Canvas Awnings & More – AWNING FABRICS
At Retractable Awning Melbourne, we use only quality fabrics for all our products. Our range of fabrics is also vast, allowing for you to choose a fabric type that’s been designed for a particular use. Our experts will advise you on the most appropriate type of fabric to be used on the shade system you have in mind, whether it’s canvas for blinds or acrylic for a door canopy.
Available Fabric Types
We can supply our shade solutions in the following fabric types:
- Traditional canvas is widely used in door canopies, sun blinds, drop arm awnings, veranda shades and more. Various colours in plain and prints/stripes are available. Traditional canvas blinds and awnings are ideal for blocking daylight as well as heat, making them ideal for bedroom windows. A canvas canopy is also a great choice, since the tension in fabric is not lost over the years.
- Sunbrella acrylic canvas is used on various retractable shade systems such as folding arm awnings, door canopies, conservatory awnings, sunblinds, sun roof awnings and drop arm awnings. It is a lightweight acrylic fabric, yarn dyed and available in many plain colours and patterns.
