All you need to know about Retractable Awnings

Retractable awnings are equipped with a manual or motorized mechanism that allows them to extend and retract. Manual awnings are operated by a hand-crank, while motorized ones use an electric motor controlled by a switch or remote. Some advanced models even come with sensors that automatically retract the awning based on weather conditions.

Most retractable awnings are water-resistant but not completely waterproof. They can handle light rain showers without any issues. However, during heavy rainfall, some water might seep through the fabric seams or collect on the surface. It’s essential to retract the awning during heavy rain to prevent any potential damage.
Most retractable awnings are designed to withstand moderate winds, typically up to around 20-25 mph (32-40 km/h). However, it’s essential to retract the awning during windy conditions or storms to prevent damage. Some modern retractable awnings come with wind sensors that automatically retract the awning when strong winds are detected.
Yes, regular maintenance is essential to ensure the longevity and smooth operation of your retractable awning. Keep the awning clean, lubricate moving parts if necessary, and inspect it for any signs of wear or damage. Additionally, retract the awning during harsh weather conditions to prevent unnecessary strain on the structure.
Retractable awnings are suitable for use in spring, summer, and early fall when weather conditions are milder. However, in regions with harsh winters or heavy snowfall, it is advisable to retract the awning and store it properly during the winter months to protect it from damage.
