What gauge would work good that's flexible and durable for table cover for commercial use?
BEST ANSWER: The 8, 10, or 12 gauge clear vinyls are all flexible yet durable. We recommend ordering samples to determine which gauge would work best for you.
We currently have clear vinyl panels around our patio which are fitted to a frame and held on the frame by a rubber spine which fits into a 1/8 in groove around the perimeter much like the screen is held in place. The panels are 40 in wide by 7 ft tall. Cannot measure the thickness of the vinyl. What thickness would you suggest we use to replace these originals. They were originally installed in 1991 and are beginning to crack and split. These vinyl panels fit over the screens and are held in place by clips . Also, where could we obtain new spine material?
BEST ANSWER: We recommend ordering a samples to see which is closest to the existing clear vinyl. The 6 to 12 gauge range is a good starting point. 4 gauge is probably too thin and anything more than 12 might not work well with the spline. Sorry, we don't have any suggestions about where to find new spline.
Can I use this guage to sew and make winter frost covers?
BEST ANSWER: Depends on what the frost covers are for. The vinyl wouldn't work well for covering plants because it's not breathable, but it would likely be fine for other applications. This 6 gauge is fairly thin, which might be what you're looking for, but if you want to compare other gauges, we suggest ordering samples.
Will this gauge of vinyl work to sew on a sewing machine for frost covers?
BEST ANSWER: This 6 gauge clear vinyl sews up great on a regular sewing machine. The vinyl can be a little sticky, so putting a piece of tissue paper under it as you sew would make it slide through easier. You can just tear off the paper after.
can the 6 gauge, if sewn onto cotton fabric, be put in washer / dryer?

Best store ever.
The best price, i was looking to cover my dining room chairs, a local store wanted $25 a chair, it would have cost $150. I ordered the vinyl from the Fabric Store, for less than a fraction of the other store. I got it in less than a week and it was excellent quality.

The order was timely and the service personnel were very helpful. My issue is with the vinyl itself. There are folds, creases or lines in it as I am installing it that seem to be from the roll packaging. Maybe those lines, etc will clear out as it hangs, but I had hoped for a better initial look.
