Hufcor Non-Standard Finish Guidelines
Many non-standard vinyl, carpet and fabrics may also be used with Hufcor accordion partitions for an additional charge. While many of these materials can be applied to our products with few problems, we do receive requests for materials that are impractical to apply in our factory. The appropriate type of wall covering adds to the beauty and long-life of Hufcor partitions, and ultimately, customer satisfaction. We strongly recommend that any non-standard finishes considered for use on an accordion door meet the following criteria:
Look for the following characteristics in special materials:
Strength - the fabric and backing must be strong enough to be applied without being stretched. A stretched fabric will attempt to return after it is applied and may distort the pattern and/or break the adhesive bond resulting in puckering and bubbles. Backing should be double acrylic.
Consider vinyls with some embossing - vinyls without embossing will not hide imperfections in the substrate. Smooth fabrics are not recommended for partitions. Advise your customer the result will be similar to wallpapering over a plastered wall - any blemishes are magnified.
Soil Resistance - Fabrics which are not soil resistant and which cannot be easily cleaned will not be allowed. Examples of these fabrics are suede and velour. Remember that accordion doors are subject to handprints and other soil through constant movement and use.
Characteristics of materials which will not be considered are:
- Smooth, shiny surfaces
- Suede or velour
- Paper backed
- Unbacked fabrics
- Any material that stretches
- Less than 54” [1372mm] wide
Material must be supplied in continuous rolls as follows:
For Use On Accordion Doors
Vinyl must weigh between 18-21 oz., be heat sealable, and 54"  wide. The inside core dimension of the roll is a minimum of 1-3/4" diameter so that it will fit onto our laminator.
Factory Pre-Approval Required for Non-Standard Materials
Use of special materials must receive prior approval by Hufcor. To obtain approval, contact your local Hufcor Distributor.
Warranty and Non-Standard Materials
Use of non-standard materials voids the Hufcor surface material warranty.
