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

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.
