Then choose an Aristocrat® Awning. Our fabric is 100% solution-dyed acrylic. This means that the individual fabric fibers are dyed before they are sewn together into an awning. When fabric is solution-dyed, the color goes all the way through the fabric instead of only being on the outside. As a result, the colors last much longer without fading and appear vibrant for years, even when exposed to direct sunlight. Awnings made from solution-dyed acrylics also
Resist rot, discoloration and mildew
Retain their shape and texture
Can be cleaned easily with a mild bleach solution
The alternative to solution-dyed acrylics is canvas. Although less expensive, awnings made from canvas are unable to withstand the elements like those made from solution-dyed acrylics. Canvas awnings are much more susceptible to mold, mildew and rot, and they will quickly fade in direct sunlight.
Which one of these awnings held up better over time?
The picture on the left shows a faded canvas awning that has started to grow mold. The picture on the right shows an Aristocrat® Awning made from solution-dyed acrylics. Isn’t it worth the extra money to know that your awning will last much longer when exposed to the elements?
