What Is a Retractable Awning?

Accent’s retractable awnings are the premier solution for solar protection. From Sunbrella® certified fabric to seamless retractability, these awnings are in a league of their own. Our extensive retractable awning warranty covers everything from the fabric to the arm mechanisms. The ability to retract during extreme weather protects your investment while keeping you cool throughout the warmer seasons. Overtime, these awnings practically pay for themselves, cutting energy costs in half when installed and used properly.

Once you consider the value and convenience of retractable awnings, consider customizing a style to fit your vision. With 4 retractable options to choose from, over 120 different fabric styles and various forms of functionality – like remotely controlled retractability, wind and sun sensors and timers – there are plenty of ways to create the shade you need.

Our Uni-Lux Retractable Patio Awning Is One of the Best Options in the Industry

Our mid-level awning, the Uni-Lux, is fabricated without compromise of quality. With construction superior to that of other awnings in its category and ideal for the cost-conscious customer, the Uni-Lux retractable awning is custom-made to order in the same factory and by the same people as our Elite® class awnings. The Uni-Lux retractable awning is sewn with the same PTFE Teflon® thread and utilizes the same high-grade, stainless steel hardware as the premium Elite® awning.

The Uni-Lux features an elegant, weatherproof, white powder coated frame with the ability to span any width from 6 to 18 feet and a spring arm system designed for multiple projections (5-10 feet). With a wide range of stunning fabrics, you can now protect sun-ravaged furniture, patios, decks and balconies. On hot summer days, the Uni-Lux retractable awning will cool the interior of your home by as much as 20 degrees.

The more you look, the more you’ll notice that all retractable awnings are simply not created equal. The Uni-Lux is available in a tasteful selection of 100+ fabrics and a double white, powder coated aluminum framework.

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
