Get to Know Phifertex® Vinyl Mesh

Flame Retardant

Phifertex fabrics are designed with nontoxic, halogen-free flame retardance that meets the following fire standards:

  • ASTM E84-07
  • California Flammability Regulation (Bulletin 117, Section E)
  • FMVSS 302.
  • NFPA No. 101 Class A Rating

Mold & Mildew Resistant

Phifertex vinyl mesh fabrics are water resistant and highly breathable. This makes them fast-drying, which is the first step in preventing mold and mildew. They are also treated with added antimicrobial protection against stain and odor causing bacteria, mold and mildew. Best of all? These vinyl mesh fabrics clean up easily with just a soft rag and mild soap.

Abrasion & UV Resistant

With high abrasion and UV resistance ratings, Phifertex vinyl mesh fabrics are durable enough to stand up to the outdoors. You can be confident that your sling chairs, awnings and roller shades won’t wear and fray over time and repeated use. And since the fabric has its own version of SPF, it is less likely to fade with exposure to the sun.
