The Fabric

Serge Ferrari 502 is a dimensionally stable and exceptionally durable fabric. It is also a heavyweight fabric with excellent water resistance. Its high-tech précontraint technology is made up of two layers: a thick protective coating with equal tension warp and weft and a high-tenacity polyester yarn layer.

The fabric is also recyclable, demonstrating the company’s dedication to environmental protection and sustainable growth.

Serge Ferrari 502 is built with the highest quality raw materials and is designed to resist Australia’s severe climate. It’s been rigorously tested against the elements, and it comes with a 10-year warranty.
