W. L. Gore & Associates and Sefar AG announced they have entered into a strategic alliance to produce and market TENARA Architectural Fabrics. This alliance combines Gore's patented technologies and innovative expanded PTFE (ePTFE) fibers with Sefar's expertise in weaving and their strong presence in the architectural fabric market.

"Sefar's interest in selling TENARA Architectural Fabrics is a tribute to the quality of the product and the success of our innovation," said Matt Murphy, Product Specialist for Gore's ePTFE Weaving Fibers.

"Extending our product range with TENARA Architectural Fabrics is a major step forward to realize Sefar's vision to be the worldwide leading and innovative partner of choice for uniquely aesthetic and functional textile architecture," said Ingo Thalhammer, Business Unit Manager for Sefar Architecture Solutions.

TENARA Architectural Fabrics will be produced exclusively by Sefar under license from Gore. It will remain the same unique, high quality fabric that is the choice for innovative installations worldwide, such as the retractable roof over the Centre Court at Wimbledon. TENARA Architectural Fabrics, one of the most recognizable and successful fabrics for use in architectural applications, provide a unique combination of aesthetics and durability. With the broadest range of natural light transmission and the ability to fold or drape like no other building textile alternative, it is the ideal choice to create, protect and extend the usefulness of outdoor spaces.
