A textile carousel is a great way to store large rolls of upholstery, vinyl and fabric. With a multitude of industrial applications, a textile carousel is an asset to any production line.

In addition to efficiently storing bulky or oversized rolls of materials, the carousel protects the materials from damage, saves floor space and streamlines the production flow.

The carousel can be equipped to dispense the fabrics onto a cutting table where workers can then begin measuring, cutting and handling the fabrics.

There are many types of materials and applications that can be stored, including:

  • Upholstery fabrics for automotive and furniture applications
  • Textiles for canopies or awnings
  • Vinyl for convertible tops or boat covers
  • Tarps
  • Rolled Fiberglass
  • Woven, non-woven fabrics
  • Technical fabrics

“The team at Southwest Solutions were nothing short of fantastic. First meeting with Craig, I received a customized design, in person, based on my office needs while still maintaining an efficient layout and being cost effective. Craig explained everything clearly, allowing me to understand that as modular mill-work, I would be able to move it if I ever changed offices, but without the added sales pressure to immediately make a decision. Once I had decided, I worked with Chris who assisted in picking out the finishes and scheduling the delivery and installation. The professionalism of Craig and Chris spoke volumes and I would highly recommend anyone looking to transform or fit-out an office to contact Southwest Solutions.”
