Docril Application

Fabric Care

General marking and mould is inevitable for outdoor fabrics, prompt attention to the affected area will minimise the chance of staining or fabric degradation.

To obtain the maximum life from Docril awning and blind products, the following points should be noted:

  1. Keep the fabric clean by hosing regularly to remove dust, bird droppings and other solid particles.
  2. No powered, high pressure washes to be used for cleaning fabric. * Warranty will be voided.
  3. Do not apply detergents, cleaning fluids or insecticides. Bleach products should not be used to clean the PU coating on the underside of Docril Nautica fabrics, as bleach will discolour the coating. Strictly use a mild soap solution and water only for cleaning.
  4. Keep petrol, oil, solvents, kerosene and other similar fluids away from the fabric.
  5. Do not allow bird droppings, earth, sand, or vegetable matter to remain in contact with the fabric.
  6. Water based stains should be treated first by rinsing with cold water. If this is not sufficient, Docril may be washed with a mild solution of soap in lukewarm water and rinsed thoroughly. We recommend gentle brushing with a soft brush or sponge as harsh scrubbing can damage the teflon coating.
  7. It is important that a Docril awning or blind is let down to dry after wet weather and should not be rolled up or stowed away when wet. Outdoor furniture and cushions should also be dried before storing away.



This warranty covers Docril acrylic fabric becoming non-functional due to loss of dimensional stability from exposure to conditions including sunlight and other normal atmospheric conditions. This warranty does not cover gradual fading, discolouration from atmospheric pollution, mould or other debris. Abnormal or excessive fading is covered. Any defects found with regard to the fabric configuration, dimension, strength or colour that exist at the time of initial delivery, must be reported to Ricky Richards within a reasonable period of time before fabrication or installation of the material.


The warranty coverage is for 10 years from the date of purchase.


Ricky Richards will provide new fabric at no cost, to replace the non-functioning fabric. This warranty does not cover the cost of labour or other consequential or incidental expenses. This warranty can only be enforced against presentation of the original installers invoice showing fabric reference and colour as well as date of assembly. The correct care procedures (as outlined above) must be followed to ensure that every step has been taken to maintain the Docril acrylic fabric.
