Dec '09
Tent and awning owners and manufacturers don't have to sacrifice style or shade just to meet California State Fire Marshall Title 19, National Fire Protection Association (NFPA-701) and Canvas Products Association International (CPAI-84) standards. High-performance, UV-resistant WeatherMax FR from Safety Components now comes in 10 attractive colors: Black, Burgundy, Captain Navy, Forest Green, Light Charcoal, Pacific Blue, Toast, True Red, Yellow and White.

Where resistance to fading and fire is critical, WeatherMax FR is a superior solution-dyed, fire-retardant fabric designed for awnings, tents and other outdoor applications. Tested in the field for more than six years, WeatherMax is a proven performer. It utilizes tightly woven SaturaMax yarns for unmatched dimensional stability and is guaranteed to retain its rich color for at least five years.

Providing superior water resistance, WeatherMax FR has twice the strength and six times the abrasion resistance of acrylic fabrics. A state-of-the-art HydroMax finish ensures it remains breathable to eliminate mold and mildew growth. It also meets FMVSS 302 specifications.
