SNAP-TEX Stretched Fabric Panel System from AH Décor

Features & Benefits

SNAP-TEX track is a co-extrusion 'pvc' with unique twin features, interlocking jaws and ever flexible hinge. These features allow for unlimited flexing for ease of installation, while the interlocking, bias tensioned jaw allows for superior fabric grip.

This feature is especially important over time, as competitive "friction fit systems" tend to relax. Friction fit systems are prone to fabric pulling out due to pedestrian hand pressure, as well as the hand and equipment pressure applied in the cleaning process.

Fabric can be stretched as tightly as needed with no slippage. Single panels measuring over 30metres have been successfully installed. Because the fabric is not adhered to the substrate as in pre-manufacture panels, a SNAP-TEX installation can be cleaned using traditional upholstery cleaning methods.

SNAP-TEX stretched fabric panel system has all the following features:

  • Damage resistant components require no maintenance
  • No limit to the size or shape of panel
  • Perfect tolerance around all architectural situations
  • No gaps, sagging or mis-fitting fabric
  • Conforms to concave & convex curves
  • Easy and economical 'Fabric Replacement', with no damage to the mounted track
  • Fabric can be cleaned on site, or removed for external cleaning then refitted.
  • Flexibility in design allows economies in panel configuration
  • When planning the design, work to the following axiom - "the bigger the panel, the less SNAP-TEX, the more economical the design"
  • Decorative trims can be easily incorporated into the design
  • Most durable in public areas - DOES NOT PULL OUT UNDER PEDESTRIAN PRESSURE
  • Inherently impact resistant
  • Accepts a wide range of fabric thicknesses.
