Colors & Fabrics

We offer a variety of fabrics and colors to meet all your canvas and shade needs. We can acquire and work with additional fabrics and colors, but the ones listed below are proven to be up to Waterloo Tent’s standards. 

Sunburst Vinyl

Our 14oz. Sunburst Vinyl is a high-gloss, ultra-smooth surfaced fabric used for theme park and event applications for over 25 years. It is certified flame retardant, UV and mildew resistant, and 100% waterproof. It is vinyl laminated on a weft insertion scrim base of high tenacity filament polyester. The weight is 14 oz. per linear yard and it has a 3-year manufacturer’s warranty against failure due to excessive vinyl degradation.

Sunshade Mesh

A high-quality, heavy-duty knitted shade fabric specifically designed for tension structures, awnings, and shade covers. Sunshade mesh is a great solution for water parks and aquatic facilities. It is a UV stabilized HDPE Mono/Tape construction fabric with a lock stitch knitted pattern. It has a temperature range of -22 F to 167 F. It is 91% - 98.8% UV protective, and comes with a 10-year manufacturer’s warranty against UV degradation.

Premium Mesh

Available in bright, designer colors, Shade Creations Premium Mesh, is not only appealing to the eye, but has superior strength and performance. A step above the standard in strength and durability, it has an extended UV warranty, and increased stability, aiding in shape retention which results in little to no re-tensioning after initial installation. It is fire retardant certified, vandal resistant, and performs well in excessive winds.


Highly resistant to UV rays, mildew, and water penetration, and has excellent fade resistance. Sunbrella is ideally used for canopies, covers, and enclosures. Sunbrella is a 100% woven solution dyed acrylic with a fluorocarbon finish. It weighs 9.25oz per sp. yd, and has a 5-year manufacturer’s warranty.

Pop Up Tents - Solid Color Top Options

Our Pop Up tents come with the option of having a solid color top or a fully printed top with logos, pictures, and designs. Should you need just a solid color top, here are the color options we offer.

Powder Coat

Our powder coat colors give you the flexibility to theme your entire structure. All of our frame components are thoroughly cleaned and primed before powder coating. ASTM standards for adhesion, hardness, impact, flexibility, overbake resistance, and salt spray are met.

Pop Up Tents

Pop Up Shade is a great solution for festivals, seasonal get-togethers, and sporting events. Tops are available in Vinyl (colors shown above) and Polyester. Polyester Pop Up tops can be made in solid colors (shown below). We can also create custom designs that incorporate your logo!
