ARCHITECTURAL FABRICS - Shelter or Tarpaulin

Texene's latest innovative temporary architectural fabrics (shelter or tarpaulin applications) are designed keeping the following five key points in the fore-front:

  1. Weight of the fabric while it is suspended
  2. Natural forces while in use
  3. Degradation due to weather
  4. Provide natural lighting without any additional energy
  5. Safety (flame retardant, strength to weight ratio)

Our research and development team has come up with a unique composition olefin slit film, made with quality resin and value added additives to achieve the unique properties as per the requirements. In addition, our manufacturing team uses modern weaving machines with up-to- date peripherals to reduce the stress and strain of slit film without damaging its intended properties during extrusion and is extrusion coated on a state of the art wide-coating machine. Texene woven fabric has consistent desirable properties across the warp (machine) & weft (fill) directions. Our fabric is replacing the traditional canvas or coated PVC. We will manufacture the fabric as per your requirements for color, thickness, strength, print and any added properties with other options.
