Best awning materials

3 mins read

Awnings are a fantastic investment opportunity. They help add value to your home or business. More importantly, they allow you to use more of the outdoor space and even advertise effectively.

But what is the best material for an awning? In this blog, we will discuss the various options and their benefits.

Outdoor retractable awnings

An outdoor awning needs to be robust to withstand the harsh Australian elements, especially if it is motorised.

Here at Eureka Awnings, we offer only the best awnings for sale. Our outdoor systems are the top-of-the-line Suntech designs and come in a variety of styles. With sturdy aluminium supports and reinforced guttering systems, you are guaranteed quality when you choose our products.

Retractable awnings

Also, having the most up-to-date technology in your retractable awning is essential as it needs to be weather-proof and reliable at just the touch of a button.

Canvas material

For external awnings in Sydney, it is common to have a canvas type of material. They are lightweight and are flexible enough to move and fold if they need to be retracted.

The canvas, however, should be strong and have resistance to UV light, extreme hot and cold weather, as well as be waterproof. This will be the difference between an awning that lasts a lifetime vs one that has to be replaced every year.

Also, you don’t want there to be any leaks or damage on your structure, so a tightly woven awning is needed. It protects from water while still being breathable and flexible.

Canvas awnings

Often, an awning is one of the first things anyone will see before entering your business or home. Ensuring that it is high-quality is not just a safety requirement but is also a reputation enhancer.

Straight drop & folding arm

This awning style creates a great barrier between your home and the sun. It is also perfect for advertising your business.

Folding arms are another ideal awning type, but again, require reliable parts and materials in order to guarantee they function correctly and consistently.

Regardless of what material they are made of, it is vital they are cleaned well and never folded away wet or with debris. This will help prolong their lifespan and ensure they are usable for years to come.

If your awning is custom designed to have your logo or some advertising printed on it, then you definitely want to make it last as long as possible.

It would be a shame if all that effort and customisation were ruined because of inferior quality materials.
