CMYUK has launched Arkutex, its new specialist range of surface textiles for the built environment. These materials enable digital print businesses to offer their existing client base an elevated aesthetic with an array of stunning new solutions that can be produced using their existing digital production technology.

CMYUK has also announced that it has retained the services of KSS, an award-winning architectural & design practice, to design a new dedicated Arkutex showroom and contractor training centre in Bloxwich, home to its national logistics and distribution hub.

This D&B construction will showcase multiple environments that simulate all target applications and markets for surface textiles. This facility will also be an innovation exhibit for establishing a nationwide community of specifiers and contractors.

Arkutex materials

Arkutex finishes, techniques, and design possibilities transform a variety of environments including retail, corporate, hospitality, leisure, heritage, events, exhibitions, education, and healthcare amongst others.

Applications include single piece stretch fabrics that simulate solid structures, walls and ceilings, enabling digitally printed designs or plain textiles to fabricate spatial areas, which extend the scope and potential of surface interiors. Paste-up textiles, furniture, exterior facades, projection backdrops, magnetic surfaces, pin walls and more, are all made possible through these materials.

Arkutex products bestow a premium feel to a locality. Vast (up to 5m wide), one-piece, no join surface coverings impart an imperceptible yet powerful ambience for truly impactful walls and ceilings. They add value to interior spaces too, by incorporating features including backlit walls and panels, while additional elements such as acoustic grade sound management, lighting, H-VAC, and telecoms systems can be safely and easily integrated.

Fabric architecture does away with the inconvenience that traditional fixing and refurbishment demand. Quick and easy to install, mess, disruption and downtime pressures can now be consigned to the past.

This brand meets rigorous health & safety, fire and environmental certifications, and is specification-ready for all your interior and exterior projects.

The Arkutex portfolio of surface textiles represents a fully specified opportunity for our clients to access new applications in multiple market sectors. Personalised interiors and décor using environmentally responsible materials is a high growth area and architectural textiles extend this trend even further. Creating new innovations both in design and installation, the scope and versatility that Arkutex offers, provides a compelling narrative with the potential to secure greater profitability and build more resilience into our customers’ business operations.”

We are delighted to launch this new specialist division and are particularly excited to be working with KSS to establish a new showroom and fitting training centre. This new facility will showcase the full potential of textile architecture applications that will engage and inspire the high-end architectural/D&B community and associated media.”
