Retractable awnings

A retractable awning is an awning with a heavy-duty or extruded aluminum structure that is assembled, and which hangs from the wall of a house. The structure is then covered with an acrylic fabric that protects against UV rays and discoloration. This resistant fabric is also waterproofed, which protects it from rot and mould. The awning will also protect you from rain in the event of light showers.

Since it is attached to the wall of your house, this is an excellent solution for adding a living area to it and enjoying your outdoor space to the fullest. The main difference between the retractable awning and the fixed awning is that it has arms that allow it to retract the awning in on itself. So, if you want to enjoy the sun, you can. It’s entirely up to you whether to have shade or sun.

Our awnings can also be personalized (colours, size, patterns…). We offer more than 300 different colours and patterns of acrylic fabrics. For the structure, we offer about twenty different colours. It is therefore possible for you to customize your outdoor living space according to your tastes and needs.

Another advantage of the retractable awning is that you can choose from motorized or manual models. Manual awnings are equipped with a hand crank and come in multiple crank colours and lengths.

As for motorized awnings, they can be activated with a remote control or a wall switch, according to your preferences.

There are several worthwhile reasons to own a manual or motorized retractable awning:

  • Protection: To protect yourself from the sun and weather conditions such as wind and snow;
  • Take advantage of your outdoor space: To extend the summer and enjoy your patio;
  • Easy to maintain thanks to the good quality material;
  • Strength;
  • An impressive lifespan;
  • Possibility to choose a freestanding awning and move it around instead of attaching it to the house;
  • Possibility to have a variable slope on some models, which allows adapting the shade according to the sun;
  • To have more privacy and hide from prying eyes;
  • A terrace in color: the terrace in burgundy color gives cachet to your patio. We also offer a wide range of colors and styles for a retractable awning design that will perfectly match your outdoor design.

Our fabrics and canvas are made of acrylic, which allows cutting the UV rays and the sun. We offer them in over 300 different colors and patterns. Our scallops allow you to customize and make your manual or motorized retractable awning unique. We offer over 100 different options with single, double or swinging festoons.

You can also have a wind and rain sensor installed. This allows the awning to retract automatically in case of strong wind or rain. It is also possible to have several settings on it.

No, the retractable awning is not winter resistant. This type of awning is three seasons only. However, it is not necessary to completely remove the awning before winter. It is possible to simply close the patio awning.

You can also protect it by purchasing covers to cover it. This will give it extra protection and keep small rodents like squirrels from making a nest in it. Just remember to never open the patio awning in the winter. By following these tips, you will avoid damage to your awning and be able to keep it as long as possible.


Enjoy the comfort of a retractable awning

More than a question of aesthetics, the awning is the best solution to enjoy your outdoor space in comfort. During the day, it protects you from the sun’s harmful rays, especially during hot summer days. It will protect you from heavy rain too.

In the evening and in the cooler season, equip it with a residential patio heater to maintain your comfort level on your patio. We also offer many accessories to allow you to customize your investment to the fullest. To get an awning of unbeatable quality and unmatched value, trust Polo Awnings.
