John Boyle & Co. Inc. is offering a new grommet-setting machine called “Ace in the Hole” that makes setting grommets easy. A single stroke of the machine cuts the grommets, so there is no need to hand-cut and set grommets. The machine comes with a No. 2 cutting and setting die, and dies for No. 0 to No. 4 self-piercing grommets are available as well.
John Boyle also has added three new colors to its BTF-19™ PVC-coated fabric. Tent manufacturers can choose pearl white, terra cotta or emerald from the line, which now contains 18 different colors. BTF-19 is a 19-ounce, 85-inch wide fabric that is top-coated with PVDF to protect from premature fading and UV rays.
