TenCate Outdoor Fabrics has been the exclusive partner of NYFAN in Greece for 40 years.

Partnership with Nyfan

NYFAN is a producer and supplier of sun awning systems that focus on the growing need for protection against sun and rain. In this customer case, we take a more in-depth look at the collaboration between sun protection solutions from Nyfan and the sun awning fabric from TenCate Outdoor Fabric.

The partnership between Nyfan and TenCate Outdoor Fabrics

The collaboration between Nyfan and TenCate began in the 1980s. Originally Nyfan was a distributor of TenCate sun awning canvas and later began producing and supplying complete sun awning systems such as pergolas, folding arm awnings, screens and more.

The partnership between Nyfan and TenCate Outdoor Fabrics is unique. A relationship built on mutual trust with a solid foundation. Nyfan has grown into a total supplier in the field of sun protection by continually innovating and co-developing new collections. TenCate Outdoor Fabrics is now a prominent brand in Greece.

Market leader in Greece

TenCate Outdoor Fabrics has a rich history of supplying high-quality technical outdoor fabrics. With years of experience in sun awning fabrics in Southern Europe, TenCate develops the finest quality products. Nyfan, using fabric from TenCate Outdoor Fabrics, is the market leader in Greece in this specialized field of awning fabrics for almost forty years. A market where high UV levels, durability and colour-fastness are extra important. More than 15,000,000 metres of sun awning fabric, of which almost 2 million has been digitally printed, has already been incorporated in sun awning systems in the Greek market.

Durable and strong material

Delivering high-quality products is the starting point of every innovation at TenCate Outdoor Fabrics. Sun awning fabrics are no exception. Through continual and critical testing, we guarantee the long-term quality of our fabrics. Durability, stretch & tear strength and colour-fastness are always central to the technical design of our sun awning fabric. Of course, we also test extensively how the fabric performs in real-life.

Unique digital printing technique

We have several industrial digital printers at our production facilities in Nijverdal, which means we have the ability to print larger volumes in a short time. The specialized printing technique has been developed in collaboration with partners within TenCate and is suitable for use on outdoor textiles. Our latest technology has the ability to print a design on both sides of the sun awning fabric. This ‘two-sided’ approach to designing fabrics for outdoor applications offers unique opportunities for the customer to specially develop bespoke collections. We have the capability to print to photo quality with high resolution (very high dpi). TenCate Outdoor Fabrics offers endless possibilities with its digital printing technology; from standard collections to unique custom-made collections in low minimum order quantities.
