Tri Vantage Offers New and Improved Firesist™ Fabric

CLEVELAND, OH - Now available at Tri Vantage is the new and improved Firesist™, a fire retardant awning fabric specifically designed for the commercial awning, canopy and shade markets. Available in 12 colors, Firesist is lightweight yet very durable.

“Firesist has been redesigned to offer a more resilient fabric without compromising style and ease of fabrication,” said Drew Nelson, Tri Vantage Awning Products Manager. “The new Firesist provides awning fabricators with a state-of-the-art lightweight, durable fabric that is also fire retardant.”

The new Firesist fabric is woven from high UV and fade resistant, solution dyed fiber that provides superior resistance to weather, stains, mildew and flame. While lightweight, the extremely strong and tear resistant fabric is engineered for ease of fabrication. Firesist’s proprietary coating also helps prolong the life of the fabric and preserves its appearance, while also making it easy to clean.

In addition to improved durability, Firesist fabric is now available in 12 popular colors, including new tweed patterns. These deep, rich colors not only deliver long lasting good looks, they are color transfer resistant.

Backed by a five-year warranty, Firesist is 8.75 ounces per square yard, 60 inches wide and meets the following flame retardant requirements: California State Fire Marshal Title 19; NFPA 701-99, test method II; CPAI-84, Tent walls and roof; FMVSS 302; FAA 25.853 (Aviation); and UFAC Upholstered Furniture, Class 1.
