5 benefits of retractable awnings

 

1- Protection

Retractable awnings provide protection from the sun’s harsh rays. While we often think about people protection, these awnings also provide fabulous protection for furniture and floor coverings as well.

2- Energy saving

Retractable awnings will reduce solar heat gain. With your awning extended you can naturally cool down your internal environment. This in turn allows energy costs to be cut as your requirement for fans or air conditioning will become less.

3- Increase living space

An extended awning will immediately afford you extra living space while offering protection at the same time. Retract and extend your awning depending on how much shade, sun or privacy you desire at any time of day, and you will have extra living space in the fresh outdoors.

4- Home improvement

Placing a retractable awning over your patio, courtyard or yard will extend your living area and increase the value of your home.

5- Customisation

Fabric type, colour, size and motorisation are just some of the options on offer. Virtually any type of retractable awning can be made to suit your taste and need.

So, you can see, by considering the added value, energy efficiency and protection it makes sense to invest in retractable awnings for your home.
