  2. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AWNING/MARINE AND FURNITURE GRADE SUNBRELLA FABRICS?
    Awning / Marine grade sunbrella fabrics are 9.25 ounces per square yard. These fabrics have a tighter weave and heavier finishing process then the furniture grade sunbrella. This process causes the fabric to be stiffer along, making it ideal for tops, canopies, and covers. These fabrics have a 5 year warranty against mildew and fade. The furniture grade sunbrella fabrics weight 8.00 oz per square yard. These fabrics are much softer making them ideal for cushions, drapes, upholstery, and shower curtains. These fabrics have a three year warranty against mildew and fade.

  5. WHAT ARE MESH FABRICS?
    They are vinyl coated open weave fabrics. Most “mesh fabrics” are used for slings or for shades to reduce sunlight. The mesh fabrics on our website have a 78% shade factor.

  6. IS THE SUNBRELLA WATERPROOF?
    SUNBRELLA FABRIC IS NOT WATERPROOF, IT IS WATER REPELLANT. THIS MEANS THAT DURING THE FINISHING PROCESS A WATER REPELLANT FINISH IS APPLIED TO THE FABRIC. NORMAL WEAR AND USAGE WILL REDUCE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THIS FINISH AS WILL CLEANING THE FABRIC.

  7. WHAT FABRICS DO YOU RECOMMEND FOR SLINGS?
    We would recommend using the “mesh fabrics” for slings. They are ideal because they are open weave meaning water will go through fabric.
