Rigid Fabrics – Woven of solid wires in both the warp and weft dimensions for a stiff fabric in all directions. Rigid fabrics are typically transported flat and framed. Ideal for interior walls, ceilings, handrails, or infills.
Flexible Cable Fabrics – Woven of precision wire cable in the warp direction and a solid wire in the weft direction giving flexibility to the fabric in one direction. These fabrics can be transported in rolled form and are tensioned over a span. Ideal for large facades, solar management, parking structures, or room partitions.
Multi-Flex Fabrics – Woven with cable or fine wires in both directions giving these fabrics multi-flexibility. These fabrics are transported in roll form and tensioned over a span or draped. Ideal for ceilings, column covers, walls, and veils.
