Commercial Awning Fabric Performance Characteristics
As detailed below, Markilux offers a range of commercial awning fabrics so that every installation will deliver outstanding performance as well as enriching design. Each of our awning fabrics is manufactured to be the best in the world both technically and for color and design. Each awning fabric delivers these important characteristics:
- UV Radiation Protection: Markilux commercial awning fabrics in dark colors afford 100% UV protection. The lighter colors (up to plain white) stop up to 97% of UV rays, providing UV SPF protection of 50+. These figures are based on research conducted by the Hohenstein Research Institute. All Markilux awning covers achieve the highest possible sun protection factor for textiles (UV SPF 50+).
- Color Fastness: Markilux awning fabrics meet color and light-fastness in accordance with ISO 105/B02 for plain fabrics and stripes achieving values of 7 or 8 on a scale of 8. This means they fade less than 1% per year.
- Weatherproof: Markilux commercial awning fabrics are weatherproofed in accordance with ISO 105/B04 for plain fabrics and stripes achieving values of 7 to 8 on a scale of 8. This means that the fabrics are resistant to rain during a short, light shower with good care and a pitch angle of at least 14º. Our awning covers are waterproof and resistant to dirt, grease, and other environmental influences.
- Ultrasonic Fabric Bonding & Laser Cutting: Exclusive to Markilux, with over $1 million invested in each high-tech laser cutter and ultrasonic bonding machine, this process has resulted in stronger seams that fray less, last longer, look better, and stand up to the special demands of motorized retractable awnings and exterior solar shades.
