To make an awning, the canvas is woven from a wide range of materials and is stretched gently over a structure of wood, aluminum or other solid materials. Awnings can be placed above a window, door or along the sidewalk and can extend further to act as a canopy. Awnings are used as shade, protection from rain and snow while adding beauty to the building. They maintain room brightness and shut out heat while keeping indoor fittings from fading.
What kind of materials are awnings made from?
Awnings come in different materials, sizes, and shapes. Acrylic materials are usually non-transparent and bulky but are ideal for an area with high humidity. They are available in a wide range of styles and colors. Vinyl fabrics are more cumbersome than acrylic fabrics but are more translucent. They are resistant to UV light and mildew. Fiber glass awnings can be non-transparent or a little translucent. They would need replacement when they become brittle. Shelters made from natural materials like wood and natural fiber canvas require a great deal of maintenance despite being quite cheap. Metal awnings, very prone to rust and dent were standard in the 20th century. This kind of awnings materials has become outdated.
As time goes on, your awning fabric becomes dirty, housing dirt, dust and other impurities. These pollutants are not suitable for your structure. They feed on the fiber, affecting the strength of the awning fabric and its looks – it starts to fade, becomes less attractive and serves as the breeding ground for lots of impurities. One way to prolong the life and beauty of the material is by cleaning and maintaining.
