Why did you choose this?
I am trying to replace my two lounge chairs with the fabric will it work?
Would this product keep bugs out? I want to custom make some window screens for my vehicle with something soft that won't scratch my vehicle's paint. Are the holes in this small enough to keep insects away?
BEST ANSWER: You could use this fabric but we recommend something with a better visibility like insect screening or noseeum netting.
I make awnings for small vintage trailers. I need a fabric that will provide shade( for a side panel) that wind will pass thru....Is this the type fabric I need?, that wind can pass thru...?
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it will work well I believe. The application I use Phifertex for, needs to be breathable so wind will pass through for you too.
How much light does this keep out?
BEST ANSWER: It does keep out some sunshine. However, I wanted it to keep out A LOT of sunshine, so I put two layers of blue up between my overhead beams on my deck. That wasn't enough to suit me, so I added a layer of this same "fabric" on top of the two blue layers. When you look up from my deck, you see blue, but if you look at it from the roof of the house, you see black. It's working quite well. I just folded the edges over to go down the beams and screwed the fabric to the beam. No sewing involved.
I need a mesh to go in front or back of a decorative wrought iron porch railing so that my cat can't get between the vertical rails. Would this work?
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I think it would not only be strong because it can be stapled , but it also looks nice...would be easy to clean and most of all it wouldn't be scratchy to touch like screen wire would be. It will allow light in and comes in many colors. Good luck with your project.
I'm part of a live action sword fight demonstration group that uses sharp blades. Would this material serve as good protection from accidents?
BEST ANSWER: We would not recommend this fabric for that purpose. It cuts easily with scissors so would probably not hold up to sharp blades. The closest possible option we have would be ballistic nylon which was originally designed as protection from shrapnel. We can't recommend it for your use, but it's probably the toughest material we carry.
Can you get water proof ?
BEST ANSWER: This product will not absorb water, but it is a mesh fabric so water will go through.
BEST ANSWER: The manufacturer does not have information about this, so we would think that means it isn't.
Looking to replace the back fabric on a wheelchair & cushion to make it cooler & breathable. Is it strong enough?
BEST ANSWER: I think the fabric itself is strong enough. The risk would be with the sewn seam coming loose. If you could get someone like a shoe repair man sew it with heavy duty thread it might work. The fabric itself is very strong. How long it would hold would also depend on the weight of the person in the wheel chair. Personally I don't think it would be worth the risk to the person in the chair. The seam might start to tear in a place that you didn't notice and the person could fall.
is this fabric puncture proof?
BEST ANSWER: No. It can be cut with scissors or rotary blade so can be punctured as well.
I wonder if a bird pooped on this fabric if you could just shake off the bird poop?
BEST ANSWER: No, it would have to be washed off.
Is this fabric bleach resistant? Is this fabric suitable for making hair salon aprons?
BEST ANSWER: No, it has holes in it and the small hair particles would go right through.
How strong is the material ?
BEST ANSWER: It is pretty durable. We recommend ordering a sample to see if it would work for your project.
I am looking for a rubber coated black vinyl mesh with approx 1\4" square holes (4x4 per inch). This would be used to repair the zippered door on a portable pet home. Do you have something similar to this?
BEST ANSWER: We don't have anything with holes that large. The closest would be our pet screen.
Is this printable material?
BEST ANSWER: You might be able to print on this, but we do not advise using a heat press.
Will this material repel UV rays?
BEST ANSWER: It's fade resistant, so to a certain extent yes.
I plan on using this fabric to make panels to hang framed photographs on as it is stretched for panels on my my canopy at art shows. Will this fabric work for this purpose?
BEST ANSWER: It should as long as the frames aren't too heavy. The fabric may give in places where the frames are hung. We recommend ordering a sample to be sure that it will work for your project.
Does the fabric block light?
BEST ANSWER: Not totally, it is more of a shade fabric.
Would I be able to see through this? I have heard of people using this kind of mesh in masks to make it hard for people to see in, but easy to see out.
BEST ANSWER: Placing any type of object in your field of vision presents a potential safety hazard. With that being said, you would have to have this fabric very close to your eyes to be able to see through it. This fabric is also pretty sturdy. Depending on the type of mask you wanted to create, perhaps power mesh might be a better alternative. You can order samples of both to compare and see which will work best for your project!
would this work as a support for chair seat cushion?
I need to replace the window screens on a boat bimini cover. Will this work for that purpose?
I have been making totes for friends from the Phifertex in black, red, green, yellow, gray, and royal blue for many years. It allows the totes the ability to stand on their own when being filled. My friends LOVE them.
