Knowledge CenterCurtains The Tempotest Difference

While not exactly the new kid on the block when it comes to outdoor fabrics, Tempotest™ has been producing premium high performance textiles for a variety of applications, including sun protection, marine and indoor/outdoor furnishing and accessories for over three generations.

Known around the world as The Para Industrial Group, Tempotest™ was founded in 1921 in Italy and has earned the reputation for manufacturing some of the industry’s highest quality textiles with its “Made in Italy” tag.

But is there a difference between Tempotest™ and Sunbrella® fabrics when it comes to outdoor curtains?

Tempotest™ and Sunbrella® fabrics are solution-dyed acrylics that are water repellent and resistant to mold, mildew, and U.V. fading, the best for indoor and outdoor settings.

What sets Tempotest™ apart from Sunbrella® is the width of its fabric. Sunbrella® fabrics are limited to 50 inches width whereas Tempotest™ fabrics are available in 116 inches width. This allows you to fill more space with less.

An example would be filling a 200 ft. space. Using strictly Sunbrella® Curtains may require up to 6 panels, whereas Tempotest™ Extra Wide Curtains would only require 2 panels.

All standard lengths are available in both Sunbrella® and Tempotest™ fabrics, and custom lengths are also available.

When deciding what fabric to choose for an outdoor curtain, Sunbrella® or Tempotest™, there isn't a wrong answer.
