The story of Pirontex®...

Pioneering Spirit

Our production manager and shareholder Georg Silgoner wanted to create the best tent fabric worldwide. It had to be innovative and very eco-friendly. This is how Pirontex® was born. 

Browse through the pictures on the right and find out more about the history of the textile and the research which lasted more than three years to develop the perfect tent fabric.   

Unbreakable Colours

What makes this new fabric so special? It maintains its original colour even when exposed to intense sunlight and/or humidity as well as when used over a long period of time.
This is proved by its high lightfastness, which was classified with a 7-8 grade (out of 8). Thus, Pirontex® guarantees excellent long-term colourfastness.

The Pirontex® fabric also distinguishes itself by its elegant, matt appearance, it is extremely tear- and UV resistant and keeps its shape.

Sustainability

For the world of tomorrow: Sustainability is not a state, but a path.

With the development of Pirontex® we have succeeded in creating a highly resistant fabric that was critically tested for all environmental aspects right from the start.
We paid particular attention to the dyeing process which, in the textile industry, is often associated with a high environmental impact.

In the production of our new textile we use:
50% less energy, 
80% less water and
we reduce CO2 emissions by 60%.

We avoid harmful dyeing processes and at the same time achieve a more durable colour result.

Innovation and Improvement

Durability and elasticity:
The fabric is produced using an ingeniously woven 600D thread to make it not only particularly durable, but also extremely elastic. The longer a product can be used, the better it is for the environment and your pocket! The increased elasticity ensures that the fabric adapts perfectly to the aluminium structure.  

Very high resistance:
Thanks to its dense weave, Pirontex® acquires body and strength, and special nano-coatings make it particularly resistant to cleaning chemicals, water, dirt and tears. Like all our fabrics, it protects against UV rays and it is windproof and fire retardant.

Intriguing design:
The Pirontex® fabric is immediately recognisable by its matt colours, again due to the special production. Matt, in contrast to glossy, gives a more elegant and professional appearance. You can touch and see the quality!
Pirontex® is available in 13 colours.

Smart Technology

The big difference between Pirontex® and other fabrics is the innovative and environmentally friendly production method that we, together with our textile manufacturer, have decided to adopt in order to create a unique and inimitable product.

Pirontex® is produced with a mix of new and recycled polyester polymers that are combined with colour pigments before being processed into yarn. This dyeing method is called "solution dyeing" and ensures that the product is not dyed with chemical solutions after its production, but is made from an already coloured yarn.

Why doesn't everyone use the solution dyeing process if it is so advantageous?

Solution dyeing is only feasible when huge quantities of fibre of the same colour are required, which for many companies is not sustainable. Moreover, applying a new dyeing method means a change in machinery and organisation, and many dyeing factories are simply not ready for this.

Common fabrics are made with a mostly greyish thread. The fabric is then dipped into a dye bath to obtain the desired colour.
