Rainier uses Sunbrella fabric in our awnings – the best and longest lasting awning fabric available. Sunbrella is a 100% solution dyed acrylic fabric. Sunbrella awnings are guaranteed not to fade for 10 years!
There are over 200 colors and patterns to choose from, so you’re sure to find the perfect fabric to complement your home’s color palette.
What Makes Sunbrella Fabric So Special?
Sunbrella’s superior color pigments are added during the production of fade-resistant fibers. The final result is Sunbrella yarn and fabric with color throughout that won’t fade or wash away – even with extreme exposure to the sun or cleaning with bleach!
In ordinary fabrics, dyes are added to the surface of the yarn or fabric. The color only penetrates the outer layer and washes out or fades away over time.
It’s like comparing apples and carrots. Other fabrics are like an apple, which has a brightly colored peel, but no pigment in the core.
The color in Sunbrella fabrics penetrates all the way to the core (like a carrot!) ensuring years of vibrant color and performance.
Care and Cleaning
Sunbrella pigments are stable enough to be cleaned with bleach, but most stains can be removed with mild soap and water and a soft bristled brush. Click here to download a PDF of the complete cleaning instructions.
