Kansas Patent of the Month – March 2021

Hunting blinds, tents, and other similar structures are typically formed of flexible yet durable and water-resistant materials. A great variety of materials have been used to successfully construct these structures, but each has their limitations. Some restrict airflow while others fail to block winds effectively. Tru-View LLC. has designed a unique material which will remove these limitations.

Their mesh material is made up of multiple layers. The base layer includes polyester yarns woven together. Then the mesh is coated in acrylic on either side, followed by a coating of silicone and ethylene vinyl acetate. Patterns and dark colors are printed on both sides of the fabric. The patterns and combination of materials help to make the fabric durable, water-resistant, and directional transparency. The transparency is made so those outside the tent cannot see in, while those inside can still see out.The mesh hole size allows air flow without compromising water-resistance. This material provides optimum protection and function for temporary flexible structures like tents.
