No flat tape, maximum UV protection
Architec 400 ® contains no flat tape. It is made from a combination of monofilament yarn and our proprietary OvalonTM monofilament yarn. OvalonTM provides high strength and minimal stretch in both the Weft and Warp direction of the stitch pattern, maintaining tension. It also offers over 90% UV protection.
With OvalonTM you get the strength of monofilament yarns combined with the UV protection of tape.
Built for high tension
Shadesails 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 made and installed by a qualified contractor in accordance with local building codes.
Easy to work with
Architec 400® is pre-stentered 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 shadesails or shade structure.
