skai® Faux leather for a range of applications

Contract furnishing

The contract sector places high demands on our skai® upholstery fabrics. Materials used for headboards in hotels and on cruise ships or for seating in restaurants and stadiums must have flame-retardant properties to protect passengers and guests if there’s an emergency. Our products meet a wide variety of flammability standards. skai® Parotega NF and skai® Palma NF fulfil the strict building material class 1, meaning they comply with the very strictest flame retardant directives.

The materials chosen for contract furnishing applications should be highly durable and suitable for the task at hand. Seats in areas with a high number of visitors need to offer good abrasion resistance to stop the furniture wearing. skai® Pandoria Plus can withstand 100,000 Martindale cycles, meaning it complies with the most stringent requirements.

When creating their pieces, furniture manufacturers and designers as well as interior designers and decorators find real inspiration in the attractive designs, strong structures and on-trend colors of our artificial leathers. Time and again, they use our products to conjure up irresistible, emotionally impactful living spaces – regardless of whether the materials are applied to couches, armchairs or walls. Just look around and it becomes quite clear that our products have found their way into all corners of our day-to-day lives: at home, in the car, at work, on holiday and in our downtime. In every situation, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They enrich and add beauty to our lives. They make us feel nice and comfortable at any hour of the day or night.

High-quality skai® upholstery fabric for the outdoor area

Artificial leather for outdoor applications

With skai® cool colors Venezia and skai® Neptun, we offer innovative upholstery materials for outdoor applications. skai® cool colors Venezia is a high-quality upholstery fabric for outdoor use whose surface significantly reduces the warming of the upholstery material in direct sunlight. Special cool colors pigments reflect up to 80% of near-infrared radiation. This reduces the heating of the upholstery material by up to 25%. This outstanding technology has already proven itself in other business areas, such as convertible seat covers or window frames.

Here applies: The darker the color, the greater the effect. In the outdoor sector, skai® cool colors Venezia now allows the use of colored synthetics across the entire spectrum, which was previously problematic due to heating.

The outdoor material skai® Neptune – either in Caleri or Pescara embossing – is also available in many summer colors. It has everything an upholstery material needs to withstand all weather conditions. The extremely robust material is lightfast and waterproof. All other values are also far above the norm. This makes the surface a successful long seller, especially for outdoor use, for example in cafés and restaurants. 

Artificial leather for cruise ships and boats

Above all, however, skai® Neptun is the first choice for marine applications as boat upholstery, on yachts and on cruise ships. A nano-coating makes both materials particularly resistant to dirt and weathering. They are chlorine resistant, saltwater resistant and UV-stable.
