Hume’s commercial fabrics not only look good, they’re smart and environmentally-minded
Decking out a commercial space can be tricky, so your wish list should be carefully constructed. Naturally you want your customers and workers to be comfortable in their surrounds, but don’t forget that there are all kinds of practical considerations to contemplate in high traffic areas. In the end, the commercial fabrics you choose should be DURABLE, STYLISH and KIND TO THE PLANET.
At Hume Internationale, we offer upholstery, vinyl and fibre matrix materials that are high quality, cleverly designed and fire-rated to top Australian standards. We offer a diverse range of patterns and textures with technologically advanced properties, enabling you to select materials that are both environmentally sound and hygienically superior. We’ve got your vertical spaces covered too, with a great range of cubicle curtains and panels that give you substantial flexibility.
Those outside the discipline of design assume that what designers do is decoration. Good design is problem solving – Jeffrey Veen
Crypton® Green is strong on the environment
Let’s start with the environment, an increasingly important factor in commercial decisions these days. We offer Performance Fabric Upholstery, built environmentally tough using the cutting edge technology of Crypton® Green. These products are manufactured using renewable energy (via renewable energy credits) and are carbon-neutral (with verifiable emission reductions). Crypton® Green products consist of 50-100% recycled fibre, heavy-metal-free polyester, wool with heavy-metal-free dyes and polypropylene. Crypton® materials are virtually indestructible, offering the commercial proprietor a super-soft, stain resistant fabric that breathes. And with Crypton®‘s five-year warranty, you can be sure that no spills, stains, fluid or bacteria will ever penetrate your precious fibres! Crypton® is the preferred choice of Marriott, Hilton, Carnival Cruises, Kaiser Permanente, McDonald’s and more.
Cubicle Curtains that are light on the wash and last forever
Now let’s look at our Cubicle Curtain Fabrics. Woven from Avora yarns, these fabrics contain the properties of basic polyester with the added benefit of flame resistance. This flame resistance is imparted at the molecular level, is unaffected by stain removers and never washes out. The low water absorption properties of Avora materials ensure that up to 30% less energy and water consumption is used during the laundering process (compared to treated cotton). Eclipse is a 100% inherently flame resistant Avora polyester fabric. Eclipse is able to sustain multiple washings with minimal or no shrinkage and no change in dimensional stability or colour appearance. With excellent wear and tear properties, these extraordinary fabrics will still being going strong in years to come.
Upholstery Fabrics with Style
And most importantly, let’s look at the style elements built into our commercial fabrics collection. The Performance Collection gives the commercial operator a wealth of styles and colours. Montego offers an elegant floral repeat pattern available in bold colour pathways. Jeeves adds a touch of class with its classic diamond pattern in various contrasts. Maui carries a tropical flavour with stylised flowers and stems reminiscent of a sheltered Hawaiian bay glistening in the summer breeze. High Jinxs boasts a funky repeat pattern featuring off-centre squares and diamonds that seem to dance across the surface. The Vinyl Upholstery Collection offers a large selection of plains, dots, interlocking circles, etched surfaces and leaf motifs. The Fibre Matrix Collection offers a carefully selected range of colours and textures with exotic titles like Tonga, Summerland, Sequin, Key West, Equine and more. The Panel Collection carries a broad spectrum of patterns and grains in both muted and bold colours. The Cubicle Collection contains some unique specimens that incorporate seascape, celestial and arboreal themes.
In short, you’ll find a compelling design and technologically advanced fabric to meet the demands of any commercial space. Give us a call today on (03) 9335 6711 or explore our commercial fabric gallery now.
