Why have we chosen PVC over Canvas for the Wildback Canopy?

As a tonneau cover manufacuture for the past sixteen years we know materials. When we decided to produce a range of soft canopies we conducted many tests using both our perfered tonneau material (PVC) as well as the industry standard canvas. 

Our canopies are made from PVC which is a far superior product. It is 100% waterproof and won’t shrink over time. The PVC we use is high quality and UV stabilised so it won’t fade in the sun. Unlike Canvas made canopies, our canopies are also anti-mould and mildew so you don’t have to worry about them becoming a health hazard. The main reason we use PVC instead of canvas is because it is more durable and long lasting. Our canopies are made to last with double stitching in all load bearing areas and heavy duty, reinforced PK heavy duty #10 zips. We use high quality webbing for our loops which won’t stretch or tear over time.

PK heavy duty #10 zips are used in all Wildback canopies. These zips are renowned in the marine industry for their strength and reliability. They are made of a corrosion resistant material, which makes them ideal for use in salt water environments. The zip pulls are also designed to be easy to grip, even when wet. All Wildback canopies are sewn together with rot proof stitching specifically designed for use in marine environments and is renowned for its strength and maximum durability. It is also UV resistant, which helps to prevent fading and degradation of the canopy fabric over time.

This system is specifically designed to meet the harsh and demanding conditions of the Australian environment. The material is a versatile and durable fabric that offers many benefits over other traditional materials. Its high tear, tensile and bond strength make it ideal for a variety of applications, while its resistance to UV damage and abrasion make it perfect for outdoor use. PVC is also resistant to mould and mildew, making it an ideal choice for a variety of environments. PVC is a durable fabric that is easy to clean and maintain. It is also highly flame retardant, making it an ideal choice for outdoor furniture and accessories. PVC is also resistant to salt spray, heat, and harsh solar rays, making it an ideal choice for canopies. Aussie Tonneaus use only the highest quality materials in our canopies, to ensure that they are built to last. We believe that our canopies are the best on the market, and we stand behind them with a 2 year warranty.
