Awnings / Sun Protection

Efficient, textile solar protection not only provides a sense of well-being, but also protects valuables. This is achieved with shade systems that can be installed indoors or outdoors. They can range from a classic sun sail, sun canopy or conservatory shade to sun blinds or panel blinds.  An attractive awning could be part of a caravan, which alongside it creates additional space and protection against the elements.

The machines we recommend to produce beautiful solar protection and awnings are TD and TX.

Pool Liners

Pool liners cover the swimming pool walls and floor to create an impenetrable surface. The pool liner’s main purpose is to keep the pool water inside the pool and is a product that normally is used for a long time. A nice looking pool liner gives the swimming pool an attractive look.

By welding the pool liner with HF, you assure that the welding seam is strong and durable.

The machines we recommend for manufacturing pool liners are TDW and DR.

Halls

Mobile halls made of tent membrane are an economical alternative to permanent structures. They are quickly put up and just as quickly taken down. They are cost-effective, energy saving and durable.

Due to the lightweight construction, structures made of tent membranes can be put up to cover large areas or great heights, such as for high-bay warehouses, assembly halls or aircraft hangars. HF-welding is the most optimal production method especially when long and straight welds are required.

The machines we recommend for manufacturing halls are TDW and TDW-Mega.

Ventilation Ducts

Ventilation ducting tubes can be used in for example mines, tunnels and underground operations. The ventilation ducting tubes are exposed to a harsh environment and need to last for a long time. The HF-welded ventilation ducts are both water- and air-tight.

PVC coating makes the ventilation duct air and water-tight, protects the tube from UV radiation, and is chemical and fire resistant. It is very important that there is no leakage in the joints, and that the seams are strong and durable.

The machine we recommend for manufacturing ventilation ducts is TDW.

Stretch Ceilings

A high quality stretch ceiling requires high accuracy both in regards to straightness and quality of weld. It is important to use a high quality material made for that specific purpose and a machine with the ability to weld straight and accurate.

Forsstrom has developed a machine that is specially built for the production of stretch ceilings, the TD-Ceiling.

 

 

Agriculture

Efficient protection is needed both in the agriculture and cattle breeding sector. HF-welded barriers or fences of PVC is a convenient alternative. The HF-welded seams are sustainable and strong, as strong as the surrounding material if correctly performed. The HF-welded seams withstand sun, water and wind, therefore it is also a long-lasting and an environmentally good option for the agricultural segment.

The machines we recommend for manufacturing agricultural products are TDW and TX.

Geomembranes

Geomembranes require quality HF-welding. Geomembranes are used in many different applications such as liners for water, base liner system of a landfill, to control expansive soils etc. In many cases the geomembranes are large and need to be waterproof and durable for a long time.
