, aggressive environments. Originally designed as an electrical junction box for the oil refining and petrochemical industries, the J Series has evolved over the years into a versatile industrial enclosure with varied applications for use from high-end electronics to extreme corrosive applications both indoors and out. The rugged design in combination of over fifty plus years experience has proven to hold extreme reliability in tough environments. Stahlin's J Series enclosures are NEMA rated type 1, 3, 4X, 6P, 12 and UL/cUL/CSA approved.
