Design + Performance™
Commercial spaces demand both style and durability. Design is critical, but those designs must last through the heavy use and rigorous cleanings that commercial spaces require. Sunbrella® Contract fabrics are engineered to the specific challenges of commercial environments. We work with top partners in the business to bring beautiful, soft and durable contract textiles to busy commercial spaces.
Sunbrella Contract Fabrics
Featuring beautiful color palettes, sophisticated styles, and a luxurious touch, Sunbrella Contract fabrics elevate commercial spaces by blending upscale design and reliability.
When you’re creating warm, inviting spaces in high-traffic commercial environments, choosing the perfect color and the right pattern are just half the equation. That’s because stunning design doesn’t simply look good – it performs, too. Sunbrella Contract fabrics combine the incredible durability and ultimate cleanability businesses need with the comforting softness and style customers demand.

UL Environment visited Glen Raven manufacturing operations and evaluated Sunbrella Contract fabrics, and they have certified that these products comply with the environmental and social-responsibility criteria of this holistic standard.
