Tapetex - 67 - Nonwoven

During the Heimtextil our newest collection, Tapetex - 67 - Nonwoven, has been successfully launched. 

Since 1975 Tapetex transfers sustainable raw materials into wallcovering for the international design community and today Tapetex is considered as the Master in Natural Textile Wallcovering.

This nonwoven collection aims to show:
  • The simplicity in the complexity of sustainable raw materials
  • A breakdown of the classics to re-invent the patterns of tomorrow
  • A mixture of different techniques, fusing the industrial with the handmade
  • Cutting-edge technology transported into daily life

The composition of the nonwoven used in all 195 items is FSC certified woodpulp reinforced with polyester for dimensional stability. The manufacture of woodpulp extracts the natural fibres found in trees of the carefully managed Scandinavian forests. These fibres are used for producing paper, cardboard boxes, etc.

Tapetex transfers these sustainable raw materials into wallcovering.

Currently all material is stock and samplebooks are in production, scheduled to be available on the market by the end of March. 
Specifications and pictures will be available on the website by the end of March as well so stay tuned!

NEW! Light Reflectance Values

Please take a look at our ‘Documents & Downloads’ section and find all test reports of our newly introduced Light Reflectance Values (LRV).

These values help you support in advising the specifyers, architects and designers.

Light Reflectance Value is often confused with the term intensity. Intensity is about vividness or dullness, is the colour clear or muted.

Value speaks strictly to the lightness or darkness of a colour.

The LRV is the total quantity of visible and useable light reflected by a surface in all directions and at all wavelengths when illuminated by a light source.

It is a measurement that tells you how much light a colour reflects, and conversely how much it absorbs. LRV runs on a scale from 0% to 100%. Zero assumed to be an absolute black and 100% being an assumed perfectly reflective white. An absolute black or perfectly reflecting white does not exist in our everyday terms. Approximately speaking, the average blackest black has a LRV of 5% and the whitest white 85%.

The Light Reflectance Value is a guideline. A relative point of reference for predicting how light or dark a colour will look and feel once applied to the walls. It is not a set standard by which to choose colours. Rather an indicator to help you make your best guess.

New stenter

In the new production hall we installed a new fully computerized stenter which can straighten, dye and coat fabrics in high speed over six chambers which are heated individually with different temperatures and moisture degrees.

Once the parameters for a quality are set, a next run will be produced exactly the same by just the touch of a button. In comparison with our older stenter a big improvement on technical possibilities, quality, energy use and speed.

New production facility

We are very excited to share with you that Tapetex has extended the production facility with a third production hall. This new production facility enables us to explore and develop new and ground-breaking production techniques in the field of textile wallcovering. In order to stay innovative and offer our partners the finest products, the hall is equipped with all new state of the art machinery.

Besides expanding the production capacity and technical possibilities, this new hall allowed us to optimize certain production processes like for instance our quality control.

Within the quality control department we have replaced all previous quality inspecting machines with new custom built machinery. In this way we created an interacting working environment between the incoming raw materials and the finished end product.

Self-evident, there is no need to say that this entire facility surpasses the latest in building and environmental standards. Optimal daylight entry combined with individually daylight controlled led armatures, liquid tight concrete floor out of one piece, sound absorbing shed roof, an optimum in insulation, energy and heat retrieving techniques, et cetera.
