Retractable awnings and canopies are the perfect solution for homes and commercial spaces to enable you to make the most of the outdoors while still being sheltered from the elements.
Whether you want to create a stylish feature for your garden, an area for entertaining friends and family, or you’re a business looking to create a sheltered terrace for customers that can also serve as a branded promotional tool, retractable awnings can serve a number of purposes.
Awnings provide weather protection, and they create privacy and seclusion for dining or relaxing. Garden and patio awnings are ideal for preventing solar and heat glare, making them a popular choice for south-facing gardens.
In the summer, you can enjoy protection from damaging sun rays while also benefitting from the cooler shade beneath, for the best of both worlds. During rainier seasons, a waterproof retractable awning will act as a barrier to keep you and your guests dry, while also offering protection from the wind. If the weather is just right, retract the awning completely and enjoy your garden or patio as if it’s not there at all.
Manual or Electronic Awnings
A versatile application, retractable awnings can be operated manually or electronically to suit your needs. You can either choose to manually wind them in and out, or extend the awning electronically using a remote or switch. There are also automatic models which include weather sensors to extend or retract depending on the weather, depending on your budget.
The weather can be temperamental, so installing an awning in your outdoor space will enable you to enjoy your garden whatever the weather, without having to worry about an unexpected rain shower or harmful UV rays.
The right fabric can keep your awning looking great and functioning well for many years to come, regardless of the weather conditions. We offer a great selection of fabrics for retractable awnings to suit your taste and the style of property. If you’re unsure which type of fabric you need, our experienced advisors can help you decide.
From textured to smooth, patterned to solid colours, flame-retardant and UV-resistant, we have a host of durable awning fabrics to choose from to suit your budget and your specific requirements.
