Awning Fabrics

Awning Fabric

There are many harmful effects from exposure to UV rays in direct sunlight, one of the main harmful effects is leading to skin cancer. This is why you need a good quality fabric on your sun awning so you can enjoy the sun for a long period time whilst still being protected from the UV rays. We provide different ranges of top quality awning fabrics, including the popular Acrylic & Sunsilk Range.

Our Acrylic awning fabrics are 100% solution dyed fabrics. Solution-dying is the process of adding colour to acrylic fibres during manufacturing while they are in a liquid state. Colour goes all the way through the fabric not just on the surface (like canvas for example) so the appearance is maintained after several years. This is what helps the fabric maintain its colour and prevents fading for a long life and is easy to clean. Due to the solution dying, these high quality awning fabrics also resist cracking from sunlight exposure and other elements. The fabric is then woven which makes the fabric very breathable so they can dry very quickly when there are rain showers.

All of our acrylic awning fabrics are also teflon coated which repels water so rain just runs off the front of the awning into the integrated gutter for efficient drainage.

The solution dyed acrylic fibre will not support the growth of mildew or fabric rot as some traditional materials would.

Our SUNSILK awning fabrics are made from a 100% high-tech polyester which has an average sun protection value of UPF 50. The SUNSILK range is a modern fabric collection that is a very strong material which lets a lot of light through without compromising the UV protection. These also have a teflon coating which helps awning fabrics to repel water, dirt, grease etc as mentioned earlier.

There are many patterns & styles in each range to cater for all individual preferences and to be in keeping with current colours and settings. 

The awning fabrics don’t require any special maintenance or cleaning products, you can use warm, soapy water and a hose pipe to keep the awning fabric in optimal condition for many years of luxury & enjoyment.
