Acrylic awning fabric (standard)

The tried and tested acrylic awning fabric is manufactured from 100% spinning nozzle dyed brand acrylic fabric. That means that the colour pigments – unlike in classic yarn dyeing – are applied during the fibre production. This ensures reliable protection against damaging UV radiation and permanently guarantees brilliant colours / constant weather and light-fastness. Furthermore, the acrylic fabric is especially tear-resistant and also dirt and water-repellent thanks to its impregnation with a special protective agent. The reliable solution for long-term outdoor use.

  • Water-proof up to 300-370 mm water column, EN 20811
  • High colour and weather fastness (7-8) of 8
  • Water and dirt-repellent
  • 100% acrylic 285–300 g/m²
  • Commercial printing possible on canopy and valance

Acrylic awning fabric LUMERA

The innovative Lumera acrylic fabric is woven with the special CBA fibre (Clean Brilliant Acrylic). Along with all the benefits of the acrylic fabric, this provides even more bonuses. The acrylic multifilament fibre has a smoother and denser surface. This means that the colours turn out richer and more radiant and the fabric’s luminance is increased for a long time.

  • Water-proof up to 460 mm water column, EN 20811
  • High colour and weather fastness (7-8) of 8
  • Water and dirt-repellent
  • 100% acrylic 290 g/m²
  • Commercial printing possible on canopy and valance

  • Water-proof up to 350 mm water column, EN 20811
  • High light and weather fastness (7-8) of 8
  • Chlorine fastness (4-5) of 5
  • Polyester mesh with SNC impregnation
  • Surface weight approx. 310 g/m²
  • Water and dirt-repellent

Frame colours for masts and struts

You can find over 200 RAL colours here.

High-grade hub

High stability: The Samara parasol is equipped with an especially strong and solid aluminium hub. Powder coating is available in desired RAL colour.

Smooth crank

Extremely easy to use: Samara can be opened and closed with a detachable stainless steel crank. The mechanism inside the mast ensures that the parasol can be closed easily with minimal physical effort.

Sophisticated telescopic system

The advantage: the telescopic system extends the mast when closing! Tables and patio furniture can stay where they are.

Stable struts

The parasol struts, made of 2 mm thick aluminium tube, are reinforced with special profiles in sections under particular strain.
