Announcing the New RECscreen 6000P Product Line

By | Products | No Comments

RECscreen 6000P is finally here, and we’re pretty excited!  Warps and wefts of different colors are woven with thick yarns into a beautiful two-sided twill weave pattern that gives RECscreen 6000P a beautiful aesthetic and strength. With a 97% shade factor and an average openness factor of 3%, it allows air permeability while blocking both heat and UV A/B rays from the sun, improving room ventilation and thermal stability as well as reducing energy consumption year round. Diagonal ribs increase the fabric strength, giving it great dimensional stability even under high tension. A strong and durable fabric, RECscreen 6000P is suitable for interior and exterior use, including  solar screens, awnings, and large zipper side retention screens. And like all our products, Recasens stands behind the quality construction of RECscreen 6000P with a 10-year limited warranty.

RECscreen® fabrics are made using PVC-coated, high-tenacity polyester yarns. The flexibility and cylindrical shape of polyester yarn gives it significant advantages over other traditional materials like fiberglass, including making it easier to open, close and fold retractable blinds or awnings without damaging the fabric.

Advantages of RECscreen® yarns
All RECscreen® fabrics are made of high-tenacity polyester yarns which offer significant advantages over the more commonly used fiberglass yarn:

  • Polyester yarn is more flexible than fiberglass yarn. Polyester screen yarns have a higher resistance to bending and torsion than fiberglass screen yarns making polyester screen fabric more resistant to breakage due to fatigue, folding or creasing.
  • High-tenacity polyester yarn ensures a perfect cohesion of the PVC finish. Unlike fiberglass and PVC, PVC and polyester share similar elastic and temperature behavior properties and create clean core cuts that do not fray or fringe regardless of the cutting process.
  • Because the yarn does not fray or fringe, the edges do not need taping or finishing, saving time and money.
  • High quality polyester and PVC pigments don’t fade or break down when exposed to continuous sunlight and offer unsurpassed dimensional stability for demanding applications like retractable zipper screens. (Color fastness factor 7-8, UNE ISO 105 B02).
  • Free from glass fiber, lead and other toxic heavy materials commonly used, our polyester yarns are odor free.

Sample cards of RECscreen 6000P will be available by the end of December. If you’d like to learn more about RECscreen 6000P, please contact us today!

El 2015 finaliza y estamos a las puertas del inicio de un nuevo periodo, con todas las expectativas puestas en que éste sea mejor que el anterior y que la tan esperada recuperación económica por fin se consolide en el mundo de la protección y control solar. Posiblemente el 2016 nos depare mayores esperanzas en lo que a la creación de negocio se refiere, pero hay que ser cautos y conscientes de la realidad en la que vivimos, todavía un tanto alejada de lo que es una economía en clara fase de expansión.
Queremos compartir contigo este último número del año para echar un vistazo a todos los proyectos, eventos, productos y noticias relevantes en los hemos invertido tiempo e ilusión y que mejor que hacerlo con aquellas personas que nos han acompañado durante todo el año mostrándonos su cariño, su apoyo y confianza, reafirmando nuestros lazos de colaboración y amistad. Nos sentimos felices de compartir una vez más el año nuevo con vosotros y desearos un feliz y próspero año Nuevo.

Green Building Material Fair con YICOMEI

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Dentro de la ESBUILD tuvo lugar la Green Building Material Fair en Shanghai, feria dedicada a los materiales de construcción pero con un enfoque más orientado a los materiales ecológicos. El sector de la sostenibilidad y la eficiencia energética es un sector muy de moda ahora en China porque la gente toma conciencia de ello por la masificación, polución y crecimiento sin límites del país.
RECASENS, de la mano de su distribuidor Yicomei, apostó por presentarse a esta feria para dar a conocer su porfolio de soluciones con un catálogo especialmente editado en chino y para promocionar su nuevo show-room en el centro comercial Ogloria Shanghai, uno de los centros comerciales más lujosos de la ciudad dedicado a “home furnishings” de interior y exterior.
Otro nuevo reto dentro de las políticas de expansión y presencia internacional de RECASENS.

The origin of the awnings

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

As an expert, Recasens wants to dedicate a post about the origin of awnings.

The awnings were born for the first time in the coliseum of Rome, in Roman times. In these times, extended a type of folding awning called “velar”.
They made it with the same type of canvas as the sail of the ships, and then it was replaced by a lighter material: the linen.
The “velar” opened and closed with a network structure of ropes, so, as you can see, already in ancient Rome there was a tradition and a technology behind the use of awnings.

Later, the first modern awning that is known was seen at the Universal Exhibition in Paris in 1889.
It was the Fabre company that created the first awning with arm, installing them in shops of the French capital, and, little by little, became popular.
This awning model corresponds to what we know it today. Its use was intended for employees to protect them from the sun and to diminish the  temperatures inside.

As for Spain, it did not arrive until 1936, when an employee of the Catalan company Estape S.A., Canut García, imported them after a visit in Paris and saw clearly an opportunity.
The story tells that he took a coffee during a hot afternoon, and he loved the utility of the awning that allowed him to sit outside without the inconveniences of the sun’s rays.

The idea spread in more cities of France and Spain, and in a few years, began to be used in other European countries, as in Italy, Germany or Portugal and the rest of the world.

Over the years the technique and quality have been perfected, to the point making seamless awnings, something unimaginable not so long ago
