What are the benefits of Sunbrella fabrics?

So, you’ve heard the buzz about Sunbrella fabric. This fabric has been used for over 50 years, and the popularity has grown even more since its inception. But is it worth the hype? Let’s break down the importance of protecting your outdoor patio furniture with Sunbrella fabric and let you decide for yourself.

  • Protects your fabrics from harmful UV rays. Sunbrella material can withstand up to 98% of the sun’s harmful UV rays. In the past, Sunbrella fabrics have been recommended to protect against UV rays. This makes the fabrics an excellent choice if you are looking to relax and not worry about the sun’s harmful UV rays ruining your outdoor furniture. If you want to get more UV protection benefits from Sunbrella fabrics, consider getting darker fabrics for your outdoor patio furniture, as opposed to lighter ones.

  • Fade resistance. With Sunbrella fabrics, fade becomes the least of your worries. Even when placed directly under the sun, Sunbrella fabric can withstand fade. This is because the dye used on the fabric is a UV-stable pigment. As such, irrespective of the bright and warm climatic conditions, the colour will remain as good as when the fabric was new! And, you won’t have to worry about the cost of getting new material any time soon.

  • Mold, chloride, mildew and water resistance. Sunbrella is an all-weather fabric! This means that you can leave your patio furniture and awnings outside and they will remain in great shape for years to come.

  • Ease of cleaning. Imagine taking a whole day or week of labour to clean your fabric. This is a non-occurrence when you use Sunbrella fabric to protect your outdoor furniture, as it is easy to maintain and clean.

    To clean Sunbrella fabric, all you need is mild soap and water. Also, based on your cleaning preference, you can use bleach. Use a brush with soft bristles to apply the solution to the stains. Allow to sit for approximately 15 minutes and scrub afterwards. Once the stains are removed, rinse thoroughly with clean plain water.
  • Easy customization. If you do not want to get stuck with the same designs all year long, you can customize your Sunbrella fabrics to suit your needs and preferences.

  • You get to use eco-friendly fabrics. What is the point of having a beautiful fabric that is not eco-friendly? The manufacturing process of Sunbrella fabrics aims to minimize environmental pollution and degradation through the reduction of energy and water consumption. The Sunbrella fabric colour saturation process does not waste any water. Sunbrella fabrics are also manufactured with pre-and post-consumer waste, hence promoting recycling.

  • Long lifespan. Sunbrella fabrics are truly a worthwhile purchase. This is because the fabrics are manufactured with the highest-grade materials, ensuring longevity.
