Retractable fabric awnings are easy to come by. A quick online search will reveal countless options of fabrics, all claiming to be superior to one another. As such, navigating through the collection of awning alternatives can become tiresome and overwhelming. The good news, however, is that your search is almost over. At RetractableAwnings.com, our fabric versatility is only matched by the quality, value, and style of each and every fabric choice. With an enormous selection, you are guaranteed to find the right awning fabric for your home, business, or institution.

Are you looking for a retractable fabric awning that is UV-resistant? What about a fabric that is damage resistant to things like cleaning products and salt water? We know what you’re thinking, “what about that massive storm coming? Will the awning fabric be able to withstand that?” Rest assured that our awning fabric is the best of the best. Our solution-dyed acrylic fabrics are manufactured in Europe and the USA by the big brands in the industry like Dickson, Para, and Sunbrella. We don’t use polyester, canvas, duck, cotton or regular acrylic – only solution dyed fabrics and most definitely nothing from China due to extremely low quality, minimal or no warranties, lack of specifications and certifications, etc. We only source the most high-quality materials to ensure the homes and businesses that purchase our products are extremely happy.

Nevertheless, most companies do not share the treasured RetractableAwnings.com philosophy. Many of our competitors often neglect to even mention the fabric manufacturers’ names on their websites. Why? They must not work with the reputable, world-class fabric manufacturers that we do. While it may sound boastful, the truth is that we’re proud of our awning fabric and we stand by our product’s quality, style, and value. In fact, we offer a lifetime warranty against seam separation. That’s how confident we are in our retractable awning fabrics.

Today, we’re doing a quick spotlight on Dickson fabrics. Since the company opened its doors in 1836, they have stayed true to their dedication to quality and style. As time goes on and technology continues to change, Dickson is able to consistently remain at the forefront of outdoor fabrics equipped to last long and withstand rougher elements. Here are some of the most impressive aspects of the Dickson fabrics that we use at RetractableAwnings.com:

  • Solution-dyed acrylic fabrics

  • Soft texture

  • Solar protection to guard against UV (ultraviolet) A and B radiation – some of the highest UV ratings around

  • Water repellent/water-resistant, maintains bright colors, and resist dirt and soil staining

  • Performance tested to withstand light rain on retractable awnings

  • Offering several different styles, almost 100 different types

  • Reduces indoor temperatures, thus reducing the usage of air conditioning and saving our customer money

  • Committed to their “green” policies of recycling, energy management, and the reduction of gas emissions

We could truly go on and on about the remarkable features inherent in all of Dickson fabrics. For us, using the very best fabrics allows us to offer our clients the largest selection, unmatched versatility, and the perfect style to match their home or business.
