MayTex - Colours & Fabrics

Not only is the part of the parasol made of fabric the most important and most visible part of this type of sun shade, but also provides a large range of key functions:


Colour, light and shade – physical comfort, atmosphere and décor

The extensive range of high-quality classics and special models. The fabric keeps the sunlight out. It provides protection and shade, creates a colour scheme and structure, and adds a decorative element. The fabric provides ambience and has an influence on personal well-being by filtering the light and giving it a colour hue, thereby lending the space and the surroundings a very special atmosphere. The colour, pattern and translucence of the fabric all have a decisive influence on the effect created.


Each of our parasols gives you the choice of up to 70 different colours and fabrics. Each textile has its own unique properties and advantages.

Every fabric and every colour come with a different level of UV protection. For more information about this, please read the following article: Do parasols offer sufficient UV protection?


The parasol canopy is bordered by a high-quality awning edge trim made of polyacrylic. If no information is provided about the colour, then it harmonises with the fabric colour. Choosing contrasting colours for the canopy and the edge trim allows you to create a visual accent.

Product characteristics of parasol canopies and awning cloths

Parasol canopies are hardwearing products. However, there is a limit to the perfection that even today’s state-of-the-art products can achieve, which must, after all, satisfy environmental protection requirements. Despite sophisticated production and processing technology, the cloth may exhibit certain visual effects that occasionally result in complaints. These visual effects do not compromise the parasol’s value and suitability for use in any way. To avoid any sort of confusion, we would like to draw your attention to the following characteristics:

Crease marks

Crease marks form when the cloth that will provide shade is being cut to size and being folded. When viewed against the light, a dark line may be visible where the cloth was folded, particularly if the cloth has a light colour.

Chalk effect

Light chalk-like stripes may arise during the processing of materials. Although the greatest of care is taken, they cannot always be totally avoided.

Impermeability to water and rainfastness

Polyacrylic sun shade fabric is treated with a water-repellent finish and remains rainproof when cared for properly and when only exposed to brief rain showers. If the cloth becomes wet, it must be opened up again as soon as possible to allow it to dry.

Abrasion marks

Over time, some abrasion can occur, which will unfortunately weaken the material and impair the fabric quality. To counteract this, the fabric must be pulled out from between the spokes when the parasol is closed, and a yellow cord be used to stop the fabric from flattering.

Recommendation for cleaning

Any dirt or marks can be removed by cleaning using a soft brush and CleanoMay 13. After doing so, rinse well with water to ensure no residue remains on the fabric. A steam jet can also be used for cleaning a large surface (no hotter than 30 °C, max. 30 bar, at least 30 cm between nozzle and canopy, cleaning agent: CleanoMay 13, 1 litre of concentrate yields 26 litres of cleaning fluid)
