Sustainability at the forefront of your time outside with Dickson

While some people have already put away their garden furniture, others are already thinking about their upcoming time on the terrace. That's good news, because at Dickson, the end of the year is traditionally the best time to plan outdoor furnishings. All in comfort, in a designer fashion and in a sustainable way.

Beautiful and sustainable solar protection

To enjoy a peaceful, romantic lunch or a family barbecue under your solar fabric, you want to choose sustainable materials. By choosing Dickson awning fabric, you are guaranteed to benefit from protection that has a reduced impact on the environment. Our awning fabrics are certified to Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Class II: an approval that certifies that the fabric is not harmful to the environment or humans. Moreover, Dickson fabrics are made in France and benefit from a high-performance weaving process. You are therefore sure to invest in a sustainable fabric with a 10-year guarantee.

Finally, if by chance you want to change the fabric, without changing the mechanism, choose a straightforward re-interfacing. This technique allows you to keep the mechanism and the structure, and only replace the fabric. A responsible and above all economical solution !

Choose a fabric that meets your energy and design needs

Dickson fabrics block up to 95% of glare and heat by reducing the greenhouse effect. They keep your interior cool and, depending on the colour, block 90-100% of UV rays. When used outdoors, a dark awning fabric will therefore provide better protection from heat, light and UV rays. A lighter colour will have less impact on thermal control and provide less UV protection. However, it will create a brighter environment. Are you interested?
