USA: Patio Awnings: Patio Awning Manufacturers
ABOUT PATIO AWNINGS
There are two main types of patio awning. The most common type is supported by projecting folding arms, and consists of fabric which rolls up when retracted. This type of awning can be motorized. Optional features include rain sensors, wind sensors, and remote controls.
The other type of patio awning is draped over horizontal rods which slide away from the house on horizontal runners. This has the advantage that it can be opened and closed very easily, without power assistance. Also, being horizontal, it provides good headroom. However the folded material does take up some space, and the framework remains in place when the awning is retracted.
