Our canopies are constructed of an Ecru color “Tempest” acrylic marine fabric, the European equivalent to Sunbrella. Colored fabrics in the “Tempotest” line are available as well as “Sunbrella” fabrics. Vents in the canopy allow for air passage and allow for more stability in heavier winds. All of these fabrics are fade resistant, water, oil, and dirt repellent. Tempost Novosol fabric is 100% solution dyed acrylic fibre, breathable, extremely resistant, and suitable for awnings of large dimensions as well as for sails structures, marine applications and for large garden sunshades and are available in more than 200 colours. Our structures are available in steel (black or white) or wood and our canopies and ribs are in aluminum and painted in anthracite grey or white.  *they are also available in wood and in other optional colors.

sunbrella logoBy “special order” , our canopies can be tailored out of Sunbrella or Soltis®86 and Soltis®92 fabrics. French producer Ferrari has launched a new range of Soltis® technical textiles for solar protection, for use outdoors and for roofing. Soltis Air fabrics stop up to 95% of solar radiations but also allow total visibility through the canopy. Manufactured using the exclusive Ferrari Précontraint® technology, Soltis textiles are held in tension throughout the production cycle. This ensures exceptional dimensional stability. The textiles do not warp, neither when installed nor when used.

*Please Note !! Because we manufacture in Italy our Sunbrella line of colors that are available is very limited but we can always find a match by using Tempotest Fabrics which has all the same characteristics of Sunbrella.

RIB COLORS – Our Patio Umbrella Ribs are available in two Standard Colors “White” and “Anthracite” (Grey/Black). Almost all other RAL colors can be special ordered as well as wood simulated aluminum.

STRUCTURE COLORS – Our Patio Umbrellas are available in two Standard Colors “White” and “Anthracite” (Grey/Black). Powder coats are available in hundreds (if not thousands) of colors, gloss levels, and textures.  High gloss, semi-gloss, flat, and matte finishes are available in most any color.  Clear, metallic, hammertone, wrinkle, transparent, fluorescent, glow-in-the-dark, glimmer, vein/antique, and even holographic finishes are also available.  Powders are available to match the RAL color standard, and when all else fails custom powders can be ordered to match any sample you have.

Powder coating is a method of applying a protective finish to a variety of materials and products. Powder coating is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. The coating is typically applied electrostatically and is then cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a “skin”. It is usually used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint. Powder coatings are stronger and more resistant to wear and tear. When powder coated, the color and finish will last much longer in UV rays, rain, snow and other elements that could damage your product. Powders also come in a wide variety of colors and textures. The most commonly powder coated items are metals. Mild steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass, etc. but others like wood and fiberglass can also be done. The practice of powder coating non metallic items is still new and therefore not reliable.
