Orchestra - The benchmark in acrylic awning fabric
A next-generation fabric
DICKSON® offers a fabric that is the product of the latest technological innovations in the technical textiles sector, with properties and a performance that are unrivalled on the outdoor market. Its characteristics have been improved in order to adapt to developments in the market and consumers’ changing expectations in terms of strength and solar protection.
Thanks to its denser weave, ORCHESTRA offers more effective protection from the sun, reducing glare and blocking up to 100% of UV rays, while providing better resistance to bad weather.
The search for new materials and sophisticated technical performances characterise Dickson® fabrics, the composition of which is key.
Dickson® fabrics are woven exclusively from Sunacryl solution-dyed acrylic fibres.
Designed by the Dickson® R&D department, this premium acrylic fibre is solution-dyed: the colour pigments are incorporated at the time of manufacture, and not afterwards.
This means that the colours are resistant to sunlight, moonlight and bad weather.
If you're looking to re-upholster your blinds, discover our full range of awning fabrics and find the model that's right for you.
