Awnings are not only an excellent aesthetic choice for outdoor spaces, but they’re a functional one as well. A high-quality awning can provide much-needed shade, a cooler area to relax, protection from the elements, and even UPF rated protection from skin-damaging UV rays. But how do you know which fabric is the best? Besides your preference in colors, patterns, and texture for your outdoor space, there are qualities such as durability, tear resistance, mold resistance, and ease of maintenance that will also factor in. That is why it is important to understand how awning fabrics have matured through the years, and which fabrics have risen to the top.
A more effective approach to developing a fabric that can survive the outdoors is solution-dyed acrylic. With this type of fabric, the colorless fibers are dyed in acrylic pigments so that the color goes all the way through the fiber. This is done before the fibers become yarn — and in some cases before the fiber itself is even formed — and woven into cloth, which in turn means that the cloth itself is dyed all the way through.
Because the fabric is dyed all the way through, this type of acrylic fabric is highly resistant to fading (which has always been a major problem for outdoor fabrics). The resulting fabric is soft to the touch, as opposed to the plastic feel of coating-based fabrics, and highly water resistant, also. Many have compared the feel of acrylic to cotton or polyester fabric.
Awnings made from Solution-dyed acrylic fabrics are resistant to mold and mildew growth and are easy to keep clean so long as dirt and grime is not allowed to build up.
There are several major brands of awning fabric available, all with their own special features. Each of the brands listed is solution-dyed acrylic, which is the most advanced and effective awning material to date.
One of the best-known brands of awning fabric is Sunbrella, which has been around for almost fifty years. Their awning fabrics are solution-dyed with highly UV-stable pigments for long-lasting color. They also provide excellent UPF protection to further protect the humans beneath it from the effects of the sun (although it will not take the place of sunscreen) and most of their outdoor fabrics have The Skin Cancer Foundation Seal of Recommendation.
An Italian company Para’s line of solution-dyed acrylic fiber awning fabrics are available in either water-resistant or waterproof options and offer varying degrees of UV protection for those taking refuge under the shade of their fabrics. Their awning fabrics are easy to clean using a mild soap (e.g., Ivory or Woolite) and warm water.
RECacril, an import from Spain made by Recasens, is another outstanding awning fabric. It is made from solution-dyed acrylic yarn for long-lasting color, and it is woven in such a way to maximize its tear strength and tensile strength for a highly durable, tear-resistant fabric. This method, known as the Infinity Process, makes it highly water resistant and dimensionally stable so that your awning will last long and stay beautiful.
Of all the brands we carry, RECacril is the most tightly woven, due to a smaller yarn and a correspondingly higher thread count. This means their fabric is more water resistant as well as being particularly durable. So to the extent that we recommend any of these brands over the others, RECacril is on the top of our list. It comes at an upgraded price
RECacril is also highly antimicrobial, making it resistant to both mildew and mold. In addition, it is UPF rated to aid in protection from the negative effects of the sun on human skin and is very easy to maintain.
There are several recurrent themes to be noticed in the discussion of awning fabrics, including the following:
● The dye goes all the way through the fabric
● Fabrics are available in bright colors to match just about any outdoor decor requirements
● They are highly resistant to fading and UV degradation
● Many brands provide UPF protection
● They are either water resistant or waterproof
● They are easy to clean with no special chemicals required
● They do not promote the growth of mold or mildew
● They are durable and long-lasting, with a 10-year warranty for just about every brand
● They can usually handle 2000+ hours indirect sun before fading begins
Some other positive aspects of solution-dyed acrylic include its natural resistance to shrinkage and how quickly it dries. In fact, acrylic itself is considered a moisture-wicking fabric and can actually repel water (making it a hydrophobic material). In addition, acrylic materials are so soft that they are being used more and more for indoor furniture.
Awnings are for Sun Shade Purposes Only.
When it rains, be sure to RETRACT your awning.
As a reminder, wind sensors are not a fail safe. It is not designed to
retract with only 1 jog.
Your awning has to jog 2 or 3 times in a row for about 6-8 inches
before the awning will retract.
Most remotes operate awnings on channel one,
still not working, check the GFI button on your outlet.
As much as we all love a good BBQ, don't use the grill directly under your awning. The extreme heat could damage your fabric-or even worse-it could catch on fire.
Don't hang plants from your awning. The extra weight could damage your roller bar, fabric and even your motor which will cause your awning to
not operate properly.
