Why Do You Need an Awning?
Did you ever happen to sit under a tree on a hot summer day and feel the cool shade? Close your eyes and imagine the same feeling coming out of your own windows, doors and patio. Extend your living space to the outdoors with the help of our awnings.
The US Department of Energy Studies shows awnings can reduce solar heat gain up to 77% and lower room temperatures up to 20 degrees. In the winters, awnings allow the gentle sun but keep the cold wind off.
Awnings are a solid investment hard to match any other home products. Whether it is a tree or a tarp made out of straw, the awning has been protecting us from the damaging sun rays for so many years.
The awning was not only fashionable but also functional in its usage from shading marketplaces to protecting livestock. While the concept is nothing new, the application of its usage is what concerns us most today.
Canvas awnings lasted for maybe 5 years up until 20 years ago. The acrylic awnings of today have an average fabric lifespan of 15-20 years! All our awnings have a 10-year warranty and protected from rotting, mildew and fading, not to mention being water-repellent too.
By blocking 94% of the harmful rays that cause skin cancer, awnings using Sunbrella® UPF 50+ fabrics are labeled ‘Recommended’ by the Skin Cancer Foundation.
