Fabric Structure Samplings

Christo and Jeanne Claude's Wrapped Reichstag, 1995Picking the right fabric can be the key to everything.

We all know what a piece of wood, brick or glass feels like.

We can go outside and find an example pretty quickly.

What about fabric?

We can look at an awning or tent or think about our umbrella or jacket.

When you start thinking about building a structure out of fabric that provides, shade, last a long time and that you can apply graphics to (just to name a few), there are plenty of different fabrics to choose from.

How do you start?

Here’s my suggestion (if I forgot a manufacturer, let me know):

PTFE (30 year life span, Class A non-combustible fabric, permanent)

Saint Gobain, Chukoh, Verseidag, Taconic, Obeikan, Sefar

PVC (20-25 year life span, Fire Retardant)

Serge Ferrari, Seaman, Mehler, Naizil

Ask for a sample and see what you get and how fast you get it.

Let me know if I can help.

Customer Service and being able to touch and feel the fabric is a great first step.
