Vanguard® Awning Fabrics
Vanguard is a high performance composite textile that incorporates specially engineered flexible polymer technology with a high performance polyester substrate. Made in America for over 20 years, Herculite’s Vanguard® has been the choice for the most demanding large architectural awning projects. Offering outstanding performance, value and durability as well as a broad palette of dramatic color choices, Vanguard awning fabric provides the look and dimensional stability needed to create architectural canopies that make bold statements about the facilities where they are used.
Trusted to retain their pliability and color intensity, Vanguard fabrics are manufactured to deliver extreme strength and long-lasting dimensional stability. Vanguard vinyl and polyester composite fabrics contain superior outdoor pigments to ensure prolonged color retention and ultraviolet protection. Waterproof as well as mildew, dirt and stain resistant, the Vanguard formulation contains mildew inhibitors that will not support mildew growth. The fabric accepts most forms of applied, pressure sensitive graphics for decoration of the finished awning. Other decoration methods include solvent based digital printing, heat transfer films, heat sealed and inset vinyls, appliqué, screen printing and hand painting.
