Sunproof Cartenza - Fabric Care



Sunproof®, the trademark established as the premium quality fabric specially designed and weaved to perfectly dress your outdoor furniture with 3 years warranty from Colour fading.   Sunproof is not only a description for our high-quality cushions and slings.  It is a brand, a high performing fabric for outdoors.  Its name is a perfect description for what it represents.    Like all Fabrics, regular maintenance is strongly recommended.   Avoid prolonged exposure to any colour stripping chemicals, including but not limited to: bleach, chlorine, etc.

General Cleaning Information: Sunproof® recommend leaving cushion covers on the cushions for cleaning, rather than removing them and putting them in the washing machine.   Wash using natural soap (not detergent) and rinse in cold water.   Air dry only, never apply heat to the fabric or put Sunproof® into a tumble dryer.   Dry cleaning is not recommended.   



Sunproof Textilene Slings should be washed down regularly with warm fresh or soapy water.  A soft bristle brush can be used for stubborn stains. To further avoid stains, remove spills promptly.  Rinse thoroughly with fresh water after cleaning. Do not use solvent type cleaners.  Slings are quick drying and therefore hosing them down regularly is an effective way to keep them maintained.


Despite the wonderful outdoor qualities of Sunproof fabric please follow these instructions.  Never store cushions while wet. We recommend that all cushioned chairs are covered with a furniture cover or stored inside to extend their life.  For cushions with removable covers the best results will be obtained by removing the covers to wash them by hand or machine wash them on a delicate/gentle cycle and line dry in the shade before refitting.

Sunproof fabric is carefully processed and has gone through a special treatment to reduce the fabric absorption of soil and stains. It keeps the fabric looking clean, fresh and new.

To further aid in avoiding stains, remove spills promptly.  Stubborn stains can be removed using a mix of 50ml bleach and 15ml mild detergent mixed with 1L of warm water.  Rinse thoroughly with fresh water after cleaning.  DO NOT use solvent based cleaners, machine wash, dry clean or tumble dry.

Woven from 100% solution dyed olefin yarn.  Sunproof has chosen to use the premium quality of solution Dyed Olefin.  Solution dyeing is a clean manufacturing process as the colour is added before the yarn is extruded. It is friendly to the environment and 100% recyclable.

Resistant to UV damage and fading.  Sunproof applies excellent ultraviolet blocking agents which protect the polymer backbone of the fabric from the effect of UV radiation.

Sunproof fabric is also specially treated with a sanitized product for hygiene protection.  This product inhibits microbial developments and mould stains.


When left unmaintained and in an environment favourable to mould/mildew (hot, humid and dusty) spores can mark this and any other fabric.  The following treatment may assist in the removal of stubborn stains like mould/mildew once the mould/mildew has been washed off.

  1.  Apply PREEN VANISH (Oxi Action) as per instructions, which is spray on stain and leave for 5 minutes.
  2.  Soak in a solution of  Vanish NapiSan for 1 hour.
  3.  Rinse and air dry

If the mark(s) have not washed away, it may then be necessary to soak overnight followed by a thorough rinse and air drying.



The warranty does not cover damage done by normal fabric care and cleaning; or damage from misuse or abuse.   Replacement fabric is warrantied under the remaining term of the original warranty.   The warranty does not cover damage done by normal fabric care and cleaning; damage from misuse or abuse.
