French company, Serge Ferrari, has announced that it has launched Soltis Proof W88, a waterproof material for awnings and canopies that also allows natural light to shine through. Developed as a sister product to Soltis Proof W96, Soltis Proof W88 offers a different aesthetic of a square-weave textured pattern compared with W96’s asymmetrical weave pattern.

Soltis Proof W88 also allows more natural light to pass through, up to 21 per cent, while still blocking heat, rain, and glare. Soltis Proof W88 is built with Serge Ferrari’s patented and exclusive Precontraint technology making it dimensionally stable and resistant to stretching over time, as well as better protected from UV degradation by way of a thicker, more consistent coating. The thinness, dimensional stability and tear strength of Soltis Proof W88 also makes it an excellent fabric to use in retractable systems, the company said in a media statement.

Sold through Serge Ferrari’s Florida warehouse, Soltis Proof W88 is available in 5 colours, is GreenGuard certified for indoor air quality and meets all fire retardancy requirements for public-space and hospitality use. As is the case with all Soltis Precontraint fabrics, Soltis Proof W88 may be used in both warp and weft directions for simpler fabrication and less waste. Soltis Proof W88 is available in 105.1 inches wide rolls, may be sewn or welded, and comes with a five-year warranty for performance.
