A favorite for awning and marine use, Sunbrella fabric offers excellent fade and weather resistance. Stain-resistant, and liveable, Sunbrella fabrics are worry-free and incredibly long lasting-especially as an awning or canopy. From the bright sun to heavy rain, Sunbrella fabrics are tough enough to withstand the extremes of Mother Nature and remain beautiful season after season. The fabric is soft and easy to work with, water repellant, and guaranteed for five years against loss of color or strength from normal exposure conditions. Sunbrella is available in over 140 beautiful solids and stripes. Click Here to see color options

COOLAROO/SYNTHESIS COMMERCIAL 95

An ultraviolet-stabilized HPDE monofilament and tape knitted fabric, Coolaroo/Synthesis Commercial 95 was developed specifically for use in fabric structures, awnings and shade covers.

Strong and stable, the Coolaroo fabric offers an ideal shade solution for commercial and architectural applications such as school playgrounds, sporting facilities, parking structures, outdoor cafes, car dealerships, outdoor pool areas and more. Designed to “breathe,” it allows cooling breezes to flow through, significantly reducing temperatures beneath. Depending on the color selection, Coolaroo can block out 91% to 96% of the sun’s harmful UV rays, creating a safer, cooler, and more enjoyable outdoor environment.

Coolaroo/Synthesis Commercial 95 offers a combination of maximum sun protection, strength and durability to ensure a long-life and maintenance-free performance. Because it is manufactured using an advanced stentering process that heat-sets the fabric to produce a stable and consistent material, the 9’10” x 164 ft. fabric has minimal shrinkage. The fabric’s knitted construction prevents tearing and fraying, and colors remain vivid for years. Coolaroo fabrics are produced through a unique lock-stitch construction that combines monofilament and tape to produce a dimensionally stable fabric that will not tear or fray if cut.

Backed by a 10-year limited manufacturer’s warranty, Coolaroo/Synthesis Commercial 95 is also mold and mildew resistant. It is available in 13 contemporary colors to complement architectural trends and enhance the existing structure.
