ACT invites everyone who creates, specifies, and works with commercial textiles to share their stories, projects, and experiences around texture. Use and follow #ACTwithTexture and #ACTwithTextiles to join us. Learn more here.

ACT is a professional trade association comprised of companies and individuals involved in the design, development, production, promotion and application of textiles for commercial environments.

ACT Voluntary Performance Guidelines make fabric specification easier. Learn what each ACT Registered Certification Mark represents.

NSF/ANSI 336-2018: The Definitive Sustainability Certification Program for Commercial Textiles. This ACT Registered Certification Mark identifies fabrics that conform to the rigors of the multi-attribute standard NSF/ANSI 336 and are third-party certified.

Did you know? Higher abrasion numbers do not necessarily indicate a significant extension of the fabric’s service life. In fact, test results exceeding the ACT high-traffic abrasion guideline have not been shown to be an indicator of increased fabric lifespan.
