Architectural OutlinesSep 06, 2013

We're very excited to introduce our latest outdoor collection Outlines. It was designed by Marie Mees, an award winning designer who has worked with numerous international brands and architects (see Arte's Maison 01 collection for another example of her work). Outlines features her signature look of rigorous geometrics, structured weaves and a pared-back colour palette, which makes for a very distinctive and sophisticated collection. 


Of special note is Outlines's composition: It's been manufactured using FLYER® yarn, a solution dyed polyolefin backed with polyurethane which ensures extremely high technical specifications and excellent durability. Here's a quick rundown of what this amazing yarn offers...

High UV resistance / anti-mould / hyper allergenic / anti pill / excellent Martindale ratings / 100% recycleable / breathable / resistant to water absorption / thermo dynamic (cool to touch in summer and warm in winter).

Flyer® fabrics are also very energy efficient to produce, using the least amount of energy when to compared to all other synthetic fibres. These fabrics are also light and dry extremely quickly. Finally Flyer® yarn is OEKO-TEX® 100 (Class 1) approved, ensuring minimum use of chemicals, no harmful residues left on the cloth and certifies the use of low allergenic dyes.

Given all these amazing properties Outlines is suitable for a broad range of upholstery applications... Outdoor / Aged-care / Commercial / Resort / Residential / Marine / Healthcare / Hospitality.

Because of the features listed above it's important to follow special sewing instructions to achieve a water proof product:

1.  It is recommended to use bonded polyester thread, such as Terko Satin, polished poly cotton, metric size 50
2.  It is important to use a small gauge needle to minimise the size of the holes. Needle size 16, sharp, using a stitch length of 3 per centimetre.
3.  To ensure a perfect water proof seam use an appropriate sealant to seal needle holes, e.g. Brella Guard. This should be done at the time of manufacturing on the inside of the seam.
4. 'Breathers' are required to allow ventilation and avoid 'ballooning' when the item is in use. A breather could be an eyelet or a small area of mesh. Breathers also prevent mould growth on the fill. Place breathers in an area not exposed to the weather.

These instructions will be sent out with each roll, along with cleaning instructions.

We hope you like it. Samples are with our Sales Team and in all our showrooms - check Outlines out.
