Design Solutions: PVC-Free Coated Upholstery


Design Solutions that Deliver

Performance Driven Options

Our “PVC-Free” philosophy prompts us to continually strive to offer the most performance driven + environmentally forward coated options available. Our wide variety of coated products are suitable for high-traffic environments that require the most rigorous durability and cleanability standards.


How to Choose the Right Coated Fabric

Are all coated fabrics vinyl?

NO! It is a common misnomer that all coated fabrics are vinyl. In fact, we are dedicated to being PVC-free and are committed to finding sustainable, high-performing and eco-friendly alternatives.

Are there different kinds of Polyurethanes?

Yes - and they are not equal. All of Carnegie’s Polyurethane coated fabrics are made from the highest quality available, known as Polycarbonate Polyurethane. More durable with a higher resistance to humidity and a greater hydrolysis rating, it outperforms the other polyurethanes on the market.
