You could say that Tammy Glover, in many ways, is the face of Value Vinyls. Her infectious smile and bright personality have been radiant at the company for the last 22 years! Yes, that is not a typo… Tammy has been an important part of Value Vinyls for close to a quarter century and believe me, she knows her vinyl! We have customers that refuse to visit with anyone else! Tammy is a Texas girl born and raised here all her life. She has a golden heart and is always doing something special for someone in the office. Be it making a cake for a birthday or handing out candy at her desk to anyone who walks by, she is always making someone smile. Tammy knows much about the internal mechanics of Value Vinyls and is always ready to lend a hand where needed. She has held down a number of positions but her love for our valued customers has always brought her back to customer service and she wears the title of Sales Support Specialist with honor and conviction. Known for her customer relations, Tammy strives to make certain every order she handles, large or small gets the individual attention to detail and expediant results that will meet her expectations. Everything from what the customer orders to providing the best shipment options available are a priority. Tammy goes above and beyond to arrive at a positive outcome. For example, one day our phones went down and she immediately jumped into action to offer up her cell phone number so we could reroute all our incoming calls to her phone. She was one busy girl that day until the phones were fixed but did it with a smile and was happy to assist in an otherwise bad situation. We are certainly miles ahead of the curve with Tammy being a loyal and important part of Value Vinyls, but to be honest, every customer that crosses paths with Tammy is getting the Gold Star Treatment! Of course it goes without saying that our Customer Service Specialists whom she works with, Kimber Easthom and Amanda Bledsoe have only benefited from their working relationships and are assured to provide that same Gold Star Treatment!

I am amazed by the growth that is happening in the Fitness world! In fact, since the year 2000 Fitness has become a Very Healthy Industry! Get this…The number of health clubs in the United States has grown from nearly 16,000 in 2000 to over 36,000 in 2016, with an increase in members from 32.8 million to over 55 million in the same time. Now, really listen to this… what’s most exciting to us in the Athletic Fabric and Equipment industries is that in the U.S., sales of sports equipment are over 5 billion dollars annually! You can bet that every fitness club has exercise pieces that require a “skid-proof” fabric to prevent both the person working out and the exercise equipment itself from not slipping or skidding while in use. EverGRIP22 is the solution! Value Vinyls has the perfect material that will handle anti-skid issues! This 22-oz. material is an unbalanced, high-grip, anti-skid coated vinyl fabric with a diamond emboss. EverGRIP22 is used for exercise pieces such as Plyo-Boxes and the underside of Exercise and Gymnastics Mats. Built to take a Beating! Yes, this fabric is tough and it withstands great physical stress, while its Easy Handling is key to the fabricator. EverGRIP22 has a soft supple hand for easy fabrication, yet well-constructed with a 90/10 coating and a half-panama weave for high tear and tensile strength. Wow, now that’s having your cake and losing weight too! Value Vinyls has many types of Athletic Vinyl and Mesh Fabrics that range in application use for Indoor Gymnasium Curtains, Wall Pads, Punching Bags and Children’s Exercise Shapes to Outdoor Dummy Bags, Jumping Pads, Stadium Pads as well as Athletic Waterpark Facility Shade and Awning Fabrics.

Did you know there are an estimated 15.5 million trucks operating on United States roads at any given time, logging over 400 billion miles each year? Some statistics I reviewed recently showed the United States economy depends on trucks to deliver nearly 70% of all freight transported annually, accounting for over $600 billion worth of manufactured and retail goods. That’s a lot of trucks on the road at any given time and fortunately for our industry, many of these trucks require truck tarps! Today, Value Vinyls supports many companies across the North America with an extensive range of products for truck tarp applications. These fabrics are developed to handle even the most extreme conditions, such as frigid cold or scorching hot temperatures, including ice and snow, sleet, rain, hail and even wind whip from open-road hauling. Taking all of these things into account, manufacturing suitable truck tarps can bring challenges to fabricators both in the fabric selection due to fabric performance characteristics and also in the fabrication process itself. With over 30 years of experience in truck tarp fabric development, the team at Value Vinyls has the expertise and knowledge to help you tackle these challenges and get the job done right. Let’s explore some of these challenges along with the Value Vinyls solutions. Delamination is a bad word! Truck Tarps are constantly handled and must be flexible to perform with constant folding, unfolding and maneuvering of the goods they are protecting. Without flexibility the material may be subject to delamination which is the breakdown and separation of the coating from the scrim, ultimately leading to the weakening of the fabric. This issue is common however, not with fabrics from Value Vinyls! Uniquely, all truck tarp fabrics from Value Vinyls have increased flexibility to help minimize delamination and ensure product longevity. Attacking cold-crack! Exposure to below freezing temperatures and even lower wind chill temperatures from wind exposure on the open road can lead to cold-crack and the rapid deterioration of the fabric. Value Vinyls understands the specialized fabric formulation required for truck tarp fabrics to withstand up to -30 degree temperatures from cold-crack and can assure you our products do this. Forget the mold and mildew! When exposed to moisture, truck tarp fabrics can form mold and mildew in the seams and crevices, which can lead to the fabric looking unsightly and longer-term deterioration of the fabric. With the inclusion of anti-fungus and anti-mildew additives to keep bacteria from growing, Value Vinyls truck tarp fabrics are high performing and will look great longer. Combating against UV fading and degradation! Truck Tarps are constantly exposed to the sun’s harmful UV rays. UV leads to color fade as well as degradation of the top coating. Value Vinyls’ formulation includes superior levels of UV treatment to ensure truck tarp fabrics withstand the sun’s harsh rays. Oh, how supple it is! One of the most common concerns for a fabricator is the fabric is hard to handle during the fabrication process. We understand the importance of this and our truck tarp fabric range includes products with a supple hand to make it easier when cutting, sewing or welding during manufacturing and installation. Of course the larger the truck tarp, the harder it will always be to manage! Value Vinyls’ material can be worked on in large yardage needs with no problems. When it comes to industrial vinyl and truck tarp fabrics that are exposed to all types of elements and extreme conditions, the team at Value Vinyls are your trusted advisors. Talk to our experienced team today and explore our extensive range of all-weather truck tarp fabric solutions!

These proven laminated and coated vinyl materials have been specifically engineered to meet and exceed industry standards. Our products have been used at events from small to large by a number of leading manufacturers. The compliment we most frequently receive is the quality of our tent and structure materials. It allows for our customers’ tents to last longer, maintain their integrity, and result in more efficient operating costs. Using the best quality materials along with the best prices allows for the sustainable partnerships which have been maintained for years. Our quality tent vinyl and structure fabrics have been used in the Olympics, US Open Golf Tournament, a multitude of Susan G. Komen events, and even made an appearance in the Guinness Book of World Records! The collection consists of fabric for sidewalls, tent tops, and even fully blockout tents. By manufacturing with the highest quality raw materials we ensure the quality of our fabrics. All products exceed the industry’s strict Fire-Retardancy tests with NFPA-701. Anti-wicking yarns are used to eliminate mildew which can be unsafe and create a major eyesore on the end product. Blockout tent fabric reduces the transmission of light, which gives event tents and structures complete lighting control. This allows for the ultimate curated environment. Products with lacquered finishes allow for easy maintenance and are built with great strength properties. We take pride in our tent vinyl and structure fabrics being used in public events and spaces for people to enjoy. Let us show our price, quality, and service for you.

Mike Trout, Giancarlo Stanton, and Bryce Harper all make catches on walls made from our Soluna material. Pretty cool, huh? Soluna became a preferred choice for stadium walls and Major League Baseball facilities due to it being the best product that offers the best in durability, printability, workability, cost, and warranty. Starting with its construction, Soluna is engineered to be dimensionally stable which eliminates unsightly sagging or puckering. It is perfect for long outdoor durability with nearly indestructible tensile and tear strength. Given that Soluna is primarily used as a fixed wall pad in stadiums, it meets all California standards and flame retardant standards: engineered to meet CSFM Title 19, ATSM E-84 – Class A rating, and NFPA-701. Value Vinyls considers the safety and makeup of each of our products. Soluna is no different with its anti-mildew and anti-bacterial properties.

Value Vinyls is excited to announce the brand new “Candy Red” color addition to our line of Monotec shade cloth. Candy Red has been manufactured due to popular demand and features the industry’s only 15 year UV warranty. It further diversifies our line of Monotec shade cloth which now has 15 popular colors to fit any commercial or residential application. This vibrant and sharp Candy Red shade cloth fabric is a smart choice for apartment and retail developments, parks, water parks, playgrounds, and other public spaces. Monotec is developed to be an “install and forget” shade cloth that is resistant to stretching, sagging, or the need for re-tensioning. Once installed, shade structures utilizing Monotec shade cloth requires no maintenance! No other shade cloth material in the world has these capabilities. Through sun, wind, rain, hail, and the elements Monotec will always look as new and taut as the day it was installed. Why Red is significant: Red-colored fabrics, as a whole, are among our biggest challenges when developing products to withstand the sun’s UV rays, in addition to rain, wind, and other elements. The inherent nature of the color red is the reason why. It is the first color on the spectrum of visible light. Remember 8th grade science class and “ROY G BIV”? Red is the first and principal color that the sun seeks out and attracts to, thus resulting in a faster-paced fade than other colors. But Pro-Knit Industries from Australia (where the sun calls the shots) have painstakingly perfected the formula for a striking and bold Candy Red shade cloth that will last for years. It’s all about the construction: Monotec is manufactured out of 100% round monofilament yarn. Other lesser quality shade cloths use cheaper means which possess only 50% mono-filament and 50% mono-tape yarns. This is why you often see ripped, sagging, faded, and unsightly shade structures. Additionally, given the shape of the yarn it is less likely to build up dirt or debris and its close lock-stitch construction is difficult to penetrate, even preventing vandalism! The quality of Monotec is backed by 10 and 15 year warranties, CSFM-19 certification, and is available in widths up to 128”.
