Ballistic Nylon Industrial Fabrics

Ballistic nylon is a type of industrial fabric designed for maximum durability and abrasion resistance. The fabric is a multifilament high tenacity, 2X2 basket weave nylon fabric. Ballistic nylon fabrics are the top-performing choice for any application where strength and abrasion resistance are a top priority. The weave used to make this fabric also makes it highly resistant to tears in all directions.

History of Ballistic Fabrics

Ballistic industrial fabrics go back to the Vietnam war era when it was used by the military as anti-fragmentation jackets. Multiple layers of the fabric were laminated together to prevent exploding shrapnel, gunfire, fragmentation and other heavy impacts.

Eventually, the armed forces realized that while ballistic nylon fabrics provided a high level of protection, it didn’t protect against heavy artillery. As a result, the military discontinued its use soon after. The material then made its way to the consumer market in the 1980s. Today, its strong and durable nature makes it an extremely in-demand fabric for a variety of products across many different industries.

Truck Tarps and Covers for the Winter Season

Protect Your Customers’ Investments

This time of year, it’s critical for your customers to have truck covers and tarps that they can rely on. The snow, sleet, and rain in the winter months can cause a considerable amount of damage while transporting goods. Without a truck tarp, transported goods can be damaged or even destroyed, costing your customers in lost time, revenue, and a lowered reputation. The best way to prevent such destruction is to protect your customers’ investments with a quality-made cover or tarp. This will ensure that the transported cargo arrive to their destination in the same state that they left in.

Truck tarps will protect your customers’ cargo from all types of external elements. As a result, long distance journeys during adverse weather conditions won’t damage the goods being transported. This is because our high-quality tarpaulins have the strength and durability to withstand all that Mother Nature can throw at them. Furthermore, using a truck tarp will allow drivers to secure their load for their safety as well as the safety of other motorists during transport. We offer two different options for truck tarps, including Lumber Hauler Tarps and Steel Hauler Tarps.

Lumber Hauler Tarps

Our lumber tarps are manufactured with the highest quality fabrics and can cover any size rig. All vinyl seams are heat sealed and all of the hems are double lock stitched. These tarps are also available in any of our fine coated vinyl selection or with a combination of vinyl weights. Additionally, our standard tarps are 18 oz. vinyl coated fabric.

Steel Hauler Tarps

Our steel hauler tarps are available in the highest quality vinyl coated fabrics or the 15 oz. water resistant canvas. All seams are double lock stitched. Also, just like our lumber hauler tarps, this option also can cover any size rig your customers need.

Accessories Available

  • Rubber Tarp Straps
  • Cargo Restraint Equipment
  • Patch Kits
  • Reinforced Poly Repair Tape

Athletic covers are incredibly important, but in general we tend to not think about them.

Mauritzon offers high quality athletic covers for gymnasium floors and fields as well as martial arts, MMA and boxing rings.

Gymnasium Floor & Field Covers

Using athletic covers can save your customers a lot of time and money. They can protect their fields from damage during large events.

We also offer covers for gymnasium floors that will protect against wear and tear that can occur with hosting non-athletic events such as a graduation or dance.

More Consumers “Living Outdoors” Combined with Increased Boat Sales Mean More Demand for Marine Fabrics

For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, we can finally say that Outdoor Living Imagesummer is officially here this month… and, it’s about time! It’s time to put away all remaining signs of this past winter and spring, and start enjoying some outdoor living for a refreshing change. According to the latest reports and trends, manufacturers in the marine industry, and in all industries that serve outdoor living markets, can look forward to increased business this summer.

Today’s consumers are heading outdoors. One recent report says, “The concept of ‘outdoor living’ is an increasingly popular trend that involves extending your indoor space to the outside… ‘bringing the indoors out.’” Another report on BobVila.com also talks about the outdoor living trend, saying, “Homeowners have always sought to live in harmony with nature. But whereas the trend used to be toward bringing the outdoors in, many today are doing the opposite—situating traditionally ‘indoor’ comforts onto the deck, porch, or patio.” But, it’s not just outdoor living at home that will be popular this summer. Consumers will be heading out on the water – lakes, rivers, oceans and bays – for some outdoor recreation, too.

All marine industry indicators are pointing in a positive direction, Marine Fabrics Imageand saying boating will be big this summer! The National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) says a record number of Americans are “getting on the water (89 million in 2013 – the most recent figure available).” Powerboat sales are on the rise. The NMMA reports that sales of outboard, stern drive, and jet boats are expected to increase again this year. This increase applies to new and pre-owned powerboats, personal watercrafts, and sailboats. It’s estimated that more than 955,000 pre-owned boats were sold in the U.S. in 2013, and this year’s sales numbers are expected to top that.

The combination of more consumers “living outdoors” and increased boat sales means that there will be increased demand for marine fabrics. The Bob Vila report, quoted above, continued to say, “Thanks to advances in all-weather materials, furniture and accessories are now available in so many shapes, sizes and styles, you can decorate outdoor living spaces in much the same way that you would any room in the home.”

Whether you’re designing outdoor spaces, or simply covering and protecting your boat, you can find a wide assortment of marine fabrics at Mauritzon. We are wholesale manufacturers of industrial textile products and wholesale distributors of textiles, hardware, and findings. In fact, since 1888, we have been one of the nation’s largest, most diversified, industrial textile wholesale manufacturers and distributors. Some of the marine fabrics we offer include:

Hot Summer Days are on their Way… Plus Other Reasons Why You’ll Want to Construct or Seek Shelter Under Awnings Made with Awnshade Fabric

ACRYLIC-AWNING-FABRIC123
With sub-freezing temperatures still affecting many locations in the U.S. right now, you may find it difficult to remember the sweltering heat of recent summers. But, recent research about weather trends shows “significant” increases in the number of extremely hot days and nights, and this trend is expected to continue. In fact, the Old Farmer’s Almanac, which has been in the business of predicting weather since 1792 (almost one hundred years longer than we’ve been in business here at Mauritzon – we started in 1888), is calling for more hot summer days in the months ahead.

Get ready! Summer 2015 in the U.S. will be here before we know it, and it’s a good idea to start planning for the anticipated “extremely hot days and nights” now. Now is also a good time to think about ways to keep your cool when the temperatures heat up, and to start planning how you’re going to help your customers keep their cool this summer, as well. In addition to seeking shelter indoors in air-conditioned homes and offices, many people will look for ways to stay cool when they’re outdoors this summer. Seeking shade and shelter under well-constructed awnings made with high-quality outdoor fabrics is one way to escape some of the heat.

As one of the nation’s largest industrial textile wholesale manufacturers and distributors, we’ve been featuring all types of industrial fabrics and related hardware for 127 years. Awning and outdoor fabrics and awning hardware are among our vast product selection, and this month we’re debuting a new awning and outdoor fabric here at Mauritzon. It’s called “Awnshade” because it’s so durable and easy to work with for awning construction, and it offers many great features for use outdoors, including:

  • It’s available in 20 eye-catching colors and can also be custom-colored on both sides, making it perfect for privacy curtains and all types of awnings – residential awnings, retractable awnings, permanent awnings – and other outdoor products.
  • It features anti-wicking scrim, and this protects the fabric against discoloration.
  • The fabric is low-maintenance and easy-to-clean – if and when cleaning is necessary, because Awnshade features a non-porous coating that repels most dirt and pollutants on its own!
  • It resists bruising and markings, and anyone involved in awning construction will appreciate that it’s so easy to weld.
  • Awnshade is also fire-resistant, conforming to ULC-S109M, NFPA-701 and CSFM.
  • And, as we mentioned, before, Awnshade is durable in high-heat situations and other harsh environments, so it’s ready to take the heat on those hot summer days ahead.

Additional information about Awnshade and other awning and outdoor fabrics we offer at Mauritzon can be found on our website. Or, if you have any questions, give us a call at 800-621-4352.
