Fabric choices:  

  • Poly canvas has long been the most popular fabric choice due its low price point. Our 600 gram/600 denier poly canvas materials are 2x the thickness of most competitors. Poly canvas fabric choices do not include a fade warranty. Fading of poly canvas fabrics will vary according to color, your locale and whether the umbrella is left out and open on a full-time basis.

  • Protextureis a poly material with a fade-resistant treatment that locks in pigment for at least 4 years. Protexture is a great choice for customers in the market for a darker color and/or those who do not want to pay Sunbrella’s premium price. In general, Protexture gets 80% of Sunbrella’s fade resistant benefit at 1/3 the cost.

  • Sunbrella has long been the industry’s leading material for outdoor. Sunbrella fabrics are available in nearly all conceivable colors and grades. Our online prices for Sunbrella replacement canopies cover the Sunbrella furniture grade 5400 series. We are a Sunbrella dealer.
