There’s no better way to dress up your home or storefront and provide shade and rain protection than with our Retractable Window Awnings and Door Awnings!
Drop-arm, retractable window awnings are ideal for shading windows and doors and providing shelter from inclement weather. The sloping fabric cover offers an unobstructed view and allows for open door or window fresh air circulation, even in the rain. Our Retractable Window Awnings and Door Awnings can be made with Sunbrella fabric or a wide variety of screen mesh fabrics. These attractive awnings come complete with an integrated hood and end caps that protect the fabric and allow for easy wall or top installation.
The projection angle can be easily adjusted from 0° to 170°, providing the perfect combination of light control and rain protection. The lateral aluminum drop arms, with powerful integrated spring system, assure proper tensioning of the cover fabric, preventing flapping in windy conditions.
Retractable Window and Door Awnings are operated with a standard removable crank and smooth-running bevel gear, or add an optional Somfy electric motor and sun and wind sensors for automatic, worry- free control.
