EM Membranes

When considering a lighter weight, high performance Genoa, Jib or Mainsail for local club or offshore racing, nothing beats our E-Tech Membrane series.

What differentiates this from off-the-shelf cloth is that we design and manufacture the fabric from start to finish in our membrane facility. This way we control the fibre density and location throughout the sail. This saves weight a lot and the sail loads more evenly requiring less adjustment to trim.

We use Twaron and Carbon fibres combined with Mylar and adhesives. These are laminated under high pressure to remove any excess resin to ensure the best fusing laminate available. E-Tech Membrane sails are also available with internal taffeta where extra durability is required.

While we are engineering your custom fabric, a sail mold is being created using a 3-D program by our in-house designers. A smooth aerodynamic profile will evolve to become a finished product that is custom built. From stitching to hand finishing, we assure you that our sailmakers have taken great pride while crafting your sail.
