(Zero value of the test rig 0,10 mbar)
Main application:
special fabric for frame systems and roller screens
Product groups:
SP - DF - DT - RF - RT - ST - SD
Product description:
Fabric structure:
By extensive research over many years Neher has developed a worldwide unique insect screen: Transpatec.
The thread of the Transpatec fabric consists of a newly developed high-performance yarn, only 0,13 mm strong.
Despite reduced thickness it is very tear resistant and weather resistant. Thanks to the so-called „FX6 factor“.
FX6 is a special additive that is added during the production of the fabric. It makes the super fine high-tech thread extremely
robust and resistant allowing Transpatec to be used in roller screens.
Transpatec is also striking in new directions regarding the fabric structure: Transpatec relies on a new binder-yarn weaving
method. The string shots and warp threads lie on top of each other and are fixed by using a third, only 0.06 mm fine and highly
resistant binder yarn. An extremely high mesh stability and homogeneity of the fabric is achieved already during the weaving
process. In order to increase it even further the resulting interspaces are filled in a process developed for Transpatec and then
fused. This makes all three threads at the cross-over point homogeneous and firmly connected.

Advantage transparency:
This fabric and thread structure has considerable advantages compared to conventional insect screens: higher transparency
and light transmission.
Transpatec impresses especially by a brilliant transparency and is both from the inside and the outside nearly invisible.
Even though Transpatec has a lot of an open area with more than 80%, the individual mesh openings are smaller than in case
of conventional standard fabrics and thus offering a better protection against insects.
The thin threads of Transpatec reduce the fabric area and increase the light transmission.
For comparison: conventional standard fabrics have a fabric area that is approx. 100% larger which affects the air permeability
and light transmission.

Advantage air permeability:
Transpatec has an approx. 140% better air permeability than conventional standard fabrics.
Because of the special structure air turbulences are broken - therefore the air permeability, especially in case of
low wind intensity, is much higher than in case of a standard fabric.
Advantage tear resistance and durability:
Transpatec has a high mesh stability and thus also a very good tear resistance and puncture resistance.
Transpatec is also very weather resistant and durable. This makes Transpatec very suitable for daily use.
The weather and tear resistance has been tested and confirmed by an independent testing institute according to DIN EN ISO
13934-1, DIN EN ISO 11341 Cycle A and DIN EN ISO 4892-2 cycle no. 1.
The diagram shows the tear resistance of Transpatec (right) after a weathering simulation of 5 years compared to a standard
fibreglass fabric.

Transpatec

Advantage PVC-free:
For a normal fibreglass fabric PVC coatings are normally used which especially in the initial phase evaporate softeners.
Transpatec, however, consists of a specially developed PVC free high-performance plastic.
In order to be able to offer a completely PVC free insect screen Neher uses the new FSR beading for the new Transpatec.
Thanks to its high restoring force the fabric is permanently and securely fixed preventing a loosening or flagging of the fabric.
The restoring force in the beading channel of Transpatec in combination with the FSR beading is about 10% higher than in
case of the standard fabric with PVC beading.
PVC free materials are also exclusively used when Transpatec is used in a roller screen.
Advantage Made in Germany:
Transpatec is a qualitiy fabric „Made in Germany“.

air permeability:
3,2 m/s at 0,58 mbar differential pressure
Main application:
special fabric for frame systems with additional pollen protection
Recommendation: Only models from the product groups SP2 and SP5 with brush seals should be used for stentering frames
Product groups:
SP - DF - DT - ST - SD
Product description:
high protection effect against pollen
The Neher pollen screen was awarded the ECARF seal. This seal is to help allergic persons with selecting products and
stands for a tested quality assurance.
The Neher pollen screen received this award for its tested protective effect of more than 99% against birch and grass pollen
and more than 90% against the especially small nettle and ambrosia pollen.
The complete test report can be downloaded at www.neher.de/Test-Polltec
considerably improved air permeability
The air permeability could be improved by up to 300% compared to conventional pollen screens at a wind force of 1
(0.3 - 1.6 m/s).
This is possible thanks to a newly developed mesh concept whereby defined long meshes do not only mechanically protect
against pollen but also through „attraction“ (via a special coating).
extended application
The durability, UV resistance and the improved light transmission and air permeability ensure that the fabric can be used
all year round. Polltec is elastic, robust, weather resistant and, thanks the combination, protects against pollen and insects.
easy cleaning
Thanks to the very smooth surface of the Neher pollen screen Polltec, the rain already washes away most of the pollen.
But you can also clean the fabric very quickly yourself. Simply rinse it under running water and dab dry (no rubbing) using
a lint-free cloth.
pollen on the window glass
When the rain comes into contact with the pollen screen, the pollen will to a large extent, as described above, washed away.
In case of heavy rain, however, it may happen that the rain drops move through the mesh opening of the pollen screen and splash
against the window glass. Once the water has dried up the pollen will stay on the window glass.
In this case we recommend to clean the window glass as fast as possible since the pollen will stick relatively well to the window
glass in the beginning.

Main application:
special fabric for lightwell covers LiSA, ELSA and TERRESA if an improved corrosion resistance and durability is desired.
Product groups:
LI - TE
Product description:
improved corrosion resistance
If a lightwell cover is walked on regularly the protective layer will wear away (so-called white rust), which forms between
the stainless steel fabric and the zinc-coated rust and must then be newly built.
This may cause corrosion.
No potential differences exist between the zinc-coated rust and anodised expanded aluminium metal.
The why there is no rust when expanded metal is used.
higher durability
The Neher expanded aluminium metal consists of a special alloy which is very pressure resistant. It is therefore ideal
for lightwells that are walked on very often as well as in combination with LiSA for lightwells that are travelled on.
