As part of our upcoming arch project
we're looking to either re-work the bimini
for a little added height (aft of the boom) or possibly integrate portions of it into the arch.
Anyway, my question is around Sunbrella Supreme as a fabric
choice. We've been considering either Navy
or possibly black as the new color (currently hunter
green). All 3 options are very dark and our current
(regular Sumbrella) bimini
gets pretty warm and radiates heat down. I've heard and read that the supreme, with it's lighter weight and color lining prevents some of that radiated heat. We also like the look of the light fabric
on the inside to brighten things up, but I'm curious if anyone here can comment on if there is any impact on actual heat radiated down through the fabric?
Realistically, we'll probably end up adding some flexible solar panels
on top anyway, so insulation
isn't the primary goal, but I'm still curious.
