Thread Selection: Only as Strong as the Weakest Link
Thread is the most important aspect of any marine, awning, drop screen or shade sail project as it has to endure the harsh Florida sun day in and day out for many, many years. Too many times, canvas shops opt to cut costs by utilizing a sub-par thread only to have the project needing to be re-stitched after only a few years. With today’s fabrics engineered to last up to 10 years, the choice is clear: Use a thread that is guaranteed to last in writing. SolarFix® PTFE thread will not lose any significant strength due to UV or chemical exposure, unlike conventional polyester, nylon and cotton products. See below for a 5-year comparison chart. SolarFix® is the thread of choice for all of our canvas covers, biminis, dodgers, roll-up curtains, shade sails and awnings.
