Creative Designs

…inspired by nature, the latest architectural trends and local specifications.

High-quality acrylic yarn…

…which has a particularly long lifespan and maintains a stable UV protection thanks to its solution-dyeing process.

Innovation & Research

...making us a forerunner of the market in sun-protection. Thanks to CBA – a filament fibre created purely for Sattler – and the expertise of our technicians, we are in the position to manufacture highest quality sun-protection fabrics and continuously introduce new effects into our collections.

State-of-the-art weaving mill...

…in which acrylic yarns of the most diverse surface structures are woven into top-modern designs.

Longevity of equipping…

…which, thanks to the in-house TexGARD impregnation, repels soil and water from the fabric like in a lotus flower effect, thereby making your awning the centrepiece of your terrace for many years to come.

Delivery reliability and top quality

…makes us to who we are – forerunners in quality for sun-protection!

Protect values, create atmosphere
and this all with a highTEX Quality!

Besides the demand to develop perfect fabrics for outdoor use and for new applications, our aim is clearly to manufacture products in a sustainable way and to use available resources wisely.
