Summer is here and it’s time to enjoy your outdoor space. However, if your garden is exposed to the sun, it can be uncomfortable and even dangerous for your skin. Retractable awnings are an ideal solution to enjoy your outdoor space while being protected from the sun.

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

Retractable awnings offer many benefits, including:

  • Protect against UV rays: Retractable awnings block harmful UV rays, protecting your skin and outdoor furniture from sun damage.
  • Create a friendly atmosphere: Retractable awnings create an aesthetic and friendly atmosphere by adding a touch of style to your outdoor space.
  • Save energy: Retractable awnings help reduce energy consumption by blocking the sun’s rays and keeping your home cooler.
  • Easy to use: Retractable awnings are easy to use and install. They retract easily when you don’t need them.

A motorized or manual retractable awning?

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.

A standard or custom retractable awning?

A question that many of our customers ask themselves when the time comes to choose between a retractable awning or a standard awning such as those found in supermarkets. We recommend to all our customers to opt for a custom retractable awning, mainly for two reasons:

Firstly, choosing a custom retractable awning allows you to manipulate all aspects of it (colors of the canvas and structure, dimensions and accessories) so that it integrates perfectly with the specificities of your residence (space and architecture).

Secondly, installing a custom retractable awning ensures that the customer has chosen the perfect shading solution and the type of protection they are looking for. Unlike standard awnings, retractable awnings are made from different materials to provide the required protection.
