Choosing A Parasol Cover Material or a Canopy, Shade Specialists offer parasol covers in three types of high quality and durable materials, Spuncrylic®, Polyester and Recasens.These three fabrics for canopy covers have been chosen by us because they are extremely robust and resilient to the many changing weather conditions found here in the UK.

Spuncrylic® Parasol Cover Material

  • Spuncrylic® is a polyester which has been through a process called solution dying.
  • Solution dying is a technique used to add colour to a synthetic fibre.
  • Solution dying ensures colour is all through each thread before its woven, guaranteeing a higher quality and more vibrant colour.
  • Solution dying gives polyester a high-level resistance to fading from direct sunlight.
  • Spuncrylic® possesses excellent stain resistance and is water repellent.
  • Spuncrylic® offers an affordable canopy option which provides resistance to all weather conditions.
  • Spuncrylic® delivers a *UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) of at least 50.

*UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor), Indicates the fraction of the sun’s ultraviolet rays that penetrate fabric. Example, Material with a UPF of 50, allows just 1/50th of the sun’s UV radiation to reach your skin. The higher the UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor), the greater the protection offered.

Polyester Canopy Cover Material

  • Polyester strong fibre, highly resistant to creasing and keeps its shape perfectly.
  • Solution dying gives polyester a high-level resistance to fading from direct sunlight.
  • Unlike Spuncrylic, Polyester is piece dyed, piece dyed means the thread is only coloured on the outside of the canopy, like a radish!
  • Spuncrylic® possesses good stain resistance and is water repellent.
  • Spuncrylic® provides a *UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) of at least 50.
  • Offers an affordable alternative to Spuncrylic due to the colour fastness of darker materials
  • Shade Specialists only offer polyester covers in two natural colours. Beige and Natural.
