Halls & Tents
Modern materials for classic applications
For more than 140 years the company Sattler is working with outdoor textiles which protect humans and goods against weathering. Tents and textile hall constructions are light-weight, partly mobile protection and industrial buildings for versatile use. Since ancient times this function remained the same but of course the materials in use changed.
With the collection “Halls & Tents” Sattler PRO-TEX provides an extensive product portfolio of high-functional, coated fabrics with modern characteristics which take technical requirements for different applications into account.
Product characteristics adapted for applications
The fields of application range from classic event tents, sport halls and industrial warehouses to applications for sun protection or circus tents. Thus also the product specification varies depending on the application.
Below you can find some product characteristics which are relevant for specific applications:
Regulations regarding the burning behavior of the used materials exist for many types of buildings. For this reason, PVC membranes of the range “Halls & Tents” are realised with flame-retardant properties.For the classification of the flame retardancy of a membrane at EU level the transnational norm EN 13501-1 has established. The advantage is obvious: With one certificate projects of all EU member states can be handled. Furthermore, the European norm is already accepted in many non-European countries. For a good reason because not only does the norm evaluate the property of flame retardancy but it also provides information about the smoke development and dropping behavior of the material. Besides, some products also comply with country-specific test standards.
For demanding applications the use of yarns with low-wick finish is recommended. Water can penetrate over cutting edges or damages into coated textiles of common polyester multifilament yarns and spread over a large area. Dirt and microorganisms cause irreversible impurities which have a negative influence on the aesthetics of coated textiles.
The system low-wick is a yarn treatment which restricts microorganisms from penetrating into the inside of the coated textile. If the polyester multifilament yarns have a low-wick finish, they prevent water from penetrating into the textile. Negative influences on functionality and optics are avoided on the long term. Besides regular cleaning, the surface sealing on both sides with acrylic or PVDF lacquer contributes to a long-lasting beautiful appearance.
UV, weather and cold resistance
Membranen "Made in Austria"
All PVC-coated products of the Sattler PRO-TEX GmbH are „made in Austria“. The weaving of the polyester base fabric as well as the coating and lacquering process are conducted in-house. Long-term experience, continuous development as well as quality awareness of all employees characterise the products from Sattler PRO-TEX. In the end, certified management systems for quality and environment according to ISO 9001:2008 or ISO 14001:2004 are the external characteristics for this quality-focused work.
