Technical information

A summary of fabric grades and properties of the wovens in detail.

Awning fabrics

Acrylic materials are characterised by their exceptional durability and a pleasant feel to the fabric.

Polyester fabrics are particularly elastic and have a pleasant, soft finish. Superior elastic recovery behaviour ensures the fabric remains smooth.

Acrylic and polyester fabrics from Lewens are:

  • light-resistant and colourfast
  • weatherproof and rot resistant
  • water-repellent and fast-drying
  • Teflon and Cleangard finishing makes them resistant to environmental influences
  • heat- and cold-resistant
  • tear-resistant
  • air-permeable
  • easy to care for

Soltis 92 is a composite with a base of high-tenacity polyester yarn. This fabric offers an openness factor of 4%.
