These Great Fabrics Can Help Reduce Your Risk In Getting Skin Cancer.

These Great Fabrics Can Help Reduce Your Risk In Getting Skin Cancer.

According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, just because it feels cool outside, that doesn’t mean UV rays aren’t reaching the ground and more importantly your skin. In fact, even on cloudy days, UV rays are still coming though. So if you’re outside at an event or party, remember to try to keep yourself well shaded! Sunbrella performance fabrics have been awarded the Seal of Recommendation by the Skin Cancer Foundation, an international organization committed to the education and prevention of skin cancer, the world’s most common cancer. Understanding the SPF or sun protection factor of your shade canopy fabrics will aid you in making informed decisions for your shaded outdoor living area and the overall protection of your skin. Sunbrella is not the only fabric with a high UV rating. New Haven Awning is also proud to carry Tempotest, Weblon Coastline and Firesist. Sunbrella high-performance fabrics have the look and feel of cotton. They’re quick-drying, very easy to clean, and hold their brilliant colors for many years to come. Tempotest awning fabrics are treated with Teflon® Extreme, which provides stain resistance, easy cleanability, and minimal maintenance. Weblon Coastline Plus fabric is flame retardant in addition to UV, water, and mildew resistant. It is also heat-sealable for a strong waterproof and airtight seal, and it accepts a variety of graphics offered by NH Awning. Firesist fabric is a state-of-the-art flame retardant performance and UV resistance fabric made for the commercial awning, canopy and shade markets. They also offer recycling of old fabric and fabric manufacturing waste. New Haven Awning is proud to work with these Fabric manufacturers to provide our customers with awning fabrics that are rated 50+ in UV protection as well as many other amazing benefits.

Darbar India Gets Their Awnings Recovered.

Darbar India Gets Their Awnings Recovered.

The NH Awning crew was at The Darbar India Restaurant in Branford, CT last week to do another great awning recover. I really like the way the gold painted graphics pop off that Sunbrella fabric. Not only does this awning look great but it also helps potential customers find this great restaurant as they are walking down the street. New Haven awning design and fabricates all of our awnings in house so there is no need to special order a frame just because it requires some custom fabrication. For instance this awning frame is a combination of the half barrel style for the entrance combined with a quarter barrel frame for the windows. Do you have an awning that needs a touch up?

Beacon Falls Senior Center Gets New Front and Rear Entrance Awnings!

The NH Awning Crew was at it again, but this time we visited Beacon Falls Senior Center to install some front and rear entrance awnings. We used Sunbrella fabric number 4663 to match the existing window shutters along with 1″x1″ stainless steel poles for the front supports.     After taking a look at the above before and after photo we’re sure that you can see how upgrading your existing awning can create instant curb appeal. Not to mention that this senior center chose to extend the length of the front structure to include covering the stairs. This simple add on will drastically cut down on snow and ice buildup in the winter as well as keep the entrance cooler during the summer months.   Is it time to upgrade your existing awning?

The Sunbrella Fabric Durability Challenge

The Sunbrella Fabric Durability Challenge

For a while now we’ve been talking about how durable Sunbrella Fabric really is. Sometimes you just have to see it to believe it. Below is a video of multiple people attempting to stain this incredible fabric. They try everything from red wine to chocolate sauce and in the end using just some tap water the fabric remains clean and stainless. To top it off they even go as far as to show that any color awning fabric made by Sunbrella can be cleaned with a simple bleach and water mixture without any loss of color. Is it time to recover you old or faded awning? Contact New Haven Awning now to keep that canopy shining for years to come. Check out more videos on our YouTube...

Gateway Apartments Get A Great Entrance Awning

Gateway Apartments Get A Great Entrance Awning

The mini neighborhood that’s dubbed “Downtown West” by The Bridgeport Neighborhood Trust now has a great new entrance awning with custom graphics. To keep the black fabric popping we used Sunbrella fabric. This remarkable material resists fading and regardless of the color can even be cleaned with bleach with the loss of color. Unlike others Sunbrella fabrics are saturated to the core with highly UV-stable pigments making it extremely resistant to fading and because the fabric is 100% acrylic it also resists tears and frays. Stay tuned for more on this magnificent fabric. Next week we will have a video of this material truly being put to the test.   Breaking ground on a new project?
