awningsAwnings are energy savers with 8-15 degrees cooling capability. They reduce solar heat gain up to 65% on south-facing windows and 77% on west-facing windows. Since awning fabric does not trap heat and moisture, an awning can reduce air conditioning costs by as much as 25%!

Patio covers and awnings made with Herculite's® Awning Fabrics provide extra outdoor living space, protect interior furnishings from fading and ultra violet damage. They reduce energy costs, and offer superior sun protection. Vinyl awning fabrics are water proof and the fabric stays tight on the frame. All our brands employ unique film formulations, adhesive systems and our Core Stabilized Process to insure maximum performance.
