ARCHITEC 400™ is a 400gsm high density polyethylene (HDPE) fabric with an excellent weight to strength ratio. It has very good tensile strength and is extremely resistant to tearing.
ARCHITEC 400™ is an extremely strong Knitted Shadecloth that has been designed for very large Commercial Tension Membrane Structures and Shadesails.
By the very size and nature of large tension structures, ARCHITEC 400™ offers the strongest fabric available in the market, and it has the best weight to strength ratio over competitor fabrics.
ARCHITEC 400™ offers up 96.5 % U.V. protection factors and incorporates the very latest in Ultra Violet stabilisers from Ciba Speciality Products that provide for the extended UV life of the fabric, and allows Polyfab Australia to provide a twelve year (12 yr) UV Warranty (conditions apply).
Most of our competitors can only offer UV protection factors ‘up to 90%’.
The new UV stabilizers also provide improved colour consistency and colour fastness.
The fabric’s performance is only as good as the quality of the design, engineering and support structures used to hold the fabric under the tension that it deserves.
This process improves the workability of the fabric during the fabrication and installation of the shadesail or shade structure.
