Elite Cassette Retractable Patio Awning

Get Durable Awnings

Install Our Elite Cassette Awnings for Your Property in Orange County and San Diego, CA

Our premier retractable sun protection solution, the Elite Cassette, doubling as a retractable canvas deck awning and retractable patio canopy, is designed to house the fabric of your roll out awning in a protective cassette design, while sustaining optimal performance. The ability to retract and safely ‘house’ the cover protects your investment–and keeps your mind at ease when not in use. Enclosed in a powder-coated, extruded aluminum housing, the stylish cassette construction is designed to provide additional protection when your awning is retracted for long periods of time (e.g., off season).

Its two-part, aluminum enclosure surrounds and protects the roller tube and fabric, keeping dirt and debris out of the system, to ensure smooth operation and product longevity

Our unique ‘shoulder-tilting’ mechanism ensures a flush, even enclosure–when the awning is retracting, before it arrives at the roller tube, it moves the arm to true horizontal position, allowing a perfect coupling of the front bar with the cassette housing, forming a tight protective seal.

What is a Full Cassette Retractable Awning?

A roll out awning like the cassette awning, has two or more movable metal arms that automatically extend and retract the fabric cover, with a wall switch or remote, to provide desired area of sun protection. When you purchase an Elite Cassette, you’re choosing a fully protected retractable awning for your patio you’ll never have to worry about. That’s the bottom line: performance plus enhanced durability. Properly used, the Elite Cassette practically pays for itself, potentially halving your energy costs. Discover the elegance and utility our canvas awnings for the patio bring, acknowledged as some of the best retractable awnings in SoCal, to elevate your outdoor living space in Orange County and San Diego, CA.

Many Optional Features Are Available

  • Remote Control Systems: Our remote control systems can provide you with a simple, effective way to control your awnings. Simply press a button to extend or retract them and avoid the hassle of trying to manually work your awnings.
  • Variable Valance: This is, essentially, a valance that’s attached to your awning and can be rolled down to provide additional shade. It’s the perfect way to help you add some additional protection to your property. See More
