Product Description –Architec 400® is an extremely strong UV stabilized extra heavy duty knitted shadecloth that has been designed for large commercial tension membrane structures and shade sails.
Features –Architec 400® is a 400 gsm 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® incorporates the latest in ultra violet stabilizers from CIBA Specialty Products. These new generation stabilizers extend the UV life of the fabric so that Polyfab USA can now offer a 12 year warranty – the best industry warranty available (conditions apply). These new UV stabilizers also provide improved color consistency and colorfastness. Flame resistant to ASTM E-84 Class 1 or A rating.
UV Protection –Architec 400® contains no flat tape. Instead it is made from a combination of monofilament yarn and our new Ovalon™ monofilament yarn. Ovalon™ provides excellent strength and has minimal stretch in both the Weft and Warp direction of the stitchpattern and will maintain its tension. It also provides very high UV protection of 90% and over. With Ovalon™ you get the strength of monofilament yarns combined with the UV protection of tape.
Knitted Lock-Stitch Construction – Shade sails using Architec 400® should be well designed and engineered to hold the fabric under the tension it deserves. The fabric should be supported by using appropriate strength poles and footings as determined by a professional engineer, and fabricated and installed by a qualified contractor in accordance with local building codes.
Heat Set – Architec 400® has been pre-stented to reduce shrinkage and improve the stability of the fabric. This process improves the workability of the fabric during the fabrication and installation of the shade sails or shade structure.
Weight: 12 oz. per square yard
Size: 12.5 feet (width) x 165 feet (length) straight rolls (not folded)
