Leading Market Umbrella Manufacturer in Melbourne, Australia

When it comes to engineering and construction, cheaper is not always better. In fact, cheaper often means lower quality and less safety. That‘s why it‘s important to choose products that are engineered and built to a standard, not copied to a price.

Products that are engineered and built to a standard puts quality and safety first. The manufacturers use the best materials and the latest technologies to make sure their products are up to par. They also have strict quality control measures in place to make sure that every product meets their high standards.

On the other hand, a company that copies to a price is more likely to cut corners. They use lower quality materials or outdated technologies in order to keep their costs down. And they probably don’t have the same rigorous quality control measures in place, which means that their products might not meet your expectations.

Graphics & Printing

Awnet use a wide range of technologies to brand our client’s logos and graphics onto durable outdoor substrates.

Currently using a Grand Format UV digital printer which can print up to 3m wide.

Screen printers make Awnet the only company able to print ‘five colour process’ onto acrylic canvas umbrellas.

Thermal welding machines allow Awnet to weld barriers instead of sewing, which massively increases the strength of the finished product.


Awnets ‘Textile Team’ is comprised of skilled sewers who are trained to handle heavy GSM fabrics. Such fabrics are used so the finished product is not only better looking, but also has a longer life span.

Awnet has pattern makers tailoring covers to suit all shapes and sizes, making sure the barriers and umbrellas are drum tight.

Awnet also has a massive, 11m long x 3.2m wide, fully automatic cutter, allowing them to accurately cut all the umbrella and barrier patterns at an incredible speed.
