Awnings have been a valuable tool used by humans since the dawn of civilization. They have protected us from sunburn, rain, and oppressive temperatures. There is no need to worry about awnings ever going out of style for a variety of reasons, namely that they can be as attractive as they are functional. Here at Aero Shade, we have been helping people discover the perfect awning for their home or business for more than 50 years, and will continue to provide you with high-quality window treatments at the very best prices. Still not sure awnings are the right choice for your needs? Read on, and let’s see if we can change that!
Types of Awnings
One of the great things about the awnings we produce is that they come in a variety of fabrics, hardware, designs and functionality. That means that we can help you assess your particular window treatment requirements and figure out which type of awning is best for you. We offer plenty of options that we are happy to show you, and you can also design your own custom awning should you choose. Let’s take a look at the basic types of awnings and their assorted functions:
These are fixed coverings that you usually see perched above entranceways, patio, decks, and windows of homes or businesses. Their steel or aluminum frame is fastened to the side of the building, with its fabric, typically canvas, stretched tightly over the frame, providing a secured structure.
Slide Wire Cable Awnings
Composed of flexible fabric panels fixed between two parallel cables, these awnings can cover a large area over decks and patios simply by adding as many panels as needed. They can be adjusted by a manual hand-crank, or they can be motorized and operated with the use of a remote control. These can be easily adjusting for the onset of inclement weather.
Manual Retractable Awnings
These are simple rectangular awnings seen on many decks and patios. They provide wonderful shade from the sun and rain, and can be raised to cling against the building with the turn of either a manual hand-crank or a rope and pulley system.
Motorized Retractable Awnings
Like above, but with a motorized retraction system, allowing for easy adjustments with the use of a remote control.
There are obviously many varieties of awnings available to suit your needs, but let’s examine what it actually is that awnings do. Awnings are simply shelters constructed from durable fabric and sturdy hardware. They protect you and your guests from direct sun, heat, and precipitation. They can be placed over doors, windows, decks, patios, and porches.
In addition to providing useful protection from the elements, awnings also can add a stylish touch to your home. We have fabric choices to suit every taste, so your awning can be brightly colored, patterned, a more muted tone, or whatever you prefer. Awnings can match the existing aesthetic of your home or business, or you can use it to add a dash of contrasting decoration – it’s your choice.
Another perk of our awnings are that they can help you save money on your energy bills, Awnings can help you keep the temperature down in your home during the sweltering Southern California summers by simply being installed above your windows. When awnings are open, they help shade your home from excessive sunshine, keeping you cool and comfortable in your home. Awnings are also low-maintenance systems. We use high-quality, weatherproof materials, so you don’t have to worry about your awning fading as a result of direct sunlight. You can easily take your awning down for an annual cleaning, simply wiping it down with soap and water.
