Retractable Awnings in Leicester, Northampton, Coventry

Stylish and practical, awnings make the perfect addition to any patio or outdoor dining area. They offer much needed shade from the midday sun, and they can even protect you (and your barbecue) from unceremonious summer showers.

Retractable awnings offer even more practicality than their fixed equivalents, because they can be extended or retracted depending on what the weather’s doing. For example, you might want to extend the awning when the sun’s at its strongest but retract it in the evening to make the most of the remaining rays.

Here at Fraser James Blinds, we offer a wonderful array of retractable awnings for gardens and patios. You can choose from a variety of different colours and materials, all of which are weather resistant and UV resistant. And for additional peace of mind, all of our retractable awnings come with a 5-year warranty and are installed by highly-trained professionals, so you can expect outstanding performance for years to come.

Fraser James Blinds offer retractable awnings to customers throughout Leicester, Coventry and Northampton. To learn more about our range of awnings or to book a free home visit, all you have to do is get in touch.

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.
