USA: Retractable Awnings: Retractable Awning Manufacturers
ABOUT RETRACTABLE AWNINGS
The advantage of retractable window awnings, compared to fixed window awnings, is that they can be retracted to allow more light into the house during dull weather. They are also more durable, because they can be retracted to avoid high winds, and to reduce weathering.
Retractable awnings are ususally of rectangular shape, and retract by rolling up. For a neater appearance, they may be fitted with a housing into which they roll. This also provides better weather protection.
Retractable awnings may be automated with an electric motor. Optional features include rain sensors, wind sensors, and remote controls.
