Fabricworks was established in 2006 to service the fabric structure and exhibition industry as well as offering flexibility to its sister company www.tensilefabric.co.uk helping them to produce high end tensile structures. Over time we have now branched out into many fabric sectors including: Print, Exhibitions, Sun Shades and Blinds pretty much anything we can sew or weld as we have the skill set to do it.
Fabricworks offers the highest quality fabric structures and products for anything that can be made from fabrics such as PVC, Polyester, Mesh, Voile, Flag and even Glass to get that ‘Class O’ fire rating. Employing a wide variety of high-end fabrics from Ferrari, Mermet, and Joels we can create any imaginable shape or form in any size to suit your design and budget.
With our purpose built sail loft housing a variety of Singer and Phaff single, twin and over-locking sewing machines, 3 HF welders one being a FIAB 14m traveling head welder (ideal for producing large fabric structures and marquees).
Using our prototyping area we can design, build and dispatch to your requirements in one easy step. Our equipment and facilities enable us to achieve high-quality technical fabric work as well as offering non-technical fabric work, for example, repairs to your caravan awnings/tents or products needing simple sewing techniques.
