What is the difference between stitched and welded sun awnings?

Sun awnings: production technique

When you buy a new sun awning, your first intention is to create a shaded area in complete privacy. Among the specifications that you focus on there are: shape, model and customisation. Yet, there is another element that you ought to consider: not all manufacturing techniques are the same. 

However, you may not have the technical knowledge to choose the best solution. This is why we at Arquati want to explain the difference between stitched and welded shades and we want to decide with you the best option.

Stitched awnings: a good product with an expiry date

Stitched sunshades are certainly popular and they can provide good results. Unfortunately, though, these sunshades are subject to factors that over time can affect their performance. To avoid having to repair or replace them after a short time, you need to be sure of the excellent quality of the thread used in production 

Arquati uses Tenara® thread, which provides the top quality performance available on the market, with exceptional resistance and long life. 

If a poor quality thread is used, as the years and the seasons go by, its performance declines and you may find yourself having to consider a new purchase.

Over time, sun awnings are exposed to a variety of agents and weather conditions: rain, snow, heat, cold, but especially UV rays. If what you are looking for is a sun awning for your seaside home, you also need to take into account the corrosive action of salty air, which over time can cause tears and breakages.

Seams stitched with Tenara® thread by Arquati you will save you from experiencing this, and they guarantee the maximum duration of your awning over time.

Welded awnings: the End-to-End revolution

Welding offers a quality product and the perspective of a very long life. This innovative technique that not only ensures a great performance of the shades, but also makes them more attractive.

Arquati has introduced a performing welding technique for polyester and acrylic fabrics: the End-to-End welding. This modern manufacturing technique resolves some issues with the seams and offers an excellent quality product. The technique consists in setting the two fabrics end to end and joining them with an ultrasonic welded ribbon. By eliminating the overlapping, not only unsightly thickness typical of seams is avoided, but excellent results are also achieved in terms of quality:

  • resilience;
  • strength;
  • impermeability:
  • and traction power.

The added advantage is in preventing the fabric from fraying and the thread from breaking.

To ensure that your sun awning lasts over time, we recommend that you buy a product made with extreme care. When you decide to buy a new product, consult an expert.
