What Makes an Exterior Window Awning a Retractable Awning?

Retractable window awnings are awnings that can open and close with a hand crank, remote control or at the touch of a switch. Retractable window awnings have the best range of motion and versatility when it comes to guarding your home from the sun. They function from zero degrees to a 165-degree angle out and over your space to provide shade, privacy and style.

Providing Custom Products to Our Clients

The Robusta is the perfect window awning style to increase comfort and lower energy costs. Awnings for windows work by blocking the sun’s rays before they penetrate the glass. The Robusta can cover all or part of your window to provide unparalleled shade and privacy. Exterior window awnings put you in control of the sun’s heat, with cool shade at your fingertips. The Robusta Retractable Window Awning is offered in three hardware colors with over 100+ fabric selections that will accent any home décor.

Your home’s first line of defense against the sun should be exterior. Shade your home with well-placed trees, vine-covered trellises, or wide overhangs such as retractable awnings to help reduce indoor temperature by as much as 20 oF on a hot day!

Get more out of your Robusta Retractable Window Awning with add-on features and options including sun and wind sensors, timers, remote controls and optional hoods to add to the appeal and function of your outdoor shade.

A Range of Options to Meet Your Needs

  • Wind Sensors: High winds can be a potential problem for 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 window awnings to automatically retract, helping to keep them safe.
  • Sun/Wind Sensors: You want to ensure that your home stays comfortable. Manually adjusting your 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 awnings. 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
