Purchasing awnings can be confusing to the first time buyer. Cassettes? Monoblock? retractable? Here are some of the awnings frequently asked questions that customer often ask.
Why Do I need an Awning?
There are normally a couple of reasons why an awning is a great shade of choice. Shade and cooling. Awnings can be installed with a projection of up to 500cm allowing ample shade on a terrace. Awnings can also be installed around windows and angled to provide shade inside at certain times of the day.
What type of awning do I need?
This all depends on personal choice and your budget of course. Cassette Awnings which protect the fabric when closed are sleeker and more modern looking but more expensive. Monoblock awnings are less expensive but dont have the design features of a cassette awning. You need to ask yourself why you need the awning and work from there.
