Why Use Acrylic Fabrics?

In South Australia, acrylic fabrics are rarely used on External Blinds. Traditionally our market has preferred PolyCotton canvas which completely blocks out the heat or, more recently, Polyester Mesh fabrics which allow light and view through the blinds. In the Northern states, however, PolyCotton is not appropriate because the cotton content can allow mould to form and as such Acrylic fabrics are used. Acrylic Fabrics are a man-made fabric similar, but far superior to the polyester used in clothes. Stan Bond offers a range of Acrylic Fabrics which can be used in many external situations.

When do you use Acrylic Fabrics?

We recommend using Acrylic Fabrics on Folding Arm Awnings because they are light but very strong. They also provide UV protection whilst still allowing light to come through. They are great where a customer wants to avoid blocking out all the light to an area, especially a living area, but still requires privacy.

What ranges do we offer?

Stan Bond is one of the largest manufacturers of Blinds and Awnings in South Australia. It is also a member of Fashionline, the largest buying group in the Australian Blind Industry. Due to these relationships, we have access to most fabrics in the Australian market. Two Acrylic fabrics we know well and generally recommend – Docril Acrylic by Ricky Richards & Planosol by Gottschalk. These two fabrics have great products, warranties and colour ranges and because of their long history we know we can recommend them safely to our customers.

I had three sets of day-night blinds installed and a Veri-shade. Very happy with the total experience from Stan Bond. Professional advice, personal assistance, on time, easy to deal with. I benefited from the suggestions and care taken by each staff member. The blinds and shade look lovely and perform exactly as I had hoped.

It is so rare these days that a company offers such wonderful service and quality of product. From the very start to the very end, nothing short of pure excellence. Jenny was amazing with her suggestions and ideas, her patience very much appreciated and her ability to get the job done within limited timescales very much appreciated. This is my second experience with this company, internal shutters and curtains to go to complete my home and I will not even bother to get quotes elsewhere. Thank you Jenny, and all the team at Stan Bond - don't ever close your doors please!

We found Stan Bond to have really friendly, knowledgeable staff, they were reasonably priced, had fast turnaround and the installer was efficient and cleaned up after himself and was of minimal disruption to our office staff who were all working throughout the installation process. Very happy with the service, we would definitely use again.
