Ferrari Releases New Textile Facade

Ferrari, the French producer of composite textiles for large-scale building applications, has launched Stamisol FT 371 lightweight façade covering, said to combine stability, transparency, and durability.

Due to the controlled biaxial weaving performed on the polyester scrim during the coating process, the textile is claimed to end up with exceptional dimensional stability in both warp and weft directions. When it is put under tension on frames, the panels remain perfectly flat and keep their original geometrical shape. Its flexibility allows a perfect fit to a facade’s specific shapes and curves with standard or customized panels.

Appearance can also be made to order. The metallic styles-gold, bronze, copper, and aluminum-combine the appearance of metals with the flexibility of composite membranes. Digital or silkscreen printing turns the textile façades into large visual communication. Another alternative is to choose a design that plays on the environment and blends in by harmonizing with the landscape.

This composite textile has been rated with M1, B1, and Euroclass Bs2d0 fire classifications and is guaranteed for 10 years. It can withstand extreme temperatures ranging from -22° to 158°F and has ISO 9001 certification.
