Fabrics and Materials
Protective awning covers are technical fabrics that are intended to be decorative along with their functional task. Awning covers are high performance products that meet with strict technical requirements. Each production undergoes extensive laboratory tests. The fabrics are designed to be waterproof, however they are intended to be pitched at an angle of 14° to stop water stagnating and gathering, potentially damaging the awning.
All of our products come with specialist fabric covers so that you know you're getting the best possible all round product. With fabrics from Markilux and Weinor, our awnings and blinds are colourful, yet durable, with a range of possible styles and fabrics to choose from.

Markilux claim to look for inspiration in nature for new ways to raise the bar again and again for their customers, and are currently incorporating the effect of the lotus flower into their sunvas and sunsilk SNC fabric.
