All About Awning Fabric And The Advantages?

It's common knowledge that it is important to shelter ourselves from adverse weather conditions. These could be hot sun, rain and even wind as they cause harm to our skin especially in the case of the sun which has harmful ultraviolet rays and the wind which removes moisture from our skins making it feel dry. Awning fabric is one of the commonly used fabrics to offer protection against these elements. In a Singapore, awning fabric is used in cafes and restaurants which have their space extended outside. This increases space for eateries and caters for customers who like eating in open spaces. It is also used to offer shade at the windows and doors.

Awning Fabric

Awning has been in existence for over a hundred years and was first used in Syria and Egypt to protect food from birds and weather conditions. They then spread across the world and of course the rest of us found new uses for it. Awnings are made using vinyl, polyester, cotton, light weight metal, polymer and acrylic amongst other materials. Awning fabrics can be tailored to suit the particular conditions of your location and conform to their use. There are also those made with canvas which is slightly coated and the canvas makes them washable.

In Singapore however, the climatic conditions are very hot and humid thus most of the awning here is made from molded awning which is stronger as it consists of aluminum and plastic. This is good for the areas with drastic weather shifts. They also block off ultraviolet rays totally which is very necessary here.

Other types of awnings available in the country are made from light mesh fabric knitted from polyester and vinyl coated. These are suitable when you need some amount of light to pass through and are best used at windows. They also keep away a significant amount of ultraviolet rays. The vinyl coat makes care of this fabric easier as when it rains you only need to wipe it down and it's good to go. This awning breathes and this is a good property for regulating heat.

Some of the advantages of using awning are:

• It's cheaper to purchase and set up compared to concrete buildings and hence can be used for car shades, patios etc easily.
• They help cool off the house by several degrees if used on doors and windows. Many users have claimed that their electricity bills went down as they often don't need air conditioning.
• Awnings are a blessing for the entertainment establishments like restaurants as they can be set up in various amazing designs and one can also print on them to advertise or simply decorate.

Remember to care for your awning by removing objects like branches from them, rinsing off all dirt on them that may cause degradation and keep them dry to prevent mould so that they can serve you for long.

As it's apparent, the benefits of awnings surpass providing shade only. so choose professional installers so that you can reap all the benefits and add character to your space.
