Why Twitchell Textilene®?

Since 1928, Twitchell has offered only the highest quality custom fabrics for the world’s leading manufacturers. In their 500,000 square foot plant located on 34 acres in the historic town of Dothan, Alabama, Twitchell today manufactures a wide variety of woven, non-woven, and knit textiles. They also coat and laminate for the furnishings, safety, packaging and medical fields with virtually any resin or additive. Twitchell is also currently working hand in hand with new technologies, specifically in the automotive and bulk packaging industries, to make more and more of their components recyclable.

Textilene®is made of PVC coated woven polyester non-stretch yarn.

Textilene® is flame retardant, heat sealable, mildew resistant and stable under either hot or cold temperatures. Applications for Textilene®include indoor/outdoor casual furniture, umbrellas, safety fabrics (including orange safety vests), barriers, erosion control, cots, window shades, solar screens, and more.

Textilene® is only made out of woven polyester because of its proven durability and performance qualities, as compared to fiberglass based solar screen products.

Fiberglass based products do not have the ability to hold their color and the stability of the product itself over a reasonable period of time.

We do not use fiberglass in any of our solar screening products.

Textilene® is the #1 solar screening on the market today for quality, durability, and performance for the southern heat.

Don’t be fooled by cheap imitations. Twitchell Textilene®, when only the original will do!
