A product for the future
Arketex is proud to release Arkelin for walls and ceilings, a true revolution in architecture.
As a valuable alternative for conventional ceilings, Arkelin is acoustic, environmentally responsible, made entirely in France from the plant to the final fabric, and addresses all particular architectural needs and building standards.
A highly virtuous plant makes this an environmentally-friendly product par excellence. 80% of the world’s flax crop grows in Normandy, demanding neither water nor inputs. The linen is woven in the Vosges département, and then delivered to Arketex in Mulhouse for creative and engineering work.
After months of testing and a stringent approval process (testing of application, fire resistance, acoustic performance, fastness of ink and absence of deformation over time), Arketex is proud to present its new range of technical textiles for buildings.
Linen, the oldest textile in the world, is now the most fashionable, greenest and most innovative plant fibre of the day. Linen is a French product par excellence. It does not generate waste and grows naturally, nurtured only by rain, wind and sunlight. It is biodegradable, breathable and strong, and is an excellent sound insulator that is perfectly suitable for eco-construction and interior fittings. Arketex gives you an opportunity to be part of the environmental revolution in building thanks to Arkelin, a perfect alternative for conventional material to finish your walls and ceilings
