How do you weld Coastline Plus?
Some of the most common methods used for seaming Coastline Plus Architectural Awning Fabric:
Hot Air Welding
This process of vinyl welding involves the use of hot air—varying from 200 to 600 degrees C or more—to weld two layers of fabric. A nozzle is inserted into the space between the two layers and the hot air is blown inside. Once the surfaces are hot enough, the layers are pressed together using pinch rollers. The weld is created once the rollers are finished pinching the fabrics together.
Radio Frequency Welding
Also known as high frequency or dielectric welding; uses radio waves to create heat.
In this process, chemical solvents are used to create a seam. The solvent is placed along the surface of the fabrics and allowed to rest for a short period of time. The solvent’s chemicals break down or soften the fabrics. Once the fabrics are soft enough, pressure is applied to create the seam.
Two pieces of fabric are passed through a wedge. The wedge is heated and as the fabrics move along, a roller is used to press them together; a seam is created.
Sewing Using Polyester or Teflon Thread
The seam is created using a sewing machine. Proper thread selection is critical especially when outdoor applications are subject to harsh weather elements. Polyester and Teflon threads offer strength and durability.

How do I maintain my Coastline Plus awning?

The Rain Kleen® surface treatments further enhance longevity and ease of maintenance. Properly fastened to the frame, it will retain its trim fit as well as its protective function and aesthetic value.
