Graphic software

The new and updated tools available in version 4 of the EFI Fiery® DesignPro software suite from EFI allow graphic designers to create and complete designs directly within Adobe® design software. Fiery DesignPro eliminates the need to reduce designs to indexed colors, maintaining the highest possible fidelity of the artwork. It also creates smoother transitions and gradients, delivering optimum color results, especially for digitally printed textiles.

Rugged fastener

The new TC-F6H from Fastmount® is a durable sew-on female clip that blends into its environment by design. Made of a UV-stable copolymer, the clip is resistant to heat, sun and rust. Its translucent slide-lock mechanism allows cushions to be physically “locked” into position by simply sliding the lock into its housing. Ridges in the clip allow for automated parallel sewing to save cushion production time, and the slide-lock mechanism means
a removal tool is not required.

Sophisticated sling

Serge Ferrari’s new sling mesh fabrics include Batyline® Duo and Batyline® Iso. Batyline Duo, available in 28 colors, is a highly durable fabric combining one warp thread with two weft threads for subtle color combinations and a textile look and feel. Batyline Iso, available in 31 colors, is the industry standard for outdoor sling furniture. The fabric’s long life is due to extremely simple implementation, excellent resistance to weather conditions and dimensional stability.
