- The pergolas allow us to create a more sheltered space. Very used in bars and restaurants
Types of fabrics: Function and effectiveness in waterproof awnings
- PVC: Material most used for waterproofing. The inconvenience is that they subtract heat and have a lot of brightness, so it is not aesthetic. They are mainly used in industry.
- Acrylics: They do not absorb heat and are made of a material with a lot of brightness
- Ratinated Acrylic Canvases: New range of fabrics for all types of awnings. They maintain the characteristics of the previous ones, but they are covered with special resins with which maximum waterproofness is stitched.
