Trivantage® is your one-stop shop for Polyfab USA products including Polytex®, Comtex® and Architec 400®. These shade sail fabrics are manufactured with high-density polyethylene (HDPE) for extra strength and durability. All three fabric lines are lead- and phthalate-free and pass ASTME E-84 (Class A).

Polytex is produced by knitting monofilament and tape together using Raschel knit construction that ensures the fabric will not tear or fray when cut or pierced by sharp objects. With UV protection and a high strength-to-weight ratio, Polytex is ideal for small-scale shade sail structures.

Designed for large tension membrane structures and architectural shade sails, Comtex is recommended for larger commercial installations. The high-quality fabric has passed the NFPA 701-2010 and is UV protected.

Architec 400’s shade sail fabric is made using a combination of monofilament yarn and Polyfab’s Ovalon™ monofilament yarn for maximum strength and minimal stretch. With a UV protection of 90 percent or greater, Architec 400 is the perfect option for shade structures.

Watch Trivantage account representative Keith Purves demonstrate the use of the Engel Hot Knife, a professional tool used to cut and cauterize woven goods in one motion. The Engel Hot Knife cuts and seals the fabric’s edges to prevent fraying and unraveling. Designed for precise cutting, the tool also features a headlight that illuminates the cutting area. Customers can purchase the tool with an optional cutting foot, which helps support the fabric while preventing damage to the cutting surface.
