What is a retractable awning?

A retractable awning is an awning with an aluminum or aluminum frame covered with an acrylic fabric that protects against UV rays. The fabric is also waterproofed, so it protects you from the sun and rain, while remaining in your outdoor space.

This type of awning readily adapts to your needs. The retractable awning, which opens either manually or by a motor, allows you to determine the distance you need to protect yourself from the sun or light rain, depending on the temperature and the time of day.

Most of our opening mechanisms for retractable awnings allow you to adjust the height of the valence. You can also add an automatic device to the electric mechanism, which opens the awning as soon as the sun appears and closes it as soon as the wind velocity increases.

In addition, our retractable awnings are manufactured with the highest-grade materials available in the industry.

The advantages of retractable awnings

The main advantage of the retractable awning is that it can be retracted at sunset, depending on your needs. If you have a box with your custom-made retractable awning, you can simply leave the fabric inside during the winter. This way, there is no need to store the fabric of your custom awning. Retractable awnings are functional for 3 seasons, while fixed custom awnings can be 4 seasons.

Motorized or manual?

There are two models for the retractable awning: motorized or manual.

  • The motorized retractable awning retracts and opens with a remote control or a wall switch, offering more comfort in handling your retractable awning.
  • The manual retractable awning comes with a hand crank available in several colors and sizes to raise the awning.
