Manual awnings open smoothly with a crank handle that is easy to turn. However if you really want luxury we also offer motorised systems, so opening and closing an awning can be as effortless as pressing a switch.
Yes they do. It takes a lot of money and energy for an air conditioner to reduce the indoor temperature by ten degrees on a sunny day. A canopy can do the same job without any power usage or running costs. If you have an air-conditioning unit then consider the savings that an external canopy or awning could bring to your home.

Your awning will probably last a lifetime. We guarantee it for five years, but it should keep going for many more years thereafter. The fabric on an awning may well have suffered a bit from the British weather so in 20 years or so that might be something to consider replacing but the cast aluminium framework should just keep on doing its job for a long long time.
