Awnings Accessories Range

Our awnings can be outfitted with many useful and attractive additional accessories, including:

  • Wind sensors – offering automated reaction to changing wind conditions.
  • Heating – to enhance the comfort of your patio area when there’s a chill in the air.
  • Lighting – for evening or night-time gatherings.
  • Valances – adding extra visual appeal to your patio.

You can tailor your awning to your needs, with two operating options to choose from. Awnings can be crank operated or motorised. Both are quick and simple solutions, allowing you to precisely extend and retract your canopy as the situation warrants. Motorised retractable canopies might be preferred for customers with disabilities or mobility issues, so be sure to discuss your specific needs with our friendly team.

We ensure the highest possible standards with all of our awnings. All components are manufactured with the most durable materials. Heavy duty aluminium is used for the folding arms, for instance, and all of our awnings come with a 5 year guarantee for ultimate peace of mind.

Do I need a full cassette, semi cassette or open awning?

These descriptions refer to how protected the mechanism and roller are when you’re not using the awning. The type of awning you decide to purchase depends on the type of property you’ll be installing it on and the level of protection the awning will have as a result. We can advise which products are suitable for your design and budget.   

  • OpenOpen awnings have an exposed roller and mechanism, but you may want to incorporate a top cover for added protection, especially if you are prone to frequent or unpredictable bad weather in your area. Open awnings will still provide the same level of sun protection as other types of awnings and will still be of the same high-quality standard. 
  • Semi Cassette: If you have a more sheltered garden or patio, a semi-cassette awning may be sufficient for your needs. A semi-cassette awning is ideal for most situations, delivering a medium level of protection from weather damage and general wear and tear from the elements due to it having half of a cassette which sits above the roll of fabric. 
  • Full Cassette: This type of awning delivers the highest level of protection from the elements, as the roller and the whole arm mechanism are enclosed when the awning is retracted. This shields the whole system from the elements, including heavy rain, and from dirt that can accumulate.  

We also offer a guide to the different types of awnings here. 

How much is an awning?

The cost of an awning will vary depending on model and specifications, and you can determine how factors like size, operation methods and lighting impact prices on the individual product pages of our website.
