Pivot Arm Awnings

Q. How do I look after and keep my Pivot Arm awnings clean?

A. For long life of your new fabric awnings, it is very important to keep to these recommendations:

  • Your awnings should be positioned in such a way that there is perfect tension of the fabric with no rubbing. This tension will avoid the forming of pockets of water in the event of rain.
  • In the event of high winds, retract the awnings.
  • In the rain, the awnings can be left out, but avoid retracting it damp and leaving it for a long period of time. If you must retract it when damp, let it out as soon as you can to allow it to dry.
  • Regularly remove all surface particles by vacuuming, air blasting, beating or brushing with a soft broom.
  • For fingerprints or grease stains, use soapy water.
  • For watermarks, sponge out as much as you can and rub gently with a moist cloth.
  • Never use detergents or other chemical products.
  • Keep petrol, oil, solvents, kerosene and other similar fluids away from any PVC Coated Screen fabrics.

Q. What sort of warranty can I expect?

A. The majority of the fabrics we use for our awnings have all the necessary characteristics for use outside and you should not encounter any specific problems. Most suppliers give us a Warranty between 5 – 10 years on the life of their fabrics.

Our advice above, is given to you even though the canvas is rot proof from nature, however dirt deposits or atmospheric pollution can damage your awnings and may void any warranty if deemed having been neglected. Synthetic PVC coated fabrics are designed to let light in yet keep the sun out. Thanks to their high tensile polyester inner core and their specially woven construction Screen fabrics will keep their long lasting good looks for many years. Requiring little maintenance, it will not rot and resists mildew, plus it is UV resistant to withstand the harshest weather conditions. We strongly recommend you select your fabric from the following brands for peace of mind.
