Electric Awnings & Motorized Canopies

Retractable  porch awnings  and retractable deck awnings have an amazing lifespan. Frames are tested for years of heavy use, up to 60,000 cycles, with warranties that hit 25 years. Even retractable awning fabric – usually the most vulnerable component on awnings – have up to 10 year warranties and expected 15 year lifespans.

How is such durability possible?

Well, it is partly because of superior components. (We pride ourselves on using only the finest parts from Italy, Germany, Austria, and the United States.) But a lot of the effectiveness is purely physical – retracting an awning protects it from bad weather and damage.

Motorized awnings are the most effective style because they get used more than manual awnings. A lot more. A motorized awning is used 25% more than a manual awning in the same location. That means a motorized awning can have a much longer lifespan than a manual awning.

The key is ease of use. Motorized awnings are a convenience in most locations – window awnings, door and property front awnings, and some patio awnings. But for large awnings – over most patios, pools, eating areas, and other large areas and our enclosures and freestanding awnings – the size and weight of the awning can make it impossible to operate manually. A motorized awning gives the strength and control that you need.

Motorized  commercial awnings  also introduce so many more control options, making it easy and effortless to adjust your motorized awning for perfect shade coverage:

  • Rain, wind, motion, and sunlight sensors for instinctive responses to weather changes

  • Timers and schedules

  • Indoor or outdoor temperature sensors to control heat gain

  • Remote controls with preset positions

  • Plug-in mounted wall switches

  • Optional manual controls

Almost all of our retractable lateral arm awnings are retractable  window awnings  are motorized awnings naturally. Each motorized awning uses the finest quality motors from premier international manufacturers in Italy and France.

  • Self-lubricating, maintenance-free motors

  • Torque-sensing, for taut fabric and better performance

  • Safety tested by Underwriters' Laboratory

  • Integrated with and invisible inside the fabric roller tube
