If you have a foot in the yachting or at least the marine industry, you probably know all about Sunbrella. If you’re new to the nautical world, you might be asking ”What is the Sunbrella buzz all about?”
From 1961 till today, Sunbrella fabrics in fact continue to rise to the occasion, and let’s say, challenge, and they are continuously finding new ways to provide you with the Sunbrella opportuntity. Initially debuted as an alternative to the cotton used for awnings, it now provides quality fabrics for every corner of life.
In laymen’s terms, Sunbrella is a fabric made out of acrylic fibres with the pigmentation added prior to the extrusion. Back then it was something brand new, and with years of carefree service and warranty, it is no wonder it revolutionised the awning market.
Over the years it has expanded into the smooth sailing industry, fabric furniture along with creating fabric which is gorgeous enough to transform your indoor fabrics.
50 years on and Sunbrella is in fact the number 1 trusted name for marine fabrics. Your yacht is in reality your home away from home and you would want to make it your own and create your comfort zones there as well.
No matter what your style is, there is the perfect Sunbrella fabric out there for you. For marine fabrics, there’s the heavy-duty Sunbrella selection or the decorative textured fabrics for the more leisure boats. As for the finishing touch, add an element of Sunbrella pillows and throws to your yacht.
The Sunbrella’s rich colours is a fundamental part of the fibre and it won’t be washed away or bleached away by the sun or chlorine. It doesn’t trap heat nor moisture which thus eliminates mildew…meaning your Sunbrella will stay fresh and beautiful season after season.
Sunbrella wouldn’t be what it is if it didn’t provide the perfect fabric for outdoor and indoor fabrics. Extend your outdoor space with a Sunbrella cover to provide a completed shaded area for you to enjoy.
As for the indoors, Sunbrella will in fact endure any kids’ stains or your dog’s messy paws. With so many options for finishing touches and fabrics, such as throw overs and drapery, the possibilities are endless.
So with a UV-resistant, optimal durability and the perfect choice for boat furnishings and covers, Sunbrella can also be treated with a Cleangard® treatment to bear exposure to salt water whilst also enriches the fabric’s water-resistance properties.
So that’s what the Sunbrella buzz is all about..you can’t blame us for creating such a hype either, can you?
