What Makes a Retractable Patio Awning a Retractable Awning Anyway?

A retractable awning is an awning with movable arms that extend or retract the fabric. The arms themselves are metal, the number and length of which depend on the size of the covering itself. Generally, most residential awnings will have at least two arms for the most support.

What Is Our Elite Cassette Retractable Patio Awning?

The Elite Cassette is our premium tier retractable awning. This full package awning encloses the fabric into a powder coated, extruded aluminum housing. Accent’s cassette construction provides classic eye appeal while offering additional protection for your awning when retracted for long periods of time.

When you purchase an Elite Cassette awning, you’re choosing a fully protected awning you’ll never have to worry about. The Elite Cassette Retractable Awning is custom-made in our own factory and subject to rigorous quality control procedures like all other Accent made products.

The Elite Cassette awning uses a two-part, aluminum enclosure that surrounds the roller tube and fabric, keeping dirt and debris out of the system. The shoulder-tilting mechanism uses a unique design that guarantees a flush, even enclosure. When the awning is retracting, at about six inches before it arrives at the roller tube, the mechanism causes the arm to “jump” to a true horizontal position. This allows a perfect coupling of the front bar with the cassette housing.

Accent’s cassette construction is eye-catching yet practical, offering additional protection for your awning when retracted for long periods of time. With the ability to span any width from 6 to 19.8 feet and four projections ranging from 5 to 10 feet, the Elite Cassette provides maximum shade and protection.

Many Optional Features Are Available

  • Wind Sensors: High winds can potentially tear your awnings from your home if they’re fully extended. Installing wind sensors can help you avoid this issue; these sensors will automatically detect high winds and retract your awnings for you, helping you to avoid potential damage.
  • Sun/Wind Sensors: Combined sun and wind sensors can be incredibly beneficial. Not only will these sensors detect strong winds, but they can also detect changes in sunlight, allowing them to extend or retract your awnings for the perfect shade at any time of day.
  • Timers: Timers can add convenience to your residential awnings. This useful technology will allow you to set your retractable awnings to extend or retract at specific times, allowing you to avoid the hassle of trying to manually control your system.
  • 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
