Materials > PVC Polyester
Most commonly used in the construction of tensile structures is PVC coated polyester. PVC polyester is chosen not only for its excellent strength, flexibility and translucency, but also for its impressive design life of 20+ years.
PVC polyester is mainly used for beautifully shaped tensile fabric structures, however its wide range of colours and suitability for printing also makes it ideal for banners. Because PVC polyester can be folded, it’s suitable for both temporary and retractable structures.
The PVC polyester coating includes UV stabilisers, fire retardant additives, colouring and anti-fungicides and it can be fully recycled – making this a well-rounded fabric.
PVC polyester is used on structures all over the world and in every environment. Applications include: covered walkways, entrance features, outdoor classrooms, play areas, stadiums, event spaces, brise soleil.
PVC polyester continues to be developed with enhanced coating and lacquers which have increased the design lifespan significantly in the last few years.
