Our company is very well known in the glamping tent industry due to our high standards using both modern and old sail-making techniques to repair and maintain canvas tents. We maintain a high number of fabric structures for large holiday parks through to small one-off boutique glamping sites. Offering annual checks on your safari tents, bell tents and glamping pods throughout the UK. Helping protect your investment ensuring your tent can stand up to the harsh UK climate.

Our team use hand stitching and patching methods to repair and strengthen any weak points that may have occurred over the years, due to the wear and tear these tents experience.

We work with you to solve any issues you may have with repairing zips, windows or replacing door panels and more. Once we have an idea of the job in hand, normally done by the client sending photos of the areas in question. I will then give you a quote and if you’re happy we will book you in and send two craftsmen, which is needed for this technique to be carried out.

Over the past few weeks Fabricworks have been working tirelessly with the Serge Ferrari group to bring you the AGIVIR™ STICK’ON.

A protective adhesive membrane that covers surfaces to reduce the spread of Coronaviruses and solution to combat the current pandemic. The Serge Ferrari group has developed a technology based on silver particles which makes its surfaces virucidal.

Working in close association with Serge Ferrari and being a specialist in the field of fabric we have now become the UK’s distributor and supplier of this product.

With Fabricworks wealth of knowledge with fabric and installation puts us well placed to assist you with your AGIVIR purchase, be it ex-works or a full installation package.

You can use AGIVIR STICK’ON for a number of purposes.

Fabricworks design and build

By / Exhibitions, Interior / Comments Off on Fabricworks design and build

It’s always a pleasure working with businesses creating fabric work from start to finish and seeing the final creation.

Emma Morgan Photography recently enquired regarding the creation of an exhibition stand for her up and coming Wedding Shows.

Emma had an idea in her mind of what commercial exhibition stand she was looking for, after visiting many expos around the UK from the National Wedding show’s in the NEC Arena Birmingham to the Wedding Show in Exeter’s Westpoint.

Being a photographer image quality was key to Emma to showcase her work. With this in mind I designed and manufactured an easy to install frame, with a high quality block out fabric using a dye sublimation print process.

The biggest compliment for us throughout the day was that Emma got asked on a number of occasions where she sourced her picture frames from, only to be told that they were part of the image and printed on the fabric.

It was a delight to work with Emma who made our job easy who supplied us with high res images ready to print and was a great help on site.

I assisted on site to build the stand which was complete in 30 minutes, with plenty of time for a cuppa afterwards.

It was a pleasure to be working with Tony Hogg again www.tonyhoggdesign.co.uk on this bespoke canopy for Roxy Cinema Axbridge www.axbridgeroxy.org.uk/about-us/  creating valuable space for the smallest cinema in England.

The brief was to have something that was lightweight and easy to erect when required, we decided with Tony that the FW-500FR would be ideal. Using 25mm twin stitched taped seams and a heavy webbing edge detail as well as Velcro tabs for securing lights we were able to manufacture this bespoke conical structure.
