What the manufacturer says:-
The Air Erect System AES is a latest generation easy to use simplified air erect system. It is simplified to make it easier to use and less to go wrong. The system uses 3 layers for strength and stability. It has the internal bladder which is the part that you inflate. You then have a PE cover that adds protection to your bladder and aids stability. You then have a sleeve which is sewn into the awning which adds a final layer of protection and stability. The air erect system also benefits from an extra reinforced PE cover. This makes the PE cover stronger particually in the corners and bends. This not only improves the protection you get from the PC cover but also the stability of the awning as the tube is held in place and position better. The Air Erect System has individual air tubes rather than a joined system which makes each tube extremely easy to pump up and in the event of a failure only one tube is affected. It also uses an easy to use single way value for inflation which is simplicity itself simply push the pump in and pump.
Hydrotech SL fabric is a latest generation lightweight material. The fabric itself is a UV coated and treated 190T polyester. It has an advanced durable UV coating which gives it extra protection against the harmful suns UV rays and extends the life of your awning. The material is extremely lightweight making it easy to handle. The material is fast drying as it does not soak up the rain and water and is easy to clean.
The anti-weather system is not one item but a host of improvements and updates that give the awning better weather protection. There are additional weather panels sewn into the canvas at points where the weather could get in. This panel is PU coated on both sides and taped on both sides giving you better weather protection. There is additional guttering on external windows or zips which add extra protection against the rain. All tie back points or pockets that are sewn in are made from 100 waterproof PVC rather than standard webbing material. Standard material can soak water up and eventually lead to leaks the waterproof PVC simply does not.
