An awning is an architectural projection that provides weather protection, identity, or decoration absolutely supported by the building in which it is connected.  An awning is created from a light-weight inflexible skeleton structure over which a fabric cover is attached.

Types of awning structures:

  1. Traditional Standard
  2. Convex
  3. Concave
  4. Dome
  5. Elongated dome
  6. Rounded Entrance Canopy
  7. Retractable Awning
  8. Shade Sails
  9. Fabric Structure

RETRACTABLE AWNING – A lateral arm or retractable awning is a cantilevered awning supported entirely from a wall surface.  This awning style may be retracted or folded against the wall surface in which is attached.  Because it may be retracted in foul weather conditions, the Retractable Awning is currently not subject to stay load requirements (wind, rain, snow, etc.)

It provides shade when you need it and easily moves out of the way when you don’t. That’s the part which makes them one of the most popular types of outdoor awnings. These shades have a massive selection of awnings that will enhance storefronts and living spaces alike, providing curb appeal, UV protection, energy savings, and more.

Benefits of Retractable Awnings:


  • Variety:

Retractable Awnings come in many sizes. They can be small enough to fit a single window or large enough to protect an entire storefront and deck. They are also available in many colors and patterns to fit with any design aesthetic.


  • Lower A/C Bills:

A Retractable Awning will help you save money during the next scorcher. Full sun blazing through your windows will make your A/C work extra hard, but a Retractable Awning will help your home or business stay cool with less power usage.


  • Clear Sight Lines:

Awnings are great for blocking the elements but don’t obstruct the scenery. Whether you want to see the sunset, vast cityscape, or any other view, a Retractable Awning will let you take in the sights.


  • Durability:

Since they aren’t used 24/7, Retractable Awnings tend to last much longer than fixed awnings.


  • Ease of Operation:

Motorized Retractable Awnings are more expensive but make setup and takedown a breeze — perfect for protecting large areas. Manual awnings are ideal when you have a tight budget.
