fabrica™ - fabric tension wall coverings

The fabrica™ fabric tension wall covering is a unique bespoke system designed and manufactured here in Aotearoa. It consists of a range of hardwearing industrial woven and knitted fabrics that are printed on-demand and fitted into one of our locally designed and patented lightweight aluminium frames.

 

the function

Fabric wall coverings have gained popularity in recent times due to their tactile nature when benchmarked against traditional wallpapers, but also improve the acoustics within the room or area as many recent commercial and residential designs give little consideration to noisy room acoustics with the increased popularity of large, polished surfaces and oversized glass windows.

With our leading expertise in fabric textile printing and finishing, you are able to have fabrica™ fabric tension wall covering as any image, pattern or solid colour of your choosing, designed to enhance the interior design of your environment.

The increased popularity of custom wall coverings and more so the fabrica™ fabric tension wall coverings can be put down to the large range of tactile fabric textures available paired with a print capability that sees a maximum print width of 3200mm x 50 000mm long with no seam. For larger executions, we are able to use a near-invisible seam to manufacture and deliver oversized designs.

The fabrica™ fabric tension wall coverings also create maximum return over an extended period of time as you are able to pay once for the custom-manufactured frame along with its installation; then you or your staff can easily change out the textile printed graphic to suit your updated aesthetic.

Finding immense demand within the residential and hospitality sectors in recent years, this increased demand can largely be put down to the flexibility, performance, and customization that the fabrica™ fabric tension wall covering systems offer. Add to this that your unique one-off textile full-colour graphic can also be removed to be washed and/or updated with a replacement graphic with our no-tools hassle free-process system.

However, printing and handling textiles are not something that is mainstream and for this reason, our vertically integrated delivery model with in-house fabric specialist printing and finishing means you have access to the best product and manufacturing service available on the market today.

The dye-sublimation process is an eco-friendly process that uses no hard solvents, in contrast, it uses water-based organic inks with a vegetable/soy base ensuring there are no harmful chemicals being washed into our waterways.

With a range of fabrics available, the most popular has seen our velvet plush finish fabric being the favoured choice. This seems to be grounded in the perception of luxury with the plush velvet finish having brilliantly rich colour reproduction along with the increased tactile finish this fabric delivers.   

The core range of the fabrica™ fabric tension wall covering system aluminium profiles has been designed and extruded locally ensuring we stay true to our NZMADE delivery stance. With aluminium being the most recyclable metal available today, our system offers our customers a more sustainable option than traditional materials. We also have a range of composite profiles that have been developed for specialist applications where aluminium is not suited.

 

THE OUTCOME

As with our entire product range, our customers have the option to engage our services at the end of life to ensure materials are repurposed, recycled or disposed of responsibly.

The fabrica™ fabric tension wall covering system functionally outperforms any other comparable system available in the market today whilst offering unmatched customization and image colour reproduction to deliver the designed aesthetic.  This paired with the environmentally-conscious materials selection and sustainability stance of the OneFrame brand makes us the ideal execution partner for your next project.
