PVC Accuracy and quality
There is a common misconception that anything made from fabric has fairly wide tolerances. With clothing this may be the case but marquee covers have to fit an Aluminium frame. This frame will have been made to normal engineering standards – probably accurate to 1mm. As a result, the covers must be made to the same level of accuracy otherwise the completed structure will look ‘baggy’ and untidy or – worse – the covers won’t fit and it will not be possible to complete the marquee.
Strength and Waterproofing
Making joints, hems and seams in PVC
Because of the dual nature of its construction, PVC fabric can be welded or sewn to make a joint.
Which method is used depends on the application and the practicalities of manufacture. Fittings are usually sewn into place and long joints are nearly always welded. If the joint needs to be waterproof then it has to be welded.
Special PVC fabric glue is also used in certain circumstances.
When sewing the thread used is heavy duty Polyester, not conventional sewing cotton. This thread is UV stable and rot proof. It will last as long as the covers.
