Glen Raven Custom Fabrics will debut the industry’s first awning and shade fabrics to feature recycled fibre during the Super Expo 2013, to be held on Queensland’s Gold Coast from 5 to 7 June 2013. The Super Expo is Australia’s largest trade exhibition for the window furnishings and specialized textiles industry.
Sunbrella Renaissance Unity fabrics contain 50% post-industrial recycled Sunbrella fibre, resulting in a vintage canvas look, while retaining all of Sunbrella’s legendary fade-resistance and sun-protection qualities.
“The exciting thing about the new Unity awning and shade fabrics is that they not only have a wonderful environmental story, but they also bring a new look and feel to Sunbrella awning fabrics,” said Vince Hankins, industrial business manager for Glen Raven Custom Fabrics.
The initial launch of Unity fabrics includes five solid colours that are designed to be coordinated with a variety of exterior building trim and fascia materials.
