Properties of Soltis fabrics
Soltis® is a high-tech textile developed by Ferrari® that stands out due to its many micropores. These make it especially air-permeable. On top of this, Soltis® fabrics can block out between 86 and 97 per cent of the sun's rays depending on the type of Soltis®. When used on vertical awnings, they therefore provide for a healthy climate. Their exceptional thermal efficiency helps Soltis® fabrics reduce energy costs significantly. With a maximum thickness of 0.45 mm, no awning housing is too small.
Sun protection with micro-ventilation
Thanks to its micro-ventilation (numerous micropores), Soltis® controls the warming effect of the sun's rays. The pores make it especially air-permeable. Depending on the colour and type of Soltis®, Soltis® fabrics can block out between 86 and 97 per cent of the sun's rays. The so-called greenhouse effect is thus significantly reduced.
Protection from the sun but still a clear view
On window awnings, above all, Soltis® is sometimes the better alternative. Especially when the sun screen needs to be light-transmissive and an almost unhindered view of the outside world is required. The degree of light transmission depends on the colour of the Soltis fabric. A wide range of NCS colours are available.
The high-quality polymers used in making Soltis® fabrics provide a high degree of colour fastness. Dirt simply can't stick to the smooth surface and can be washed off.
As they are pre-treated both warpwise and weftwise to prevent them from pulling out of shape, Soltis fabrics will never deform. According to the manufacturer, they also maintain their surface stability when exposed to temperatures ranging from -30°C to +80°C.
Soltis® 92 is a textile that acts as a thermal shield, keeping heat out but providing a view of the outside world (width: 170 cm).
Soltis® 93 has the same properties and, being 270 cm in width, is especially suited to wide awning systems.
Soltis® 86 is the ideal fabric for those looking for a compromise between effective sun protection and a light-permeable textile structure which allows sufficient natural light through. It is therefore ideal for north-facing windows, which need to allow more light in. Soltis® 86 is available in 170 cm widths. Please note that cross-seams are frequently unavoidable on 170 cm widths. However, this does not constitute inferior quality or a defect.
