When creating our classy sun shades, sun sails, and pavillions. Caravita will customize our acrylic fabrics based on the customers’ preferences. Let us introduce you to three of our favorite companies when it comes to deciding the fabrics for our products.
First, we have Dickson Constant, a leading European awning fabric company, which creates “innovative textiles for your world.” Dickson has made several lines of 100% solution- dyed acrylic fabrics available in various patterns and colors and made to maintain unbeatable colorfastness . The fabrics hold true to their quality with UV protectant and a Cleanguard water and stain resistant treatment allowing them to live up to their 5 year warranty.
Next, let us tell you about an Italian company we work with called Para. Para’s Tempotest fabrics are also 100% solution-dyed acrylics with a 93-98% filtering effect protecting against UV rays. Awnings and outdoor patio umbrellass made with this fabric reduce heat up to 20% for light colors, 20-30% for pastels, and over 30% for dark colors. The fabrics have been tested for harmful substances under the International Oeko-Tex Association Confidence in Textiles, have TUV Italy certification, are treated with a HI-Clean finishing for mould and water protection, and have a Dupont Teflon Extreme coating for solar protection. All of these components guarantee an 8 year warranty for the fabrics.
Finally, we have our Sattler fabric. Sattler also makes solution-dyed acrylic fabrics, but one of its best qualities is its optional flame retardant coating called Firemaster Plus. This is ideal due to the strict fire codes that have developed in the recent years, particularly in California. It also offers the best protection against rain and a 5 year warranty.
