Compared to conventional tarpaulin fabrics, PLANOFIL® is surprisingly light. A boat can be covered and uncovered in no time at all. The tarpaulin can be folded easily into a handy package and stowed anywhere. This saves energy and time.
Its extremely robust fabric structure and tough coating give PLANOFIL® very high tear resistance, even after years of use in wind and weather. PLANOFIL® is dirt-repellent, resistant to seawater and does not become brittle even when exposed to frequent and intense sunlight.
Experts appreciate PLANOFIL® – especially boat upholsterers who work with it every day. PLANOFIL® is extremely flexible and easy to handle. The polyester fabric can be used in many ways, for example as a sunshade or to cover lounge furniture. Due to its eco-friendly PU coating, the softeners in the fabric can’t evaporate.
PLANOFIL® is dirt-repellent and practically cleans itself. The coating acts like the non-stick surface of a frying pan – even stubborn dirt does not stick to it. The bird droppings that boat owners dread usually disappear on a PLANOFIL® boat cover with the next rainfall, or they can be easily rinsed off with clear water.
PLANOFIL® is the perfect material for a wide range of applications. In addition to tarpaulins and other coverings in the maritime sector, PLANOFIL® has proven its worth for various other types of covers and shades. Under the Inselstern brand, PLANOFIL® also makes sporty and elegant bags.
To give you a quick impression of how light and handy PLANOFIL® is, we demonstrate the use of our tarpaulin and tarpaulin fabric in a short video. You can see the tarpaulin as a finished product on a boat and while it’s manufactured by a saddler.
