Retractable Patio Awnings
Increase the comfort of your backyard, patio or deck with an attractive and stylish retractable patio awning. At Awning Authority we help you find solutions for your patio - protect yourself, your patio and outdoor furniture from the heat and the harmful UV rays on those hot summer days.
Awnings, or overhangs, are a secondary covering attached to the exterior of a building. They are typically made of woven canvas, often with laminated vinyl layers or other protective treatments, and stretched over a strong or rigid structure for support. Awnings, in various formats, have been around centuries, offering protection against sun, rain, and wind, and helping make indoor and outdoor spaces more comfortable for everyone. They can be an attractive and useful addition to your home, protecting it and increasing its value.
BENEFITS OF RETRACTABLE AWNINGS AND SHADE PRODUCTS
ADD BEAUTY AND COMFORT
Awnings can be made from a very wide variety of fabrics with many patterns and colours available to match all styles and tastes. Superior stain resistant fabrics allow for a simple clean. A quality metal housing protects the fabric from weather and birds from nesting.
A NATURAL AIR CONDITIONER
On the hottest summer days, many households run air conditioning around the clock, incurring high electricity bills and generating greenhouse gases. However, blocking sunlight using awnings, particularly at southern and western exposures, can help reduce temperatures on the patio by as much as 12 degrees Celsius, and by 8 degrees indoors
Along with increasing the comfort of your backyard patio or deck a retractable shade product can protect you and your furniture from harmful UV rays. It will considerably extend the longevity of your furniture and decor, prevent colours from fading, and fabrics from disintegrating.
CONVENIENCE WITH A WARRANTY
A retractable awning can cover up to 7 meters (23 feet) along the wall and project out as far as 4 meters (13 feet) – enough to cover even the largest patios or terraces.
