Macro shot – extremely tight weave with always consistent quality.
DIMENSION-POLYANT One Design Polyester fabrics are a precision designed collection of purpose built fabrics to meet the requirements of a wide range of boat and sail applications. In-house weaving and finishing ensure that the tight constructions and variety of finishes, from the soft FTO to the exclusive hard coated HTP® plus, perform with a consistency for classes that demand a repeatable sail shape every time. Each style has proven its outstanding properties, particularly the 1% performance and controlled bias stretch, on and off the racecourse. Our One Design fabrics have been consistently refined over the years to be winners in sails from the Int. Optimist class up to Olympic classes.
DIMENSION-POLYANT AP Low Aspect styles are engineered to provide good fill strength and at the same time excellent bias stretch resistance. The ability to resist long term loads comes from the construction of the woven cloth in close harmony with the resin’s ability to reinforce.

DIMENSION-POLYANT Square® was designed for use in performance oriented sails. These premium polyester styles are used when improved off-the-threadline support is desired. Square® styles are unique in many aspects.
They are easily identified by a ripstop pattern woven into the substrate by using either 500 or 1000 denier yarns paired in both the warp and the fill direction. These yarns create an extremely rugged fabric, even in the lightweight styles with the very firm HTP® plus finish.
All the Square® styles feature fairly balanced constructions, woven with very tightly packed small denier yarns. Combined with larger size Square® yarns, it makes these styles low stretch in all three directions and suitable for both vertical and crosscut constructions in racing and cruising headsails as well as in small mainsails.
