Sunbrella acrylic fabric: #1 solution-dyed acrylic fabric in America
There are myriad ways to include Sunbrella canvas in your outdoor plans: Awnings, canopies, cabanas, privacy screens, decorative panels, and room dividers are just some of its many uses.
With more than 100 beautifully woven canvas solid and striped fabrics from which to choose, Sunbrella lets you achieve whatever look you want, whether contemporary or traditional, dressy or casual.
Thanks to solution dyeing, Sunbrella's colored canvases resist fading and won't wash out. That's because the colors are added to the liquid acrylic mixture, becoming an intricate part of the fiber and ultimately the canvas. The vivid hues are identical on both sides of the fabric, and they stand up to sun, rain, wind, and pollutants that can make other colors fade or run. Plus, Sunbrella is highly soil-resistant.
Used on awnings, Sunbrella can block 75 percent of the sun's heat and reduce a room's temperature from 8 to 15 degrees.* Laboratory-controlled and outdoor exposure tests have shown that the air underneath a Sunbrella awning is 22 percent cooler than the air under coated awnings.** Sunbrella is not coated but has pores that allow air and moisture to escape. Because of its outstanding breathability, condensation is never a problem. With the use of Sunbrella, air conditioning savings can reach up to 25 percent.***
