Panaz, a leading manufacturer of high-quality, beautiful contract fabrics for the cruise sector, will be attending this year’s Cruise Ship Interiors Design Expo Americas 2023 at the Miami Beach Convention Center. Throughout the show, which is taking place on 6 – 7 June, Panaz’s team will be available on stand 801 to showcase its standout Neon Noir range, whilst discussing the importance of fire retardancy and the benefits of antimicrobial protection for fabrics for latest industry projects.

Panaz’s Neon Noir collection is influenced by environmental issues, including single-use plastic waste, and the iconic graphics of the 1980s. Arranged within a setting of electrifying colours and metamorphosising nature with symbols of waste and decay, the collection of high-performance contract fabrics combines bold images with powerful messages. 

Three standout designs

Neon Noir features three unique digital print designs that can be printed on a variety of basecloth options. The designs are suitable for upholstery, curtains, cushions, and accessories. This provides designers with the freedom to incorporate the collection into a variety of design schemes as a leading feature. They can be featured in a range of designs and spaces such as cabins or restaurants.

Neon Noir can be printed on basecloths that provide contract quality flame retardancy, as well as Panaz’s unique Shieldplus antimicrobial technology. This delivers long-lasting protection against viruses and bacteria. The basecloths have also undergone the Wyzenbeek Rubs testing process, demonstrating the fabrics’ ability to meet the requirements of the most demanding environments.

“At Panaz we know that the cruise industry presents designers with a really challenging commercial environment. With Panaz’s experience and commitment to innovation and design, we are positioned at the forefront of industry advancements and are committed to long-lasting, productive relationships with our clients, providing them with technically superior fabrics without design compromise. This is why we are delighted to be able to offer engaging and evocative designs like Neon Noir that still meet the needs of the cruise industry.”

Panaz will also be discussing the fire retardancy specifications required for the cruise industry, including Marine Standard IMO testing as well as the EU Marine Equipment Directive (MED) Wheelmark and the importance of achieving both standards, without compromising on aesthetics.
