Explore a Range of Optional Features

  • Wind Sensors: You want to make sure that your awnings for your home are protected. Unfortunately, storms can sometimes come through without warning; if your awning is extended, then it could be torn off by strong winds, which could result in costly repairs. Wind sensors are a way to mitigate this problem, as they can automatically detect high winds and retract your awning for you.
  • Sun/Wind Sensors: Sun sensors are another useful feature to include with your awnings. These sensors can detect how much light is hitting your awning and extend and retract it accordingly. This, in turn, can help you enjoy the optimal amount of shade, regardless of the time of day. We offer combined wind and sun sensors to ensure you get the best product possible.
  • Timers: You likely won’t need to have your awnings extended at all hours of the day. Timers can be an excellent way to control when your awnings are extended or retracted without additional interference. You can simply set the timer, and your awnings for your home will extend or retract automatically, helping you to enjoy the shade.
  • Remote Control Systems: Manual systems can sometimes be frustrating to deal with. A remote control system can be an excellent way to avoid the hassle of manually extending or retracting your awning; you’ll be able to control your awnings for your home with just a push of a button, allowing for easy adjustments and superior solar protection.
  • Optional Hood: Keeping your awnings safe is important. An excellent way to help protect them from the elements is to install a hood. These hoods will not only protect your awning from debris but can also enhance the aesthetic appeal of your property. Our awnings come with a range of different options to choose from so that you can find something that fits your style. See More
