Sunbrella® Fabric for Your Retractable Awning

Back to All Posts

People flock to RetractableAwnings.com for our strong reputation of high-quality product lines, unmatched customer service, extensive customization options, and energy-efficient awnings. These are the remarkable attributes that keep our business thriving with satisfied customers that range from homeowners and business owners looking to improve their outdoor space to Interior Designers, Architects, and Landscape Architects looking to impress their clients. When it comes to retractable patio and deck awnings and retractable patio and pergola covers, we take pride in our laser focus on superior quality and our commitment to excellent support, affordable competitive pricing, and state-of-the-art technology. But, to be the best we must stock the best and that is why we carry a full line of Sunbrella® retractable awning fabric.

 

To fully understand the value of Sunbrella® fabric, it is important to take a look at the company’s history. Founded in the 1960s, Sunbrella® began its mission to create fabrics that are more durable and have a longer lifespan than cotton materials like canvas, which were commonplace then. At the time, they were designing fabrics for boats and needed to create a product that could withstand the elements of sun, heat, salt water, and humidity. As a result, Sunbrella® fabrics created rust-resistant, mold-resistant, long-lasting acrylic fabrics that have a lifespan 10 times that of other manmade fabrics. Today, Sunbrella® textiles are made with incredible beauty, function, performance and design.

 

At RetractableAwnings.com, we are honored to carry the most trusted, reliable name in outdoor fabrics. Our exclusive Sunbrella® fabric collection offers countless benefits to our customers. Some of the most prominent advantages of Sunbrella® fabrics include:

Durability

Engineered with robust performance characteristics, Sunbrella® fabrics are designed with durability at the heart of each and every phase of creation. Attention to detail lays the foundation for the 20-year lifespan that these fabrics offer. From harsh climates to intense sunlight, these fabrics are resistant to fading, mold, water, stains and degradation. With the ability to endure all of the elements, Sunbrella® fabrics maintain their beauty and integrity for years to come.

Beauty and Aesthetic

Unlike their manmade counterparts, Sunbrella® fabrics are soft to the touch as they are woven and gently textured to look and feel like cotton. These attributes make them perfect for outdoor furniture cushions and pillows. Additionally, fade-resistant colors will bring the aesthetic of your outdoor space to new heights. With an enormous selection of patterns and colors, the 100% solution-dyed acrylic fabrics will match any design you choose, creating a stylish and inviting outdoor living area for any home or business.

Safety

Sunbrella® fabrics have been recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation for their UV protection features, boasting a 98% stoppage rate. Enjoying the outdoors with the comfort in knowing that harmful UVA and UVB rays are being blocked is remarkable. Retractable patio and deck awnings, retractable patio covers and pergola covers, retractable canopies, and even free standing retractable awnings are designed for sun, UV, glare, and heat protection. Sunbrella® fabrics help us to offer retractable awnings that are not only the best option for outdoor safety, but lengthen your days with shaded outdoor fun.

Energy Efficiency

The awnings in our product lines are inherently energy-efficient. Sunbrella® fabrics are designed to block sunlight, which reduces heat exposure and creates a cooler environment inside. Energy efficiency with Sunbrella® means reducing peak cooling energy, such as afternoon air conditioning use, by as much as 40% and reducing total cooling energy consumption anywhere from 10% to 60%. When heat is prevented from entering a home or commercial building, energy consumption is reduced and utility bills go down significantly.

 

Factors like durability, beauty, safety, and energy efficiency only scratch the surface of the powerful benefits of RetractableAwnings.com’s products with Sunbrella® fabrics. When you or your client choose to purchase Sunbrella® fabric and our exclusive Sunbrella® fabric collection from RetractableAwnings.com, you will receive a 10-year warranty.
