Lewens uses the latest techniques for assembling and finishing awning fabrics. Despite the application of state-of-the-art methods and the utmost care in production, however, creases and folds can never be completely ruled out. The quality of your awning will not be diminished in any way by this.
Quality features and workmanship
Despite all due care being taken in production, finishing and assembly, winding creases (the so-called wrinkle effect, Figs. 1 and 2) and folding creases (which appear as dark stripes when viewed against the light, Fig. 3) are technically unavoidable. Further information about this can be found in the brochure "Richtlinie zur Beurteilung von konfektionierten Markisentüchern" ("Guideline for the Assessment of Ready-Made Awning Fabrics") published by the Industrial Association of Technical Textiles - Roller Shutters - Sun Protection e.V. (ITRS). This describes some of the features of winding and folding creases. These do not constitute any grounds for a complaint. Such visual defects affect neither the technical properties of our awning fabrics nor the service life of the awning fabric.
We recommend retraction of the awning in a dry state.
