NORTH PANEL LAMINATE
North Panel Laminate sailcloth is produced using the most advanced laminator in the world. Our machine was designed by our own materials engineers and purpose-built for laminating sailcloth. North Sails has been manufacturing exclusive cloth in our Sri Lanka facility since 2010. A fully integrated and powerful computer code controls the entire laminating process. Our perfectionist level of control ensures the highest possible quality laminated materials.
The magic of North Paneled Laminates is found in our Exact x-ply machine, which we introduced in 2014. A rotating creel unique to North Sails, it allows on-the-fly application of variable-angle x-scrims, enabling laminate constructions that cannot be copied elsewhere for an entirely new generation of scrim-style sails.
Our proprietary construction process allows for exceptional laminate bonding with minimal use of adhesives. The resulting product is functionally superior sails; lighter weight, higher strength, and increased durability compared to non-North laminates.
