StripFix® Fabric Cladding
All structures are clad with tough PVC impregnated polyester fabric.
The sheets are sectioned into 2m strips. Aluminium rails fixed to the tubular steel hoops allow PVC fabric strips to be simply slid into position using Keder beading and tensioned at the foundations. This STRIPFIX® system allows the fabric to be easily applied to the framework, protecting against weather damage and creating a highly-tensioned finish. Individual strips allow cost-effective maintenance of the fabric, and the ease of erection and attachment allows the cladding to be replaced easily in sections if required.
The PVC fabric has a life expectancy of up to 25 years depending on environmental conditions. The fabric is tested with respect to tensile strength, elongation, tearing strength, bursting strength, coating adhesion and resistance to flexing. The fabric is 100% waterproof and flame retardant to BS 7837:1996 (2015) and German DIN 4102 (B1).
