But what awning to choose ?
Awnings come in roughly 3 qualities
1. Hardware store quality
2. Economic range quality
3. Pemium high end quality
- What do we call the hardware store quality? (Leroy Merlin, Bricomart, Amazon, Bauhaus etc) These awnings come in standard colours with vinyl fabric. They are suitable for small areas. Colours will fade after 1 or 2 years. Vinyl fabric started as the only available awning fabric but is now considered to be outdated. Pro-shade will not maintain or install these types of awnings.
2. Economic range awnings. These are the most popular awnings. Therefore they ar often installed by professionals. These awnings come in a standard range of colours with acrylic fabric. That is why they are suitable for all areas. Colours will not fade and have a lifespan of more than 8 years. These fabrics are often supplied by Dickson, Sunbrella or Sauleda
3. Premium high end awnings. These are high end awnings designed by the best engineers. Often manufactured in Germany. This is the reason why Pro-shade works amongst others with Weinor-Griesser and Caravita . You will find these awnings at Villas, hospitality and office buildings. And the most recent development is that they use high-tech polyester composition fabrics.
