This flexible yet durable vinyl is ideal when you need a tough product, but you need to be able to shape it as well. Cut, sew, or tape this vinyl product to create a more flexible window covering. Use 30 gauge vinyl as a flexible alternative to 40 gauge vinyl in boat windows, clear curtains, or protective coverings for outdoor gear. Cut it, sew it, or tape it together and it will last over time. Our clear vinyl lets the light in and keeps the weather out. Wipe it with a damp cloth, and it looks as good as new.

What gauge to enclose a porch for the winter?
Al R on Nov 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You can use pretty much any gauge. It depends on how you're planning on enclosing the porch. For thicker options, try 30 or 40 gauge. The 30 is a little thinner and more flexible, and the 40 is a bit thicker and stiffer. They're rated for temperatures as low as -29 and -30 degrees respectively. We suggest ordering samples if you want to compare different gauges.

I have several Questions on the 30g. 1) How hard is it to sew with a regular home type sewing machine and is the 16 needle that you pointed out in the 20g still OK or do I need a larger one and a commercial sewing machine ? 2) What type of thread would I need if I have to sew seams. 3) Should the seams be folded over like doing regular material seams? 4) Do you also sell design ideas for closing in a screened porch and such? 5) Do you sell the hardware needed to close in porches?
Mardee H on Nov 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Adding on to Joann's excellent answer, for use outdoors, you would want to use our Coats & Clark Extra Strong Upholstery Thread. This could also be used indoors, but all purpose polyester thread would also work. (see below)

How you do the seams depends on what you're making. For a screened porch, overlapping the edges and sewing would work, but if the pieces are too big to fit, a regular seam is fine.

We don't sell anything else related to screen porches. Good luck!

I am really liking this vinyl so far. I made a structure of 1x3 lumber and pinched the vinyl in between. The structure was 7 feet by 10.8 feet. I want to block wind at certain times, especially in the winter.

great product, as advertised
This product is just the thickness I need for shielding the bottom of my workbenches from wood dust, and whatever else flies in the air. My only disappointment, and it's my own misunderstanding, but I was hoping it would come in rolls 36" tall, instead of 54", then it would have been perfect height. But it was only a matter of a few more cuts. I would recommend.
