Sunbrella Awning Fabric

Sunbrella Awning fabric is an American Made type of high-performance outdoor fabric that is specifically designed for use in awnings, canopies, other shade structures and marine applications. Here are a few benefits of using Sunbrella Awning fabric:

  1. It's made in the USA! Using American made products in our manufacturing process is and will always be one of Patriot Awnings core beliefs. Sunbrella is made by Glen Raven in Anderson, SC. Of course, not all awnings or canopies are appropriate for Sunbrella. Our salesperson can help you pick the right fabric for your custom awning or custom canopy project.

  2. Durable and long-lasting: Sunbrella Awning fabric is made from 100% solution-dyed acrylic fibers, making it resistant to fading, mildew, and UV rays. This means that the fabric will retain its color and strength for a long time, even in outdoor unshaded environments.

  3. It's a breathable fabric. Being that it's not waterproof, but water resistant, Sunbrella will dissipate heat more so than a vinyl material.

  4. Water-resistant: Sunbrella Awning fabric is water-resistant, which means that in most cases, it won't leak underneath the awning. If we were to sew a bag together and fill it full of water, however, sunbrella would eventually come through the fabric. This makes it a great option for awnings, and other shade structures that will be exposed to the elements. Not so much a great option for outdoor dining. However, there are more waterproof options available in the Sunbrella line of products such as Sunbrella Plus and Seamark.

  5. Easy to clean and maintain: Sunbrella Awning fabric is easy to clean and maintain, making it a practical solution for most projects. The fabric can be easily cleaned with soap and water, and it can be sealed with FabricGuard 303.

  6. Wide range of colors and patterns: Sunbrella Awning fabric is available in a wide range of colors and patterns, allowing you to choose a design that complements your home or commercial building.

  7. Environmentally friendly: Sunbrella Awning fabrics are made from 100% solution-dyed acrylic fibers, which are recyclable, and Sunbrella also uses a responsible manufacturing process to minimize the environmental impact.

Overall, Sunbrella Awning fabric is a high-performance, durable, and versatile fabric that is ideal for use in awnings, canopies, and other shade structures. It's resistance to fading and mildew, water-resistance, easy maintenance and wide range of designs make it a popular choice among homeowners, business owners and architects.
