Working together through COVID-19


As the world continues to navigate the impact and uncertainty of COVID-19, we remain committed to making decisions in the best interest of our associates, customers, partners, consumers, and the communities in which we work and live.  Their collective health and safety remain our top priority. 

Our production and distribution facilities continue to operate so we may supply the needs of our customers, consumers, and end-users. Our teams continue to navigate the challenges of global supply chain disruptions and unprecedented demand for many of our fabrics. We have implemented proper safeguards in all our facilities around the globe, following the guidelines provided by the CDC and other health organizations. Our practices include enhanced cleaning, increased distancing between associates on our production lines, extensive testing and contact tracing, and emphasizing proper personal actions including frequent hand washing and wearing masks.  And we regularly monitor and adjust our practices as appropriate. 

In addition, we are actively working with our partners across many industries to leverage our collective production, textile, and supply chain capabilities to help address some of the critical needs of our medical community and frontline workers. Together we are more powerful, and through collaboration with healthcare agencies, hospitals, and other groups we can make a greater impact.

We have a history of coming together and being at our very best in difficult times, and this will be no exception. Compassion, focus and a fighting spirit characterize us and will shine through as we work together to battle through this crisis.

I am proud of the team at Glen Raven and their shared commitment to serving you.

Stay safe and healthy.

Disinfecting Sunbrella Fabrics

With the Covid-19 global pandemic, many of us have become more aware of the things we touch and how we can disinfect them to protect those we care about most.

Sunbrella’s performance doesn’t stop at the finish–it’s engineered into the core of each fabric with a proprietary blend of fibers that are completely saturated with color–making them highly resistant to chemicals and UV light.

As a result, Sunbrella® fabrics can be cleaned and sanitized with disinfectants such as bleach and other chemicals without fear of color loss or degradation. Disinfecting or sanitizing often requires the use of strong chemicals that might damage other fabrics. However, Sunbrella fabric is proven to withstand repeated cleaning with chemicals without voiding our comprehensive warranty.
