Tried and tested


Ventile® is subjected to some of the most stringent tests in the textile industry. Before we bring you the finished performance fabric, we check every batch under the following conditions:

  • Tensile and tear strength where our advanced machines measure exactly how difficult it is to tear the fabric across its weft and warp (horizontal/ vertical weave of fabric)
  • Experiment with different types of stitching
  • The level of waterproofness using a Hydrostatic Head rating
  • Moisture vapour transmission rates for breathability
  • Abrasion tests
  • Dimensional stability (shrinkage)
  • Fabric weight (per square metre)
  • Colour fastness to rubbing (wet and dry test)
