Sustainable | Awning Fabric Collection
The modern basics blue® fabric collection is as sophisticated as you are. Look forward to beautiful awning covers in modern design and with unique quality – for the best outdoor living in your precious personal space.
New and unique:
These awning fabrics are produced sustainably. Here, upcycling means approx. 60 % less energy consumption and approx. 45 % less CO2 emissions through PET recycling and approx. 90 % less water consumption thanks to spinneret dyeing. For us it means taking responsibility.
Long service life:
Weinor products are always made for long-term use. In this respect, our decision for first-class quality is also always a commitment to more sustainability – for our future.

Made with 85 % recycled PET – tried and tested, certified quality The modern basics blue® collection consists of a sun protection fabric certified according to the Global Recycled Standard (GRS) made with 85 % recycled PET – for a better environmental balance in terms of water, energy and CO2.
Positive sustainability balance
Further energy saving
Automated sun protection systems prevent the
overheating of living spaces and help reduce the
energy required for air conditioning.
Upcycling | The Fabric Creation Process.
PET bottles are collected
Upcycling – this means turning waste into something more valuable and durable. In our case, PET bottles are transferred to the recycling loop and compressed into compact plastic bales. This reduces the transport volume of the bottles considerably, saving on climate-damaging CO2.
The recycling plant sorts and cleans the raw material
The bottles are then removed in large bales and taken to the recycling plant. The sorting and thorough cleaning process takes place there.
Once the bottles are separated from each other and cleaned, the recyclable material is shredded into small plastic flakes.
Plastic is melted down and chips are produced
Small chips have to be produced first for further processing. For this, the material is melted down and pressed through an extruder – a kind of industrial spaghetti press. Using special blades these plastic strands are finally cut into small strands: the chips.
Spinneret dyeing ensures the deep embedding of the pigment
Dyeing using complex spinneret technology. The colourless chips are melted down again and mixed with pigment. Unlike conventional processes, where the surface of finished yarn or fabric is dyed, the result is a yarn with consistent colour throughout
Extruding the melt through nozzles produces continuous fibres
Now the coloured melt is pressed through spinnerets. These are perforated discs whose hole size determines the diameter of the yarn fibres.
Individual continuous filaments are produced, which are then joined together. The result: high-quality and elastic continuous filaments.
The multifilament yarn is made from several continuous filaments
The high-quality multifilament yarn is produced by combining many continuous fibres. The texturing gives it a structure similar to natural fibres.
The multifilament yarn is then wound onto bobbins. It can be composed of differently coloured fibres – for a beautiful melange effect.
The material is woven and given a finish
Now a high quality Tempotest® fabric is made out of the yarn at Parà. The Italian weaving mill is one of the most renowned producers of outdoor fabrics worldwide. The special Teflon™ finish ensures a long service life for the awning cloth and allows impurities to simply roll off.
The finished awning fabric is manufactured at the weinor sewing facilities
Individuality matters: all fabric awnings are made to measure in Germany for customers by weinor. Then each awning fabric from the modern basics blue® collection is tested by experts.
Once it has successfully passed the inspection, it receives the weinor fabric label.
