Why Choose an Acrylic Awning
There are many reasons why acrylic awnings are popular. They can withstand high temperatures, are scratch-resistant, offer good quality light transmission and are high impact.
The reason for these attributes is that acrylic is a type of plastic. The fabric consists of plastic threads made of a polymer fibre that is created from fossil fuels during a chemical process, not dissimilar to the production of nylon and polyester fabrics.
Apart from aesthetic appeal, fixed acrylic awnings offer homeowners many benefits. They are effective energy cost savers, reducing temperatures by up to 15 degrees and reducing air conditioning costs by a whopping 25 per cent.
The efficacy of acrylic’s impact resistance translates into protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays that fade and damage a home’s interior furnishings.
Acrylic awnings are durable, outlasting more traditional fabrics such as cotton blend canvas.
The polymer fibre repels water and is particularly effective in humid areas because it resists mildew.
The simplicity of erecting an acrylic awning makes it an ideal project for DIY enthusiasts.
Apart from patios and verandas, acrylic awnings can be successfully applied to most outdoor lifestyle spaces.
Acrylic awnings are available in different finishes and styles. The Reboss awning factory outlet also offers a barrel vault or domed awning range that is custom-made to client requirements. The attractive curved-shaped domes are popular covers for larger outdoor living spaces and are available in clear or tinted acrylic.
Awning prices depend on the selected shape and size but remember that an acrylic awning can save energy costs and reduce sun damage to homes and interior furnishings.
