Care and Cleaning

Natura® 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. Natura® 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 Natura 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

Herculite Natura® Awning Fabrics are guaranteed for a period of eight (8) 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 eight (8) year period from date of original installation, Herculite Products Inc. will guarantee 100% replacement of the fabric to the original owner of the awning for the first five (5) years. Coverage is prorated for the three (3) year remainder of the warranty with a credit of 1/96th being applied toward the purchase of replacement material for each month remaining on the warranty. Herculite’s liability will be limited to the replacement of the fabric only and does not cover labor, installation or decorations.

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. This warranty requires that the user implement proper care and maintenance as defined within Natura, Handling and Maintenance Instructions.

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.
