Steel: Apollo Sunguard uses structural steel and Allied Steel made from cold-rolled, galvanized tubular steel with a triple layer of protection. Allied Steel products outperform most steels in tensile strength and long-term corrosion resistance, as well as saltwater spray and other weathering tests.
Fabric: Sunguard Shade Cloth® is known for its strength, vibrant color and durability. The high-density polyethylene fabric with ultraviolet additives is Rachel knitted so material will not unravel when cut, ensuring stability and a consistent shade pattern. All of our fabric passes the ASTM E-84 fire rating test as well as the NFPA 255 and NFPA-701, and is rated a Class 1 Material.
Thread: Tenera thread used for stitching is guaranteed not to rot due to UV exposure or other environmental causes.
Corners: Fabric connection points are triple reinforced. Each connecting point has vinyl sewn between layers for reinforcement.
