By regulating heat and offering passive protection, Dickson® fabrics allow you to enjoy the sun’s heat in winter and offer you the coolness you need in summer.
They provide effective protection from UV rays thanks to their solution-dyed acrylic weave and also regulate the lighting of the areas they protect. So linger a little longer with your friends and family.
The Solar Fabrics collection, with its surprising styles, textures and woven effects, is here to disrupt popular notions of awning fabrics.
Get inspired by these bold and muted stripes in trendy soft and pastel colours. Also consider the bright reds, sunny yellows and natural greens. And don’t forget the neutral stripes with mixes of shades highlighted by white, which offer these fabrics a new field of expression.
To protect effectively, the awning must be larger than the area to be protected. The size of the shade created by the awning varies depending on orientation, sunshine strength and awning size. It is thus essential to clearly identify the area to be shaded before you make your choice. To estimate the shade that will be created, add about 1.50 m to the desired area of shade. As for width, we recommend that you add 1 m to each side of your windows or doors to ensure that your home's interior is protected.
Colours influence our well-being and help create a cool, moderate or warm ambiance. An awning fabric can add colour to the sun’s rays as they filter through the dyed fibres, thus modifying the perception of the space under the awning and either “cooling” or “warming” the light’s natural colour.
Blue, for example, will cool down the colour of the light, creating a soothing, refreshing feeling. Yellow will warm the light to create a joyful, stimulating mood. White or grey will have very little effect on the light, guaranteeing a calm, neutral ambiance.
