Dickson’s  Sunworker solar protection fabrics, which have been designed to help shield out the sun’s harmful rays, are finding a strong following from corporate and individual clients alike.

Issey Sun Shade Systems, who design, manufacture and install sun shade solutions, says that many clients are surprised at the visibility of the Sunworker fabric, especially with the darker colours.

Clients also appreciate the balance between solar protection and visibility. The Sunworker fabric suits both east and west facing applications where strong morning and afternoon sun can be tamed to minimise heat, glare and damaging UV rays entering the protected area.

The Sunworker’s features include a good rolling performance combined with strong dimensional stability and low stretch which makes it suitable for retractable shading systems; its light weight (350gsm) offers greater flexibility without affecting its resistance to difficult weather conditions and mechanical strain; and the satiny and smooth finish reduces dirt markings and facilitates cleaning.

The Sunworker fabrics offer high UV thermal and visual insulation both in summer and winter. Its level of efficiency can be measured using ‘the sun factor’; the lower the factor, the more optimal the comfort.

All of the Sunworker fabrics are fire retardant, and are available in a selected colour range in 3m widths, as well as 25 colours in 1.5m widths.
