Awnings with allure
TenCate has a long track record as a fabric supplier to awning manufacturers for both the private- and the project market. TenCate fabrics are used for several awning applications, particularly in Southern Europe. The coated fabric not only offers protection from the sun, but is also extremely weather-resistant and decorative.
Awnings are a seasonal product, with a demand that can fluctuate according to the weather. The company's management of the entire production process - manufacture, development, procurement, sales and logistics all take place under one roof - enable TenCate to adequately respond to fluctuating market demand. A wide variety of colours, stripes and designs are available. Obviously, the fabric can also be supplied in accordance with the client's specific wish for other designs, or with special printing.
High-grade polyester fabric
TenCate has developed special types of fabric for the awning market, in which a high-grade polyester is used. This fabric, provided with an acrylic coating, constitutes a unique combination employed by TenCate. It can be woven into a smooth fabric and - in combination with the acrylic coating - is extremely waterproof. The fabric is highly resistant to changing weather conditions. Consequently, it is ideally suited for awnings and, as a result of its waterproof properties, it is particularly suited for use in the large terrace awnings often encountered in the hotel and catering industry.
Colourful and weather-resistant
Awning fabric made from polyester retains its shape and is very stable. The fabric has an excellent colour-fastness and is rendered water and soil-repellent by means of a special finish. Consequently, unlike many other materials, awnings made from polyester do not have to be raised for every shower. Moreover, in part due to the water and soil-repellent finish and the special coating, the fabric can be cleaned very easily.
