Since we offer a large selection of retractable awnings, you are guaranteed to receive the awning that suits your home at a good price.
What is a retractable awning?
A retractable awning is an awning with an aluminum or extruded aluminum frame that is assembled and hangs on the wall of a house. The frame is covered with acrylic fabric that protects against UV rays, mould, rot, and discoloration. The canvas is also waterproof. The awning will therefore protect you from the rain in case of light showers. Since it is attached to the wall of your home, this is a great way to add a living area to it and enjoy your outdoor space to the fullest. The main difference between a retractable awning and a fixed awning is that the former has arms that allow it to retract the awning in on itself. If you want to enjoy the sunshine, therefore, you can. It’s totally up to you whether to have shade or sun.
Motorized or manual retractable awning?
Another advantage of the retractable awning is that you can choose between motorized or manual models. Manual awnings are equipped with a crank and are available in multiple crank lengths and colours. As for motorized retractable awnings, they can be activated with a remote control or a wall switch, according to your preferences. Our awnings can also be customized. We offer more than 300 choices of acrylic fabric colours and patterns. For the frame, we offer about twenty different colours. That way, it’s possible for you to personalize your outdoor space according to your tastes and needs.
There are many worthwhile reasons to own a retractable patio awning. Here are some of these advantages: Protection: To protect you from the sun, wind, and rain; Enjoy your outdoor space: To extend the summer and take advantage of your patio; Ease of maintenance; Strength; Option to choose a freestanding model and move it instead of hooking it to the house; Option to have a variable slope on certain models, which lets you adjust the shade according to the sun; To have more privacy and hide from prying eyes.
