If you’re here it’s probably because you’re looking for a garden shade solution and you’ve taken an interest in awnings. Awnings are a fantastically stylish way to shelter a patio, porch or lawn while all the while adding value to your home. Not only do they perform several useful functions, they boost the curb appeal of your property.
With regard to their functionality, there are numerous benefits to having an awning. A retractable awning will extend your living space by allowing you to make full use of your patio or porch. Almost everyone would like to get outside more often, and with an awning installed either on the front or the back of the house you’ll be far more likely to relax outside.
And you can do so secure in the knowledge that you’re providing a safe, sheltered environment for your friends and family. By sitting beneath an extended awning, you’ll benefit from an ultraviolet protective factor of 50+ which all of our awning fabrics provide. That’s the equivalent of blocking out 98% of all the sun’s harmful UV rays.
You’ll also save on your cooling energy bills by reducing the need for air conditioning in the home. By installing an awning over a window you’ll instantly create enough shade over that window to reduce the heat inside the home. Take full advantage of that reduction in temperature by cutting back on your air conditioning usage.
Why Choose A Standard Awning?
Our range of standard awnings is the most flexible and competitively priced entry level awning on the market. While you may be able to find either a cheaper alternative or a more luxurious alternative elsewhere, you’ll struggle to find a better example of value and function combined in a single awning.
Our standard awnings are made from lightweight but hard-wearing powder coated aluminum. The powder coating process ensures the aluminum stands up to the coldest and wettest weather without wearing away.
Our range of 15 fabric colors each provides 98% UV protection at factor 50+. Sitting under a standard awning will keep you safely shaded and sheltered. Furthermore, each fabric is treated and waterproofed to ensure you’ll be covered against any rainfall that might occur.
If you should wish to change the color fabric on your awning at any point after your order, it’s a straightforward 30 minute operation with a standard awning. The fabric and roller easily slide out from the rest of the frame allowing you to run a new fabric onto the roller before replacing it back in the frame.
Extension and retraction of the awning is controlled by a manual hand crank located on the left hand side of the frame. The smooth operation makes it easy to roll either in or out. And whilst a motor is an added benefit, operating a standard awning without one reduces the number of parts which can potentially need repair or replacement.
