Legacy Building Solutions Unveils New ExxoTec Fabric
US-based engineered fabric shelter provider Legacy Building Solutions is pleased to announce its latest customised tension fabric, ExxoTec™.
ExxoTec is a premium PVC fabric with superior strength and performance characteristics and a highly competitive price.
There are two types of ExxoTec fabric available: 27oz ExxoTec Elite and 19oz ExxoTec Pro.
Both varieties are available in five colors: white, navy blue, green, tan and grey. The per-square-foot cost of ExxoTec is similar to competitive PE and PVC fabrics.
Legacy Building Solutions general manager Nathan Stobbe said: “With ExxoTec, Legacy is able to offer a premium fabric at a price that creates exceptional value for our customers.
“Customers won’t have to choose between the highest-quality fabric and the most cost-effective fabric.”
As part of Legacy’s quality control testing, ExxoTec fabric was independently tested for factors such as initial strength and strength after weathering.
ExxoTec Elite is twice as strong as 12oz PE fabric, and ExxoTec Pro is 41% stronger than 12oz PE, and it retains nearly all of its strength after years of exposure to the elements.
Stobbe emphasised the importance of ExxoTec’s characteristics of strength and longevity: “Combined with Legacy’s patented attachment system and rigid steel frame, ExxoTec is strong enough to withstand years of daily use.
“On a Legacy Building Solutions Premier building, ExxoTec Elite carries a 25-year warranty and ExxoTec Pro carries a 20-year warranty.”
In addition to independent testing, Legacy Building Solutions performed a strength test on the ExxoTec Elite fabric.
Legacy suspended a fabric panel on a steel frame and drove a 10,100lb skid loader on the fabric.
After the test, the fabric showed no sign of damage from the weight of the loader or the friction of the tracks.
