Robusta Retractable Window Awning

Enjoy Increased Shade and Privacy

Install Retractable Window Awnings for Your Home in Orange County & San Diego, CA

Your property’s first line of defense against the sun should be exterior window awnings. Retractable window awnings effectively block the sun’s rays and can reduce indoor temperature by up to 20° placing climate control (and energy cost savings) at your fingertips.
What is a Retractable Window Awning?

Retractable window awnings are outdoor window awnings that extend and retract using a hand crank, remote, or switch. With a 165-degrees range of motion, they give you maximum control to protect your property from solar heat and light, while providing privacy, and style.

A Range of Options to Meet Your Needs

  • Wind Sensors: High winds can be a potential problem for window retractable awnings. Wind sensors can help you address this issue. These sensors are designed to detect changes in the wind; when the wind gets too strong, the sensors will cause your porch awning or deck awning to automatically retract, helping to keep them safe.
  • Sun/Wind Sensors: You want to ensure that your home stays comfortable. Manually adjusting your residential window awnings can sometimes be a hassle; thankfully, sun sensors can help make things easier. These sensors will adjust your awnings according to the angle of the sun, allowing you to make sure that only the right amount of light is entering your home.
  • Timers: Timers can be useful if you don’t want to worry about manually controlling when your awnings are extended or retracted. By setting a timer, it can do the work for you, bringing your awnings in or extending them again at just the right time.
  • Remote Control Systems: A remote control system can be an incredibly convenient feature. These systems can allow you to control your awnings from anywhere in your home or yard with just a push of a button. This way, you can avoid the extra hassle of trying to manually adjust your retractable window awnings.
  • Manual Override Motor: There may come a point when you need to manually operate your motorized window awning. This can be difficult under normal circumstances—but our SOMFY electronic controls offer a solution in the form of a manual override motor. This way, you can easily and effectively operate your window awnings, regardless of the situation.
  • Optional Hood: If you want to protect your awnings and add some extra aesthetic appeal, then a hood could be a good addition. Our Robusta Retractable Window Awnings can come with hoods in a range of different colors, allowing you to find one that will perfectly suit your unique tastes and style. See More
