Conventional Weft-Insertion Knitted Scrim
VentaTex® and VentaLene™ fabrics incorporate synthetic scrims, which are produced by overstitching a non-woven web. This produces a scrim with a unique geometric pattern.   The substrate is laminated using PVC films, resulting in a strong, low-maintenance, fire-resistant fabric excellent for brattice and flexible ducting applications.
RipStop Weft-Insertion Knitted Scrim
VentaTex® and VentaLene® fabrics with RipStop feature heavier yarns staggered sequentially in either a uni-directional or bi-directional pattern. The result is a fabric that prevents a small snag from developing into a major tear.
