The 14, 16, and 18 oz. premium vinyl film we use for our round/oval tents was developed especially for us and has been improved many times since 1980. The 18 oz. premium was designed especially for commercial pole tents that endure rough use and inclement weather in remote areas. It is also ideal for other tough applications requiring exceptional strength in a medium weight fabric. The 14, 16 and 19 oz vinyl we use for our square/rectangle tents is of the highest quality.
Its strength-to-weight ratio is greater because pound for pound, the polyester inside the vinyl is about 100% stronger than cotton. It possesses excellent adhesion, and protected as it is, retains that strength for many years. It is durable because it is exceptionally resistant to abrasion, holing, chemicals and grease. It is economical because of its long useful life.
