What Is a Retractable Awning?

A motorized retractable awning or manual retractable awning for patio is simply an awning system that has two or more metal arms that extend and retract a fabric cover to create a sun-protected area, effectively functioning as a patio canopy. These residential patio awnings allow for versatile use in providing shade and comfort in outdoor living spaces.

Explore Different Features

  • Wind Sensors: High winds are dangerous. If a storm blows through, then the high winds could potentially damage your awning if it’s extended. Trying to retract your awning to protect it from a storm can sometimes be difficult—which is where wind sensors can be beneficial. These sensors can detect strong winds and retract your home awnings to help you protect them.
  • Sun/Wind Sensors: Our combined sun and wind sensors can help you get the most out of your awnings. Sun sensors are designed to detect how much sunlight is hitting your awnings and extend or retract them accordingly, allowing you to enjoy the optimal amount of shade and sun protection, no matter what time of day it is. By combining these with wind sensors, you can ensure that your awnings are well taken care of.
  • Timers: Timers are an incredibly convenient feature. They will allow you to extend or retract your home awnings automatically; simply set the timer, and it will handle everything for you.
  • Remote Control Systems: A remote control system can allow you to control your awnings with ease. Our high-quality remote control systems are designed with longevity and functionality in mind, allowing you to get the most out of your awnings.
  • Manual Override Motor: Even if you get a motorized awning, you might need to manually operate it at some point. Our manual override motors are designed to allow you to do this.
  • Optional Hood: A hood can not only add aesthetic appeal to your awning but can also add extra protection when it’s retracted. Get an awning hood that has been customized to your unique specifications. See More
