Horizontal Louvre Systems Counteract the Adverse Impact of Summer Heat

Aluminium louvre systems offer an architecturally pleasing and effective sun control solution to counteract the harsh glare and heat of South African summer months. These louvre systems are available in various shapes and sizes and can be adapted to enhance the quality of both indoor and outdoor living.

Louvre panels can be attached to the exterior of a building, adding aesthetic appeal and keeping interior spaces at comfortable temperature levels. Louvre systems also significantly reduce of cost of running energy-consuming cooling systems.

The versatility of aluminium louvres is what makes them so attractive to property owners wishing to expand their outdoor living footprint. For example, louvre panels can be strategically placed in outdoor locations to provide cool shade and filtered sunlight around pools and patios. Add potted plants, with bursts of colourful flowers, for an inspiring and satisfying outdoor living experience.

But the creativity of these versatile temperature control louvre panel systems does not stop there – they can be further enhanced with an adjustable louvre roof to create an ideal enclosed poolside or patio entertainment area. Construction of an outdoor living space encapsulated by louvre systems is low-impact, efficient and quick to erect.

Horizontal screens offer excellent protection from the summer heat and glare and are guaranteed for a full 10 years. These lightweight roll- formed all-aluminium louvre systems are coated with a specially formulated paint to protect against all climatic conditions.

These sun louvre systems:

  • Keep interiors cool
  • Save on electricity costs
  • Are aesthetically pleasing
  • Require low maintenance
  • Are available in a wide range of colour-fast colours

Horizontal sun louvres are available in bold or light profiles. They are custom-made in varying lengths to suit all architectural styles.

Fold Arm Awnings

With aluminium powder-coated folding arms and caps, canvas fold arm awnings extend outdoor living space, transforming patios and decks into a cool oasis even on the hottest of South Africa’s summer days.

Retractable Awnings

Retractable awnings are the awesome Big Daddy of outdoor shade and wet weather solutions. These waterproof awnings glide across the outdoor living space and the awning can be stopped at any point to enhance filtered sunlight or to embrace starry skies.

How much are Awnings for Decks?

Deck awnings come in all shapes and sizes, as well as in a variety of materials. So there are no hard-and-fast costing guidelines as these will depend on the type of awning selected, as well as the material used in the finished product.

There are retractable awnings, both manual and motorised, fixed awnings, canvas awnings, adjustable louvre awnings, ceiling sheet awnings, dome awnings, pergola and patio shade awnings, fold-arm awnings, aluminium awnings, skywave awnings … clients are spoiled for choice.

The higher-quality awnings, such as polycarbonates, retractable and motorised systems, cost more because the materials used offer durability and years of maintenance-free service.

Clients should investigate all available options before making a final deck awning choice. This may be a big investment but the advantages far outstrip the financial outlay. Awnings turn unused outdoor areas into comfortable living spaces while adding to the value of the property.

Patio Roof Designs

Patios are an outdoor extension of your indoor lifestyle. With an astute roof design, you can reflect your personality while adding value to your property.

Over the years, patio roof designs have evolved to suit individual taste, provide shelter from the weather and tailored for budgetary constraints. Among these patio roof designs are awnings, including both fixed and retractable solutions. These are available in canvas or insulated roof ceiling sheets.

Canvas patio awnings are a budget-friendly roof design solution. They are available in a wide range of colour pallets, complementing the exterior of the building. Canvas awnings can be fixed, or operated with a retractable arm. This allows for an extension across the outdoor living area.

An insulated roof with ceiling sheets can be erected with aluminium or polycarbonate thermoplastic. Both offer many years of low-maintenance service and have thermal qualities than enhance the outdoor living experience.

Patio Roof Ideas

There is no better way to protect your patio than with an insulated roofing solution. This can range from polycarbonate and canvas awnings to louvre deck coverings.

Polycarbonate is always a popular choice. It is a high-quality product with a life span of up to 20 years. This product has built-in UV-blocking qualities that can withstand extreme temperatures. Polycarbonate is a thermoplastic material, ideal as a roofing solution for patios, sunrooms and decks.

Another insulated roofing solution is canvas awning canopies. Not only do these add space to homes and business premises, they also offer great protection from all weather conditions. Canvas awnings are available as fixed or retractable roofing solutions.

Insulation of outdoor living spaces is essential for the South African climate. Not only does it protect property from the harsh elements of wind, rain, heat and cold, but insulation also acts as a thermal blanket which cuts down costs for heating or cooling.

What are Retractable Arm Awnings?

Be it patio ideas, or improvements to any other outdoor space, retractable awnings are the answer for a comfortable and relaxed lifestyle. These extendable awnings offer great protection from the sun, cold winds and rain.

One of the many reasons why retractable awnings are so popular is that they can be custom-made to suit any shape or size outdoor entertainment area. Apart from private homes, retractable awnings are popular for commercial use such as outdoor restaurants and pubs.

Awning Warehouse has taken full advantage of the awning “revolution” with its custom-designed options that make the most of outdoor living areas. The main attractions of retractable awnings are:

  • They require no structural alterations to a property
  • Attached to two arms, the awning will slide across or retract from the outdoor space with the mere push of a button
  • There is no need to erect any support poles as they are attached to the wall of the building
  • They are extremely flexible, offering property owners the ideal solution to cope with the South African climate

Top-quality imported canvas is used that is UV-resistant and dyed to enhance the client’s colour palette. Brilliant splashes of colour can be selected to transform previously wasted spaces and all of this can be achieved at the fraction of the cost of a building project.

A retractable side awning offers the perfect privacy solution. Popular as back patio privacy shades, retractable side awnings are mainly used to screen entertainment areas, such as swimming pools and braai patios from neighbouring properties. These awnings consist of three main components – a metal frame, fabric and attachment brackets. They can be custom-made and their ease of installation makes them ideal for DIY enthusiasts.

The South African awning market is exciting with a diverse range of products to suit all outdoor lifestyles.
