Create shade

Of course, the main function of an awning is to create a cool spot where you can enjoy your garden or patio during sunny days. In addition to creating shade, an awning offers a few other benefits. A retractable awning is mounted on the facade. Using two arms, the awning is rolled out of its cassette horizontally.ย A folding arm awning can be easily slid in and out. One of the main benefits is that you can block the sun on hot days, but retain a maximum of light during the cooler months by closing the awning.

Experience vs. functionality

An awning does not only protect you from the sun. It also ensures that you can enjoy the wonderful, warm days of summer carefree. An awning is often used as an extension of your home.ย  You can furnish the space under your awning to suit your favorite activity: a nice lounge to relax in, a dining area, barbecue area, or outdoor kitchen. There are countless possibilities. For ease of use, articulated awnings can be completely operated remotely with a remote control or your smartphone.
