Manual Awnings

Whether you’re budget conscious or you simply take pleasure in cranking out your sunshade, a manual awning is just what you need.

The manual retractable awnings offered here at Fraser James Blinds share the same premium fabrics and build quality that you would expect from an electric awning – the only difference is that you will have a crank instead of a motor. Don’t let that put you off though, manual retractable awnings are very easy to use and look just as good out there on your patio.

Here are some of the reasons why many customers choose manual awnings:

  • A budget-friendly choice
  • An array of different colours and fabrics to choose from
  • No need to worry about batteries or electrical faults

Here at Fraser James Blinds, we deliver and install manual patio awnings all over Leicester, Coventry, Northampton and the surrounding areas, ensuring that each and every one of our customers receives a stellar service. 

Once your awning has been installed, you will be given an aftercare leaflet by a member of our team, detailing exactly what you need to do to keep your awning in great condition for years to come. 

If you have a query about our range of manual awnings, get in touch with us today.

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.
