It allows easy cleaning of the surface of the material from stains of all kinds (wine, coffee, chocolate, etc.), only with the use of water and absorbent cloth. It does not allow the stain to penetrate the surface of the material and stain it, in a way that would make it difficult to clean, especially if it is applied on a stable base (eg upholstered furniture)
This specification initially indicates the strength and durability of the material in sunlight. That is the ability of the material not to fade in color or not to deteriorate qualitatively from sun exposure. Usually, the materials with this specification, combine the resistance to moisture, water and mold.
It refers to the possibility of the material not to absorb immediately or soon after any liquid that comes in contact, allowing the user to remove the latter in time before the fluid can penetrate the material.
Waterproofing is divided into water-resistant and water-repellent. The first concerns the case mentioned above, while the second concerns the case where a thin, transparent film has been passed on to the material and has covered every possible source of it, so that the liquid cannot penetrate it for as long as it remains on it.
The specification of the slow-burning (known as flame retardant) materials is now a necessary condition for providing legal certificates to accommodations that operate in high standards.
The use of materials with this specification, in case of fire, allows the early extinguish, while at the same time facilitates its work as it minimizes fumes and tears of fire that can cause the spread of fire while ensuring the smooth evacuation of the space to avoid panic.
Furthermore, it saves costs for the companies that choose it since they can insure their asset for a lower price. Nowadays, slow-burning is applied in a much friendlier way for the end-user with a much more interesting aesthetic result and at a much lower cost than in the past. Especially for the spaces moving into the international maritime seas, we provide an IMO certificate.
Antibacterial – Antimicrobial
It refers to the specification of the material not to be affected by bacteria or germs, and it is found mainly in the materials intended for use in sanitary areas, hospitals, etc.
Bacteria and germs are now one of the most critical threats to human life. Their growing resilience has troubled the scientific world. The ability of the material to exterminate them as soon as it comes in contact with them, through electrostatic attraction and collision of positive and negative charges, is an essential contribution to the hygiene of a professional space concerning its visitors.
It concerns the ability of the material, to allow the smooth reflection of the sound inside the space where it is placed, to avoid the annoying reflection and the intense noise.
This specification can absorb 25% to 75% of the sound and diffuse the rest in the space, in a controlled quantity and flow. It is especially recommended in venues for events, conferences, recordings, and even offices.
High abrasion resistance
This specification mainly concerns the upholstery fabrics and refers to the durability of their surface during use. The density of the yarn weave, the weight of the fabric, and its finish after its production, can be critical factors of lower or higher durability.
Especially for professional spaces with intense use, such as hotels, hospitals, offices, etc., the indicative scores exceed 100,000 friction cycles and can reach 350,000 in heavy-duty vinyls.
It concerns to the specification of curtain fabrics that do not allow the unimpeded entry of light but limits it to an extended (90-97%, dimout) or the absolute level (100%, blackout). It is strongly preferred in hotels, hospitals, and more generally in long-stay areas of the visitor that are exposed to intense sunlight.
Especially in high specification units, the use of dimming is a significant issue for the visitor/customer and the existence of this feature is a de
This specification refers to the ability of the material to maintain the temperature of the space inside it, not allowing the heat of the external environment to enter. It is found mainly in curtain fabrics, which enable their application space to remain warm in winter and cool in summer.
Usually, these fabrics have blackout specifications, either partial (90-97%, dimout), or total (100%, blackout).
