Awning Fabrics

Architectural awnings designed with Herculite's® Awning Fabrics provide extra outdoor living and extended seasonal space, protect interior furnishings from fading and ultra violet damage. The PVC composite textile awning material reduces energy costs, and offers superior sun protection. Vinyl awning fabrics are waterproof, easy to maintain and the fabric stays tight on the frame. All our brands employ superior unique film formulations, adhesive systems and our Core Stabilized Process to insure maximum extended life performance.

Awnings 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%!

Care and Cleaning

Coastline Plus® Awning Fabric is a polyester reinforced PVC fabric that will provide many years of satisfactory service. It is waterproof, flame, mildew, stain and dirt resistant. Herculite’s Rain Kleen® surface treatments further enhance longevity and ease of maintenance. Coastline Plus® is dimensionally stable. Properly fastened to the frame, it will retain its trim fit as well as its protective function and aesthetic value. Since no material is impervious to all hazards, proper maintenance is important if maximum life of the product is to be realized.

The following maintenance suggestions are offered:

  1. Keep clean. Occasional hosing with clear water will prevent dirt accumulation. Most dirt accumulation
    can be removed by mild soap, water and a soft scrub brush. Rinse thoroughly. In
    extreme cases, most dirt can be removed by applying half strength bleach and brushing softly
    to cover thoroughly the necessary area. Allow solution to remain for two or three minutes, then
    thoroughly rinse with clear water, protecting surrounding materials or plant growth that might
    be damaged by the bleach. Do not use solvent based cleaners.
  2. In areas particularly conductive to mildew, brush away any visible accumulation of dirt on
    underside. Mildew can grow on dirt, but does not grow on or attack the Coastline Plus™ vinyl.
  3. Use care during installation, take down and transporting. Frictional heat, particularly at the
    folds, can damage the surface. Sufficient frictional heat can create holes.
  4. Avoid excessive wind whip or flapping. Normally fastened sections or panels should be rolled
    or restrained when not in use.

Limited Warranty

Coastline Plus® Awning Fabrics are guaranteed for a period of five (5) years from date of original installation against rot or excessive deterioration, mildew stains,excessive loss of strength or color change if they occur in normal use and exposure, including sunlight and normal atmospheric chemicals. (Some color change is unavoidable due to ultraviolet rays and chemicals in the atmosphere.)

In the unlikely event of failure of fabric during the five (5) year period from date of original installation, we will supply you, the original owner or the provider of your protective fabric accessories with replacement fabric at no charge. This warranty protects you against damage to the fabric accessories used under
normal conditions. It does not cover damage to the fabric from acts of God, vandalism, neglect or improper use including the misuse of solvent based cleaners that can damage the top coat.

This warranty is in lieu of all warranties expressed or implied, and, Herculite Products Inc. will not be liable for any consequential or incidental damage. Any implied warranties imposed by law are limited in time to the duration of the expressed warranty.

Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damage, so, the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state.
