When it comes to the weather, we certainly like to mix things up in Australia – and nothing ever happens in half measures either, rain or shine! Our sun is among the strongest globally, and when it rains it throws it down by the shed-full! Even our winds can prove treacherous when they choose to.

Meet the perfect outdoor blind and awning fabric for Australia’s climate: Outlook Mesh.

Outlook Mesh is a high-quality, durable fabric popular in outdoor furnishing applications. It is designed to protect against Australia’s harmful UV rays, light wind, and rain without compromising the cool breezes and surrounding views. With treatments including UV stabilisation, fire retardancy*, Microban fabric protection, and a Greenguard Gold certification, this mesh has all the essential features to help benefit your customer’s experience.

Additionally, Outlook Mesh is manufactured using Dow Ecolibrium**, an advanced technology that uses bio-based plasticisers to reduce the negative environmental impact. This sustainable formulation of plasticisers is made from 98% renewable feedstock, phthalate-free, and plant-based in composition. For every 10 square metres of Outlook Mesh, one litre of petroleum is saved in manufacturing.

Put simply, Outlook Mesh is one of the cleanest mesh types on the Australian market. Choose this textile, and you can be sure of extending the hours that friends, family or work colleagues enjoy the outdoor space provided even as you minimise your carbon footprint.

Outlook Mesh: Treatments explained

UV stabilisation and fire retardancy are common yet critical treatments in textiles – especially those designed for the Australian market.

UV stabilisation allows the fabric to withstand the sun and its harmful rays, preventing exposure to UV radiation while helping prevent fast and unsightly fading. 

Fire retardancy requires a group of chemicals added to textiles during manufacturing to prevent or delay the spread of fire.

What is Microban?

Microban is a world-renowned treatment brand that prevents bacterial and fungal build-up. Outlook Mesh manufacturers partner with this brand and use this protection on all Outlook mesh products, ensuring a premium wear experience for all users.
