NORTH SAILS SAIL TYPES
As official North Sails agents, we can advise you on the brand’s complete range of product and are pleased to be able to help you choose the perfect sails and materials for your boat and style of sailing.
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.
NPC is the North Sails woven polyester product family.
North Sails has a long tradition of making dacron sails since the fiber was first introduced as a sailcloth in the 1950’s. Today we control every aspect of the cloth manufacturing processes – using our experience to ensure the highest quality products for both cruising and racing applications. Our North Sails’ materials engineering team focuses on developing and producing sailcloth that will enhance your sailing experience while maximizing the value of your new sail purchase. High-quality weaving and finishing of the perfect combination of yards for the intended purpose, results in high performance with exceptional durability.
