ABOUT WEATHERMAX COVER AND AWNING MATERIAL
WeatherMax cover and awning material offers the perfect balance of science, toughness and style. It is a lightweight, waterproof, breathable, non sagging and durable fabric, ideal for covers, awnings, UV strips, upholstery, cushions, umbrellas and sun shades. WeatherMax is available in two weights with various finishes and a wide range of colours to suit all applications.
BREATHABILITY The breathability of a fabric for certain applications is every bit as important as its ability to stop water getting in. In the UK marine environment especially, water ingress and condensation are a fact of life. The ability of the fabric to breathe is essential in reducing dampness, heat build up and condensation, which in turn reduces the chances of problems such as, mould, mildew and osmosis etc.
WATERPROOF HydroMax is a highly water repellent impregnated finish that helps give WeatherMax the ability to protect against heavy rain whilst keeping its breathability and dimensional stability. The finish is also highly resistant to dirt and staining and has an added anti-microbial component to help prevent potential mildew or mould growth on top of the fabric.
UV PROTECTION WeatherMax is made from the SaturaMax yarn, which is a high quality solid pigment solution dyed polymer yarn. As the colour is physically part of the polymer yarn itself, it offers superior colour consistency, light fastness and strength characteristics. The exceptional quality of this yarn ensures the fade resistance of the WeatherMax is equal to that of acrylic fabrics.
STRENGTH AND ABRASION WeatherMax is made with filament yarns which can be stretched but will recover to their original length completely, providing a very stable cover that will not shrink or grow. Acrylics, in comparison, are made from spun yarns that also stretch under load but do not recover completely, leading to unsightly sagging. WeatherMax also has twice the strength of acrylic and is six times more durable under abrasion and rubbing.
WEIGHT WeatherMax is available in two weights to suit all applications. The standard WeatherMax 80 has a weight of 271g per sq metre and the lightweight WeatherMax LT has a weight of 220g per sq metre.
WEAVE WeatherMax 80 is woven using an Ottoman weave, a combination of a plain and basket weave and which creates the best combination of strength, durability and stability. It gives WeatherMax its firm feel and subtle ribbed texture, refined to the eye and luxurious to the hand. WeatherMax LT is woven using a standard plain weave to help reduce weight and give the fabric a smoother and lighter feel.
