Recreation textiles distributor advises of importance of right fabric choices for gymnastic, trampoline and play facilities
Ensuring that appropriate fabrics and textiles are chosen for gymnastic, trampoline, play and related facilities can be difficult choice, but Ricky Richards, a distributor of recreation textiles for over 35 years, has come up with three key tips to for operators to make the right choice for your product and application.
Richards advises “when it comes to sporting and leisure products such as inflatable castles, trampolines, jumping pillows and training equipment, you know that wear and tear are inevitable due to repeated use.”
With this in mind, he recommends considering the following when purchasing fabric for facilities, events and project.
Look for a PVC Fabric
Richards explains “PVC fabrics have benefits such as UV protection, waterproof resistance, fire retardancy and, more importantly, are more resistant to wear and tear than other fabrics.
This is achieved by the treatments added in the manufacturing of the textile itself.
Richards recommends that when selecting the colour of a fabrics, bear in mind a wide range of colours according to the business corporate image. This will allow the ability to build brand awareness among target audiences with little to no effort.
Source from a Trusted Supplier
Richards adds “it is essential to install a fabric that you can rely on. High-quality fabrics that are easy to maintain ensures the safety and protection of both the people and the product. It is a bonus to find a fabric that is supported by a warranty. This will give you the confidence in its longevity and shows the supplier believes in the fabric too.
“Remember to keep in mind important features such as strength and how the fabric will hold up during all types of weather conditions. Attention to higher quality will help guarantee the durability of your fabric.”
Richards’ company Technical Textiles distributes fabrics that are specifically manufactured to perform well under Australian weather conditions.
