Retractable awing at the touch of a finger

Remote control

Modern technology has allowed the awning industry to evolve into a high-tech environment with fully motorised applications, operated by remote control. This has been a particular boon for the commercial sector whose need for large outdoor space and overhead shelter from sun, wind and rain is made possible with the press of a button. Previously under-utilised outdoor areas can now be transformed into entertainment hubs, fully sheltered from the elements with motorised retractable or fold arm awnings. Other awning options Other awnings suitable for commercial (and residential) applications include:

  1. Adjustable louvre awnings – the panels can be adjusted to allow sunshine in or to flood the entertainment area with shade. The panels can also be fully closed to protect from the rain. This choice of awning is also available with remote control.
  2. Dome awnings – make a statement at the entrance to commercial premises and are particularly popular as extended entrance walkways to hotels and upmarket restaurants. Dome awnings are also often painted with a business name and other relevant information, serving as an effective billboard.
  3. Ceiling sheet awnings – this patented design creates a waterproof ceiling and usable space under a deck, previously underutilised because of water and dust infiltration.
  4. Fixed acrylic and aluminium awnings – both are made from high-quality materials which do not discolour over time.
  5. Skywave awnings – these are made of aluminium and are can be opened or closed with a remote control device. Skywave awnings are a top-end investment and are highly effective to protect against all of the elements.

Expert Awning Manufacture and Installation – Awning Warehouse

The most important fact to remember when searching for an awnings installation company is that they all differ.  Some are good, some can be indifferent and some can be downright bad.

So, do your due diligence and make sure that you select a reputable awning company to undertake your project. Here are four tips on how to make your choice:

  1. Experience

Nothing speaks volumes more than a business with years of successful trading under its belt. When searching online, look for an awning installation company that has been operating for more than a decade. Make sure, too, that the business deals in the type of awning you prefer or that it can offer you advice on the best installation for your needs. At Awning Warehouse all our installation teams are well trained and employed by Awning Warehouse.

  1. Reputation

Online reviews about awning installation companies can be most helpful. When searching online, you will undoubtedly be impressed by the glowing testimonials of satisfied Awning Warehouse clients. They have worked hard for many years to earn that good reputation.

  1. Full-service package

Apart from an installation service, the business you choose should employ experts in the field who offer a full-service package that includes in-depth design and manufacture know-how. Their expert advice and knowledge will ensure clear and open lines of communication throughout the buying and installation phases of the project.

  1. Personal service

The personal approach to the project is as important as technical know-how. Whether you are a private homeowner, a small start-up operation or a national franchise business, you must be the Number One Customer throughout the project.

Awnings have been around for centuries.

Originally, they were used as a functional way to protect from the sun and heat or cold that was outside your home. These days, you can still find window awnings that do this job very well while also adding an architectural aesthetic to your home. You may be wondering what is so great about a window awning? Well, we will tell you! A window awning does not just provide Protection from the elements; it also provides protection from the harsh UV rays protecting the window and door frames as well as any inside furnishings. The new style awnings now let the light in while providing protection from the elements.

Adjustable Aluminium Louvre Awnings.

Adjustable louvre awnings offer the best of both worlds – sunshine when needed and shade when wanted. Not only do aluminium louvre awnings control light and airflow, they are also completely waterproof when closed against the elements. They can be manually or automatically operated and the enamel-baked adjustable aluminium panels offer many years of rust and maintenance-free service. This Awning Warehouse product is combined with a unique moulded gutter system to disperse rainfall away from the entertainment area.

Consider adding some custom designed outdoor blinds to make this area unique!

Relax Outdoors in any Season.

An adjustable louvered roof gives you the shade you would like to make indoor/outdoor living more flexible and cosier.  Better of all, you will adjust the quantity of shade you would like as the sun changes position. When it’s a touch cooler in the morning, you’ll leave all the louvers wide open to soak up the sun.  When it is hot, simply close the louvers for more shade. If it starts to rain a louvered roof can be closed when raindrops start, easily protecting everything underneath.

Entertaining outdoors has never been easier.  You can entertain rain or shine and know that your guests are going to be comfortable. Custom features from lighting to heating increase the outdoor entertaining experience.

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.

Simple Fold Arm Awning

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.
