- light-resistant and colourfast
- weatherproof and rot resistant
- water-repellent and fast-drying
- Teflon and Cleangard finishing makes them resistant to environmental influences

Screen fabric and Soltis 92
Screen fabrics consist of PVC-coated fibreglass processed to form a twill. The twill weave is what gives this fabric its particular texture and appearance. Available as "serge" with an openness factor of 3% and "serge 1%" with just 1% openness factor.
Soltis 92 is a composite with a base of high-tenacity polyester yarn. This fabric offers an openness factor of 4%.
