Fabric Choices for Industrial Panels

Industrial Fabric Panels

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

PVC-Coated Polyester Fabric: A tenacity polyester scrim coats both sides with a PVC compound providing weather resistance, smooth surface, and color, and protects the polyester yarns against UV degradation. Additionally, The higher-quality architectural fabrics have a topcoat protecting the PVC coating and improving the cleanliness of the surface. An alternative style is PVC mesh.
