All About Our “Architectural Cloth” at GOSS Outdoor
For our pergola and awning installations, we only work with a special group of materials to provide the ultimate support and quality for our shading systems, and we collaborate with different suppliers, one of them being SIOEN - an industry giant within fabric and textiles production services.
Traditionally, awnings and pergolas are made from materials which are not complex and thus creating a type of shading system which will be exposed to faster ‘wear and tear’. The modern technology of industrial cloth is brought to us by the technicians at SIOEN who use a mixture of PU-coated texture with either PES or PA fabric to create the roof section of our awnings and pergolas.
A ‘PU (Polyurethane) coated’ texture used to cover fabrics, to give them a water-resistant property which allows the fabric to be safely protected from harsh weather conditions such as rain, wind and even the harsh sunlight, which get efficiently blocked, bouncing off of the surface of the material.
PA, which is the abbreviated term of ‘Polyamide’, is made from nylon, known for its high resistance towards abrasion and tearing. In addition, it is elastic, does not crease, and can be easily dyed or modified.
Similarly, PES is also a texture which we use for our shading systems, and it is commonly created from petroleum by-products or even recycled plastic bottles, which creates a whole new purpose to dispose of excess plastic discarded - by creating a new purpose for the materials to exist in our back gardens, in the form of a pergola system.
This way, the turtles are happy and so are our customers.
