Tent & Tensile Fabric Choices

Lightweight Manufacturing Inc. will create panels with any industrial fabric. The most commonly used fabrics are:

PVC coated polyester fabric: a high tenacity polyester scrim is coated on both sides with a PVC compound that provides weather resistance, smooth surface, color, and protects the polyester fibers against UV degradation. The higher quality architectural fabrics have a topcoat to protect the PVC coating and improve the cleanliness of the surface. An alternative style is PVC mesh.

Polyethylene fabric: high density PE tapes are woven and coated with low density PE to provide a weathertight surface. The composition is modified to provide the fire rating and UV protection that is desired.
