The base material consists of very thin glass yarn spun from molten glass. The glass can be pulled into the finest filaments, forming the base material for glass fabrics. Compared to traditional wall coverings, textile glass is extremely impact resistant and hard-wearing. It is particularly suitable for use in busy areas. Compared with other wall coverings, its wall-strengthening properties are considerably higher. This gives glass fabrics the special ability to bridge existing cracks, prevent the formation of new cracks, and are fire-rated. Walls are also protected from damage through impact or abrasion. Systexx can also be used to encapsulate asbestos on interior walls and ceilings, saving thousands and increasing the life-span of the building.
These 'uber-cool' wallcoverings are being specified on major commercial projects including schools, hospitals and public buildings. Included in the product range is Systexx's incredible magnetic wallcovering
