Custom Fabric Engineering at Convention CenterSo you’ve bought that house, that boat, or you need a tent for a special occasion and now you need an awning, a cover, or a specially designed fabric product for your backyard. But, where do you get the right product?

Most of the time, we end up going to the local store or surfing the internet to find a cheap, premade piece. But did you know you can customize your fabric products?

You might be asking yourself, why would you even bother looking into customization? The answer is simple; you want to ensure that you’re not wasting your hard earned money and that your purchase not only lasts, but is dependable. You also want to make sure your family, home, boat, and guests are protected in a structurally sound fabric product that offers mildew and ultraviolet ray resistant qualities.

So, what does custom fabric engineering mean anyways? Custom fabric engineered products are made and designed by a team of specialists – like Herculite Inc. – who take into consideration your needs and preferences while creating a product that matches the length, size, and shape of the project.

These specialty fabric products can be customized for a variety of projects including but not limited to: Agricultural, Automotive, Canopies, Covers, Marine, Structures, Military, Recreational Products, and more.

Herculite provides many of these custom products and includes some of the industrial fabric’s best known brand names, including: Herculite 80, 90, Architent® and Architent WideSide®

When installing an awning for your home, you want to make sure that the design, color, and fabric all fit the home’s specifications and your taste. If you try installing your own awning, you run the risk of damaging the exterior of your home. And you might even be installing fabric that’s not conducive to your home’s environment. Remember, some different environments require different fabrics.

For example, Seattle versus Miami; these two cities have vastly different climates and installing the right fabric product is essential. You don’t want your fabric product to develop mildew or be susceptible to tears. That’s why choosing a company like Herculite to help your fabric choices is so important. Your investment should last and customizing your fabric product is a great way to ensure your money doesn’t get washed down the drain.

You might find that premade pieces don’t fit your needs in terms of size. For example, tents for parties come in a variety of shapes, types, and sizes. The fabrics used in these tents also come in a variety of options. Choosing the right one can make-or-break your investment.

That’s why customizing your tent project is a great option. You can choose a fabric that is UV ray resistant, has low cold temperature flexibility, is mildew resistant, and easy to clean. Herculite Inc. offers a custom specialty fabric with all those qualities called Architent which utilizes the company’s proprietary PVC formulation. Herculite also offers a variety of other custom tent fabrics. Visit http://www.herculite.com/tent_and_structures.htm#custom for more information.

Remember, while custom designed fabrics can cost a little more, it’s well worth the investment. You don’t want that tent, marine cover, or awning fabric to fall apart or allow harmful UV rays to damage the material or product your protecting, much less your family or friends.

So when you’re thinking about your next fabric product, remember you can customize your project and ensure you have the best fit with the right color, and size. For more information contact Herculite Inc. today at 1-800772-0036 or visit www.herculite.com.
