Some technical aspects of choosing the right commercial fabric
There are some additional technical features of commercial upholstery fabric that you need to be aware of when you choose fabric for your Greenock business.
Thedurabilityof commercial fabric is measured in 'rubs'; the higher the rub rating, the longer fabric will last as the more robust it is. It can also be expressed on some fabrics as the thread count and again the higher the thread count, the tougher it is. The rating is usually expressed as 'threads over square inch of fabric'.
Abrasionis another technical word you will comes across when it comes to choosing the right type of commercial upholstery for any business setting. It can be defined as the wear created on upholstery fabric caused by the rubbing or coming into contact with another fabric. Clearly, this can relate to many situations including the high level of 'human traffic' that passes through food serving areas.
This rub count is also known as the 'Martindale abrasion test' and is used to produce a standard measurement which helps businesses, like yours to select the right fabric that will wear well over time. All fabric will wear out with use, but you need to wear in a balanced even way and obviously, last as long as possible.
