Camira launches new global fabrics range

Global textile manufacturer Camira, claims it is pushing the boundaries for transport design with a new contemporary collection of technical textiles. Vision, Camira’s new flat-woven fabric range, uses lightly textured surfaces, small pattern repeats and geometric based designs to create a modern fabric for bus and coach interiors. 

Inspired by the workings of mechanical components, Camira says its new Vision range aims to reflect the colour, pattern and texture of transport mechanics, translating these features into functional performance fabrics for transport interiors. 

A dark background colour enhances the use of metallic highlights to create strong colour effects under moving light. 

“Our Vision fabric collection is offering something different to the bus and coach sector,” says Ciara Crossan, design manager for transport. “The modern styling is elevated by a clever 3D effect achieved through the metallic accent yarns adding depth and dimension to the dark background base. 

“The beauty of Vision fabric is its ease to coordinate with other materials. The accent colours can be emphasised with a matching vinyl, working well for the headrest, side panels or seat base. It allows bus and coach seats to have the flexibility to look attractive and well styled but maintain the performance required for transport interiors.”

Vision is foam-backed as standard making upholstering easier, and the collection meets all international bus and coach flammability standards, including the new European Regulation 118.02. 

European ECE Regulation No. 118 is used to govern the fire safety of materials used in buses and coaches, and from 26 July 2017, all interior components of a vehicle must meet Regulation No. 118.02.

Coordinating trims for Vision are available for piping, headrests, wall side and ceiling finishes, and curtaining to provide flexible options for combination seats using more than one material type. Options include new high performance vinyl, Vita, and leather range Classic, Lucia FR, Micro Trim, Premier Trim and Super Trim.
