Different types of fabrics

Our fabric collection consists of more than 200 different designs. Thereby you can choose between different materials and qualities of fabrics.

Commonly VARISOL awnings are equipped with fabrics that are either made of:

  • acrylic or polyester
  • SOLTIS or Star Screen
  • polyvinyl or special fabrics

Below we provide some information about the characteristics and possible applications of the different materials.

Expand/CollapseAcrylic and Polyesters

Acrylic (Polyacrylic)

All (poly-)acrylic fabrics, that you can find in our current fabric collection, are made of solution-dyed yarn.

  • fabric weight 300 g/m²
  • solution-dyed fabrics are dyed while the fabric is being spun, what causes more durable and radiant colours
  • a special impregnation layer protects the fabric from oil, dirt and fungal infestation
  • due to its high weather- and UV-resistance, acrylic fabric is known as the best outdoor yarn

particularly suitable for:

retractable awnings (semi-cassettes and full cassettes)

conservatory awnings

patio awnings

window anwings (blinds)

Polyester

Just like polyacrylic fabrics, polyesters that are fitted on VARISOL awnings also consist of solution-dyed yarn.

  • fabric weight 280 g/m²
  • solution-dyed fabrics are dyed while the fabric is being spun, what causes more durable and radiant colours
  • a special impregnation layer protects the fabric from oil, dirt and fungal infestation
  • due to the high stretchability of polyesters, fitted fabrics do have an enduring tautness

particularly suitable for:

retractable awnings (semi-cassettes and full cassettes)

conservatory awnings

patio awnings

window anwings (blinds)

Expand/CollapseScreen (SOLTIS and Star Screen)

SOLTIS

SOLTIS is available in two different qualities (SOLTIS 86 and SOLTIS 92).

  • fabric weight: 380 g/m² (SOLTIS 86) and 420 g/m² (SOLIS 92)
  • the material is of low flammability according to standards DIN 4102, NFP 92-503 and BS 476: Part 7: 1997
  • coated with polyvinyl chloride (PVC)

SOLTIS 86 stands out due to its ability to reduce heat, whilst offering a decent level of translucency.

particularly suitable for:

conservatory awnings

window anwings (blinds)

 

 

 

SOLTIS 92: You can equip your awning with SOLTIS 92 for an extra charge. This fabric, which is known for its heat protection and anti-dazzle effect, is conform to the German ordinance on workplaces (ArbStättV).

particularly suitable for:

conservatory awnings

window anwings (blinds)

Tempotest Star Screen

Tempotest Star Screen was developed by Parà recently. It entirely consists of solution-dyed polyester and is clear of polyvinyl chloride.

  • fabric weight: 220 g/m²
  • the material is of low flammability according to standards DIN 4102, NFP 92-503 and BS 476: Part 7: 1997
